FHS baseball downs Lytle, evens loop mark

 

By Richard Zowie

 

Fredericksburg High School varsity baseball continued its winning ways, and Riggs Threadgill continued his dominance on the mound as the Billies defeated Lytle, on the road, 10-3, March 24.

Prior to the Lytle game, the Billies were defeated by Boerne, 6-0, on March 22.

The Billies are now 10-7-1 overall and 1-1 in district.

Threadgill pitched six innings in Lytle, giving up two hits and one unearned run while walking one and striking out two.

“Riggs threw pretty well versus Lytle,” said Coach Derrick Dietrich. “We would like him to be more efficient with his pitch count, but he threw well. When he can throw his changeup and breaking balls for strikes, he makes it hard on hitters to get in any sort of rhythm at the plate.”

Threadgill also homered and drove in two runs.

FHS girls' track team eyes Bandera, Texas Relays next

Facing “impressive” competition, the Fredericksburg High School varsity and junior varsity girls’ track teams competed in the Marble Falls Daybreak Rotary Mustang Relays last Thursday.

“It was an impressive competitive field as we watched three meet records in all the relays held by Fredericksburg get broken during the meet,” Coach Dan Aldrich said.

He reported that 6A Round Rock Stony Point broke the 4x100 and 4x200 meet records while 4A Liberty Hill broke the 4x400 meet record.

“After having two weeks of not having a meet due to the weather and spring break, I was excited to see us perform against better teams than us which will help our girls get focused on our district goals in the upcoming weeks,” Aldrich said.

Next up for the FHS girls’ track team is the Bandera Bulldog High School Late Season Relays on Saturday, April 2.
