She brought about tremendous success both in New Mexico as well as at Robinson ISD. Her multiple state championships are a credit to her ability to build successful basketball programs."
Overall, Gomez has 21 district championships and 10 state tournament appearances, with six state titles. She was named the district 17-3A coach of the year in 2008 and the district 19-3A coach of the year in 2009.
"This is a great boost for our program and a great opportunity for our kids," said Southern.
