Congrats Coach Lombard

This is pretty amazing. My high school won the Class 3A state championship (again). With the title game, our coach won his 1000th game (and 14th state championship)--and he is only 55 yrs old. He has a winning percentage is almost .920 You can't write a script better than that. You can read a whole article about him here, but for starters just consider these facts:

  • No team he has coached - two boys or 30 girls - won fewer than 25 games in a season.

  • His "losingest" season came in 1991-92, when the Lady Eagles lost eight games. That team won his first Class 3A championship.

  • There have been 17 girls teams in UIL Texas high school history that have recorded unbeaten seasons. Lombard has coached three of those (1984 and 1985 at Nazareth and 1996 at Canyon).

  • He has won titles in Class B, Class A, Class 3A and Class 4A.

  • He has a 61-9 record as a boys coach, leading Nazareth to back-to-back state runner-up finishes the two seasons before moving to Canyon High.

  • In his last two seasons at Naz, Lombard compiled a 129-9 record and coached in four state championship games.

  • His 2002-2003 Canyon team produced two Division I players and was declared USA Today's national champions.
