The Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ basketball team is now 7-3 after the Marble Falls Boys’ Basketball Tournament last weekend. 
Of the five games the Billies played, they won two. The Billies beat Gregory Portland and Crockett and lost to Leander Rouse, Elgin and St. Michael’s. 
“Overall, I’m fairly pleased with the tournament,” coach Tim Kaman said. “All of the opponents we faced will get us ready for district.  The Elgin and St. Michael’s game could have very easily gone our way, but we just missed some opportunities.”
Blake Tatsch made the All-Tournament team.  
Prior to the tournament, the Billies played a home game against Uvalde and won, 64-51, on Tuesday, Dec. 1. 
Head coach Tim Kaman said a big factor in the Billies’ success is their sheer amount of shooters.

The Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ basketball team has remained undefeated after beating Medina Valley, 59-48, and Marble Falls, 63-41, last week.

The varsity Billies are now 4-0 on the season.

Head coach Tim Kaman said the Billies are doing well on the season, but there’s always room for improvement.

“We are still trying to figure out our identity on offense, but our defense needs to be our ‘bread and butter’,” Kaman said.

“We need to continue to improve our defensive rebounding and decision making.  As small as we are, we need to be active.  We cannot afford to stand around and watch the ball.  We need to attack the boards and get those 50-50 balls.”

FHS girls build steam despite loss

The Fredericksburg High School varsity girls’ basketball team was starting to gain momentum, after winning, 60-31, on Nov. 23 over the Llano Yellowjackets, and again on Nov. 24 over the Lampasas Badgers, 49-40, but on Monday Nov. 30 they fell to La Vernia, 51-43.

“We have to be an inside/outside team this year and the players [are] starting to figure it out,” Head Coach Carrie Grona said. 

“The more our posts touch the ball, the more successful we will be this season.  We just need to stay focused.”

 

Thumping Llano

The Nov. 23 game at home against Llano was promising. The second quarter was the story as FHS outscored Llano, 23-5, building the lead they would maintain the rest of the game, winning, 60-31.

Abby Spurgin scored 30 points over the Yellowjackets and grabbed 12 rebounds for a double-double and FHS as a team shot 63 percent from the free throw line to complete the blowout.
