ATHENS -- The Athens Hornets began the soccer season with a 3-1 win over Whitehouse on Tuesday night.
TYLER -- Greg Priest will be recommended as the next athletic director of Tyler ISD during the next Board of Trustees meeting on June 23.
District 32-4A did some damage in the playoffs this season, highlighted by Pine Tree's run to the sectional round of the 4A girls soccer playoffs.
With the season over, the coaches from across the district sat down to name their all-district teams and league MVPs.
CARROLLTON -- Many of Hallsville's faithful blew off Friday for a trip to the Metroplex and the Bobcats' meeting with The Dallas Morning News' No. 1 area soccer team.
It wasn't the game Hallsville wanted to see, a 7-2 loss to Frisco Liberty in the 4A Region II semifinals, but watching the hometown boys play at Standridge Stadium was just an extra treat upon a very impressive season
CARROLLTON -- Pine Tree head coach André Lo stared out to the field that had undoubtedly hosted Friday's most exciting soccer game in the state.
The Pirates lost their 4A Region II semifinal game to Frisco Wakleland, 3-2, with the game's final four goals coming in the game's final nine minutes
Below is a list of boys regional tournament soccer playoff pairings involving East Texas teams.
FORNEY -- Through the first 12 minutes, it seemed as if it would be a long night for the Pine Tree Pirates. But as coach Andre' Lo often says, "the 'O' in 'champion' stands for 'overcome.'"
FORNEY -- Mother Nature didn't do the Whitehouse LadyCats any favors as a blustery, steady wind of more than 20 mph throughout prevented them from finding any continuity.
LINDALE -- The Bobcats have done some impressive things through four rounds of the Class 4A soccer playoffs.
Add representing East Texas to the list. Hallsville defeated Red Oak, 4-1, Monday evening in the Region II Quarterfinals at Lindale's Eagle Stadium for a trip to the regional tournament.
