Goodloe out, Pryor in at Plano
For the second straight year, Plano Senior is getting a new wrestling head coach.
Clay Goodloe was at the helm for one season, but is departing for the same position at Carrolton Creekview. Ironically enough, Creekview is involved with the Wildcats' new head coach as well as Jay Pryor, who started the Mustangs' program when the school opened, is taking over at Plano.
Pryor was previously the wrestling coach at Sand Springs Public Schools in Sand Springs, Okla.
UIL steroid testing results

During that span, 3,311 tests were conducted and confirmed nine positive results and two protocol positives, which stem from a student-athlete violating the UIL steroid-testing protocol. One resulted from a student not reporting for testing and one was the result of a substituted specimen.
In addition, 217 schools were tested which included 3,087 boys across 11 sports and 224 girls over 10 sports. The sports with the most tests conducted were football (1,366) and volleyball (30) for boys and girls, respectively.
The testing spanned grade levels 9-12, with 1,045 senior student-athletes topping the scale.
