Netters finish third at Hill Country Classic

By Lisa Treiber-Walter

When Fredericksburg High School tennis coach Randall King put his varsity players up against a “measuring stick” in the form of Class 5A and 4A schools at Mason’s tournament over the weekend, they left a pretty tall mark on the wall.

The Billies finished third overall in the 2014 Hill Country Classic, behind first-place Duncanville and second-place Abilene Wylie.

Fredericksburg’s 129-point finish placed it ahead of Class 5A schools San Angelo Central (123 points) in fourth place, San Antonio Churchill (108 points) in fifth place and Abilene Cooper (82 points) in sixth place.

“This tourney always provides a great challenge for our kids as it puts them up against some of the best tennis players in the state,” King said.

In addition to getting exposed to “a lot of really good tennis both days, it forces our kids to play at a higher level,” King said.

By Danny Hirt

District 27-1A champion Harper High School got off to a slow start and never recovered, dropping a 60-39 decision to Thorndale in the area round of the UIL Region IV basketball playoffs Friday.

The contest was played at Marble Falls.

The Longhorns finished the 2013-14 campaign with a 20-12 record.

Although the Longhorns mounted something of a comeback in the third, their plans went awry in the final eight minutes when Thorndale outscored Harper by a 16-4 margin to secure the victory.
