Eagles open new football season Friday at home

 

By Danny Hirt

 

Fresh off of a four-school day of scrimmages last Sat-urday, the six-man football team from Heritage School starts its 2014 campaign when the Eagles host Round Rock Concordia on Friday, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

“As a coach and a team, you always want to get out of the gates fast,” said Her-itage head coach Tim Ship-man. “The players and the staff have been working re-ally hard the past few weeks and it is exciting to finally get the season underway.”

Concordia, according to Shipman, is new to the world of six-man football. But the school’s mentor, Andy Cheshire, is experi-enced in this version of the gridiron game. Having coached at Round Rock Christian School, Cheshire, Shipman added, is quite knowledgeable about six-man.

“He (Cheshire) is familiar with us (Heritage) as he has scouted us many times over the years,” Shipman said.

Center Point bests Heritage Tuesday night

Despite losing Tuesday night’s home volleyball match in five games to non-district opponent Center Point, Heritage School head coach Carol Bell found some positive aspects of her team’s play.

“Heritage found themselves playing the best offensive match yet,” Bell said, “but defensively we still need to pull it together.”

She was impressed by the work put in by middle hitters Jamie Hoermann and Lindsey Pressler who “fought the entire match playing as not only great front row attackers but worthy back row defense, as well.”

Bell also looked to the play of Christina Harpold and Abby Sauer in the setter/hitter positions with encouragement.

“Sydney Richburg played the best defensive game so far this season,” Bell added. In addition, “Sarah Andrews scored with several ace serves.”

Billies to host Lago Vista Thursday

 

By Matt Ward

 

Battlin’ Billie fans will get their first glimpse of the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team in action tomorrow evening as FHS hosts Lago Vista for a scrimmage at 5:30 p.m. at the newly renovated FHS Stadium.

Junior varsity and freshman teams will face off at 4 p.m.

Admission is set at $5 per family with all proceeds to benefit the Texas High School Coaches Education Foundation’s benevolence fund. 

The Billies will look to get the upper hand on Lago Vista after a 2-1 “loss” in their first scrimmage at Medina Valley Thursday.

“It was a typical first scrimmage, but I think we’re ahead of where we were last year,” head coach Lance Moffett said. “We couldn’t move the ball at all last year. We had an inexperienced offensive line, they were doing a lot of things up front and we couldn’t block them.”

During Saturday’s tournament contests, the Ladyhorns topped Ingram 25-22, 21-25, 25-16 before losing to Boerne Geneva 21-25 and 22-25, then taking on Uvalde in the consolation finals.
