Losing all their games during the weekend’s Smithson Valley Tournament, the Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity soccer team has now fallen to 2-4-2 on the season.

The boys will next play in Uvalde at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 22.

During the Smithson Valley Tournament, the Billies lost to San Antonio Lee, 3-0, College Station, 2-1, and lost in a shootout to Tivy after tying the game, 1-1.

Head coach Shannon Petsch said the tournament was a good test for the Billies.

Greyhounds first up in district

By Scott Allen

 

Losing back-to-back home games, the Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ basketball team will look to bounce back as they get ready for district play on Friday, Jan. 15 against Boerne.

On Friday, Jan. 8 the boys’ hoops team had a home game against the Antonian Apaches.

Head coach Tim Kaman said the team fought hard, but ended up on the wrong side of the fence, 54-48.

“We played an outstanding Antonian team that is 18-4, and had a chance to win the game,” Kaman said. “With the game tied, they had a kid that made a great shot to put them up three points with 30 seconds to go. We just could not answer with a big play.”

FHS girls fall in district opener against Bandera

Fredericksburg High School varsity girls’ basketball opened district with a loss last Friday, Jan. 8 to Bandera, 50-46.

“Bandera wanted it more than we did. We showed up flat and uninspired,” head coach Carrie Grona said.

“We shot well from the field, but the 27 turnovers didn’t allow us to put up enough shots.” 

This loss brought the girls to 9-15 overall and 0-1 in district play.

The Billies played their district home opener last night at 6:30 p.m. against the Hondo Owls but scores were not available as of press time.

“I think the angry bear was awakened [in practice] and we have been more focused and determined ever since. We have to fight tonight like our lives depend on it,” Grona said before the game.

Billie boys' varsity soccer begins season at 2-1-1

By Scott Allen

 

Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity soccer kicked off the season with a tournament in San Antonio last weekend and the boys went 2-1-1 on the four games.

Head coach Shannon Petsch was overall pleased with the team’s performance.

“The tournament went really well,” Petsch said. “We got to see all the kids play their positions as well as other positions and we really got a feel for what we had on the field.”

The team started the tournament with a 3-3 tie against San Antonio Lanier on Friday, Jan. 8. Petsch said they had to fight back to get in the game.

“The game started out too easy.  We scored one early, let up, and they scored three times in the next 10 minutes,” Petsch said. “After that, we got back on track, scored one before half and then one in the second to tie it up. Lesson number one for the weekend: Do not think it is going to be easy.”
