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.”

Billies fall at La Grange 34-7

By Matt Ward

An early two-touchdown deficit without starting quarterback Kyle Grona proved to be too much for the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team as the Billies fell to 4A’s top program La Grange, 34-7, Friday.

“The score isn’t indicative of us getting rolled by them,” FHS head coach Lance Moffett said. “There were times when we had opportunities to get back in the game and I’m very proud of our performance in regard to that with a backup quarterback who had taken less than 20 percent of the (practice) reps.”

Grona suffered a game-ending injury early in the first quarter, making way for backup Kyle Reeh, who ran for 74 yards and completed seven of 17 passes for 113 yards.

Win over Hondo

Last night, Fredericksburg defeated Hondo on the road 25-16, 20-25, 25-13, 25-18 in a match Roemer called “not the prettiest of wins.

Netters split pair on Saturday

By Austin R. Eck

Fredericksburg High School varsity tennis split their two Saturday matches with a win against Mason, but lost to Abilene-Wylie, the first-ranked 4A team.

The second-ranked FHS Billies started the day with a 10-3 (16-3) loss to Abilene-Wylie. 

“They are very strong, and our kids gave 100 percent,” head coach Randall King said about the Abilene-Wylie match.

Fredericksburg failed to seize its opportunities in doubles’ play to be in a position to win the match in singles’ play.

Fredericksburg only managed one win in doubles play, which left the Billies with a difficult challenge in singles play, King said.

Fredericksburg played a second match against Mason in the afternoon, winning 10-5 (11-8).

“We were a little deflated emotionally after pouring so much into the Wylie match,” King said, “but the Mason kids are always competitive and give their best.”
