AMS Girls' Track Meet ResultsOn March 5th, the AMS young Lady Panthers had their first track meet of the season at the Gid Campbell Track Complex in Anahuac. Both the 7th grade and 8th grade ladies dominated the night. The coaching staff is immensely proud of the young athletes for giving their best at such a cold meet. There were many blue ribbons in Anahuac possession by the end of the night, and quite a few personal bests set by both teams. Coach Sherman was impressed with the drive and skills that her athletes learned in such a short time. The weather for February was not always agreeable for our athletes to practice, but once again, 7th grade Lady Panthers proved that they can bring home the victory when the pressure is on! 7th grade relays placed first in the 4x1, 4x2, and a close second in the 4x4. 8th grade relays won first in all three relays, with an intense 4x4 ending the night. East Chambers was in the lead, with Anahuac Kylie Fugere closing the gap to get Becca DeHoyos set to surpass the Buccaneers. DeHoyos pushed herself through the entire leg and the last 100 she pushed into overdrive and pulled in front for a stunning finish. Coach Brandon was excited and proud of these young ladies in their first meet under her supervision. The hardwork and great teamwork and care, they have for one another is exciting. Coach Brandon is looking forward to having these lady athletes, with their Panther Pride, in the high school program. Coach Brandon, Coach Sherman, and Coach Russell, are excited about working with these athletes this track season, and appreciate all the support that the parents and community have extended to this wonderful group of athletes. Their next track meet will be at the home of the Buccaneers, March 16th.

AHS ChoppedOn February 26th, AHS advanced culinary students participated in a Culinary competition held at East Chambers High school. This an annual competition that the students enjoy every year. This year we competed in a “Flip this Dish” competition as seen on the Food Network’s show “Guy’s Grocery Games”. Competitors were given the ingredients list to apple pie then added a pork loin chop where they must come up with a dish using all ingredients, but not apple Pie. We had 3 teams compete. Pictured are Team “the chefs” Josh Hoskins, Jose Sanchez and Cameron Mayes, team “culinary crew” Kodi Abshier, Sydney Bertrand, Ashley Bennett and Sierra Rainey and Team “MCM” Mailey Sherman, Cynthia Payne and Mylik Oppenheimer pictured with Culinary teacher Mrs. Copeland. These kids did an outstanding job and represented AHS well! Team Culinary crew tied for 1st place with their pork and apple empanada with jalapeno caramel and team “the chefs” placed 5th with their apple pocket and pork rajas mix dish. The competition is judged on creativity, presentation, taste, safety and sanitation. We were lucky enough to have Coach Chase Copeland be one of the judges for the competition. Coach Copeland is a tough judge to say the least. Contestants Jose Sanchez, Cameron Mayes, Sydney Bertrand and Ashley Bennett are no strangers to the competition as this is their 2nd year to compete. It was a great day filled with food and fun, these kids love to compete with food! Be on the lookout for our upcoming competition to be held here at AHS in April!
