Last month, 4ATX Foundation and Austin FC partner Managed Facility Solutions (MFS) teamed up to support Austin Soccer Foundation’s scholarship program by awarding $5,000 in college scholarship money to two standout Austin-area high school soccer players, in memory of Austin soccer legend Wolfgang Suhnholz. 

MFS and 4ATX Foundation presented the Wolfgang Suhnholz Memorial Scholarship funds at the 2022 Austin Soccer Foundation Awards Ceremony to Alex Bethke and Alexa Huerta.

“4ATX Foundation is proud to partner with Austin Soccer Foundation in supporting their scholarship program,” said 4ATX Foundation Executive Director Kaitlin Mauro. “We’re delighted to align with them in many ways to grow healthier communities in Central Texas through soccer.”

“Our organization takes great pride in being able to make such a positive impact with this well-deserved scholarship for both Alexa and Alex," said Haynes Dallas, CEO of Managed Facility Solutions. "The time commitment each have made to perform at such a high level both in the classroom and on the soccer field, while also being great leaders in our community, is truly remarkable. We are excited to see both recipients continue to excel as leaders in college and all future endeavors.”

Bethke is a graduate of Lake Travis High School. When he wasn’t scoring goals for FC Westlake and Capital City SC, Bethke was breaking his own records at Lake Travis High School where he was selected as All-Centex player of the year for a second season and captained his team to a state championship. A National Honor Society member with a 99 weighted grade average, Bethke plans to attend the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor where he will study Business.

Huerta is a graduate of the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders. In addition to training with Forza Sports Academy and Capital City SC, Alexa was a four-time 1st-Team All-District selection and was selected to play on the U-17 and U-20 Mexican National Teams. An AP Scholar and National Honor Society Member with a 4.5 GPA, Alexa plans to attend Houston Baptist University where she will major in Sport Management.
