Volleyball defeats 11th ranked Boerne
By Matt Ward —
Undefeated early in their District 27-3A schedule, the Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball team notched a big win under their belts last night as they rallied to defeat 11th ranked Boerne on the road 25-17, 9-25, 26-24, 23-25, 17-15.
FHS defeated Bandera 25-19, 25-19, 25-15 Friday night at home in the district opener for both schools.
Fredericksburg will travel to Wimberley at 6 p.m., Friday evening, before hosting Navarro Tuesday at 7 p.m.
“I wish it got easier but it does not, not in this district,” Fredericksburg head coach Jason Roemer said. “We defeated #11 tonight in their gym, travel to #4 on Friday and then host #20 on Tuesday. We’re going to have to build off of this win and continue playing well.”

“Words can’t express how proud I am of these girls. We came to play and it was a total team effort tonight,” Roemer said. “Our backs were against the wall and it felt like we were going to let it slip away. There were a lot of kids who played their hearts out tonight.”
