For her second consecutive year, Robyn Remschel won the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) championship by winning the women’s 200-yard backstroke.

The 2014 Fredericksburg High School graduate is a sophomore at McMurry University in Abilene and swam at the 2016 SCAC Men’s and Women’s Swimming & Diving Championships, Feb. 10-13, in Lewisville.

Her time of 2:01.95 minutes was both a SCAC meet — and McMurry school record, replicating her performance just 24 hours before when she won the 100 backstroke with a time that was both SCAC and McM records.

Individually during the meet, Remschel also placed fifth in the 50-yard freestyle, setting a McMurry school record in that event, as well.

FHS boys’ soccer now 5-6-2 on season after road games

By Scott Allen

 

Playing a couple of road games after a week of no play, the Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity soccer team received a win and a loss, resulting in a 5-6-2 season record.

On Friday, Feb. 12, the boys lost to Liberty Hill, 3-2.

Head coach Shannon Petsch said the momentum of the game switched all night.

“Liberty Hill went up 1-0 early in the second half and then we put the next two in to go up 2-1,” Petsch said. “Liberty Hill tied it up and then went up 3-2 with two minutes left in the game.”

Petsch said the game was tough without a starting goalie who was out due to a red card he received the previous week.

Bomb scare causes Harper baseball scrimmage in Blanco to be canceled

A not-so-funny-thing happened to Harper’s baseball team on its way to Blanco High School for a scrimmage.

“We got a phone call while we were on the way to the game right before we got to Fredericksburg from our superintendent (Chris Stevenson) telling us that the game was cancelled due to a bomb scare in Blanco,” said Harper head baseball coach Scott Lake.

Lake said they immediately turned the bus around and returned to their school where they held an intra-squad scrimmage on their home field.
