Ladyhorns top JC to lock up district volleyball title

By Danny Hirt

With Tuesday, Oct. 20’s, 3-2 victory at Johnson City, the Harper High School Ladyhorn varsity volleyball team wrapped up its fifth outright district title since 2010.

In two other years — 2008 and 2009 — Harper ended up as league co-champions.

If last night’s contest at Utopia went Harper’s way — the regular season finale for both schools — then the Ladyhorns would have run the table, winning all 12 league matches this year. Results, however, were not known by this week’s press deadline.

“If we win out, the seniors would have been on varsity all four years and will have a 43-1 district record and four district championships,” said Harper head coach Gina Lumpkins.

The Ladyhorns swept Center Point, 3-0, on the road Friday, 26-24, 25-17, 25-17.

Joshua Stafford slips away from a tackler during Fredericksburg High School's 17-6 loss to Canyon Lake Friday night. The loss put the Billies at 1-2 with the final home game of the season coming next Friday against Liberty Hill. — Standard-Radio Post/Ken Esten Cooke.

A depleted Billies squad went head to head with a physical Canyon Lake team but couldn’t hang on in the end.

"I'm proud of the way we played tonight," coach Lance Moffett said. "I'm proud of the way we bounced back and responded from all of the adversity we faced coming out of last week. I'm disappointed with the score."

Fredericksburg High School varsity football (5-3, 1-2) lost to the Canyon Lake Hawks (4-4, 2-1) 17-6 in a District 14-4A DI road game Friday night.

The Billies hung with Canyon Lake through the first half, with the only points through the first two quarters coming from a 20-yard field goal by Canyon Lake kicker Mike Thorpe as the second quarter ended.

Canyon Lake started the third quarter and killed all but a minute, 18 seconds with an 18-play, 75-yard scoring drive.

Fredericksburg’s defense had the Hawks held to fourth down twice on the drive, but Canyon Lake converted each time.
