No. 2 spot in district race is up for grabs

Heading into Tuesday night’s game against Boerne, the Fredericksburg High School softball team is in a three-way tie for second place in District 29-4A competition.

FHS boys' soccer loses in regional quarterfinals

By Scott Allen

 

Losing a tough 3-1 match in the regional quarterfinal for Region 4 against Giddings, the Fredericksburg High School boys’ varsity soccer team’s season has come to an end.

The game was played last Tuesday, April 5 as the Billies represented the winner of District 28-4A. Head coach Shannon Petsch said it just wasn’t the Billies’ night.

“We started out slow and gave them a 2-0 lead, but managed to bounce back and make it a game. We were doing everything right but get the ball in the back of the net,” Petsch said. “If we got it past the goalie, a defender would be there to clear the ball out. We had four shots that on a normal night would be goals but their goalie was huge Tuesday night. When it is not your night, there is nothing that can be done.”

Overall, Petsch said he was happy with the Billies’ successful season.

On Friday, April 1, the Billies pushed past Salado, 3-1, in the area round of the playoffs.

“The players played really aggressive against Salado on Friday and played like they really wanted to win,” Petsch said. “We scored two in the first half while holding them to zero. The second half, we kept the pressure on and scored our third goal.”

Billies compete at Bandera, finish third in standings

Facing “quality competition,” the Fredericksburg High School varsity and junior varsity boys’ track teams both finished in the top three in the standings at the Bandera Bulldog Late Season Relays on Saturday.

“Both the JV and varsity performed very well against some quality competition,” Coach Shane Willis said.

Twenty-five teams competed at the meet where the varsity boys finished third and the JV boys were second.

“The Bandera meet was set up a little different than we are used to, with prelims in the running events happening in the morning and then the finals run in the afternoon,” Willis said, “I was pleased with the way the boys handled the extra races.”

“Our conditioning was put to the test this track meet and we definitely passed the test,” the coach said.

And after competing in the last full track meet of the season, the Billies will now compete in the AJ Loth Dual Relays with Kerrville Tivy High School tomorrow, Thursday, April 7.
