Former baseball player for The University of Texas, Beau O'Hara, will formally take the reins of Houston Christian High School's baseball team this fall after serving as assistant coach for four years and interim head coach during the 2020-21 season, as well as a football assistant coach. O'Hara led the Mustangs to a record 15 - 11 wins this last season. The program had a team pitching ERA of 2.89 and went 8-1 in the final month of the season.
"Houston Christian is excited to advance its athletics programming through this tremendous hire. O'Hara is a stellar athlete and coach, and our players and department will benefit from his character, culture, and desire to create leaders, while developing a winning program," said Director of Athletics Dave Kinard.

Coach O'Hara was recognized as the 2019 South Texas Sliders Scott Mayer Coach of The Year, with numerous state and national finalist teams.
"I'm incredibly thankful, excited, and honored for this opportunity at Houston Christian High School, and appreciate the support from players, parents, and school administration." O'Hara said.
