W.T. White High School baseball team

Every year for the past 30 years the W.T. White High School baseball team has made it to the playoffs, advancing to postseason play. The Longhorn community credits much of that success to longtime coach David “Shep” Shepherd. His current and former players honored him with a new outfield banner.

Caroline Frattaroli

Caroline Frattaroli, a junior at The Cambridge School of Dallas, competed in her third state golf tournament April 24-25 in Killeen even though she was feeling sick. She finished in 12th place, narrowly missing a top-10 finish. It wasn’t until after the tournament that Frattaroli was diagnosed with mononucleosis.
