BEEVILLE – Katina Walker, the girls’ athletic coordinator, has resigned from her position at A.C. Jones High School and will be heading back home.

“The family and I have decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to move back home. We have a house in Pflugerville, which is only five minutes from my parents,” Walker said.

Walker came to Beeville as the head basketball coach in 2010 and then took over as the girls’ coordinator the following year.

The girls’ programs have run through some rough moments over the last few years, but things stabilized under coach Walker, who has the respect and love from her charges, according to JHS coaches and players.

“Coach Walker has been a huge asset to BISD. Ever since her arrival in 2010, our girls’ basketball program has made significant improvements,” said BISD Athletic Director Troy Moses.

“She has been a great role model for the students she coaches and has done a great job at teaching them that you can’t get anywhere in life without hard work.”

Walker coached the Lady Trojan basketball program back into the playoffs and made a deep run into the postseason with a senior laden group this year.

“I wish I could just dig and pick up Beeville and replant it in Pflugerville. From the moment I came to Beeville, I was welcomed with open arms from the girls, parents, staff and community,” Walker said.

“I am grateful for all of the Beeville support my family and I have gotten.”

Walker also brought up the feeling of family, togetherness and spirit in the Lady Trojan programs.

“I hope that the spirit will continue to grow each season. It was such a beautiful feeling and a sight to see all the faces in the stands. I truly believe it was the community who got us over the top,” Walker said.

“Thank you for everything.”
