By Lisa Treiber-Walter —

Fredericksburg High School’s girls’ and boys’ golf teams won twin fifth places in the University Interscholastic League (UIL) State 3A Golf Tournament.

Both teams did an “outstanding” job over the two-day contest held Monday and Tuesday, April 28-29, at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort course in Bastrop, according to FHS Coach Janie Guynes.

“I’m very proud of both of these teams,” she said once the final holes were complete last night.

While the Billie squads both won regional championships for the first time in the FHS program’s history back on April 15 in Corpus Christi, the state course posed a tougher challenge for the FHS shooters.

“It’s long and there were just more hazards and very tough greens. The greens were extremely fast,” Guynes said.

Longhorns defeat Ozona 5-3; fail to make baseball playoffs

By Danny Hirt —

Despite beating Ozona at home April 22 by a 5-3 score in the season finale for both schools, the Harper High School varsity baseball team finds itself out of the playoff picture.

The Longhorns (6-4, 12-10) ended the 2014 campaign tied with Mason for third place, but Mason will advance because it holds the tie-breaker edge over Harper (only the district’s top three teams make it to the post-season action).

The thunderbolt that is a state championship struck Heritage School twice last week as the Eagles and Lady Eagles tennis teams won TAPPS 1A titles during tournament action held at the Regional Tennis Center in Waco on Wednesday and Thursday.

It was a noteworthy experience for the netters on more than one level. Not only did the girls’ team repeat as state champions, but the boys’ squad also picked up a top trophy for the first time in school history. And the icing on the cake was the play of the girls’ doubles team of Christina Harpold and Sydney Richburg who captured their third consecutive state championship.

In all, there were 18 girls’ schools and 19 boys’ schools participating in last week’s championship action.
