Harper knocked out of volleyball playoffs

By Danny Hirt —

 

Although the Harper Ladyhorns were able to hold off a Weimar run in the opening game of the Area round of UIL volleyball playoffs last Thursday, they simply could not quell the rising tide of momentum from the Lady Cats for the remainder of the match.

The match was played in the Gonzales High School gymnasium.

Harper, which fell to 30-7 on the season, took the first contest 27-25, but was edged out in the last three by scores of 20-25, 23-25 and 20-25.

The Ladyhorns had captured the District 27-1A championship by winning all 10 of their league matches.

The league’s two other playoff schools — runner-up Leakey and third place Junction have also been eliminated. Leakey succumbed to Brackett 3-2 in the opening bi-district round while Junction fell to Round Top-Carmine 3-0 in Area competition.

Longhorns fall in football finale

 By Danny Hirt — 

 

Sophomore quarterback Gus Sagraves was directly involved with all three of Harper’s touchdowns in the Longhorns’ 24-7 victory at Junction Friday evening.

The game was the season-ending contest for both schools. Harper ended the 2013 campaign with a 2-3 District 14-1A Division I record (5-5 overall) while the host Eagles finished up 1-4 in the league and also 5-5 on the year.

League-leading Mason (5-0, 8-1) wrapped up the district title with a convincing 61-10 win over Center Point, while Brackett (4-1, 8-1) took home second place by virtue of its 55-22 home victory over Ozona (3-2, 5-5) Friday

Because of its title, Mason will draw a bye in the first round of the Region IV UIL playoffs this weekend and will play the winner of the Shiner vs. Santa Maria game next weekend.

FHS netters win region title

By Lisa Treiber-Walter —

 

State-bound are the Fredericksburg High School varsity tennis team players, who won the University Interscholastic League (UIL) Region 4 Class 3A Team Tennis Tournament this past weekend in San Marcos.

Now, the Billie netters will prove just exactly where they stand among Texas’ Top 8 squads in the state team tennis tournament Friday and Saturday, Nov. 8-9, in Abilene.

“They’re all going to be pretty good at this level,” said FHS Coach Randall King of the other squads from Regions 1, 2, 3 and FHS’ own Region 4.

Expected to compete are: the defending state team tennis champion Abilene Wylie, Vernon, Frisco Lone Star, Kilgore, College Station High, Center and Rockport Fulton.

“Abilene Wylie will still be the team to beat,” King said.

In addition, challenges will be posed by Vernon, who was last year’s runner-up.

Football clinches first district title since 1998

By Matt Ward —

 

The last time Lance Moffett and the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team travelled to Wimberley in 2011, the Billies trailed by two touchdowns and never recovered in a 35-14 loss.

This year’s District 27-3A champion Billie football team is different.

Down 14-0 after the first quarter and 21-14 at halftime, Fredericksburg shut out the host Texans in the second half on their way to a 36-21 victory over Wimberley to clinch the first loop title for FHS football since 1998.

“What a great accomplishment this is,” Moffett said. “Wimberley has won the district championship 17 times in 27 years, including the last 11 years. Whether they’re down this year or not, they’re always in the hunt for the district championship, so it’s huge for our program to go and knock them off.”

Billies to host Bandera Friday

By Matt Ward —

 

For the first time since 1998, the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team earned a district championship as the Billies’ 36-21 road victory over Wimberley last Friday clinched FHS its first District 27-3A football crown.

The accomplishment can be somewhat tarnished, however, if the Billies fail to take care of business this Friday at 7:30 p.m. in their regular season finale at home against Bandera, according to FHS head coach Lance Moffett.

“We’ve got one more step to put an exclamation point on it. If it is undefeated district champs, okay, you really are,” Moffett said Monday. “If you stumble against Bandera, maybe you got lucky against Navarro. But if you beat Bandera and you’re 5-0, no doubt you are the district champions.”

Volleyball wins bi-district round over Somerset

By Matt Ward —

 

Although they were unable to defeat district foe Geronimo Navarro in a playoff seeding match Friday, the Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball team got a win when it mattered, defeating Somerset Tuesday night in the bi-district round at the Blossom Center of the Northside ISD in San Antonio.

The 26th-ranked Billies will face eighth-ranked Bellville in the area round Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at Bastrop Cedar Creek High School.

“They are traditionally a very strong program and this year is no different,” FHS head coach Jason Roemer said. “They were the Wimberley’s of the late ’80s and early ’90’s, winning a couple of state championships and consistently being in the state tournament.”
