A New Era In Canyon Girl’s Basketball
So, it recently was announced that Joe Lombard was retiring as head coach for the Lady Eagles in Canyon.Having gone to Canyon this was big news for me. I never got to play for him but I still couldn't help but notice his awesomeness.
His overall record was 1,379 wins and only 133 losses. That is simply amazing. On and to add 19 state championships. I mean this guy was untouchable.
My first thought is who could fill his shoes? I mean his numbers are so crazy good. Whoever it will be has a lot to live up to.
So imagine my surprise today when I saw an announcement on Facebook. It said Tate Lombard named Canyon Lady Eagles Head Coach.
Wait? What? Tate? Lombard? This has to be a dream. A new era in Canyon with what would have to be some of the same great results. Another Lombard. I mean he has been the assistant coach for the team this past season. So, yes it makes sense. A lot of sense.
Pinch me. I can’t imagine the apple fell far from that tree and Canyon applauds you. I am so happy to see the tradition will be continuing in Canyon with another Lombard in the lead.
