Billies travel to Canyon Lake for district football opener

By Matt Ward —

 

It doesn’t matter to Fredericksburg High School varsity football head coach Lance Moffett that his opponent, Canyon Lake, is 0-5 heading into the District 27-3A opener for both schools Friday.

Being 1-4 concerns him much more.

In each of his first two seasons leading the Battlin’ Billies, FHS has gone 1-4 in district play, defeating Bandera twice while losing to every other loop opponent both times.

Fredericksburg, who travels to Canyon Lake for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff, also sports a 1-4 all-time record against the Hawks with their lone win coming in Canyon Lake’s first varsity season in 2008.

“It’s our challenge to know that they kind of own us and if we are better than them, let’s go prove it,” Moffett said Monday. “They’re an ominous opponent and they scare me a little bit because they’re hungry.”

Runners compete at McNeil

By Richard Zowie —

 

It was a busy Saturday for Fredericksburg High School cross country as the teams split and competed in two different places.

Varsity boys and junior varsity boys, along with JV girls, competed in the Comfort Cross Country Invitational. Then, at the Round Rock McNeil Cross Country Invitational in Round Rock, a team of FHS varsity girls and boys competed.

“Our top 10 runners went to McNeil in Round Rock to run on what is expected to be the new state meet course,” said cross country head coach Dan Aldrich. “The McNeil meet has always attracted many schools because of the course layout and central Texas location. Because of this, the race divisions have grown too big for many kids to compete well at.”

At McNeil, the varsity boys finished 10th while the varsity girls finished 18th.
