Soccer coach Audrey Ambrose was inducted into The Texas Association of Soccer Coaches Hall of Fame Nov 19. After 27 years of being involved in high school soccer, she took her team into winning regionals six times and two state championships at Madison. She received The San Antonio Express News Coach of the Year eight times and NSCAA Regional Coach of the Year in 1991. Those are only a few of her many stepping stones that have led her into the hall of fame.
“With the sucessess of Madison soccer, winning regionals six times, being a regions director and president of the organization they [other athletics coaches] nominated me,” Ambrose said.
Ambrose’s success started in the early 1980s at Jefferson High School in the San Antonio Independent School District. She spent three years there and in that time accomplished two district championships along with a regional championship. Ambrose is one of the few coaches in Madison history to find themselves in the hall of fame. Her induction took place in downtown San Antonio on Nov. 19, along with five other coaches and an athletic director from local schools.
“Its a big honor and a privilege to be nominated by your coatching peers in Texas,” Ambrose said.
