Fredericksburg baseball splits pair of district contests

Splitting their first two District 27-3A contests, the Fredericksburg High School varsity baseball team will travel to Navarro Friday for a 1 p.m. first pitch before heading to Wimberley Tuesday at 7 p.m.

The Billies fell at home to Boerne last night 11-0 after defeating Canyon Lake 7-4 on March 5.

Boerne 11, FHS 0

Last night, the Billies fell at home to Boerne 11-0.

“We faced a very good Boerne team tonight and we just couldn't get anything going at the plate,” head coach Derrick Dietrich said. “We only struck out three times which was a positive. We have had trouble putting the ball in play in previous games. We were able to get the bat on the ball for the most part but couldn't get the hits when we needed them.”

By Danny Hirt

Heritage School’s dream season for the girls’ basketball team ended in a nightmare Saturday afternoon as the Lady Eagles dropped the TAPPS 1A championship game, 61-43, to Granbury North Central Texas Academy.

The contest was played Saturday afternoon in the Timberview High School gymnasium in Mansfield.

The Lady Eagles had earned the right to vie for the state championship by downing San Antonio Gateway Christian School, 40-36, on Friday. The semifinal action was hosted by Mansfield High School.

“This weekend was an absolutely wonderful experience for these girls and one that they will remember forever,” said Heritage head coach Mike McKinnon.

Lady Eagles Kami Jones, Christina Harpold and Allie Metzger were named to the all-state tournament team.

Heritage ended its dream season with a 19-4 record.

FHS track to compete in Lampasas

After a successful meet in Burnet last week, Fredericksburg High School track teams will head back on the road on Friday to compete in the Lampasas Badger Relays.

The meet will begin with the 3200 meter run and field events at 2:30 p.m. before the running finals begin at 5 p.m.

Last Friday, the Billie varsity and JV girls both finished second at the Wells Fargo Burnet Relays, while the varsity boys placed fourth and JV boys finished fifth.

“As our first regular formatted meet invitational of the year, I was pleased with how the kids performed, to give them a starting point to work from,” head coach Dan Aldrich said. “We are by no means even close to where we want to be, but I also understand patience is just as important from the coach as it is from the kids when working through our workout progression.”

Girls' soccer ties Tivy 0-0

The good news about Fredericksburg High School’s Feb. 28 varsity girls soccer game against Kerrville Tivy is that neither the varsity nor junior varsity squads allowed any goals.

The varsity also didn’t score any, as their game ended in a 0-0 tie. JV scored one goal for a 1-0 shutout over the Lady Antlers.

The tie means that FHS will now have to defeat Boerne Champion or Alamo Heights to have a chance at the playoffs.

FHS girls soccer’s next games will be today, March 5, at Boerne Champion (a rescheduled game due to weather) with the JV team playing at 5 p.m. and the varsity playing at 7 p.m. Then, on Friday, March 7, FHS is at home against Alamo Heights (JV at 5 p.m., and varsity at 7 p.m.).

Boys' soccer to face Heights

By Lisa Treiber-Walter

Hoping to ride a wave of momentum through to a win in the last game of district play — and against the loop leader, at that — are the Fredericksburg High School varsity soccer boys.

Their final regulation-play test will come Friday, March 7, when the last-place 1-6-0 Billies will go up against the current first-place team in University Interscholastic League (UIL) District 54-4A standings — the 3-0-3 San Antonio Alamo Heights.

Kickoff will be at 7 p.m. on the Mules’ field.

 “Hopefully, we can continue with the momentum we’ve had and get a win and then see what the future holds after that,” said FHS Coach Shannon Petsch.

His Billies have suddenly “flipped a switch,” brightening their prospects with flashes of the best soccer “we have played all year,” Petsch said.

Last night, the squad lost to Boerne Champion, 1-0, while it dropped Friday night’s Feb. 28 game to Kerrville Tivy, 2-0.

Netters back on courts this weekend

By Lisa Treiber-Walter —

Fresh off a nearly two-week-long gap in action, Fredericksburg High School’s varsity tennis team will be looking to capitalize on “fresh legs” this Friday and Saturday, March 7-8.

The squad will lead into Spring Break 2014 with the Billies’ first-ever appearance in the Clemens/Steele Invitational, which will be played on Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District courts.

“This will be a new tournament for us,” said FHS Coach Randall King, who explained that Fredericks-burg, historically, has been tied up at this point in the spring season with team tennis playoffs.

Now that team tennis competition is completely self-contained in the fall, the date fell open and the tourney presented itself as a new prospect for the local “Big Red” roster.
