The Fredericksburg High School varsity girls’ basketball team earned its first win of the season last night with its 52-50 finish over La Vernia.
Next for the Billies is the New Braunfels Tournament, which starts Thursday, Dec. 4, and continues through Saturday, Dec. 6.
After the tournament, FHS will host Wimberley at 6:30 p.m., Dec. 9. It is the Billies first home game since the season opener against Kerrville Tivy.
On Tuesday, Fredericksburg started the game off on a high note outscoring La Vernia 15-9 in the first quarter, and holding the Bears to 18 points in the first half.
After halftime, La Vernia came out looking to cut into the deficit.
“We had a 12 point lead at one point in the second half, and started to do what we have done in the last three games by just giving them the game,” head coach Carrie Grona said.
