One of the greatest athletes to ever come out of Garrison died suddenly in Houston on Dec. 30. Eric Thomas was a 1992 graduate of Garrison High School and a track star. He competed in the 2000 Summer Olympics finishing in the top 15, competing in the 400-meter hurdles. The cause of death has yet to be determined. Friends and family believe it was complications from a recent hip replacement surgery that Thomas underwent.


The University fired suspended Texas basketball coach Chris Beard on Thursday, charging that he is “unfit” to lead the Longhorns. However, assistant coach Rodney Terry will continue to work as Longhorn’s head coach for the rest of the 2022-23 season.

A 12-2 run to end Thursday night’s game by the Nicholls Colonels stunned the Texas A&M University-Commerce men’s basketball team, who fell 66-63 in the Field House. The Lions look to bounce back on Saturday at McNeese, this year’s Southland Conference Tournament site. Tip-off is 3:30 pm in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

DesiRay Kernal scored her 1,000th career point Thursday evening in the Field House as the Texas A&M University-Commerce women’s basketball team cruised to an 81-48 win over the Nicholls Colonels, remaining undefeated in Southland Conference play. The Lions are at McNeese on Saturday at 1:00 pm.
