Boys' soccer beats Liberty Hill

Netters open spring season with win

By Lisa Treiber-Walter

Combining a few varsity and junior varsity players, Fredericksburg High School opened its spring tennis season with a 13-6 (15-9) win over the San Saba varsity here Thursday, Jan. 16.

“We are a little rusty after the holidays, but it was a good start for us,” said FHS Coach Donald Hohn.

“We have strong expectations coming off fall team tennis,” added FHS Coach Randall King, whose Billies finished second in state in team tennis play (behind defending champion Abilene Wylie) on Nov. 9 to finish the fall with a 23-6 record.

“It’ll give us a different outlook without team tennis sandwiched in the middle of the spring schedule this year,” King said.

In past years, qualifying school programs played out most of their team tennis schedule in the fall, but then had to take a break in their University Interscholastic League (UIL) spring action for the team tennis finals.
