The Hornets sent eight players to be the faces of their program for their work ethic on and off the field. The representatives were Victor Dawson, Xavius Fulton, Rowdy Godwin, Garrett Hayes, Andrew McBride, Alfredo Miranda, Antonio Miranda, and Kamion Tanner

GEORGETOWN — The Athens Lady Hornets dropped five of their first six matches of the year. It’s safe to say that back in January, a trip to the UIL state soccer tournament was not on the minds of many
TYLER -- Athens completed a year-long dream Saturday in the girls' Class 4A Region II championship game. That does not mean the story is over though.
The Lady Hornets advanced to the state tournament in Georgetown with a 6-2 win against Terrell. A win nearly as lopsided as last season's loss in the same game at the same CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium venue.
LINDALE -- Pittsburg scored two goals in less than a minute and hung on late to defeat Athens in the Class 4A area round Friday at Lindale's Eagle Stadium.
Senior captain Cristian Martinez notched an assist at the 33:55 mark of the second half and then scored from more than 20 yards out at the 33:10 mark en route to a 2-1 victory.
TYLER -- Athens' first trip back to CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium was a success.
The Lady Hornets crushed Waskom, 10-0, in the bi-district round of the Class 4A state playoffs at the same site they dropped the 2016 Region II championship game. They're three wins away from returning to the regional title game thanks to a second-round bye and four wins from reaching Georgetown for the final four.
