Paschal HS

Congratulations to Kyle Smith Hanna on placing 2nd at the District Tennis Meet this past Monday and Tuesday to advance to the Regional meet on April 27-28 at the Arlington Tennis Center! In the semi-final match, he faced an opponent that was a higher seed, and had bested Kyle in the fall. Kyle was able to quickly adapt, allowing him to outduel his opponent in 3 sets, in a match that took nearly 2 hours to complete.

This was part of a team effort that saw the boys claim 2nd overall team for the district. This included Kyle and Griffin Quinones in boys singles. For boys doubles, the combo's of John Nolan and Cooper Fitch, as well as Rhys Claassen and Zachary Jacobus also had several victories to help in the overall boys team total earning 2nd place. Our Mixed doubles duo of John O'Neil and Maria Gober also made it to the semifinals.

Big congratulations goes out to the whole team for their efforts this year and at the District Tournament.

Benbrook HS Girls' Athletic Coordinator: Esoleta Lofton

Graduate of Slaton High School in Slaton, Texas.

A Former University of Texas basketball player.

During my many years of coaching and teaching,

there have been many games played, many counseling sessions,

many championships, many playoff bouts, many disappointments. But yet, I press on toward the prize because I must…there are young lives at stake. My philosophies as a coach are so familiar to other coaches that hold sports and athletics near and dear to their hearts. We get pure joy and satisfaction out of finding ways to motivate student-athletes and mold them into the individual that will one day be successful and acceptable in today’s society. Athletics has a direct link to the development of our country’s student-athletes. As a coach, there are three things that I believe in: Commitment to giving 100%, honesty, and never lose sight of the responsibilities of a Coach. I believe athletics is an amazing channel to teach important life lessons that are so detrimental to and for all areas of life. It teaches perseverance, discipline, enthusiasm, and passion. The most crucial responsibilities of a coach are to teach responsibility and accountability. I hold myself to the highest level of accountability when it comes to molding our student-athletes. In turn I hope to instill in them the values and disciplines that can be taken and used after graduating from High School. By embracing the concepts of perseverance, sacrifice, and accountability student-athletes become prepared for life. They graduate high school, they obtain degrees, and Championships are won!

See you on the court, field, and track.

Go Bobcats! Family, All In!

Benbrook HS Boys' Athletic Coordinator: Cody Slater

Graduate of Olney High School, in Olney, Texas.

A Former Midwestern State University Football Player.

This year marks Coach Slaters twenty-third year as a teacher/coach.

Through the years he has had many coaching stops.

Towns: Wichita Falls, Petrolia, Kaufman, Olney,

Arlington, Miles, and Benbrook.

I am married to Misty Slater and we have two beautiful girls

Mia and Randee. To me there is nothing greater than being a part of a FAMILY, and I consider us all (athletes, coaches, sports programs, cheerleaders, emerald line, student body, booster club, administrators, faculty, parents, and community) a part of our BOBCAT FAMILY.

Our profession is the greatest profession in the word. There is no greater reward than being able to teach our student-athletes character, integrity, sportsmanship, and perseverance through athletics. Our athletic programs will always be about “more than just winning” we want to prepare our young men and women for life after high school. We do this by being intentional about teaching life lessons and instilling good values through our athletic programs. We strive to develop these young men and women to be reliable so they can be successful as future workers, wives, mothers, husbands and fathers.

The relationships we build will last a lifetime.
