Fredericksburg High School’s varsity boys’ soccer team is guaranteed District 28-4A’s top seed going into the playoffs after defeating Wimberley, 5-1, on Friday, March 13.

With one Billie win or a Greyhound loss in the final two games of the season, FHS (13-5, 10-0) will earn the outright District 28-4A championship.

Fredericksburg’s first chance to seal a district championship will be Wednesday, March 18, at 7 p.m. in Canyon Lake. To close out the district schedule, FHS plays Boerne at 7 p.m., Friday, March 20, in Fredericksburg.

The Billies received a bye week during the bi-district round of the playoffs. FHS will play in the area round as its first playoff game in early April.

Fredericksburg and the other District 28-4A playoff teams advance to the area round of the playoffs because the University Interscholastic League did not form a District 27-4A this season.
