Volleyball Defeats Llano On Road

By Matt Ward —

 

After a 2-6 performance at the Smithson Valley tournament over the weekend, the Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball team got back on the winning track with a four-set victory at Llano Tuesday evening.

Fredericksburg will host Lampasas Friday evening and Liberty Hill Tuesday night for Parents’ Night. Both contests are slated to begin at 6 p.m.

“Considering the injuries we’ve had and the inexperience we’ve had in the line ups, coupled with the tough schedule we’ve been playing,” Fredericksburg head coach Jason Roemer said Tuesday, “I like the direction we’re headed. I told them tonight after the game that the season is a journey full of ups and downs and it’s about getting up after getting knocked down.” 

 

Win over Llano

Last night, the Billies defeated Llano on the road 23-25, 25-18, 25-12, 25-14 to improve to 13-13 on the season.

The Billies will serve up 8 a.m. matches against Wimberley and 1 p.m. matches against Boerne on their home courts in this first team tennis season under the auspices of the University Interscholastic League (UIL) after it has been transferred from the care of the Texas Tennis Coaches Association.

Despite giving up an early touchdown on a blocked punt to host Grape Creek, the Harper Longhorns managed to take the lead in the second period on the strength of two Jayden Baumann TD runs on the way to a 34-14 win Friday night in San Angelo.

Harper cross country to open season Saturday

By Danny Hirt —

 

With the Harper High School cross country schedule opening up Saturday in San Angelo at the annual “ASU Stampede” event held on the campus of Angelo State University, head coach Will Reid knows his teams will provide a mixed bag on the season.

There’ll be a lot of experience on the girls’ side (six of seven members of last year’s state UIL 1A runner-up team that also captured a district title) while the boys’ squad has only one senior but plenty of “state experience,” as the coach calls it.

The “problem” with the half-dozen returning girls is that his 2012 number one runner, Crystal Schlueter, has graduated and is now running for Angelo State University. But the remaining girls from last year — seniors Kayla Inmon, Taylor Reid and Hope Dillon, juniors Sydney Collins, and sophomores Rebekah Lester and Payton Reid — give Coach Reid reason to be optimistic.
