The Cuero baseball team will return all but two starters next season from a team that has clinched the District 28-3A championship.
But Scott Holder won't be coaching them.
Holder is leaving Cuero at the end of the school year to become the head baseball coach at College Station High, a new Class 3A school, which will open in the fall.
"This will allow me to be closer to my (family)," Holder said. "It's hard for me to leave Cuero. The school was great, the community was great and of course, the players were great. This is the best place I've ever been."
Holder is in his 11th season as a head baseball coach and has led his team to the playoffs every season. He has also coached at Cameron Yoe and Thorndale has an overall record of 267-86-3.
Holder led Thorndale to the state tournament in 2005 and 2006 and the Bulldogs won the Class 1A state title in 2005.
Holder is in his sixth season at Cuero and has a 120-44-3 record that includes six playoff appearances.
The Gobblers are 19-5-3 this season and 10-1 in district. They close out district play Friday night at Gonzales.
"This has been a good job," Holder said. "Whoever gets this job is going to get a great job."
