Bishop’s JK Moody to Be Honored at South Texas Winter Baseball Banquet

Bishop’s JK Moody will be honored at the 12th Annual South Texas Winter Baseball Banquet this month as one of 2015 South Texas High School Coaches of the Year.

Moody had the second-ranked Badgers (29-11-2) at the state tournament and in the finals for the first time in school history. Before falling to West, 4-3, on June 11 at The Dell Diamond, Bishop dispatched Lyford, Hebbronville, Odem, Comfort, Lago Vista, and Edgewood for an 11-3 playoff record.

The Badgers emerged from District 31-3A with a 6-3 record as the No. 2 playoff seed behind undefeated Banquete.

Senior catcher Nick Colecio, senior first baseman Austin Munoz, senior shortstop Kobrey Garcia, junior outfielder Aaron Cardona, junior second baseman Noe Garza, and sophomore outfielder Rico Trevino were Texas Sportswriters Association all-state selections.

Colecio, Garcia, and Cardona earned all-state mention from the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association.

Cardona, Trevino and junior utility man Dalton Horner made the all-state tournament team.

Mike Filla, Daniel Pierce, and P.J. Williams served alongside Moody on Bishop’s 2015 coaching staff.

The 2016 South Texas Winter Baseball Banquet is presented by the Corpus Christi Caller-Times and iHeartMEDIA. Tickets for the January 14 event at the Solomon P. Ortiz Center are on sale now at the Whataburger Field Box Office. To order by phone, call 361-561-HOOK (4665).
