Both the varsity and junior varsity girls’ track and field teams from Harper High School earned district championship crowns at Thursday’s District 27-2A meet held at San Saba.

The top four finishers in each event will now advance to this Saturday’s area meet to be held at the Harper High School track facilities.

Trailing host San Saba by 15 points (135-120), the Ladyhorns captured first place in the meet’s final event, the 1,600-meter relay, to earn 16 points while San Saba failed to finish in the top four (and thus didn’t earn any points).

Fredericksburg defeated the Bandera Bulldogs 2-1 in the regional quarterfinals Tuesday night at Kerrville Tivy Antler Stadium to advance to the regional semifinals.

FHS will play Hidalgo Friday at McAllen ISD.

The Billies beat Lampasas 3-1 to advance past the area round Friday night at Lake Travis High School.

Coach Shannon Petsch said the two-week off period after a bi-district bye — District 28-4A teams did not have a bi-district opponent due to the lack of a district 27-4A — did not help the district champions play their sharpest in FHS’ playoff opener.

“Our timing was off, our shooting was, our shape was off and so was our decision making,” Petsch said.

The 2015 campaign came to an abrupt end Tuesday evening for the Fredericksburg High School varsity girls’ soccer team, which fell to one of the state’s top-ranked 4A schools in Salado, 3-1, Tuesday in the regional quarterfinals at Austin’s Burger Stadium.

“This has been a phenomenal season. The girls are awesome and I couldn't be more proud of the way they played,” head coach Logan Minshew said. “They represented us with unity, hard work and class.”

Fredericksburg allowed an early goal against Salado and were unable to recover, trailing 2-0 near halftime.

“We had a tough road to get to the state tournament. We took care of a top 10 team in Giddings and fell short against number two Salado,” Minshew said. 

The Billies were able to trim the deficit just before the end of the half when Taylor Husfeld found Daisy Flores for a goal to make the game 2-1.

Netters sending 12 to regionals

By Matt Ward

Fredericksburg High School varsity tennis players dominated the competition in what head coach Randall King called “a great two days of tennis” at the District 29-4A championship held Monday and Tuesday at Fredericksburg High School.

Twelve Billies will represent FHS at the Region IV-4A championships April 20-21 in Corpus Christi after finishing in the top three in their division at district.

First- and second-place finishers advance automatically to regional competition, with third-place finishers serving as alternates.

“We had some very competitive matches to end the regular season. We are very proud of this group of kids,” King said. “It has been a very unusual spring weather-wise, which set us back by two tournaments. The team made strides in the last two weeks to catch up and finish well.”
