Sitting at 1-3 after four District 27-3A contests, the Fredericksburg High School varsity baseball team will host Bandera Friday and Canyon Lake Tuesday. First pitch in both games is slated for 7 p.m.

The Billies fell on the road to Wimberley 11-1 Tuesday night.

“We are struggling at the plate. Once again, we left too many runners on base,” head coach Derrick Dietrich said. “We had our chances the first three innings to scratch a run or two across but couldn’t get it done. We are getting people on base but that does us no good if we can’t get them across the plate.”

Fredericksburg High School varsity girls’ soccer’s hopes for both a playoff berth and to continue head coach John Brock’s coaching career came to an end on March 7, when they lost their final District 54-4A contest at home to Alamo Heights in a shutout, 4-0.

The junior varsity team also lost to Alamo Heights, 6-0, to close out their season.

Brock is coaching his final year at Fredericksburg and plans to retire.

The varsity team’s final game of the season will be on Tuesday, March 18, on the road at Medina Valley. That game begins at 5 p.m.

In their final district contest, the Billies fell to Alamo Heights 4-0 Friday.

An FHS win would have forced a playoff play-in game against Kerrville Tivy.

Fredericksburg is 9-12-1 on the season and 0-7-1 in district.

Of the five teams in district, only four advance to the playoffs. Those four will be Alamo Heights, Boerne Champion, Boerne and Tivy.

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.
