Little Cypress Mauriceville High School Coach, Vicki Castino, was named Golf Coach of the Year by the Texas Girls Coaches Association during a conference in Arlington this summer. During the Sept. 8, meeting of the LCM CISD Board of Trustees, she was recognized for this outstanding achievement.

Castino has been Head Coach of the girl’s golf team for 20 years and during that time has posted some pretty impressive achievements. Her teams have been District Champs 12 years, Region Qualifiers 16 years, Regional Champions one year and one team was a State Qualifier. Five individual players have gone to Regional and three individuals have been State Qualifiers. With that impressive record behind her, she amassed over 600 points, qualifying her for the Coach of the Year honor.

It was mentioned with a chuckle during her introduction at the Board meeting, that Coach Castino is deep into her team’s volleyball season as the Board was recognizing her for her prowess as a golf coach. Coach Castino is just a few games away from her 500th volleyball win. Whatever season she’s in, you know that you will see a well-coached team when one her teams take to the court or the course.

Coach Castino shows the plaque she was awarded in Arlington at the Texas Girls Coaches Asociation for 2014 Golf Coach of the Year.
