Harper wins one, loses one in baseball action

By Danny Hirt

 

The Longhorns from Harper High School split their two District 29-2A baseball games during the past week, starting with April 12’s 4-0 victory at Eldorado and ending with an 11-1 home loss to Johnson City.

The Longhorns currently have a strong hold on third place in the district standings (and, therefore, have a chance to secure a post-season playoff position) behind league-leading Johnson City and second-place Center Point.

The end of the regular season is just around the corner, with Harper entertaining Ozona at 7 p.m. Friday, April 22 (junior varsity at 4:30 p.m.) and traveling to Mason on April 26.

Results of Tuesday night’s non-district game with visiting Charlotte were not known as of this week’s press deadline.

FHS varsity tennis dominates district meet

 

By Scott Allen

 

Fredericksburg High School’s varsity tennis team competed in the District 29-4A meet on Wednesday and Thursday, April 6-7, in Hondo and set a school record in the process.

“District results surpassed anything in recent history of the tennis program,” head coach Randall King said. “My memory is that FHS has never qualified more than nine athletes for the individual regional meet, and we were able to qualify 12 this year. This is a great representation of FHS athletics. The kids worked very hard to complete the spring season and move into the playoffs.”

The Billies medaled in every single bracket, including a clean sweep with first places finishes in four categories.

FHS hurlers shut down Hondo Owls, 8-2 on road

 

By Richard Zowie

 

Billie pitchers Ryan Segner and TJ Tomlinson combined for three hits and no earned runs, along with nine strikeouts, to help Fredericksburg High School varsity baseball improve to 12-8-1 with their 8-2 win April 8 on the road against Hondo.

The Billies are now 3-2 in District 29-4A.

Segner pitched six innings and allowed two hits and struck out seven Owls. In relief, Tomlinson pitched an inning and struck out two.

“Segner threw very well,” said Coach Derrick Dietrich. “He was in command all game. Tomlinson came in and threw well. Our pitching, for the most part, has been very good all year. We have the arms to get people out. The defense has let us down a couple of times, but I feel very confident with any pitcher we put on the bump.”

Segner and Remington Neffendorf also doubled for the Billies as Blake Moffett drove in two runs. Neffendorf scored two runs.
