Nine advance out of district tennis

By Lisa Treiber-Walter

A “rare” feat has been accomplished by the Fredericksburg High School (FHS) varsity tennis team for a second time in as many years.

A total of nine Billie netters have emerged fresh out of the University Interscholastic League (UIL) District 27-3A Tennis Tournament as qualifiers for the regional meet later this month.

“It was a great job by the kids across the board,” said FHS Coach Randall King, whose squad accounted for three division title wins, as well as a second-place finish, two third-place takes and more when the regular-season ender pitted six schools in battle for the league’s top spots on local courts here Thursday through Saturday, March 27-29.

“We built accordingly for this tourney and our players saw marked improvement from Day One,” King said.

Golfers to compete at district

By Lisa Treiber-Walter

When the Fredericksburg High School (FHS) varsity golfers head into district play next week, they’re going to need to focus on the virtues of “patience” and “course management” if they hope to succeed.

Tee off will be at 9 a.m. daily for the girls, who will be playing holes at the Buckhorn Golf Course in Comfort, and for the boys, who will be walking the greens at the Flying L Golf Course in Bandera.
