FHS boys eliminated from hoop playoffs

By Matt Ward

A district-championship winning season for the 24th-ranked Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ basketball team came to an end Tuesday night as the Billies fell to sixth-ranked San Antonio Sam Houston 66-50 at Smithson Valley High School.

“No matter the outcome of tonight’s game, I was really proud of our guys. They were exhausted after the game and gave everything they had,” head coach Tim Kaman said. “They left it all out on the court. That is what you have to do every time you compete. You can only hope that it is enough.  Tonight it just was not enough.”

Fredericksburg ends the season as the District 27-3A champions with a 28-9, 9-1 district record, tying a school record for number of season victories and winning two tournament titles.

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.
