Bridgeport school announces sports coaches lineup

New hires join familiar faces
BRIDGEPORT – Last week, athletic director Scott Darwood announced the sports teams coaching lineup for the Mustangs and Fillies this year and the list includes some new hires to complement the school’s existing high school and middle school coaching staff. 
Once again Samantha Torres and Caitlin Huber will lead the charge for the high school Fillies softball team, Darwood said, while longtime coaches Gabe Gonzalez, Carlos Lopez and Chris Gonzalez will continue leading the high school boys’ soccer team. 
 
“Eric Schmidt will lead the high school track and field team along with his assistant staff of Mike Selle Jr., Royce Turner, and volunteer coaches Mark Ward, and Mike Selle Sr., and Keirsten Stansbury,” Darwood said.
 
Miguel Garza has been hired as a one-year interim coach to lead the middle school track and field team. Garza will be assisted by Bambi Martinez.
 
“Middle school boys’ and girls’ basketball will also be played this spring due to COVID issues,” said Darwood.
 
Craig Burke will coach the middle school boys’ squad on a one-year interim basis. Longtime head coach Scott Sattler will lead the middle school girls’ program with help from assistant Jeff Jackson. 
 
Kate Luttrell has been promoted to head coach of high school girls’ basketball. Her assistant this season will be Caitlin Huber. 
 
“Father and son high school head boys’ basketball coaches Dan and Cameron Cavadini requested and were granted a one-year leave of absence,” Darwood said.
 
COVID has caused the basketball season to play out from May 17 to June 19, which will not allow the Cavadini’s to run their ranch. 
 
“Mike Garza has stepped up to fill in as head basketball coach on a one-year interim contract,” Darwood.
 
Garza will be assisted by head football coach John McDougal for a one-year stint as well. 
 
“We are glad to announce these new hires and are pleased with the response of people willing to step up and coach in our high school and middle school programs,” said Darwood, “even if it is only on a one-year basis to help out our student athletes in this very trying year under very unusual circumstances.”
