This will be the eighth class inducted into the Boerne ISD Hall of Honor. This year’s ceremony took take place at The Dominion Country Club on Friday, Oct. 27.
A look at the class of 2017:
Dean Lammert graduated from Boerne High in the spring of 1979 and capped his senior season with an all-state performance. Lammert was named to the 1979 Texas Association of Basketball Coaches 2A All-State First Team and was named All-State by the Texas Sports Writer’s Association after averaging 24 points and grabbing 12 rebounds per game.
The 6-foot-9 Lammert led the Hounds to the regional tournament that season where they came up one victory shy of advancing to the state tourney. Boerne High defeated Medina Valley in OT at UTSA to advance to the regional tourney. In the regional semis, Lammert scored 27 points to help BHS defeat Taft, 63-51. In the Region IV-2A title game, Boling beat Boerne High by six points, 56-50. The Hounds finished the year at 25-8 overall and won the district title with a perfect record.
After high school, Lammert went on to play in college at Texas A&I, which is now Texas A&M-Kingsville. He was named to the conference’s All-Academic team for three seasons and met his future wife Christi - a volleyball player - there. They have three sons, Christopher, Clark and Connor, two of whom have or currently are playing with Big 12 schools..
2004 Boerne High Volleyball Team
Boerne High’s 2004 volleyball team capped its season at the 4A state tournament and is the only Boerne ISD volleyball squad in history to ever play at the state tourney. The Lady Greyhounds finished the year at 29-11 overall and went 10-0 in district to win their second district title in a row under coach Troy Errington with a perfect record.
BHS had a first-round bye and then opened the playoffs in the second round with a sweep over Elgin, 25-12, 25-18, 25-10. From there, BHS swept Lake Travis in a heated match at New Braunfels Canyon in the third round, 26-24, 25-18, 25-21. Boerne High moved on to face Calallen in the fourth round in Beeville and swept the Lady Wildcats, 25-21, 28-26, 25-21 for their third postseason sweep in a row. That put the Lady Hounds up against Dripping Springs at Buda Hays in the regional finals for the right to go to state. Boerne High didn’t come up with a sweep, but they did come up with a hard-earned victory in five sets, 25-20, 25-19, 18-25, 23-25, 15-7 to advance to the state tourney.
The 2004 4A state tournament was held in San Marcos that year on the campus of Texas State University and the Lady Hounds faced Dumas. Boerne High came up short, 25-19, 23-25, 25-21, 25-16, but will be remembered for having the deepest run by any volleyball team in Boerne ISD history. On that team for the entire season was Amy Hewitt, Jessica Rountree, Marilyn Greene, Lauren Weber, Brandi Reilly, Kaitlin Southerland, Robyn Artale, Heather Maddox, Brittni Butler, Shelbey Veselka, Danielle Bochat, Monica Deschaine and Jaime Quick.
Troy Errington was the head coach and his assistants were Stephanie Fincke and Jennifer Fox.
Brandi Reilly was one of the driving forces behind the 2004 Boerne High volleyball team that played at the state tournament. When the state tourney was over, Reilly was named to the 4A all-tournament team after she finished with 20 kills and 3 aces in Boerne High’s state semifinals match against Dumas. Reilly was also named all-state that year by the Texas Girls Coaches Association and the Texas Sports Writer’s Association.
Reilly had some opportunities to play college volleyball but turned down the offers so she could focus on academics at Texas A&M University. While in College Station, Reilly played for the Texas A&M University Club Volleyball team with other Division I athletes. During her junior year, the A&M Club team finished fifth at nationals and then they came in third at nationals her senior year.
Reilly recalls when BHS coach Troy Errington moved her from the middle to the outside. At the time, she wasn’t wild about the idea, but she was able to blossom as an outside hitter. “When he told me I thought he was crazy, but it turns out you should listen to your coach,” she said.
David Shivers was a two-time all-state selection for the Greyhound basketball team during his playing days at Boerne High. Shivers was named to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches 4A First Team in 1989 and was also a Texas Sports Writer’s Association and TABC 4A All-State First Team selection in 1990. Shivers, who scored 50 points in a game vs. Smithson Valley, averaged 30 points per game his senior year and his 1,116 points that season are listed as the 19th best all-time in Texas high school history for most points scored in a season.
Shivers helped the 1990 Boerne High team advance to the 4A state title game. The 89-90 Greyhounds pulled off a huge upset at the state tournament that year by defeating No. 1 state-ranked Port Arthur Lincoln in the state semifinals in overtime, 59-55, before the Hounds fell in the title game.
After high school, Shivers played at SMU for three seasons before finishing up his career at Concordia University. At Concordia, Shivers was All-Conference and named an NAIA Honorable Mention All-American after averaging close to 25 points per game.
After college, Shivers toured the world playing basketball. He suited up with Athletes in Action for two years and then joined the Harlem Globetrotters organization. He played against the Globetrotters just about every night as part of the Washington Generals for two years.
When his playing days were over, Shivers went back to school and is now involved in full-time ministry work at Prestonwood Baptist Church in the Dallas area. He has worked as a chaplain for the Dallas Cowboys and the Dallas Mavericks.
Rob Shivers was also part of Boerne High’s 1990 historic run to the state tournament. That squad is considered to be the best basketball team in Boerne ISD history. Only five basketball teams have made it to the state tourney in Boerne ISD history and the 1990 team is the only one to win a game at the state tourney after they upset Port Arthur Lincoln in the semis that year.
Shivers made the 4A all-tournament team at state as a sophomore. Shivers had quite a senior season in 1992 and was named to the Texas Sports Writer’s Association 4A All-State Third Team. Shivers helped the BHS boys team win the 1992 district title, their first since 1979. The Greyhounds capped the year with an impressive 29-4 record. Shivers, who once scored 40 points in a contest, finished his senior year averaging 23 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists per game and had at least five triple-doubles that season.
After high school, Shivers played at Stephen F. Austin before finishing up his career at Concordia University with his brother David. At Concordia, Shivers was an All-Conference First Team selection for two years and was an Honorable Mention All-American his senior year. Shivers was also named the Stephen F. Austin Student-Athlete of the Year for the 1993-1994 school year.
After college, Shivers served as one of Stan Leech’s assistants for four years at Boerne High before becoming a head coach at Utopia. From there he has served as the head coach at Brazoswood, San Marcos and Lampasas.
Shivers retired from coaching and left the sport with a record of 344-171. He is still a teacher and plans to move into administration.
