Fredericksburg High School’s varsity softball team rallied from a 0-3 start on Friday with a pair of wins Saturday to finish at 2-3 in the San Marcos Tournament.

In their tournament finale Friday, the Billies held off a late Ganado rally for a 7-4 victory as Victoria Klein drove in three runs on a pair of singles.

FHS scored four runs on three singles in the fourth inning and then added three more in the fifth.

Four Ganado runs on two singles, a double and an error sparked the comeback rally before FHS ended the game.

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.

Home tourney

In their tournament opener Friday, the Billies shut out Comfort, 12-0.

“We had a strong game at the plate. We hit the ball better than we have all year against Comfort,” head coach Mitchel Etzel said. “We got good pitching from Macalah Jenschke.  Macalah had her strongest outing of the year this weekend. Our defense was much better and took care of the ball for our pitcher.”

Billie netters improve with court time

The Kerrville Tivy Invitational provided a chance for Fredericksburg High School’s varsity tennis team to get time on the court — something it has not gotten much of this year.

However, any rust is not showing in the games of several Billies, including Hannah Boubel and the doubles team of Parker Phillips/Sitman Wainwright, who managed to win their divisions at the Kerrville Tivy Invitational from March 6-8.

The Billies will host the Hill Country Championships on March 19-21 in Fredericksburg.

Weather has caused schedule changes and even forced the Billies to practice in the shelter of the gym, but the Billies continue to improve as the season wears on.

“We are still a little behind where we need to be overall due to weather and cancellation of the Billie Invitational, but we are making strides as the season progresses,” King said.
