By Danny Hirt

After picking up a win against three losses in the past weekend’s Sonora basketball tournament, the Harper boys’ varsity team dropped a 64-40 decision at Blanco Monday evening.

The hardwood season continues Saturday when Harper plays Sonora in the AT&T Center in San Antonio, with tip-off time to be announced later.

Then, following a Christmas and New Year break, Harper will resume tournament action Jan. 3-4 in Comfort.

Blanco 64, Harper 40

A slow start, combined with deadly shooting by host Blanco spelled doom for Harper Monday night as the Longhorns suffered a 64-40 loss.

While Harper could net only six points in the first quarter, Blanco managed to score 18 of its own points. The hosts then bested the Longhorns in every remaining period to secure the win.

Brayden Hagendorf led Harper in scoring with 13 points, followed by Guy Stevenson with 12.

Heritage to play for state title Saturday

By Danny Hirt

Despite weather-related delays that have affected the TAPPS six-man football playoffs of late, recent rescheduling has not hurt Heritage School’s chance for a sixth state title, according to the Eagles’ head coach Tim Shipman.

Last Saturday’s Division II championship game between Heritage and San Antonio Castle Hills First Baptist Academy was postponed until this Saturday, Dec. 14, due to wintry weather at the site — Zephyr ISD Stadium.

Now that things have blown over for now, the contest is back on, slated now for Saturday, Dec. 14, with a 6 p.m. kickoff.

FHS, Harper to be affected by realignment

By Matt Ward

While the dust will not settle for several months, change is coming for athletes at both Fredericksburg High School and Harper High School after the University Interscholastic League released enrollment figures Monday in advance of the UIL’s biennial reclassification in February.

Most schools across the state of Texas will be changing districts as the UIL expands from the current five classification system to six, though each classification is essentially being rebranded with a new number.

Fredericksburg will move from Class 3A to Class 4A, while Harper jumps from Class 1A to Class 2A.

The 2014-16 alignments will be released on Feb. 3 for football and basketball. District alignments for other activities will be released in the order of their seasons.

More information about UIL alignments is available at www.uiltexas.org/alignments.

Boys' basketball wins pair of games

Back at .500 after winning their first two contests of the season, the 2-2 Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ basketball team will travel to the Marble Falls tournament Thursday through Saturday.

FHS defeated Uvalde 46-37 at home last night after topping Medina Valley 48-40 on the road Nov. 26 prior to the Thanksgiving break.

At this weekend’s tournament in Marble Falls, the Billies will face 4A Dripping Springs Thursday at 9 a.m., followed by a 3 p.m. game with Houston Victory Prep, featuring the nation’s top-ranked freshman in 6’7” shooting guard Jarred Vanderbilt.

“We have our hands full this weekend,” FHS head coach Tim Kaman said. “This is probably terrible scheduling on my part, but we seem to turn things around after the Marble Falls tourney because of the competition level we see there.”

“Hopefully we can learn from our experiences there,” Kaman added. “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger is what they say.”
