Lindale family shows strong support for LHS
One thing you can say about the Baldwin, Lindamood, Gerthe and Coomer families of Lindale: they prove their support for Lindale schools by being involved in virtually every extracurricular activity available.
Brother and sister Clayton and Kathryn Baldwin, along with their cousins Kassie and Luke Lindamood, Daniel Gerthe and Tate Coomer all got together recently at the conclusion of the Lindale Eagles’ victory over Jacksonville at Eagle Stadium to have their picture taken.
These cousins support the Eagle athletic teams by being members of the “Pride of Lindale’’ marching band, cheerleading squad, baseball and softball teams as well as the football team.
Tate Coomer is on the varsity football and baseball teams and as catcher was named to the Honorable Mention All District 16-4A team. He also played varsity soccer for two years.
Kathryn Baldwin is a softball standout and was named the first team All District designated hitter for 2013. She has been named to the Academic All-District team the past two years and is a member of the high school cheerleading squad.
This past summer, Kathryn was named an All American High School Cheerleader.
Daniel Gerthe is on the LHS Debate Team, in the Spanish Club, National Honor Society and is on the UIL Computer Programming Team.
Kassie Lindamood is also on the debate team and a member of the LHS Choir, and brother Luke is in the junior high band who plans on being in the high school band next year.
Daniel, Kassie, Tate and Clayton are squad leaders in the band.
The night after the Eagles’ win over Jacksonville – a game in which Tate scored a touchdown – the LHS marching band won first place in the Class 4A division at the National American Military Marching Band contest in Nacogdoches.
These young people are not only cousins, but have been best friends all their lives.
And Clayton has invited everyone to come by and see him at Brookshire’s where he works as a courtesy clerk.
