• Baylor alum named TAPPS 5A Female Coach of the Year


    In seven seasons as head volleyball coach at Bishop Lynch High School, head coach Tricia Roos, BBA ’04, has led the Lady Friars to three state titles. With that sort of resume, it’s no surprise that Roos was named this year’s TAPPS 5A Female Coach of the Year.

    The 5A level of TAPPS (the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools) represents the highest level of private school athletic competition in Texas. But it didn’t take long for Roos to take her team to the top; Bishop Lynch won the state title in 2008, her second season, and have followed that up with two more state championships in the last two years. In between? The Lady Friars were “only” state finalists in 2009 and 2010, and state semifinalists in 2011.

    Roos (pictured top left above) began her volleyball career at Baylor as a founding member of the university’s club volleyball team. After graduation, she spent three years coaching the Reicher Catholic High School team here in Waco before moving to Dallas.

    Roos is also the director of admissions for Bishop Lynch, a Catholic high school of more than 1,000 students that dates back to 1963. She and her husband, Jonas (BBA ’05), have a son, Cameron.

    Sic ’em, Tricia!
