Cy-Fair Girls’ Basketball Coach is Honored for 600th Career Victory

Cypress, TX (January 30, 2016) Cy-Fair High School head girls’ basketball coach Ann Roubique was honored for achieving the 600-career-win milestone prior to the Lady Bobcat’s District 17-6A matchup against Langham Creek High School on Jan. 29 at Cy-Fair High School.

Roubique earned career victory No. 600 on Jan. 8 as the Lady Bobcats defeated Cypress Lakes High School, 64-44. She was recognized on Jan. 29 as CFISD director of athletics Ed Warken and associate athletic director Sharon Farrah presented Roubique with a commemorative 600-win plaque.

“I’ve been around many young ladies who have put their uniform on every single day and dedicated themselves to me, the school, and the Bobcat program. It’s meant everything to me,” Roubique said after her team completed a 69-56 win over Langham Creek. “The coaching staff I’ve been surrounded by all these years has everything to do with it. This is one of those ‘we’ awards, those ‘us’ awards.”

Roubique has clinched two state championships, made four state tournament appearances and 10 regional tournament appearances. She has led the Lady Bobcats to nine district championships and has been named Coach of the Year by both the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches and Texas Girls Coaches Association.

Roubique has coached 15 NCAA Division I players and three future WNBA No. 1 draft picks. She was a two-sport standout in basketball and softball at McNeese State University, where she was inducted into the McNeese Athletics Hall of Fame in 2001.

“She’s a legend,” said Cypress Woods High School girls’ basketball coach Virginia Flores, who served as Roubique’s assistant from 1999-2002. “She would never say that because she’s a humble person. The 600 wins are a testament to her tenacity and her spirit. She’s put Cy-Fair ISD on the map for girls’ basketball.”

Roubique is also an effective leader off the court. She was named the Spotlight Teacher for Cy-Fair High School in 2012.

“Out of 240 staff members we put her up on the pedestal and said this is how we want all our teachers to act and treat kids and honor the profession,” said Michael Smith, Cy-Fair principal. “She works in our adaptive PE program with LIFE Skills students and is very positive. She has high expectations but a kind heart that helps people reach those expectations. Her athletes work hard to please her. We’ve had great athletes but they come and go. Programs maintain consistency, and she’s been that consistent factor.”

Several of Roubique’s former players came to the Jan. 29 celebration to support their coach as she builds on 600 victories. Roubique said that keeping in touch with ex-athletes has been one of the most rewarding parts of her career.

“They get here as kids and they don’t know they’re kids,” she said. “Then they come back later in life and tell me where they are and what they’re doing. They come back and say ‘thank you’ and share what the girls’ basketball program at Cy-Fair meant to them and how it made them tougher down the line.

“It’s been a fun ride,” added Roubique. “I’ve been very lucky and fortunate. Bobcat Fight Never Dies.”
