Monsignor Kelly Catholic High School senior Josh Lamb signed his national letter

Monsignor Kelly Catholic High School senior Josh Lamb signed his national letter of intent to play baseball at the University of Texas-San Antonio. With his team, coaches, fellow classmates, family and friends in attendance, Lamb thanked all who had helped him reach this goal before signing.

Coach Ray Woodard

Lamar University head football coach Ray Woodard will not return for the 2017 season, Director of Athletics Jason Henderson announced Nov. 21.

“We would like to thank Coach Woodard for all that he has done for the Lamar University football program,” said Henderson. “It still remains our goal to compete for championships and to put our student-athletes in a position to be successful on the field and in the classroom.”


Some really good stuff is in store for both hunters and fishermen this week in East and Southeast Texas. 

First of all, we’ve got a Canadian front moving through this weekend with some pretty cold temperatures. That front will be moving plenty of ducks and geese into Southeast Texas. It’ll also jumpstart the rut in the Pineywoods. 


Up 2-0 at the break, all Lamar University volleyball needed was one more set win to lock a spot in the Southland Conference Tournament, but Incarnate Word flipped the script at the intermission to down the hometown Cardinals 3-2 (25-21, 37-35, 20-25, 23-25, 11-15) at McDonald Gym on Nov. 19.

The loss and Southeastern Louisiana’s win over New Orleans eliminated the Cardinals from tournament contention.
