  1. Wow, all quiet over here so I guess the coaches did a good job of picking players. They are tearing each other apart over on the 5A page.
    I want to congratulate Coach Gowen of Artesia for being named coach of the year. I have seen her in action twice this year and am very impressed. She analyzes the opposing team quicker than any coach I’ve ever seen. She then makes adjustments on her team to take advantage of the other teams defense. She did this successfully against us.
    Looking at the Artesia website I see that most of their team is returning next year. Most of our team is also returning so we will be meeting again at some point next November. Should be a great re-match.
    Good job Bulldogs!

  2. I am so happy that St.Pius’ Sara Weber was named player of the year! A very well deserved honor for this amazing young lady. An incredible athlete, student, and person. She is a class act on and off the court. Although known for being quiet, she obviously lets her volleyball skills do the talking. Congratulations to Sara, her coaches, and St. Pius!

  3. St. Pius Parent,

    Thanks for your positive words for our Coach here in Artesia. It has been a long road and one that Coach Gowen and her main assistant, Pam Lynn, relished along the way. I was talking to another parent last week and we noticed the same thing as you – we will hopefully see each other come next November. For now, know that your girls and coaches are highly respected.
