FHS JV boys' soccer remains undefeated in district play

By Scott Allen

 

Winning like it’s going out of style, the Fredericksburg High School JV boys’ soccer team has only lost two games of their entire season, and have improved to 13-2 on the season.

The boys have remained undefeated (6-0) in District 29-4A.

On Friday, March 11, the boys traveled to Wimberley and defeated the Texans, 2-0.   

Head coach Michael Gutierrez said the team dominated the entire game, despite a low score.

“Wimberley seldom challenged the Billies’ goal throughout the game,” Gutierrez said. “Wet weather posed a big challenge for FHS’ offense as the wet field made for unsure footing and also made shooting on goal difficult.”

Luis (Beto) Neri opened the scoring for the Billies late in the first half, Gutierrez said.

Billie boys, girls win Wicker Relays

Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ track team finished first in their division at the 50th Annual Carlin Wicker Fredericksburg Relays on Saturday.

Also on Saturday, the FHS JV boys’ team finished third in the standings.

“The kids on both squads are doing a great job in practice and buying into the program,” Coach Shane Willis said.

“We are looking to keep improving our conditioning in the mid-distance races and our technique in the field events,” Willis said. “We have a lot of improvement still left to do but we are right where we want to be at this point in the season.”

Held in the FHS Stadium, the annual track and field event also drew teams from Kerrville Tivy, Lampasas, Liberty Hill, Marble Falls, Bandera, Fredericksburg Heritage School, Lytle and Ingram Tom Moore.

By Scott Allen

 

Continuing with their win streak, the Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity soccer team has risen to 4-0-1 in District 29-4A play and 9-6-3 on the season after back-to-back home wins last week.

On Friday, March 4, the boys dominated the Bandera Bulldogs, 5-1.

Head coach Shannon Petsch said the team had a tough start. 

                “On Friday night, we started out pretty poor for the first 10 minutes before we got it going,” Petsch said. “We scored two goals in the first half and then came back with three in the second. The players are starting to get that look that they really want it this year.  We are starting to go after everything right now and starting to hit our potential.  If we keep this up, they will accomplish really good things this year.”

                On Tuesday, March 1, the Billies squeezed past the Boerne Greyhounds, 1-0.

FHS boys' hoops season ends

By Scott Allen

 

After a loss in the regional quarterfinals to Beeville Jones, 71-58, Tuesday, March 1, the Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity basketball season has come to an end.

Head coach Tim Kaman said the boys gave it their all in the hard-fought game.

“We played a very talented Beeville team and just came up short,” Kaman said. “We knew that they were a big, athletic team, and it would be tough.  They made more plays than us and deserved the win, but I thought our guys played their tails off.  We never quit. We kept fighting.”

The Trojans used their height advantage early in the game to give them a cushy eight-point lead, Kaman said, and sunk a few three-pointers to go into halftime with a 12-point advantage. The Billies could never get past the lead.
