⚾NEW HEAD BASEBALL COACH AT VHS⚾ As some of you may know, Trent Pearson recently resigned as the Vernon Lions Head Baseball Coach. We have looked at multiple resumes and are pleased to announce that the best possible fit for the job is a coach from right here in Vernon, TX. Vernon Lion Family, please join me in congratulating Austin Thompson for being selected to lead our Vernon HS Baseball Program. There is no doubt Coach Thompson has the right mix of enthusiasm and knowledge to take the Lion Baseball Program to the next level. Coach Thompson also has a heart for kids. He spent time, on a strictly volunteer basis, working with our baseball players this last spring. Going the extra mile to help our program and cultivate relationships with these kids while expecting nothing in return, made the choice to go with Coach Thompson an easy one. We look forward to the future of Lion Baseball under Coach Thompson's leadership. Congrats, Coach Thompson, and welcome aboard! Go Lions!
Day 1 of our summer camps were a success! We loved working with our students and can't wait for tomorrow!
We encourage parents of our VHS football players to attend this important informational meeting.
If you are the parent of a high school athlete(9th-12th grade) who will be participating in football this coming season, there will be a meeting in Fulton Gym this coming Monday, June 26, at 7:00. We strongly encourage parents to attend. If your son isn't sure about football this year, but is thinking it is a possibility, we encourage you to attend. Some topics that will be discussed are: the last 4 weeks of summer strength and conditioning, the upcoming 2-A-Day schedule, our revised 2023 football schedule (some times have changed), and the 2023 athletic policy as it relates to football. We will also introduce a couple of new faces that you will see on staff this year. Again, be there if you can. We understand that everyone is busy this time of year, so we will keep this meeting under 30 minutes. We appreciate all you guys do for the program. Thank you for sharing your kids with us. TPL. Coach Sherrill
