Another Big Six basketball season has come and gone, leaving in its path the memories of a district championship, the rise of a new playoff contender, thrilling overtime victories, late season comeback and heroic defeats.
To honor the concluding season, the Progress Times Sports Page recognizes the top coaches and players from the Big Six schools. The recognition comes via the on court performances, giving honors to the boys and girls coach of the year, player of the year and first and second teams.
Big Six Boys
Coach of the Year:
Andy Saenz, PHS
The second year coach turned around a district cellar dweller and took them to never before seen heights, winning 24 games and finishing fourth in district play. Saenz also competed well with the district’s traditional powerhouse teams, sweeping McHi and splitting with Memorial. The coach worked his boys hard during the offseason and it paid off as Mario De La Garza, Dominick Garza and the rest of the team helped make basketball relevant at Palmview.
