FHS boys soccer falls short in bid for playoff berth

By Lisa Treiber-Walter —

They may not have made the playoffs, but this year’s Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ soccer team can stand proud.

“The kids gave everything they had this year and I am proud to have gone through this season with them,” said FHS Coach Shannon Petsch.

The Billies finished District 54-4A play on Friday, March 8, with a win-loss-tie count of 1-7-0 and an overall season record of 5-12-2.

Fredericksburg closed out its loop contention Friday night with a 4-0 loss at Alamo Heights in San Antonio, and yet the Billies still have something to work toward in the next week.

“We will play one more game after Spring Break before our season is completely over,” Petsch said.

Fredericksburg netters win title at Clemens/Steele

By Lisa Treiber-Walter —

Proving they can dominate in unfamiliar territory, the Fredericksburg High School varsity tennis team ousted seven other schools to take the team trophy in their first appearance in the Clemens/Steele Spring Invitational over the weekend.

The Billie netters mustered 102 points overall to lead over North Crowley (85 points), Brandeis (79), Brownsville Hanna (71), San Marcos (70), Steele (67), Clemens (65) and Corpus Christi King (55).

Playing in less-than-tennis-like weather, with cold and wet windy conditions, the Fredericksburg’s girls’ doubles team of Grace Igarta and Myra Powell won their draw.

Next up, the squad will take a rest over Spring Break and most of the week after in order to prepare to host the Hill Country Championships on home courts Thursday through Saturday, March 20-22.

Fredericksburg baseball splits pair of district contests

Splitting their first two District 27-3A contests, the Fredericksburg High School varsity baseball team will travel to Navarro Friday for a 1 p.m. first pitch before heading to Wimberley Tuesday at 7 p.m.

The Billies fell at home to Boerne last night 11-0 after defeating Canyon Lake 7-4 on March 5.

Boerne 11, FHS 0

Last night, the Billies fell at home to Boerne 11-0.

“We faced a very good Boerne team tonight and we just couldn't get anything going at the plate,” head coach Derrick Dietrich said. “We only struck out three times which was a positive. We have had trouble putting the ball in play in previous games. We were able to get the bat on the ball for the most part but couldn't get the hits when we needed them.”

“This weekend was an absolutely wonderful experience for these girls and one that they will remember forever,” said Heritage head coach Mike McKinnon.

FHS track to compete in Lampasas

After a successful meet in Burnet last week, Fredericksburg High School track teams will head back on the road on Friday to compete in the Lampasas Badger Relays.

The meet will begin with the 3200 meter run and field events at 2:30 p.m. before the running finals begin at 5 p.m.

Last Friday, the Billie varsity and JV girls both finished second at the Wells Fargo Burnet Relays, while the varsity boys placed fourth and JV boys finished fifth.

“As our first regular formatted meet invitational of the year, I was pleased with how the kids performed, to give them a starting point to work from,” head coach Dan Aldrich said. “We are by no means even close to where we want to be, but I also understand patience is just as important from the coach as it is from the kids when working through our workout progression.”

Girls' soccer ties Tivy 0-0

The good news about Fredericksburg High School’s Feb. 28 varsity girls soccer game against Kerrville Tivy is that neither the varsity nor junior varsity squads allowed any goals.

The varsity also didn’t score any, as their game ended in a 0-0 tie. JV scored one goal for a 1-0 shutout over the Lady Antlers.

The tie means that FHS will now have to defeat Boerne Champion or Alamo Heights to have a chance at the playoffs.

FHS girls soccer’s next games will be today, March 5, at Boerne Champion (a rescheduled game due to weather) with the JV team playing at 5 p.m. and the varsity playing at 7 p.m. Then, on Friday, March 7, FHS is at home against Alamo Heights (JV at 5 p.m., and varsity at 7 p.m.).
