— Pinkerton takes reins for Ladycats basketball

Staff Report

The Aledo Independent School District has hired Mike Pinkerton as head coach for the Ladycats high school basketball program. 

Pinkerton comes to Aledo from Granbury High School, where he was first assistant for the Lady Pirates basketball team under legendary head coach Leta Andrews. 

Coach Pinkerton also served as the head girls’ track coach in Granbury. 

His previous coaching stops have included Mansfield High, Maypearl and as a graduate assistant coach at Texas A&M -  Kingsville. 

Coach Pinkerton also brings assistant coach Staci Henyon to Aledo, who formerly coached at Trinity Valley School in Fort Worth.

Former Aledo coach Rusty Johnson, who led the Ladycats to their first state tournament appearance in the 2012-13 season, will take on a rebuilding project at Northwest High School. 

Johnson was the head coach for the Ladycats for the past four years.

 

Hardison joins Aledo pair on state roster 

Staff Report

Brock’s Haley Hardison was recently named to the 2012-13 Class 2A All-State Softball Team by the The Texas Girls Coaches Association (TGCA). Hardison was a junior during the 2012-13 season.

Hardison is joined on the elite roster by Aledo’s Haylee Bowden and Lauren Craine, who were named to the Class 4A all-state roster.    The teammates were in their junior and sophomore year, respectively, in 2012-13.

TGCA member coaches nominate potential selectees. The selections were made last week at meetings held in state tourney week.

 

Mickelson leaves Open for daughter’s graduation 

ARDMORE, Pa. (AP) — Phil Mickelson always knew he would be home in San Diego the day before the U.S. Open at Merion. 

Wet weather put him home a little earlier.

His daughter, Amanda, is graduating from the eighth grade on Wednesday and is a featured speaker. 

Mickelson left early due to rain at Merion, giving him a few days of practice in pristine weather.

He will fly back after the ceremony, in time for him to tee off at 7:11 a.m. at Merion.

Amanda is his oldest daughter. She was born the day after the 1999 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2, where Mickelson carried a beeper and pledged to withdraw if his wife had gone into labor. That was the first of his record five runner-up finishes in the U.S. Open.
