AHS wastes strong outings

 

Silent bats quell great pitching

The Hornet baseball team got exceptional outings from two top notch starters.
But Azle (7-10, 3-7) lost a pair of close games to district rivals.
Tommy Kay threw a fine game against Chisholm Trail; after some defensive lapses put AHS behind 3-0 in the top of the first, Kay shut the door.

AHS Winterguard

The Azle High School Winterguard, competing against 121 groups in its class, placed 38th at World Championships in Dayton, Ohio April 16. The Guard’s preliminary score of 77.030 didn’t boost them into semi-final competition, but Director Debra Oldroyd said the team had its best performance of the season. While in Dayton, the AHS Winterguard watched other events with a keen eye toward their next season. They also took in some of the sights around Dayton, including the National Air Force Museum. Above, the Guard is pictured at NTCA Grand National Championships at Thomas Coliseum April 11. Photo courtesy Mark Jacobs
