Harper boys fall to Medina

By Danny Hirt

Harper varsity boys’ district winning streak came to an end Friday evening when the Longhorns dropped a 64-44 home decision against Medina.

The ’Horns now sport an 8-1 league mark with one more regular season basketball game to go. However, that season is being extended, thanks to the weatherman. Tuesday night’s contest at Mason was postponed until tonight (Wednesday, Feb. 12) due to potentially icy road conditions. Game time will still be 6:30 p.m.

Medina 64, Harper 44

Muddled in a slow first quarter, the Longhorns fell behind early and couldn’t recover as they dropped a 64-44 decision at home to Medina last Friday evening.

Trailing 14-6 after one, Harper dropped back to a nine-point (30-21) deficit at intermission. But the visitors broke away in the third period, outscoring the Longhorns 19-9 during that eight-minute stretch.

Heritage boys topple River City 44-34

By Danny Hirt

Playing four games in a six-day stretch has, for whatever reason, become a common occurrence for the boys’ varsity basketball team from Heritage School.

For the second time during the 2013-14 campaign, the Eagles have faced such a situation, this time coming out winning all four.

During the past week, Heritage bested Gateway on Thursday 60-44; topped San Angelo Cornerstone Saturday, Feb. 6, 68-37; beat Seguin Lifegate Monday evening 45-42, and then completed the sweep by defeating Selma River City Believers 44-34 last night.

Playoff action is just around the corner for the Eagles. However, day, date, time and opponent have yet to be announced.

Athletic directors from across the region — including Fredericksburg High School’s Lance Moffett — circled a small table in an Austin area University Interscholastic League Regional Service Center, eagerly awaiting the arrival of the UIL realignment for 2014-16.

About five minutes prior to 9 a.m. Monday morning, a pair of UIL officials brought out the cardboard box filled with realignment packets, set them on the table while giving final instructions and then made ADs wait the final three minutes until the clock struck nine.

“I’m trying to get as close to the table as I can and at nine o’clock, they just open the box and go,” Moffett said.

Certain uncertainty

There were plenty of unknowns heading into realignment, but several things were already assured.

By Matt Ward

Despite a 60-51 home loss to Bandera last night, the Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ basketball team can secure a District 27-3A championship with a pair of victories this week.

On Friday, FHS defeated Wimberley on the road 63-38.

The 23rd ranked Billies will host Canyon Lake on Friday night before travelling to Boerne on Tuesday for the regular season finale. Tip-off in both contests is slated for 7 p.m.

Bandera 60, FHS 51

Missing two players due to the flu and suffering from early foul trouble, the Billies led early, but a halftime lead gave Bandera the momentum needed to defeat Fredericksburg 60-51 Tuesday.

“It was just one of those games where nothing goes right,” FHS head coach Tim Kaman said. “I thought we really played hard tonight, but we just did not play real smart.”

Girls' basketball advances to playoffs

Regular season play may have come to an end, but the Fredericksburg High School varsity girls have more basketball to play.

That’s because the FHS varsity squad finished third in District 27-3A and earned a spot in the post-season playoffs.

The FHS girls defeated Bandera, 45-24, on Tuesday night and won over Wimberley, 60-58, in overtime on Friday night to finish 6-4 in District 27-3A.

“Finishing 6-4 in our district is not an easy accomplishment,” said Carrie Grona, head girls basketball coach.

“It was a hard-fought 6-4 and I am so very proud of these ladies,” Grona added.

Fredericksburg will face San Antonio Sam Houston in the bi-district playoffs Monday evening at 7 p.m. at Boerne Champion.

Boerne won District 27-3A with a 9-1 record while Navarro was second with an 8-2 district record.

Also making the playoffs with a fourth-place finish in the standings is Wimberley at 5-5.

Boys' soccer to start district play

By Lisa Treiber-Walter

The start of District 54-4A loop play looms ahead this Friday, Feb. 7, for the Fredericksburg High School (FHS) varsity boys’ soccer team and, if the “gauges” are reading correctly of late, then the Billies are ready.

Last night, the squad went kick-for-kick against Canyon Lake to tie on the road, 2-2.

And, in Friday’s appearance in the FHS Stadium, Fredericksburg stood its ground against a “rough-and-tumble” Marble Falls squad to win, 4-2.

Those past two games have brought the Billies to a 4-5-2 record heading into the spin-up of the district rotation.

This year’s agenda pits FHS against four loop opponents in a series of eight games evenly split between home and away destinations  over the next five weeks.
