The Heritage School Lady Eagles put together an impressive attack on both ends of the court to take a 3-0 varsity volleyball win on Thursday against Seguin Lifegate in the first contest played in Heritage’s new Multi-Purpose Activities Center (MPAC, for short).

Heritage kept the MPAC winning streak alive two days later by topping San Angelo Cornerstone Christian School in three straight games, 25-18, 25-15, 25-15.

The Lady Eagles, who are currently sporting a 6-1 district record, will host Spring Branch Living Rock Thursday, starting at 6 p.m. The night has been dubbed Senior Recognition Night.

Results from Tuesday’s match at Seguin Lifegate were not known by this week’s press deadline.

For Heritage School, its annual “Flight Night” is the culmination of a week-long celebration of the school as well as those who support it — from grandparents to friends.

It’s the school’s version of Homecoming.

But the week’s ending event, Friday night’s six-man football game with the visiting Rams from San Marcos Hill Country, was disappointing to the Eagles’ fans, to say the least.

When the smoke had cleared by halftime, Heritage found itself on the no-fun end of a 50-0 score.

The Eagles will try to position themselves for a possible playoff position when they host Spring Branch Living Rock Christian School at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.

A tough loss leaves the Billies with a 1-1 record and four games to go in district.

Fredericksburg High School football (5-2, 1-1) lost to the Boerne Greyhounds (5-2, 1-1) 31-14 on Friday night, Oct. 16, at FHS stadium to suffer the Billies’ District 14-4A DI loss.

The Billies started the game on their own 31-yard line and drove down the field to score on a one–yard quarterback sneak by Kyle Reeh for the early 7-0 lead.

Boerne answered with a long scoring drive, moving the ball 80 yards and finishing the drive with Nick Novak rushing 10-yards for a score to make it 7-7 with 4:54 left in the first quarter.

Both defenses held the other team’s offense in check, and the first half ended with a 7-7 tie.

The first possession of the second half belonged to Boerne, which used a 10-play, 66-yard drive for a field goal and the 10-7 edge at 8:28 in the third quarter.

One rivalry game is down, and another one’s on the way.

After beating Bandera 34-20 on the road in last Friday’s District 29-4A opener, Fredericksburg High School (5-1, 1-0) varsity football faces the Boerne High School Greyhounds (4-2, 0-1) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 16, at FHS Stadium.

“It’s a rivalry so I don’t think it will take much to get our kids or their kids fired up in this game,” Coach Lance Moffett said.

Boerne has a one-win edge in the two teams’ series history and has won three of four against the Billies’ during Moffett’s tenure (Boerne currently leads the all-time series 15-14, according to Lone Star Football Network).

“We’re very similar in regard to everything we do,” Moffett said. “It seems like every year in every sport, it’s us and them battling for a playoff spot or district championship.”

It might not have been the prettiest game but a win’s a win and the Billies chalk up a district W.

Fredericksburg High School varsity football (5-1, 1-0) fought turnovers and penalties to beat the Bandera Bulldogs (2-4, 0-1), 34-20, in the District 14-4A DI opener Friday night in Bandera.

The Billies committed 11 penalties for 95 yards, including two calls that erased touchdowns, and turned the ball over twice.

But 20 points in the fourth quarter, including two scores after Bandera turnovers, and 219 rushing yards helped Fredericksburg start district with a win.

“I’m proud of the way we played at the end,” Coach Lance Moffett said. “We came out flat and that’s on me. This is district. We knew they were going to get ready and I said this week that they were going to come out fighting and they were going to be a good team.”

The Billie netters capped their district season on Thursday with a second consecutive District 29-4A team tennis championship.

Fredericksburg High School’s varsity team tennis (19-2, 4-0) beat the Bandera Bulldogs, 10-0, on Thursday, Oct. 8, at H-E-B Tennis Center in Kerrville to win the District 29-4A championship.

 The Billies have won both district titles since falling under the University Interscholastic League’s umbrella for team tennis.

“I think the kids played well,” said coach Randall King. “We went out with the intent of finishing the district loop with a victory to claim a district championship.”

Even though district play wrapped up last week, the Billies still have several matches remaining.

Fredericksburg will use these matches to work on a few things before the Region IV Team Tennis Tournament on Oct. 30-31 in San Antonio.

FHS varsity volleyball enters second round of district play

Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball started the second half of its District 29-4A schedule with two more games on the road before finishing out the regular season at home.

“We are half-way through the district race and have played well in the first half,” said head coach Jason Roemer, “but we still have not played our best volleyball.”

“That’s the encouraging part,” he said.

The FHS varsity squad is at the top of the standings in District 20-4A at 5-0 after defeating Devine, 25-16, 25-23, 25-21, on Friday night and Lytle, 25-9, 25-12, 25-11, on Tuesday, Oct. 6.

Fredericksburg played what Roemer predicted to be a “tough one” on Tuesday night, Oct. 13, in Bandera. (Results from that game will be published in next week’s newspaper.)

On Friday night, the Billies will play their fifth consecutive road game when they travel to Hondo for a 4:30 p.m. match-up.
