   Rickaway once was among the Bucket Calf participants in an event that guides kids through their first glimpse of showing cattle – in their case calves. 
   “I grew up showing steers here at MCFLA with a bucket calf just as many of these young people have,” Rickaway said in her speech to those attending the event. 
   Tidehaven’s valedictorian, student council president, Tidehaven FFA president and the 2016 Fair Queen, Rickaway is a senior Public Health major at the University of Texas in Austin and will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in May.

"Matthews, BCISD part ways by mutual agreement" by: Mike Reddell & Jessica Shepard

Patrick Matthews said his final good-byes to Bay City Blackcat coaches and players Thursday, Feb. 27.

“Today is my last day that’s what’s happening,” Matthews said Thursday afternoon – after talking to coaches and before he addressed his former players.

Matthews said by mutual agreement with the district, he’s leaving his position as Blackcat Head Football Coach and Athletic Director – and the school board will begin looking for his successor.

“I decided to part ways and look to get back to Houston and they will begin looking for someone else,” Matthews said.

“This benefits everyone,” he added.

Matthews was hired by BCISD in April 2018 and posted a 4-7 record in 2018 - defeating El Campo and taking the Blackcats into the first-round playoffs that year - followed by last year’s 0-9 record.

Matthews came to BCISD after serving as offensive coordinator for 6A Seven Lakes High School in Katy.
