By Danny Hirt —

 

Harper placed three runners in the top five to storm its way to first place in the 1-A varsity girls’ division of the Richard Romo Cross Country Classic held Saturday, Sept. 21, on the campus of the University of Texas at San Antonio.

The Ladyhorns won their division at last year’s meet, as well.

Sydney Collins clocked in at 13:20 for third place, with Hope Dillon coming in fourth (13:25) and Payton Reid taking fifth (13:27).

Meanwhile, the boys’ team took sixth place, with Drew Stracke taking 10th position in a time of 19:08.

“There were a lot of positives and momentum built as we head toward the end of September,” said HHS head coach Will Reid.

The Longhorn squads will participate in action Saturday, Sept. 28, at Fredericksburg High School.

Heritage football falls to Castle Hills

By Danny Hirt —

 

Despite jumping out to a 20-8 first quarter lead, Heritage School could not contain visiting San Antonio Castle Hills in the middle periods and ended up losing Friday’s TAPPS District 4-1A six-man football contest by a 41-27 margin.

The game was the first league encounter for both schools.

The Eagles will end their season-opening five-game home-stand Friday, Sept. 27 when they host San Marcos Hill Country Christian School at 7:30 p.m. Following that, Heritage will hit the road for three consecutive dates, enjoy an open date, followed by a home game with Seguin Lifegate on Nov. 1, then end the regular season at San Antonio Believers on Nov. 8.

After a physical war last year which included multiple ejections and a critical quote from the opposing coach, the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team will have to be ready for anything as they host the Lampasas Badgers for Parents’ Night Friday at 7:30 p.m. at FHS Stadium.

The Billies, who defeated the Badgers 22-19 on the road last season, will face a Lampasas squad with a new head coach looking to rebound from a 1-9 finish in 2012.

“That was kind of our keynote win last year, to go on the road to Lampasas in a tough environment against a team who had been 10-2 the year before, and win,” FHS head coach Lance Moffett said Monday. “They’re a good team who’s lost to some good teams. Their record doesn’t reflect who they are as a program.”

Lampasas opened the 2013 season with a 47-6 win over Smithville before losing consecutive games to Austin Travis 55-28 and Lorena 35-6.

Billie football topples Brady in road win

By Matt Ward —

 

For Fredericksburg High School varsity football coach Lance Moffett, there’s only one question he’s sick of answering: “What did you say to the kids at halftime?”

After a lack-luster first half saw the Billies tied at Brady 6-6, FHS scored 28 unanswered points in the second half to cruise to a 34-6 road victory Friday night.

“I’m real pleased with the way we finished. I wanted to score a lot more points though,” Moffett said after the game. “If we just put all three phases of the game together (at the same time), we’ll be a great team.”

 

First half woes

Looking at the first half from a statistical perspective, the Billie head coach said his squad should have been way ahead of Brady after dominating total offensive yards 240-78.

Volleyball sweeps Burnet Tuesday

By Matt Ward —

 

Only two matches remain before the Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball team opens district play at home on Sept. 27 against Bandera.

“We have two tough matches (this week) against New Braunfels Canyon and Smithson Valley,” FHS head coach Jason Roemer said. “Both will be good tests and both will make us play fast and big — the way we will have to play if we expect to compete for a district championship.”

FHS will travel to New Braunfels Canyon Friday at 6 p.m. before hitting the road again Tuesday for a 6:30 p.m. contest at Smithson Valley.

Last night, the Billies swept Burnet on the road 25-17, 25-21, 25-12.

“We seemed a little rusty from having Friday night off last week,” Roemer said. “It had been seven days since we played and it showed a little.”

Runners fare well at Harper meet

By Richard Zowie —

 

Fredericksburg High School’s boys and girls varsity cross country teams took first and second place, respectively, Sept. 14 at the Jacob Krebs Cross Country Invitational in Harper, which was renamed to honor the former Longhorn runner who died April 1.

The FHS boys cross country team then received their trophy for winning the event, but did something unusual with it.

Instead of the trophy being displayed for years to come at the FHS athletics trophy display, the entire cross country team signed the trophy and returned it to the Krebs family.

The trophy and invitational are named in memory of Krebs, a Harper runner who died April 1 in a drowning accident. Krebs had enlisted in the Navy and was training to eventually enter the Navy SEAL program.

Netters to face trio of foes this week

Fredericksburg High School’s varsity tennis team is looking to shake off yesterday’s rained out home match against Kerrville Tivy as it heads into three more meets this week, including another run at the Antlers.

On Saturday, Sept. 21, the Billies will host a potential regional team tennis opponent, Hondo, at 8:30 a.m. and then a match against Class-4A Floresville at 1:30 p.m. at the HEB Tennis Center on the FHS campus.

Then, on Tuesday, Sept. 24, Fredericksburg will get another chance to finish off Tivy in a 4 p.m. match at the HEB Tennis Center in Kerrville.

Yesterday afternoon, FHS was on top of the Antlers, 9-5, with five matches still on the court to finish before rain showers forced cancellation for the day around 7:30 p.m.

Kerrville “always matches up very well with us,” said FHS Coach Randall King.

On Saturday, the Billies took two solid wins over Class-5A Cibolo Steele, 10-0 (19-0) and then over Class-4A Schertz Clemens, 10-1 (16-3.)

Harper football falls to Ingram

By Danny Hirt —

 

After falling behind early, Harper spent the rest of the night in an unsuccessful bid to catch up as it dropped a 35-33 decision to visiting Ingram last Friday night in high school football action.

Even a 26-7 fourth quarter surge by the Longhorns could not completely cover an earlier deficit.

Harper (2-1) will try to return to its winning ways Friday, Sept. 20, when the ’Horns travel to Sonora. Kick-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

 

Ingram 35, Harper 33

In a game that saw both teams totaling 335 yards in penalties on 35 flags, the Longhorns simply could not get their rhythm flowing as they saw Ingram’s Omar Renteria bull his way over from one and three yards out in the opening period to give the Warriors a 14-0 lead.
