The last time the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team earned a playoff berth in 2007, they defeated the Boerne Greyhounds at home to do it.

On Friday, Fredericksburg can nearly lock up their first postseason appearance in six years with a win over their longtime rival as the Billies host the Greyhounds, Friday at 7:30 p.m., at FHS Stadium.

FHS will also host the rescheduled Parents’ Night recognition ceremony prior to kickoff Friday. Parents are asked to arrive at the west end of the stadium at 6:35 p.m., with the ceremony to begin at 6:45 p.m.

Additionally, Friday’s game will also serve as Youth Football Night.

Billies defeat Canyon Lake for first district win

By Matt Ward —

 

Four years have passed since the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team has defeated a district opponent other than Bandera.

Until Friday.

With their 38-14 road win over Canyon Lake to open District 27-3A play, the Billies (5-1, 1-0 district) finally “got the monkey off our back,” FHS head coach Lance Moffett said Monday.

“It was the biggest win since we’ve been here just because of the nature of it,” he said. “From a whole program and community standpoint, it was a huge victory. Now let’s go see what we can really do.”

 

Quick start

Facing perhaps the most physically imposing team they have played so far this season, the Billies began Friday’s district opener on fire as the FHS defense forced a pair of three-and-outs to set up back-to-back touchdowns.

Volleyball improves to 5-1 in district

By Matt Ward —

 

With a pair of victories last week, the 21st-ranked Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball team improved to 5-1 in district play before back-to-back home games this week.

FHS jumped 10 spots in Class 3A rankings in the Texas Girls’ Coaches Association poll, up from 31st last week.

Last night, the Billies defeated Bandera, in a road game, 25-14, 17-25, 25-18, 25-14, after sweeping Canyon Lake 25-23, 25-14, 25-22 on the road Friday night.

FHS will host Boerne Friday at 6 p.m. before playing host to second-ranked Wimberley Tuesday night at 7 p.m.

“Our kids are not satisfied with being 5-1 at this point in the season,” Fredericksburg head coach Jason Roemer said. “We have a tough week in front of us and we all know that Boerne is going to be gunning for us after we walked out of their gym two weeks ago with a five set win.”

Netters win district championship

Having already earned the District 27-3A title, the Fredericksburg High School varsity tennis team has two more teams to face as it sharpens up for the UIL Region IV Tennis Tournament Nov. 1-2 in San Marcos.

Tomorrow, Oct. 17, the Billie netters will face — weather permitting — the Class 5A Copperas Cove Bulldawgs at 4 p.m. at the Llano High School courts, in Llano. That match is an attempted makeup after Tuesday’s originally-scheduled meeting was postponed due to rain storms.

After that outing, FHS’ squad will take a short reprieve to rest up in a week-long break before facing Abilene Wylie across the nets at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26, at Mason High School.

Should Fredericksburg place well in the regional tournament Nov. 1-2, they will advance to the UIL State Team Tennis Tournament slated Friday and Saturday, Nov. 8-9, in Abilene.

Most recently, last Saturday, Oct. 12, the Billies downed Mason 10-0 (17-2) in a home match.

Cross country to run at district meet Oct. 23

By Richard Zowie —

 

Even with what Fredericksburg High School cross country coach Dan Aldrich described as a tough upcoming district battle for his team, chances are he found some encouragement from the team’s final regular-season meet of the year.

At the Thursday, Oct. 10 Lampasas Cross Country Invitational, FHS had seven total top-15 finishers in both varsity (including Clarissa Sanchez’ first-place finish in girls varsity). In junior varsity, nine runners finished in the top 15.

Those who finished in the top 15 earned medals.

The Billies also had two overall first-place finishes (varsity girls and JV Red boys) and two second-place finishes (JV girls and varsity boys).

For Fredericksburg, its lowest-finishing team was the JV White boys, which took fourth.
