Galena Park ISD would like to congratulate Coach Sam Benitez, North Shore Senior High basketball coach, for being named Coach of the Year for the Greater Houston Area.
In his first year as head coach, the North Shore Mustangs went 33-4 overall, 12-2 in district and won first place at the Goose Creek ISD and Pasadena ISD Tournaments. The Mustangs went 56 days without a single loss and even earned the title of state’s top-ranked team at one point during the season. They ended the regular season as Region 3 Champions and advanced to the playoffs where they played in the State Final Four Semi-Finals.
Congratulations, Coach Benitez!
