Can you believe this move? I can it was going to happen. That team is illegal as well. Another demonstration of how parents influence the school. All I say is they better have their ducks in a row. The only reason they werent thrown to Uil on eligibility rules was cause of the respect for pinky. Now it's game on. I'm here to clean up this town like it or leave baby!!!!

If you blame the coach then you must blame your parents for all the imperfections in your life. It's your parents fault your not a millionaire or that you don't have the life. It's the same as the coach she didn't choke with a bat in her hand nor did she let the other team score on her mistake. Come on now. This is a example of Mike Gonzalez and Mandy Castillo trying to control things for their daughters. Get real man!! Politics at its best!!!

Yes Mike Gonzalez is pathetic, heard he's even given some private lessons to one of his players mom...hmmm. So now its up to DeloSantos, win or get demoted. Now it makes sense why the dropped the name Pride.

Really? Two news articles that give us no clear indication as to what really is behind this move. Anyone who knows Pinky knows her passion for softball, we know her passion for doing a job well. All those who attempt to trash her, your attempts are in vain. You can't. Same for Hector Gonzales, Mike Gonzales and all the other coaches who have fallen into this mess by association. Yes, their kids attend SGISD. Yes, their girls are athletes. Yes, they love their kids and yes, they want what is best. Who didn't have a child on the team? Olinda Salazar, had no personal interest. It was always about success for Pinky. Making a positive impact on the life of a young girls future to reach for something more than what Kingsville has to offer. So, now ask 'who was the beneficiary of this move'? Certainly wasn't the school or the softball program. It wasn't De Los Santos. Who? Doesn't seem professional anymore. Looks more like a personal, vindictive move from where I'm standing. An angry mother, who is also a board member and who's daughter didn't have 'alot' of playing time during the playoffs. A superintendent who enables 'nothingness' within the Santa Gertrudis school district and feels the uncontrollable need to exercise her authority and power. "Stinky Pinky", nope. Attacks on Hector Gonzales, Mike Gonzales, Thomas De Los Santos and Matt Gonzales, nope. None of these people had the power to effectively make this change. The SGISD Board of Directors, one in particular and the SGISD Superintendent... yep. That's where I'm looking for obvious reasons.
I agree too

This is completely a personal matter that makes the Athletic director and SGISD look awful. Dear Mr. AD please provude some true reasonavle facts for your unreasonable demotion of this coach. I will not hold my breath, because you will not be able to provide this information

He can't openly provide a reason because he would in turn probably lose his job for "spilling the beans". I would love to hear the truth come out on this one. From what I've heard Pinky was the only good coach they have there. Never have I heard anything good about the over controlling AD and Super Intendant. They both need to go.

You're right. This is very clear. Hector Gonzales was left out in the cold to take the heat. Mary Springs, superintendent, and the school board left Hector out to dry. The Kingsville community is smarter than this. We know the caliber of our life long residents. Both Pinky and Hector have had agreements and disagreements but walk away holding respect for the betterment of the program, for the betterment of the district as a whole. As for Hector as an AD, I can't speak on that; but, I've seen him as a coach and he was a positive motivator. The school board and Mary Springs have lost the objects that was the foundation of Academy being started so many years ago. Shame on the SGISD Board of Directors and Mary Springs, the true source of this injustice.

If you want to see what happens when a school is run by selfishness from admin and the board just look at the shape KISD is in. The ranch needs to fix this problem quick.

KISD has gone down hill and SGISD is following its path. This is why so may students are now in Driscoll, Bishop, Ricardo & Riviera.
