Tennis Team Finishes 2nd at Regionals

Regional Tennis Information
Wylie #1 Seed
Andrews # 2 Seed
Iowa Park # 3 Seed
Midlothian Heritage # 4 Seed
Wylie beat Pampa 10 – 0 and then beat Heritage 10 – 0
Andrews beat Godley 10 – 0 and then beat Iowa Park 10 – 0
Andrews played Wylie in finals.
These match scores are a little different than what you are used to. We usually play all 19 matches. We play all 3 boys doubles, 3 girls doubles, 1 mixed doubles, 6 boys singles, and 6 girls singles. Scores can be very close or obviously blow outs of 19-0 type scores. But with 19 matches being played, once you win 10 matches, the match is truly over. Once you win 10 matches, the most the opposing team could win is 9, so therefore at Region and most playoff matchups, once a team gets to 10, the match is done, and any matches still in progress stop play and shake hands.
Match versus Godley was a good performance. We were a better and more experienced team than them. It was one of their first times making it to Regionals which was good for their program. Our kids won quick and played with class.
Semi-Finals vs Iowa Park was a very good match. Vernon has been the team with Wylie since 1985 who have gone to Region. Iowa Park broke a 31 year streak and beat Vernon in Area to advance to Region. With that, we knew they would be tough. They were a good team. They had great depth. Strong players up top. A great coach. All the makings of a very good team. I’m proud to say we totally stepped up. Not just upperclassmen, but everyone. 1 and 2 girls doubles had to overcome split sets, but did so to make a 5-0 lead 7-0. Following the doubles, wins by Hesston Montague (8), Jaxon Jones (9), and Jacob Harper (10) made the match complete. It was 10-0, but it wasn’t a walloping. They are tough, we were tougher. Proud of how our kids played and handled themselves. A highlight as well would be when we were done, and we were circled up to complete the match, Iowa Park joined un in our circle in prayer. Two great teams grateful for God’s many blessings.
Finals vs Wylie. This was a great matchup. #1 in the state Wylie vs #5 in the State Andrews. It didn’t disappoint. Our Mustangs played very well, very competitive, and in the words of the opposing coach, better than any other team had played them in doubles. That was a big compliment since they have already also played # 2 in the State Boerne High.
We were down 1-6 after doubles, but this doesn’t show the matches true “closeness.”
Jaxon Jones and Luis Ramos dominated at # 3 boys doubles to get the team’s lone win.
The #2 boys doubles team of Jacob Harper and Hesston Montague split sets and lost a tough 3rd set super 8-10. Both # 1 doubles, girls and boys, each had set points in the first sets of their matches. The #3 girls doubles team of Rondan and Blackshear lost 4-6, 4-6.
The match was great to see. We lost 1-10 overall. Many teams usually just hit the road when they are out of Region, but I think teams knew this was going to be a great matchup and one they wanted to see. Pampa, Midlothian Heritage, Ft Stockton all stayed to see the fight. I’m proud of the team. They worked so hard. Wylie was the better team. We played great as well.
JV Football Shuts-Out Brownfield
9 months ago
The JV Football Mustangs travelled to Brownfield last night to take on the Cubs and won in a very decisive fashion 49-0.
The Cubs receive the opening kick off, but the Mustangs quickly forced a punt, drove the ball 53 yards, and scored on a 2 yd pass from Tyler Luna to Caesar Zapata, Jaden Brown Kick (7-0).
The teams traded possessions and the Mustangs forced a turnover on downs deep in the Brownfield territory and took over on the Cubs’ 19. One play was all it took to score. Tyler Luna threw a 19 yd pass to Caesar Zapata again and Brown added on the kick to go up 14-0.
Later in the 2nd quarter, the Mustangs took over after a punt on their own 39. Trayle Kelley caught a short screen pass from Luna and ran 61 yards for the TD. Brown again added the kick to go up 21-0 at the half.
Brownfield came out in the 2nd half and recovered their opening kickoff and drove down to the 1 yd line. They fumbled a snap that was recovered by Rogelio Maltos to end their best drive of the evening. The Mustangs quickly drove the field with a 61 yd reception by Nehemiah Flores from Luna and scored on a 26 yd pass from Luna to Marc Solarzano. Brown again on the kick brought the Mustangs up 28-0.
The Mustangs chose to onside the ensuing Kickoff and it was recovered by Caesar Zapata. We took possession on the 48 and drove and scored on a 21 yd run by Zapata. The kick failed and the Mustangs were up 34-0.
The ensuing kickoff pinned the Cubs deep in their own territory and a fumble caused by Julian Pando was recovered in the end zone by Jesus Macias adding on another Mustang TD. The 2 point score by Mateo De La Cruz took the score to 42-0.
The Cubs decided to run the clock in the 4th quarter and our only offensive play came after a bad punt snap by the Cubs giving us the ball on their 1 yd line. Alan Rodriguez took the handoff from Hunter Kimball and score the game’s final TD. Brown added on the final kick taking the score to 49-0.
Our defense really played well and did a lot of things right. We had some great tackles for loss by Ethan Morgan, Brandon Contrerras, Colten Butler, and Dylan Nino. Our offense was really clicking and it just made for a great night for the Mustangs.
We will host Denver City again next week for our final game of the season. The JV Mustangs are now 7-1-1 on the season.
JV Football Gets the W Against DC
9 months ago
The JV Football Mustangs travelled to Denver City to take on the other Mustangs last Thursday. The Andrews Mustangs came home victorious with a 22-4 win. The unusual score was due to the Andrews Mustangs taking 2 safeties in order to prevent the other team from possibly getting a touchdown.
The game started off well in favor of Andrews. We received the opening kickoff, drove 59 yards and scored on a 2 yd Trayle Kelly TD Run. Jesus Macias caught a pass from Tyler Luna to tack on the 2 point play (8-0). The ensuing DC drive ended with a punt, which Caesar Zapata returned 69 yds. for a TD. The 2 point play failed (14-0).
Each team then exchanged possessions. Mid-way through the 2nd quarter, Marc Solarzano caught a 51 yd TD pass from Luna to give the good Mustangs 6 more. Colton Butler added on the 2 point play to go up 22-0.
Denver City was able to drive the ball on the next possession to the Andrews 5 yd line, but a fumble recovered by Joseph Acker gave us the ball back deep in our own territory. We were unable to make any headway, so instead of giving the ball back to DC, we decided to take a safety on a punt (22-2).
DC received the ball in the 2nd half, and drove down to the Andrews 3. A 4th down stop by Alan Rodriguez and Isaiah Moran gave Andrews the ball back. The teams again traded possessions throughout the 3rd and 4th quarters. Caesar Zapata and Abel Lujan caused a fumble late in the 4th that was recovered by Justin “PeeWee” Villafranco on our own 1 yd line. We were unable to move the ball out of our own territory, so we again took a safety (22-4).
Denver City had a good running game, but keeping them out of the end zone was a great positive for us this week. We got our QB back from injury, which helped our offense out tremendously.
The JV Mustangs are now 6-1-1 on the season.

AHS Tennis Team Wins AREA CHAMPIONSHIP
9 months ago
After the tennis team won district outright on Tuesday versus Monahans, the team competed in a quick turnaround in the Area Tournament Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14,15.
We played in Midland at Bush Tennis Center and at Midland College. District 3's competing teams in order 1-4 were Clint, San Elizario, Clint Mountainview, and Fabens who later withdrew for team reasons. District 4's teams in order 1-4 were Andrews, Ft Stockton, Greenwood, Monahans. The results are below.
Our Mustangs played very well in both matches. Against San Elizario, we took a big/dominant lead 7 - 0 in just a short time period. In these matches, we play to 10 wins. Some teams like to continue to play for experience all 19 matches, but San Eli wanted to stop at 10. Quick wins by Hesston Montague for win # 8 and Tatum Rondan win # 9, led to a 10th win by Bry Alvidrez. It's always fun for kids to be win # 10. In the finals, we had a familiar foe in Ft Stockton. We beat them 14 - 5 in district, but that was our closest match against 4A teams. We lost several split sets that match, played a few close matches. Last time we were up 5-2 after doubles, this time a dominant 7-0. Last time we lost 3 singles matches, this time only 1.
The team showed up to play in a mighty way. They were patient, aggressive, confident, and determined. This definitely led to our AREA CHAMPIONSHIP. Super proud of the team.
Mustang JV Football Falls to Levelland
9 months ago
The JV Football Mustangs hosted the Levelland Lobos facing them for the 2nd time this year. The last meeting ended with the Mustangs winning in Levelland 14-12. This game was a low scoring affair as well, but the Lobos got the best of the JV 3-8.
The only scoring play for the Mustangs came in the 2nd quarter with a 26yd field goal by Jaden Brown.
There were a few great defensive stands and tackles for loss by JD Bejarano and Rogelio Maltos. Caesar Zapata had an interception and Adrian Saenz came up with a fumble recovery. The Mustangs had multiple chances, but couldn’t get the ball to the end zone that night. Trayle Kelly contributed to the offensive attack with 72 total yards including one for 33. Marc Solarzano hauled a reception in for 20 yards and Nehemiah Flores had one for 19 from the hands of Hunter Kimball.
Our defense really stepped up, but we just haven’t been able to put a complete game together the last few weeks. We should be getting some personnel back that should help us out on both sides of the ball.
The Mustangs travel to Denver City for their next match-up. The JV is currently 4-2-1.
JV Football Ties Lubbock Coronado
9 months ago
The JV Football Mustangs hosted the Lubbock Coronado Mustangs last night at the Mustang Bowl. The Andrews Mustangs tied 8-8 in a hard-fought defensive battle. Our pieced together offense struggled to get going for the first part of the game. Some error cost us a critical times, but we were able to come away from the game with some positives.
The first Coronado drive was cut short by a great interception by Mateo De La Cruz. After that, Andrews did not have any huge highlights. Both teams traded punts and the first score came late in the 2nd quarter with Andrews backed up on its own 5 yd line. Andrews fumbled in the end zone and Coronado fell on the ball scoring the game’s first TD. Coronado added on the 2 points to make the score 0-8.
The 2nd half began much as the first half. Both teams traded punts a few times. Late in the third, Coronado drove the field and the Andrews Mustangs cut their drive short of a TD with another interception. This time, Jeremiah Lopez intercepted the ball in our own end zone and returned it out to our 9 yard line. Andrews then drove the field with a big run by Mateo De La Cruz and a 19 yd pass from De La Cruz to Marc Solarzano, but our drive, too, was cut short by an interception on Lubbock’s 1 yd line. The Andrews Mustangs, however, rose to the occasion and Rogelio Maltos tackled their runner in their own end zone for a safety. Andrews on the board 2-8.
The ensuing Andrews drive was highlighted by a 23 yd run by Trayle Kelly and capped of by a 7 yd TD pass from De La Cruz to Solarzano. Kick failed 8-8. Great pass defense kept Lubbock from scoring on the next drive, but when Andrews got the ball back, there just wasn’t enough time on the clock to mount a game winning drive.
Our kids fought hard. We’ve lost a couple of key player to injury and being moved up the varsity. We had many positive defensively, and we have to work on a few thinks on the offensive side, but our kids played well tonight.
We will host Levelland next week. The JV Football Mustangs are currently 4-1-1 for the year.

9 months ago
The JV Football Mustangs hosted the Big Spring JV Steers last night. We had to make some modifications to our game plan due to an injury to our QB this week in practice. However, the Mustangs came to play and shut out the Steers 54-0 in a great show of determination in all aspects of the game.

Kimball connected again with Justin “PeeWee” Villafranco for the 2 point play. 14-0.
