Harborth exits Temple after four years in charge

After serving as Temple’s head coach for four seasons, Jessica Harborth is moving on.

Harborth — whose Tem-Cats went 20-15, qualified for the playoffs for the first time since 2014 and advanced to the Class 6A Region II area round this season — has stepped down, taking the same job at Lampasas.

Harborth, a Belton and Mary Hardin-Baylor alum who was promoted to Temple’s head coach in 2015 after two years as the JV skipper and varsity assistant, confirmed the move Thursday.

A job listing for the vacancy is posted on the Temple ISD website.

Temple surged this season to a third-place finish in District 12-6A and carried that momentum into the postseason, during which it defeated Longview in the bi-district round before falling to Wylie.

Wylie is playing in the 6A-II final this week.

Mihok tabbed as new UMHB coach

BELTON — Mary Hardin-Baylor named Adam Mihok as the next men’s and women’s head tennis coach Wednesday following the retirement of James Cohagan.

Mihok spent the previous two years as head coach at Brock High School, after one year at Fort Worth Brewer and 10 years at North Crowley.

Cohagan will retire at the end of May following a 38-year stint at the helm for UMHB tennis. He guided the Crusaders to 19 national tournament appearances.
