New Eagle Coach

by Mike Organ

Coach Jason Holcomb has experienced little turnover in his staff for the upcoming school year. Head volleyball coach Krystal Hacker has moved to Jacksonville to join Donna Raglin. Tiffany Robertson has moved up to the head coaching position. Coach Grimes will be assisting her in volleyball.

On the boy's side, Rick Bivins moved to Victoria to join Mickey Finley's staff. Dylan Conway has been hired to take his place. Coach Conway is a graduate of Texas A&M. Conway went to high school at Rockport-Fulton down on the coast. He will be teaching four sections of World History.

Coach Conway was married last Saturday to Jessica, whom he met at college. She teaches English in Cameron. Conway was on the A&M track team as an undergraduate. Conway's event was the discus. He qualified for the national NCAA meet with his 22nd rank in the nation. Coach Conway will work with football and baseball at Lexington this season.

Conway's philosophy is to strive to get the maximum effort from all athletes. Never let them become complacent with their performance. They should always try to better their last effort.
