Back-to-back for Boubel


"I didn't think about winning. I went in there with an empty head and played every game like I should play. Keeping my head was the hardest part of the title." — State champ, FHS sophomore Hannah Boubel

By Joshua McKinney

Fredericksburg High School sophomore Hannah Boubel is well on her way to smashing every FHS tennis record and not even late nights and rainy weather could slow down the defending 3A state champion in girls’ singles.

Boubel defended her crown as she swept all three girls’ singles matches at the University Interscholastic League state tennis tournament last Tuesday through Thursday at the Mitchell Tennis Center and Omar Smith Instructional Tennis Courts, on the campus of Texas A&M University, in College Station.

She defeated Willis Point’s Shelby Pirtle, 6-1, 6-0, in the quarterfinals and Palestine’s Stevie Ybarra, 6-2, 6-1, in the semifinals before besting district rival Alexa Rice of Boerne in the championship match, 6-2, 6-1, to win the girls’ singles state championship.

Fredericksburg High School junior Chase Whiting “hurdled” her way onto the medal stand twice on Saturday at the University Interscholastic League State 4A Track and Field 2015 Championships in Austin.

Whiting earned two medals in her two races, setting a new personal best in the 300 meter hurdles with a time of 44.63 and finishing third in the 100 meter hurdles.

“A bronze and a silver medal in two events at the state track meet was a perfect way for Chase to close out her season this year after finishing fourth last year in the 100 hurdles as a sophomore,” said head track coach Dan Aldrich.

He said, “Her goal this year was to make it on the medal stand in two events and she got it done.”

Sharing the spotlight with Whiting at the state competition was FHS junior pole vaulter Lauren Smith who tied for fourth and senior Sam Studebaker who was fifth in the 800 meter run.

Ladyhorns advance to the regional semis

By Danny Hirt

 Harper High School needed only two games to advance to the Region IV 2A softball semifinals when it defeated Three Rivers, 6-0 and 13-0, in the best-of-three series held last Thursday and Friday.

“The effort over the two nights to take the series was amazing,” said HHS head coach Scott Vasquez. “The girls played solid on defense both nights and (starting pitcher Shelby) Koenig was superb in the circle for the series.”

On the offensive side of the coin, Vasquez added that “the bats came alive late on Thursday, game one, and carried over into game two on Friday.”

Due to rain storms, locations for the games were changed at the last minute. Thursday’s contest was played at Huber Ranch in Seguin while the Friday game was moved to Wimberley.

Longhorns knocked out of baseball playoffs

By Danny Hirt

Marathons are not always foot races of 26.2 miles; sometimes they happen in other sports.

Case in point: Saturday’s Region IV 2A area round baseball playoff game saw the Kenedy Lions defeat Harper by a razor-thin 1-0 score in a contest that lasted 14 innings.

The game, played in Ozona, was a statistician’s dream — the two schools combined for 99 at-bats which saw a total of 372 pitches (with 247 of those being strikes) while producing 18 hits, 34 strike outs, yet only five base-on-balls.

This series was a one-game-only affair, a decision made by a coin toss.
