Shepherd honors athletes
By Tony Farkas
SHEPHERD — It was a banner year for athletics in the Shepherd ISD, with numerous firsts for the different sports.
At the annual athletic banquet on May 9, Athletic Director Miles Robison said the 2022-23 year will go down as one of the best years ever for the program, if not the best year.
He said most teams made the playoffs, and the Shepherd Lady Pirates softball teams won the district, bi-district and area championships for the first time. Additionally, 13 of the players were picked for all-district spots.
Other accomplishments include:
•breaking the school record in cross country and participating in regionals;
•earning a spot in the volleyball playoffs, which had not been done in 22 years;
•the junior varsity football team won district, and the varsity quarterback, H.D. Green, broke 1,000 yards rushing;
•the baseball team reached the playoffs;
•the powerlifting team dominated every meet, and sent Celine Orozco to state; and
•the tennis squad made the regional tournament for the first time.
