Staff Writer

LOS FRESNOS-The Lady Falcons have found their replacement for long time coach Becky Woods. On Monday, The Lady Falcons named Anissa Lucio their new head volleyball coach.
Lucio spent the last four seasons at Harlignen South directing their volleyball program.
Making the decision was tough for Lucio but there are some family ties to the Falcons program. Lucio’s husband, Alex Lucio is currently on the basketball coaching staff and her kids will be attending school in Los Fresnos.
“At first it was a personal deal, it was something I looked at with my family and felt it was a good fit with my husband there coaching and my kids will go to school there in Los Fresnos and being able to take over a program like Los Fresnos was the cherry on top.” Lucio said.
This will be Lucio’s third stop as a head coach. Lucio spent three seasons at Weslaco High and the last four at South. In her four years, South did not qualify for the playoffs her first season but made the playoffs the last three seasons along with a bi-district title each of the three seasons.
“Sky’s the limit with this program,” Lucio said. “It is an honor and a blessing to have the chance to take over this program. Coach Woods did a phenomenal job with this program and I want to be able to keep that going here in Los Fresnos.” Said Lucio.
