Glasgow’s Flaten Selected AD Of Year
Glasgow High School athletic director Brenner Flaten has been selected by the Montana Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association as the 2022 Montana Overall AD of the Year. Annually, the MIAAA recognizes an AD of the Year in each of the four Classifications (AA, A, B, and C) as well as an overall selection.
The overall AD of the Year is an all-class recognition that is made up of 182 member schools. In the fall of 2021, Flaten became only the fourth Montana AD in history to earn the distinction of certified master athletic administrator by the National Interscholastic Athletic Administration. Flaten is the current president of District 2B and vice president of the Class B association. He is a current MCA Clinic chairmen and serves on numerous state-wide AD committees.
He is a past President of the NE MIAAA Chapter where he was honored as their region’s AD of the year in 2017-18. He has served as tournament director for 46 MHSA postseason events during the past nine years including playoff football, district and divisional volleyball, basketball, and track and field as well as divisional wrestling, softball and golf.
The MIAAA has been selecting AD of the Year awards since 1977. Flaten is only the second athletic director ever from District 2B to win overall AD of the Year in Montana.
Malta High School’s Scott King earned the same recognition in 2017. Glasgow High School has only had one other recipient in the past 47 years. Bob Farrell was overall Montana AD of the Year in 1980, when the Scotties were in the Eastern A Conference. At the end of their annual meeting in Missoula, the MIAAA elevated Flaten from the Class B director position to president of the state-wide organization.
