It was a “redemption win” for the Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball team last Tuesday when they defeated Liberty Hill in three sets, 25-22, 25-26, 29-27, at home.

“This was a redemption win for the kids after we lost to Liberty Hill in the Austin tournament earlier in the season,” head coach Jason Roemer said.

Two games are on the schedule in the coming week. On Friday night, Sept. 18, the Billies will travel to San Angelo Central for a 5 p.m. game before hosting Brownwood on Tuesday, Sept. 22, at 6:30 p.m.

District 29-4A play opens at home on Friday, Sept. 25, with a 4:30 p.m. game against Bandera.

Last night (Sept. 15), the Billies were in Burnet, and results from that game will be posted in next week’s newspaper.

FHS tennis beats 6A Clemens, Steele teams

By Joshua McKinney

Fredericksburg High School varsity team tennis beat Cibolo Steele, 10-1 (17-2), and Schertz Clemens, 10-2 (14-5), on Saturday, Sept. 12, in San Antonio.

“We were a little shorthanded, but the kids stepped up and played well,” said coach Randall King. “We continue to improve in doubles by being more aggressive and looking to set the tone early in the match. We are still lacking a little consistency in singles play but that will get better.”

Playing Steele and Clemens, two programs that compete in Class 6A, will help Fredericksburg get ready for playoffs and high pressure play.

“The tougher competition helps us get ready for the playoffs,” King said. “We learn to deal with the faster pace and higher level of play. It also teaches the kids to play better under pressure.”

As a senior, Avery has worked hard to earn her libero spot the past three years.”

Fredericksburg High School football lost to the Burnet Bulldogs 28-16 on Friday night at FHS Stadium.

Kyle Reeh scored on a four-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to bring the game to 28-16 with 2:02 left in the game but Fredericksburg failed to convert the two-point conversion or recover an onside kickoff following the score.

"I'm disappointed for the kids, but I'm happy for who we are as a team," said FHS Head Coach Lance Moffett. "We played a good team tonight and went toe-to-toe with them. We had a chance to come back out and win at half time but we didn't execute at times.

Fredericksburg started the game with a 27-yard field goal by Jacob Eckhardt on the opening drive to make it 3-0 in the Billies favor.

The defense forced Burnet to punt on the Bulldogs first possession, and started the next drive at their own seven-yard line after a holding played moved Fredericksburg back eight yards.

Offense, defense, special teams.

No matter what side of the ball the Billies lined-up on, they figured out a way to score.

Fredericksburg High School varsity football jumped to a 29-point lead in the first quarter (2-0, 0-0) to beat Austin Travis (0-2, 0-0), 46-28, in a non-district game Friday night, Sept. 4, at House Park in Austin.

Scoring in all phases of the game is exactly what head coach Lance Moffett thinks is the sign of a well-rounded football team.

“It just means we’re balanced and that’s what we want to be,” Moffett said. “Coach (Bill) Wilder is just tickled to death because we scored twice on defense. The guys get some stickers on their helmets for scoring on defense, and that’s what they want to do.”

A 42-yard field goal, a fumble returned for a touchdown and a blocked punt run in for a score, plus four offensive touchdowns led to the total team victory over Travis.

Consistent play the key versus Burnet

By Joshua McKinney —

“Excellence through consistency” is the phrase of the week for a Billie football team heading into a rematch against a tough Hill Country rival.

Fredericksburg High School (2-0, 0-0) is set for a homecoming rematch against the Burnet Bulldogs (1-1, 0-0) on Friday, Sept. 11, beginning at 7:30 p.m. at FHS Stadium.

Head coach Lance Moffett hopes Fredericksburg can ride its 2-0 hot streak to a strong performance against the Bulldogs.

“We have some momentum and confidence going into playing a team like Burnet,” Moffett said. “You want to ride the positivity of being 2-0 and progressing each week. But it’s a rivalry game and it’s homecoming.

“We haven’t beat Burnet since I’ve been here. We’ve played them close three times and last year they embarrassed us.”
