Heritage girls win four straight

By Danny Hirt

 

The torrid pace of playing four games in a five-day period didn’t seem to bother the Heritage School girls’ varsity basketball players as they captured all four contests.

The Lady Eagles, who averaged just over 60 points per game during the recent swing, won their contests by an average margin of more than 33 points per game.

During that span, Kami Jones averaged 23 ppg while Christina Harpold scored at a 19 ppg clip.

Heritage will travel to San Antonio New Life on Saturday, then return to the Kroc Center in Kerrville to host Seguin Lifegate on Tuesday.

Starting time for both games has been set at 6 p.m.

Track athletes compete at A&M indoor meet

Fredericksburg High School athletes competed at the Texas A&M University Indoor High School Track Invitational on Friday and Saturday in their first meet of the season for returning lettermen.

“Not all of our lettermen from last year competed, since many are currently involved in other sports or stock shows, which were also having events this past weekend,” said coach Dan Aldrich. “A few of the kids entered on their own as unattached, but still represented our school in uniform.”

The goal for this meet, Aldrich said, was to enjoy the opportunity to compete on what he described as “the fastest indoor track facility in the nation” and to see the best competition the state has to offer right now.

All athletes competed together in divisions regardless of their UIL classification (1-5A). The meet was hosted by Texas A&M University and since it was not an official UIL-sponsored event, many athletes represented club teams or competed as individuals.

Boys' soccer optimistic about season

By Lisa Treiber-Walter

Although hesitant to say he is fielding a “seasoned” squad, Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity soccer coach Shannon Petsch is optimistic about the Billies’ 2014 schedule that lies ahead, following their performance in last weekend’s season opener.

The team’s first outing was a four-game appearance in the Marble Falls Tournament in which they finished with a win, two losses and a tie.

“Overall, we were pleased with how the weekend went,” Petsch said. “We got our players a lot of playing time that we usually don’t get.”

Coming up next will be the Smithson Valley Tournament tomorrow through Saturday, Jan. 16-18. FHS will kick off play against Waco High School on Friday. (Fredericksburg’s junior varsity boys are also expected to participate in this tournament to open their season.)
