Harper softball bests D'Hanis, 11-1

By Danny Hirt

 

The weatherman sure messed up Harper High School’s varsity softball schedule.

While the Ladyhorns were able to get in a game on Tuesday, April 14 (an 11-1 home win over D’Hanis in five innings), other contests were postponed due to rainy conditions and rescheduled.

Last Friday’s game at Center Point was moved to tonight (Wednesday) at 4:30 p.m. And Monday’s encounter was bounced to last night; results were not known by press time.

This Friday’s games with Sabinal (JV at 4:30 p.m., varsity at 6 p.m.) are still on schedule, weather permitting, of course.

 

Harper 11, D’Hanis 1

The Ladyhorns picked up their 11th District 29-2A victory on April 14, topping D’Hanis, at home, 11-1, in a game ended after five innings under the mercy run rule.

Billie boys soccer season ends in regional finals

By Joshua McKinney

Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ soccer made a deep run into the postseason before its season came to an end Saturday.

The Billies lost to the Liberty Hill Panthers, 5-4, Saturday in the Region IV-4A UIL Championship played at Mission.

It was Fredericksburg’s third game in five days after beating Bandera, 2-1, last Tuesday night in the regional quarterfinals and Hidalgo, 1-0, Friday, in the regional semifinals.

A regional finals exit was not what the Billies had in mind for their trip to South Texas but it was still an unforgettable season for FHS soccer, which won the District 28-4A Championship and made it the regional finals for the second time in five years.
