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.

Fredericksburg High School varsity girls’ basketball team found themselves on the wrong side of luck in the regional quarterfinal game in Wimberley last Tuesday.

The FHS squad lost to its District 29-4A opponent Boerne, 56-52, on Feb. 23 to end its season 17-19 overall and 6-4 in district.

“I am extremely proud of the girls. They fought and played hard. We were inches away from going to the regional tournament,” said Coach Carrie Grona. “But that luck thing. There’s something to be said about it.”

Grona said 42 turnovers coupled with bad luck hurt the team.

“I’ve never in 32 minutes of play witnessed 42 turnovers,” she said. “I felt helpless. It was like we had butter on our fingers. We played hard but we had 42 turnovers and the ball didn’t bounce our way. You gotta have a little bit of luck — not one rebound, not one shot bounced our way.”

Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ baseball relied on a pitchers’ duel and last-inning heroics to close out the 30th Annual Eberle-Boeck Memorial Tournament with a 2-0 victory on Feb. 27.

The Billies took fifth place in the tournament and split their tournament games, winning two and losing two.

FHS faced Regents in their final game Feb. 27 and scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth to defeat Regents, 2-1.

In previous tournament games, Antonian crushed the Billies, 16-0, on Feb. 26, tripled up Monahans, 6-2, on Feb. 25 and was on the receiving end of a McCallum shutout on Feb. 25, 2-0.

“We played good at times,” said FHS head coach Derrick Dietrich. “We struggled at the plate all weekend as a whole. We need to get more consistent at the plate and that will come. We need consistency — on the mound, on defense, and at the plate.”

FHS boys' varsity soccer's two wins improves district record to 2-0-1

 By Scott Allen

 

Winning back-to-back games, the Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity soccer has risen to 2-0-1 on district play and 7-6-3 on the season.

On Friday, Feb. 26, the boys defeated Canyon Lake, 4-2.

“The team is finally starting to get to where we want to be,” head coach Shannon Petsch said. “They are passing the ball better, shooting better, playing better defense and creating scoring opportunities.”

The Billies scored two quick goals in the first 10 minutes of the game, Petsch said, but Canyon Lake responded with two goals of their own.

“We pulled a player back the second half to help on defense and the score stayed the same,” Petsch said. “Lesson learned, just because something seems it is going to be easy, you cannot relax and you have to play the entire game.”

On Tuesday, Feb. 23, the Billies shut out Wimberley, 4-0, despite facing tough winds.

It was really nice for us to play so well in front of our fans who mean so much to our girls.”

FHS girls' track teams finish first at Burnet

It was a “great” start to the season on Thursday when the Fredericksburg High School girls’ track teams won both divisions of the Wells Fargo Burnet Bulldog Relays in Burnet.

The girls met their goal of winning their first meet in both the varsity and junior varsity divisions, Coach Dan Aldrich said.

“I was very proud of how the girls represented themselves and our girls’ program,” Aldrich said. “The competition was very good and we still have a long way to go before we get to the district meet, but we now have some times and marks that we can work with in moving forward in our workout progressions.”

The FHS track teams will be at home on Saturday when they compete in the 50th Annual Fredericksburg Carlin Wicker Relays in the FHS Stadium.
