MHS’ Vassar Named Pitcher of the Year in District 10-5A; Complete10-5A Honors Revealed

By TSB Staff

Both of McKinney’s Class 5A baseball programs have been recognized by coaches in District 10-5A, touting seven first team selections and three, second team selections between McKinney High and McKinney Boyd. Notably, Brad Vassar of McKinney High has been named pitcher of the year.

The Lions weren’t expected to do much in District 10-5A, a district replete with size and talent. The Lions are a 5A school with 4A numbers, and after struggling in 2012 while participating in 4A, no one expected much from McKinney High. Veteran head coach Jeremy Price and passionate leadership enabled the Lions to persevere and exceeded expectations in 2013. McKinney finished the 2013 season with a record of 19-13, and reached the Area round of the playoffs, only to be swept in a best of three series against Rockwall.


McKinney Boyd finished in the fifth spot in 10-5A with a final record of 13-16. Under the direction of head coach Brooke Court, the Broncos started off the 2013 with a 6-1 record, but fell into hard times due to defensive mistakes and a and a lack of run support. Despite their woes, the Broncos were in playoff contention throughout the season, but fell just short behind cross-town rival, McKinney High.
