WHAT A YEAR our AHS Baseball program had. The Varsity team worked to the FOURTH highest all-time wining percentage for AHS baseball teams, had a 19-9 record, and is the only AHS “senior class” to make playoffs….ALL FOUR YEARS! Our Bulldogs were the only AHS team to win the Katy ISD Tournament for the Bulldogs FIRST TOURNEY WIN during Coach Ursery’s “era.” While we are bragging, the Bulldogs also beat Clements (first time with Coach Ursery at the helm) and beat Dulles twice! We are super proud of our Bulldogs and wish all the luck in the world to our graduation seniors: Brinkman, Johnson, Lepore, Little, Morvant, Murany, Osemwota and Soliz. We expect BIG things from these guys, and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you.
The coaches, families and players would like to give a HUGE shoutout to Marty Brinkman, Sam’s mom. Marty organized and produced AMAZING videos for this years Seniors (including individual family videos), all 3 team highlight videos and a KickOff and Community Involvement video! THANK YOU MARTY! And thank you to your family for giving you “space” during production.
Also, a huge thank you to Rob Johnson – Baseball “Sport” Coordinator and Liaison to the Booster Club. Thanks for your organization, the music, the scorekeeping and time in general, that you’ve given to our Bulldog baseball program.

As Austin High School’s fall sports get started, there’s a buzz around the parking lots, locker-rooms, fields and the gyms and it has an electric-feel to it. With practices underway for cross-country, football, and volleyball, it’s great to see the kids back at school and working hard.
Volleyball has kicked the 2014-15 season off with all three teams being undefeated. Nice work Ladies! Football is currently in it’s second week of practice and preparing for scrimmages against GC Memorial on August 22. We sure would like to see you there!
Looking forward to seeing all our awesome Austin Bulldog Fans back in the stands supporting all sports here soon!

AHS Baseball’s fundraiser COED SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT has been postponed b/c of inclement weather. It has been rescheduled to: JANUARY 4th….what does that mean?
1. MORE TEAMS CAN PLAY
2. YOU HAVE TIME “STACK” YOUR TEAM
3. Teams will be added to to the already posted schedule.
The USA Team is taking on an entire roster of European swimmers in a meet named “Duel in the Pool” in Scotland. This meet occurs every year and is sponsored by Mutual of Omaha. Our very our AHS Senior, Simone Manuel, is competing in the 50 & 100 meter freestyles. Below is a description I read this morning as quoted from SwimSwam.com on Simone :
The name on the U.S. roster with a lot of intrigue is Simone Manuel. Only 17 years old and still a high school senior, Manuel is a fresh face on the international scene and a rising swimmer with tremendous and visible talent. Her 50 free from Worlds (where she took 7th) this past summer sits 12th in the world for 2013, and though the top 3 European threats still outrank her, if you’re guessing which swimmer is most likely to pop of a huge time drop, you could do a lot worse than to bet on the 17-year-old who’s still adjusting to international competition and meters swimming.
