Tyler High Head Girls Track Coach Angela Moon:

“Ahnesty has had a big impact on the track team these last two years. She is hardworking, competitive, motivated, and a coachable young lady. Her leadership on and off the field showed just how much she cared for her teammates and the sport itself. She would/could motivate those around her to be the best they could be. Ahnesty, I am super proud of you and wish you nothing but the best at Missouri Valley. You will be a great asset to that track team. When that last stretch of your run gets hard, remember to always go to your arms! The more you pump your arms, the faster your legs will go!”
