Basketball Coach - Thomas Tipton

This is Coach Tiptons 4th year to coach the boys’ basketball team here in Richland Springs.  Last year we made the playoffs for the first time in around 6 years I believe.  We have a young team again this year and are looking forward to having a very successful season this year.


Track Coach - Thomas Tipton

This is Coach Tipton's fifth year to coach the boys track team, and his second year to coach the girls track team.  Richland Springs has  been blessed to have such hard working kids.  His first year, Richland Spring had the boys 4x100 Relay, 100 m dash runner and a pole vaulter to qualify for the State Track Meet in Austin.  Both the 4x100 relay and the pole vaulter finished 6th place.  The 100m dash runner who qualified finished in 9th place.  During his second year, Richland Springs had a relay and an individual runner qualify for the State meet.  This time it was the 4x200 relay team.  The 4x200 relay finished 7th place at the state meet. Our 100m dash runner finished 1st and set the 1A-Division 2 state record with a time of 10.87.  During his third year, Richland Springs had numerous runners qualify for the area meet.  Last year we had the majority of the boys and girls track team make it to the regional track meet in San Angelo and performed very well.  Hopefully this will be another great year of track for both the boys and the girls.  Let’s earn another trip to Austin! 


U.I.L. Academics Coordinator - Nelson Smith

This will be Coach Smith's eighth year as coordinator for U.I.L. Academics. Each year our children work hard to prepare for the district meets.
