Fredericksburg High School’s varsity girls’ soccer has already punched their ticket to the area playoffs before the end of the regular season as the Billies can do no worse than third in District 28-4A, following a 1-1 tie at Wimberley Friday night.

FHS will host Canyon Lake tonight at 7 p.m.  and Boerne, Friday, at 5:30 p.m. to conclude the regular season.

The Billies (12-5-3, 6-3-1 district) are a half game up on the Texans (6-4-1) with two games left to play, while Wimberley only has a home date with Canyon Lake Friday left on their schedule.

If the two schools tie at the end of the regular season, playoff seeding will be determined by goal differential.

Fredericksburg’s quest for a high school boys’ basketball state championship came to an end Friday night as the Billies fell to La Marque, 58-41, at the Steinke Physical Education Center of Texas A&M University-Kingsville.

“I’m disappointed in the outcome of the game, but very proud of these young men.  They fought hard all season,” head coach Tim Kaman said. “They did so many wonderful things this year. Back-to-back district championships, bi-district champs, area champs, and made it to the regional tourney for the first time.   That is a pretty good resume these young men created.  We will miss our seniors.”

Fredericksburg concludes their season with a 26-10 record (9-1 district).

FHS girls' track dominates at Tivy

 

After their meet was cancelled the week before because of very cold weather, the conditions were “ideal” on Friday when the Fredericksburg High School varsity and junior varsity girls’ track teams competed in the 41st Annual Kerrville Tivy Antler Relays.

In Kerrville, the varsity girls finished first in their division while the FHS JV girls were second.

“The weather was ideal for the Kerrville meet, which hopefully is a sign of warmer weather in the upcoming four weeks as we focus on improving for the district track meet,” head track coach Dan Aldrich said.

The Kerrville meet was the third on the schedule for the Billies, but because of the very cold weather on Feb. 27, the FHS teams were unable to compete at the Burnet Relays, so it was only the second meet of the season and the first using a traditional format.

Fredericksburg opened its track season with the A.J. Loth Relays on Feb. 21 at FHS Stadium.
