FHS girls go 1-5 in home tourney

The Fredericksburg High School varsity girls’ basketball team went 1-5 in the Fredericksburg tournament played Thursday through Saturday, Dec. 10-12.

“We are plagued with injuries right now. We played all six games without three of our starters,” head coach Carrie Grona said. 

“We were just focused on surviving without getting anyone else hurt.”

The girls went 1-1 on the first day of the tournament when they beat Marion, 45-42, and lost to Burnet, 54-38. They lost both games the second day, 38-32 to Savio and 51-35 to the Mason Punchers.

On Saturday, the girls fell in their last two games of the tournament, 69-60, against Smithville, and 47-46 against Laredo Martin.

“We went 1-5, but lost four close games and I was pleased how well we played without some key players,” Grona said. 

“Our younger players really stepped up this past weekend.  We just need to focus more on execution, rebounding and FT’s.”

FHS boys take out Llano

FHS boys’ varsity hoops 9-6 after win over Llano

 

The Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ basketball team is now 9-6 after an 81-50 victory over Llano on Monday, Dec. 14.

Head coach Tim Kaman said the team played with energy and was all-around balanced.

“We really rotated around the floor and anticipated well,” Kaman said. “It really helped our press, which gave us some easy baskets.  Throw in the fact that we hit 13 threes tonight, and the team is going to be successful.”

Prior to the Llano game, the Billies went 1-3 at the Canyon Lake Tournament this past weekend, losing to Blanco, Lockhart and Cornerstone Christian. They beat Canyon Lake at the tournament.

Kaman said a lot of games in a short amount of time has worn down the team.
