  1. Yeah, I figured so. Hope he does well, not much to go on, but people can be proven wrong. The first game would be a good way to start. If not, then it just falls right in line with the usual. And the questionable choices are still happening. Seems like we scratch our heads in wonder rather than feeling good about the school/county choices.
  2. Are you all on the right page???
  3. Alice Lloyd assistant Kevon Honeycutt named Lee High's HC. http://www.timesnews.net/Basketball/2019/06/17/L.html?ci=stream&lp=2&p=1&fbclid=IwAR3Nz5O6LSLjKBETjx0-QmxobQzAlcbv5THREyS3Z7F6mZ7WMvD1on500rs
  4. They made a deep run last year, losing in the finals, and lost a 1 run game in Regional semis to the eventual State champs the year before. Playing in a "2A conference" must not be hurting them too bad. Baseball in this region is pretty good.
  5. Official release: Alec Haston named new Lee High head coach. Haston was an assistant coach at Cumberland County and before that at Soddy-Daisy. http://www.timesnews.net/Football/2019/05/10/Haston-to-take-charge-of-Lee-football.html?ci=stream&lp=1&p=1
  6. Don Williams was Lee High's coach through the 90s when they had their best years and coached Pennington through the 70-80s. Never played and they didn't have a football team period.
  7. Well, I'll have to say that Pennington has a pop. of around 1700 and Jonesville around 900...so, seems more likely you'd probably see more Pennington at events and such.
  8. Agreed, that battle would be fun to watch, but that's all I'd say. I still long for a day when we can get past Pennington/Jonesville and rally around Lee High as communities coming together for the kids. Starts with the parents.
  9. So many complain about the same things, but when the same people run or you have person for a position, it will never change. We so desperately need people to step up and step in to fight against the old regime.
  10. I hate hearing this stuff. I'm so sick of those excuses. It doesn't matter where you go, in some way those people will always be a problem. Success has been found at Lee under the right circumstances. Sanders had a good thing going before going back home to Mississippi....Williams retired at a bad time..right before the season started. Girls basketball had a run for a while not long ago. Boys have seen off and on success over the years. Roger Morris proved the baseball could be turned around...and he did it in just 2 years with a program that had a long losing history, unfortunately he retired quick. Softball had some years under Twigg before he retired. Lee used to have a strong track program. I hear so often... I do understand better opportunities exist and I don't blame anyone for reaching higher. There are good people here though and I believe in due time, if the right people step up (and I've seen some encouraging news in some good, young ones running for office this upcoming election), then good things can come. It takes people who are willing to settle for a little less I guess and to have real thick skin...but they do exist. I hope people see some good in finding places like Lee to work and turn things around.
  11. He may have been on the staff but he wasn't head coach, Palko (another they shouldn't have let go) was the head man. Coomer was the HC the year before Palko and I believe he was a coordinator under Sanders.
  12. Boys basketball vacancy too as Coomer resigned also... https://www.leedaily.com/2019/03/15/coaching-changes-student-recognition-lcps-board-march/
