Win or go home.

Fredericksburg High School’s varsity girls’ basketball team defeated Jourdanton, 55-37, Monday night, so now they will move on to the area round of the UIL 4A state playoffs.

FHS finished third in District 29-4A last week after falling to Devine 49-30 in their last regular season game on Feb. 9.

This set them up for their bi-district matchup versus Jourdanton, representing District 30-4A, which took place at New Braunfels High School.

“Anna Koenig and Emily Shepherd were big for us [Monday] night controlling the boards and being the most aggressive of the players on the offensive end,” head coach Carrie Grona said. “Mia Torres stepped up in the second half and Abby Spurgin’s rebounding helped us pull away.”

FHS girls’ track team eyes start of new season

One of the “most talented and largest” senior group of girls will be leading the way for the Fredericksburg High School girls’ track program this season.

And with track season set to open at the 28th Annual Bulldog Relays on Thursday, Feb. 25, at Burnet High School, head girls’ coach Dan Aldrich reported that there are around 58 girls participating this year, including 11 seniors.

“We have someone in every event that we feel can compete at each meet for top three point places and even have three quality relays to support the individual events,” Aldrich said.

“It is going to be a great season again for the girls,” according to Aldrich.


Training phases

Aldrich said that they have been having four full team practices for four weeks, and have completed the first phase of the season, which has had an emphasis placed on general conditioning, technique, flexibility and acceleration development.

By Scott Allen


Battlin’ on the road, the Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity basketball team got a win on Friday, Feb. 12 against Bandera, 64-28.

Their district record improves to 7-2 and they remain in second place in District 29-4A, behind Boerne (8-1 in district).

Head coach Tim Kaman said it was an overall solid game.

“Another nice job by the Billies at coming out strong defensively and setting the tone,” Kaman said. “The Billies were helped by good three-point shooting by Tyler Kaman and Eli Esensee, who both hit five each.”

Kaman added that the balance of the team is helping them.

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.
