Volleyball falls to second-ranked Wimberley

By Matt Ward —

 

With a road win over Geronimo Navarro on Friday, the Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball team can clinch second place in District 27-3A after the Billies split a pair of games last week.

FHS will travel to Navarro for a 6 p.m. match Friday before hosting Canyon Lake for Senior Night Tuesday at 7 p.m.

Last night, the 23rd-ranked Billies fell to second-ranked Wimberley 24-26, 19-25, 17-25 after taking a 25-21, 25-21, 21-25, 25-15 win over Boerne Friday evening.

“For the last six years we’ve been blessed with really balanced teams with lots of good players and this team is no different,” Roemer said. “It’s no secret this year we are going to set the middle’s every chance we get and teams are going to set their defenses accordingly, especially the second half of the district race.”

Netters to face Abilene Wylie

One final “tune-up” remains — and, a doozy at that since it will be against last year’s state team tennis champs — before the Fredericksburg High School (FHS) varsity tennis team can focus on region play.

The Class 3A regional team tennis tournament will, according to FHS Coach Randall King, pit the Billie netters against some of the state’s toughest teams on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 1-2, in San Marcos.

But first, the local athletes will meet up with Abilene Wylie, the defending champions in 3A team tennis last year, when the sport still fell under the auspices of the Texas Tennis Coaches Association.

“Wylie is always a very talent and strong team,” King said. “Our kids seem to rise to the occasion and play them very tough each time out, though.”

On the heels of a 10-0 shut-out over Copperas Cove last Thursday in Llano, King said work will be done this week to prepare for both upcoming battles.

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.

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.
