There’s something about new girls basketball head coach that one can’t deny. Call it confidence. Most coaches have it. David Norris definitely does, having served in many capacities in education. He was the Assistant Principal at Hays High School for five years.

“I’ve coach it all, even tennis,” Norris said. Include softball and baseball on that list. He has been coaching and teaching for 32 years. At Leakey High School he was the Athletic Director and head coach of both football and basketball. Add Lake Travis to that list. He was assistant men’s and women’s. coach for Mary-Hardin Baylor.

The administrative skills he has learned over the years, serves him well. Most impressive is his ease of working with both girls and boys. Most recently he was the San Marcos Boys Basketball Coach after serving as the Girls Basketball coach there.


Killeen Roos jump over Lady Tigers basketball


It was like looking at a mirror image as the Dripping Springs Lady Tigers took on the visiting Killeen Lady Roos. Each team would push the ball up the court when they could and if not would settle in to work the ball around for a good shot. The edge in the 58-54 loss to the Lady Roos was Killeen had players that shot more fundamentally sound form shots that gives you a higher percentage of success than did the Lady Tigers. It was a good experience game for the Lady Tigers as they were playing people with athletic skills and quickness, so it upped the Lady Tigers game as well, including the need to be able to finish a game strong. In the end Killeen would make the Lady Tigers pay for the few mistakes they would make in the final quarter and give the Lady Tigers their second loss in ten games.
