High Schools: Outside the Box, Sept. 21
From inside the lines to out, Express-News staff writer Terrence Thomas takes a look back and a look ahead at the high school sports landscape:
250: Career wins for Clark volleyball coach Melissa Miller, who reached the milestone during the Cougars’ District 28-6A victory over Brennan on Sept. 11. Miller is in her third season at the helm of her alma mater, which she helped lead to a Class 6A state championship in 2003. She previously coached for seven seasons at Holmes.
300: Wins for Boerne Champion tennis coach Joey Cantu, who accomplished the mark during Tuesday’s district triumph against Kennedy. Cantu has coached for 11 years at Champion and previously coached seven seasons at Boerne High.
350: Career wins for Holy Cross volleyball coach Ruben Calderon, who reached the feat during the Knights’ triumph versus Houston Lutheran South at the Carrollton Prince of Peace tournament on Sept. 1. Calderon has led Holy Cross to the TAPPS state tournament each of the past three seasons, twice losing in the final in five sets. He previously coached at Providence.
