AHS coach creates the ‘Hornet Cup’

Azle High girls soccer coach Trent Davis wants his Lady Hornets always improving.

So he created the Hornet Cup, to be awarded at the end of four weeks of off-season workouts.

Points are gained or lost daily, depending on everything from contests to attendance.

Some tougher contests will be worth more points.

Points will be deducted for absenteeism while bonus points will be awarded by being prompt for the first period workout.

At the end of the month, “the team that pulls together, works the hardest, and collects the most points will win the Hornet Cup,” Davis said.

With district tournaments over, so are the seasons for Azle High golf and tennis.

The boys golf team competed at the district event at Weatherford’s Canyon West Golf Course April 8-9.

A poor opening day hurt Azle, coach Bob Gilbreath said.

He added that the Hornets improved “significantly” on day two.

The Azle ‘A’ squad was led by Brad Hart who fired rounds of 92 and 86 for a 178 total.

Carson Anderson was next (90-91, 181) with Carson Alexander following (103-87, 190).

Rounding out Azle’s top team with a total score of 748 were Bryce Arstingstall (108-91, 199) and Mitchell Flores (115-92, 207).

Azle made a 38-stroke improvement on day two.

The Azle ‘B’ squad was led by Jonathan Powell’s 210 (99-111).

The rest of the team: Logan Hall, Cole Cherry, Dylan Yeats, and Ian Hopkins.

Byron Nelson won the district with Denton Guyer second and Nelson’s B team third.

Tennis coach John Ward, in his final days before retirement, led AHS to the district tourney at Texas Christian University courts.

No Azle players advanced, Ward said.

He noted that four AHS athletes reached quarterfinal rounds: Amber Bader, Henrik Osten, Desiree Dority, and Mackenzie Morelock.
