Alamo Heights Mules Cycling Sarah Poarch, Matthew Poarch The Alamo Heights Mules Cycling Team is open to all students in grades 6 - 12 who want to be part of an inclusive group interested in learning about and competing in the sport of mountain biking. Cycling encompasses many developmental attributes including improving self-confidence, learning and maintaining
physical activity for a healthy lifestyle, developing friendships, and providing positive role models in the lives of student-athletes. Founded in December 2018, the team had a stellar first season with 12 trailblazing
student-athletes, and in the second season, we doubled the size of the team. The third season brought a triple-sized team, and we are expecting even more growth this coming season. Student-athletes compete
against teams from across Texas as part of the Texas Interscholastic Mountain Bike Team, organized by the
National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA).

For the past 2021 season, the Mules Cycling team finished in 3rd place out of 25 teams—incredible
success—lifted by high school podium finishers Aidan Kane, Cohen Kinsey, Joshua Murguia and Caroline
The team is open for females and males at AHJS and AHHS this Fall 2021/Spring 2022. Watch for the announcement of the parent/student info meeting this fall and follow Mules Cycling here:
