By Matt Ward —

Fredericksburg High School’s varsity girls’ soccer team will return to the playoffs after missing out last season, following a 1-0 win over Canyon Lake March 18 and a 4-2 loss to Boerne, Friday.

FHS (13-6-3, 7-4-1) will enter the postseason as the third seed from District 28-4A after losing a tie-breaker coin flip with Wimberley for second place.

The Billies have already advanced to the second round of the University Interscholastic League playoffs thanks to a first round bye as there is no District 27-4A this season.

FHS will await Giddings, the winner of District 26-4A and Georgetown Gateway Prep Academy, the fourth place finisher in District 24-4A, in the area round slated for April 2-4.

Varsity boys split games in last week of regular season.

By Joshua McKinney —

The Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ soccer team split a pair of games in the final week of the District 28-4A season.

The Billies (14-6, 11-1) beat Canyon Lake on the road and lost at home against Boerne in their final action for two weeks before playoffs begin.

A first-round bye and an automatic berth in the area round after a dominating run through district is a great relief for the district champions, who were playing the likes of Boerne Champion, Kerrville Tivy and Alamo Heights — all 5A schools — in district last year.

Fredericksburg’s opponent in the area round will be the winner of a bi-district match between District 25-4A runner-up Lampasas and District 26-4A’s third-place team, Smithville. The area round match will take place April 2-4.

FHS home tourney washed out

Poor weather conditions caused the Hill Country Championships, hosted by the Fredericksburg High School tennis team, to be cancelled for most of Friday and all of Saturday.

Fredericksburg head tennis coach Randall King said his squad played exceptionally in the few matches the players were able to play before weather delays from the weekend’s storms caused the cancellation of the tournament.

“Mother nature seems to be our nemesis this spring,” said King. “We have had two tournaments rained out and it has set us back just a bit in preparation for district competition in April.”

King hopes FHS will get in a full tournament this weekend in Mason so players can get some “quality match play.” King is also in the process of finding a makeup tournament or dual match in San Antonio or Austin for April 2.

Harper High School’s varsity softball team registered two more District 29-2A victories over the last week, beating Brackett, 13-0, on March 17, then topping D’Hanis, 14-0, in a Monday contest rescheduled from Friday due to rainy weather.

Harper will go to Sabinal on Wednesday for a 4:30 p.m. District 29-2A encounter.

Fredericksburg High School’s varsity boys’ soccer team is guaranteed District 28-4A’s top seed going into the playoffs after defeating Wimberley, 5-1, on Friday, March 13.

With one Billie win or a Greyhound loss in the final two games of the season, FHS (13-5, 10-0) will earn the outright District 28-4A championship.

Fredericksburg’s first chance to seal a district championship will be Wednesday, March 18, at 7 p.m. in Canyon Lake. To close out the district schedule, FHS plays Boerne at 7 p.m., Friday, March 20, in Fredericksburg.

The Billies received a bye week during the bi-district round of the playoffs. FHS will play in the area round as its first playoff game in early April.

Fredericksburg and the other District 28-4A playoff teams advance to the area round of the playoffs because the University Interscholastic League did not form a District 27-4A this season.
