Head football coach and athletic director Windy Williams received a 7-0
vote to extend his contract till Jan. 1999.
There was an outpouring of community support for Williams at the school
board meeting, which was standing room only.
"There were so many people we strongly considered moving the meeting to
accommodate everyone," said Mike Fletcher, acting superintendent.
Coach Williams seemed happy with the outcome of the meeting.
"You have to have the support of the community be effective," said
"We plan to coach some kids (next year), nothing changes. We are looking
forward to the kids coming up next year and hope to have some fun."
Williams led the Mean Green to an undefeated district championship.
Williams also coached a team that placed 10 first team all-district
players, six second team all-district players, 11 academic all-districts
players and the offensive and defensive MVP for district 3-3A.
Williams also had the opportunity to coach his son, Garrett Williams,
during Garrett's senior year.
Coach Martina Carrillo has been head coach of the Lady Lobo volleyball
team for the past two years. In this time she has had a record of 48-18
and gone to the semifinals in the 3-A state tournament. Over the last
five years Carrillo has had two state finalist teams, one semifinalist
team, a regional finalist team and a district runner up team and an
overall record of 136-35. Carrillo has also coached one state MVP and
eight all starters.
An impressive resume, however it will not be furthered here in Monahans.
Monday morning Coach Carrillo turned in her resignation, which was
accepted by the school board.
"We had a successful season," said Carrillo, "Good things happen for
players, like awards and honors, and good thing happen for coaches, like
job offers. This was the best volleyball team I have ever coached. We
did good things all year."
Carrillo is excited about going to the area where she is from.
"I'm from South Texas. I know lots of athletes and coaches from that
area and I should be as happy there as I was here, she said."
Carrillo was happy to see three of her Loboes make the All-State team.
"Leah was great on offense, Randie and Crystal did an outstanding job
on defense. Making all state is not about stats. It's about team work,
attitude and how the girl works with the rest of the team and coaches."
