Girls' soccer falls to Wimberley

The Fredericksburg High School varsity girls’ soccer team (7-3-2, 1-1-0 district) dropped their first loss to Class 4A competition on Friday, falling at Wimberley, 3-1.

Results from last night’s home contest against Canyon Lake were unavailable as of press time.

FHS will host Boerne, Friday, before travelling to Bandera, Tuesday night. Both games are slated to begin at 7 p.m.

Against Wimberley, the Billies dropped their first District 28-4A contest with a 3-1 loss at the Texans.

“We came out with a fast start and really looked to take a quick lead; however, Wimberley’s defense held strong and played extremely physical soccer,” head coach Logan Minshew said. “Our attacking momentum began to drop off a bit and Wimberley started to swing the momentum in their favor. Their very talented center midfielder took a shot from a good distance that, unfortunately, took a favorable bounce for Wimberley and we couldn’t find an answer by halftime.”

Harper girls miss postseason

By Danny Hirt

With last Tuesday’s 47-31 loss at Center Point, the Harper High School varsity girls’ basketball team was knocked out of any chance of making the post-season playoffs.

Last night’s game at San Saba was the season finale for the Ladyhorns. Results from that contest were not known by this week’s press deadline.

In all likelihood, San Saba will earn the District 27-2A regular season championship and receive the league’s number one position in the upcoming playoffs. Mason should finish second, with Center Point in third.

Harper 61, Johnson City 39

Logan White and Macie Lumpkins combined for 41 points — 21 and 20, respectively — in Harper’s 61-39 win over the visiting Lady Eagles from Johnson City.

White also hauled in a team-high 12 rebounds.

First-year Billies advance to Region VII-5A meet

By Matt Ward

 

Eight athletes and two alternates will represent Fredericksburg High School swimming at regional competition following a successful debut at the District 28-5A meet Saturday at Palo Alto College in San Antonio.

“This premier season of swimming has been one of many time trials, early morning water works (practices), and lessons in flexibility (starts, turns, strokes),” head coach Lisa Bullion said. “All of these obstacles provided our team a chance to grow, to learn and to bond.  I couldn’t be prouder of the team. We may have entered the season late, but are certainly finishing it strong!”

A first year swim program, Fredericksburg will compete at the Region VII-5A meet held at the Victoria Aquatics Center in Victoria Friday and Saturday.
