The Torns family loves Sweetwater’s trails
Anthony Torns and his family have only lived in Sweetwater for a short time, but he’s already very impressed with the trails. He should know: he recently became the head track coach for Austin’s G10 Academy, which provides elite athletic training for students and adults.
“I love to walk the trails with the kids,” says Anthony.
Extending for about 5 miles, Sweetwater’s trail system is part of more than 700 acres the community devotes to parks, trails, natural open spaces, and amenities including the Sweetwater Club.
The Torns family relocated to Sweetwater from Marble Falls, where Anthony was a high school track and field coach. Wanting to be closer to his new job at G10 Academy, they chose a new Chesmar home in Sweetwater, which they had driven past many times.
“We had always admired the way Sweetwater looks from Highway 71, so we decided to drive in and see what it had to offer,” said mom Anitra, a sales director for Mary Kay, Inc.
The Torns feel like their move to Sweetwater was meant to be, because they got the very last homesite that was available for Chesmar’s popular two-story Warner plan.
The family moved to Central Texas more than 10 years ago, after their home in New Orleans was flooded during Hurricane Katrina. They moved to the Austin area to stay connected to their church family.
Anthony says Sweetwater’s location makes it easy to get to his job at G10, about 12 miles away. When he drops the kids off at school, he enjoys heading on to downtown to run the trails at Lady Bird Lake.
The Torns family includes Anthony, 17; Alexis, 16; Ashton 14; and Amir, 9.
