Bowyer out at Taylor
Cory Bowyer is out as Katy Taylor’s baseball coach. The veteran coach, who finished his sixth season at Taylor a few months ago, abruptly resigned his post. Katy ISD athletic director Debbie Decker wouldn’t elaborate on the reason for Bowyer’s resignation, but she said his replacement, former Bowyer assistant Matt Glover, already is on the job.
“I’m very excited for Coach Glover,” Decker said. “He’s been with the district for a while and he’s a great coach. He’s very well-respected by the kids and the coaches, so we’re looking for continued success in the Taylor baseball program with him.”
Taylor went 27-12, finished second in District 19-6A and won a bi-district playoff last season.
