Netters best Wimberley, Tivy

 

By Austin R. Eck

 

The Fredericksburg High School varsity tennis team bounced back from  a loss to New Braunfels High School with two wins later in the week.

Fredericksburg went on the road on Tuesday (Sept. 30) to match up against New Braunfels High School, the second-ranked 6A team in the state.

The Billies lost 10-1 in New Braunfels, but head coach Randall King is hoping that the Billies benefitted from the experience.

“Our kids played with a lot of heart and determination,” he said. “This type of competition only makes us better down the road. To be the best, you have to learn to compete with the best, and I think we can compete with them.”

The Billies continued their week with a Saturday morning match against Wimberley in Fredericksburg.

Runners sweep competition at Mason Invitational Oct. 1

By Austin R. Eck

 

Fredericksburg High School completed the sweep at the Mason Invitational on Wednesday, Oct. 1, by winning all three divisions at the cross country meet.

The Battlin’ Billies quickly shifted their focus from last week’s sweep to their next meet in Lampasas.

At the Lampasas Invitational, the Billies will face the stiffest competition the region has to offer.

“This will be an opportunity for us to evaluate our team against the top three teams coming from District 26 that will most likely be at the regional meet,” head coach Dan Aldrich said about facing Liberty Hill, Burnet and Salado on Thursday.

Due to UIL realignment last year, Fredericksburg competes in the same region as those three schools. Liberty Hill and Salado went to the state meet last year, and Burnet won the Fredericksburg Invitational on Sept. 27.

Punchers pound Longhorns in lopsided 52-7 contest Friday

By Danny Hirt

 

Harper ran into a perennial buzz-saw at home Friday night — District 14-2A Division I opponent Mason — and ended up on the short side of a 52-7 score in football action.

The Longhorns (0-2, 2-4) will travel to league opponent Sabinal (0-1, 3-2) Friday evening in a contest that will kick off at 7:30 p.m. After that, Harper will be off until Oct. 24 when they will entertain Center Point for homecoming.

 

Mason 52, Harper 7

The Mason Punchers (2-0, 6-0) controlled the tone of the action from opening kick to the final whistle, grinding out 308 rushing yards on 34 carries with an additional 76 yards on a 9-of-11 passing effort thrown in for good measure.

Harper didn’t score until late in the third period when quarterback Gus Sagraves completed a pass to his brother, Josh, that covered 20 yards. At that point, the Longhorns trailed 45-7.

Heritage to face district rival Seguin Lifegate Friday

By Danny Hirt

 

Despite scoring first in last Friday’s six-man football game at Rochelle, Heritage ended up losing by a 36-32 margin in non-district action.

Although they lost, the Eagles (3-3) remained in first place in the sixmanfootball.com poll for TAPPS Division III schools. With its 52-6 win over Prairie Lea, Heritage’s long-time rival Seguin Lifegate (4-2) moved up to the number two spot in the same rankings.

As luck would have it, the Eagles travel to Lifegate this Friday for a 7:30 p.m. district opener for both schools.

 

Rochelle 36, Heritage 32

Like two heavyweight boxers slugging it out, Heritage and Rochelle went toe-to-toe for most of the first two rounds (quarters) until the host Hornets stung the Eagle defense for three touchdowns in the late first  and early second halves to take a 36-16 lead on their way to a 36-32 victory.

Billies targets for Bulldogs in district opener Friday

By Matt Ward

 

Fredericksburg is now the hunted and no longer the hunter.

After years of clawing their way up the standings, the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team (3-2) finds themselves in unfamiliar territory as the Billies prepare to defend their district title for the first time Friday at FHS Stadium against upstart Bandera.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

The Bulldogs (3-1) are off to their best start in five seasons under head coach David Sine, a riverboat gambler-style coach who will try to out-scheme FHS head coach Lance Moffett.

“There’s a lot of positivity going on over there and he’s going to sell this as a huge opportunity,” Moffett said. “I think he’s always used us as a measuring stick for his program. I know he circled this date on his calendar once realignment came out. Their mindset is that this is the year they will knock us off.”

The Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ cross country team finished in first place at the Fredericksburg Invitational at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park on Saturday.

The first place finish was an improvement on the UTSA Ricardo Romo Cross Country Classic when the boys finished fourth overall, but finished behind two district teams.

On Saturday, the Billies were able to record a better time than Bandera, one of the teams to best Fredericksburg at UTSA’s meet.

“Bandera and Boerne both beat our boys’ team, which allowed the boys to evaluate what they must do to succeed in a few weeks at district,” head coach Dan Aldrich said. “Today, our team ran very well as a group and was able to see the progress they had in just one week by beating our district opponent today.”
