Fredericksburg High School head football coach Lance Moffett usually knows if he wants the Billies to receive the opening kickoff or defer to the second half hours in advance of the game.

It’s a choice he’s had to make all four games so far this season as the Billies are a perfect 4-0 on the coin toss to open the year.

“I wasn’t certain after the Burnet game (55-7 road loss) what we needed to do,” Moffett said. “A lot of times I know what we’re going to do just based off our chemistry that week, whether we’re going to take the ball or kick off.”

Moffett opted to put his defense on the field and FHS came through, forcing a three-and-out and blocking a punt leading to the Billies’ first touchdown in a shutout 30-0 homecoming win over Llano, Friday.

FHS cross country teams ready to host home meet on Saturday

By Austin R. Eck

 

The Battlin’ Billies cross country team faced its first real test of the season at Saturday’s UTSA Ricardo Romo Cross Country Classic.

In San Antonio, the girls’ team finished third overall and the boys finished fourth.

The meet was the only opportunity the Billies had face all of their district foes before the district meet in late October.

The girls’ squad finished second amongst district schools and the boys finished third against district school on Saturday. The top three teams at the district meet advance to the regional meet.

“I explained to the kids that Saturday was only a preview and that we cannot say we are guaranteed a spot at regionals,” head coach Dan Aldrich said. “Nothing is a for sure thing, especially in our sport, and the performances in one month can come down to just a few points and seconds between many teams battling for the top three spots.”

Netters stay hot against Boerne, Brownwood

By Austin R. Eck

 

The Battlin’ Billie tennis team (9-3, 2-0) stayed hot as it won two matches this week in preparation for the top ranked school in class 4A.

Fredericksburg High School started its week on Saturday against Brownwood in Mason. The Billies took the match 10-3.

“Brownwood on Saturday was a closer match than the score indicates,” head coach Randall King said. “We were only up 4-3 after doubles, but then reeled off 10 singles victories with very strong performances top to bottom.”

The netters took to the court again on Tuesday night to square off against Boerne High School at Boerne Middle School South. The Billies won its second district match of the year 10-2.

The Battlin’ Billies had a fast start and came out of doubles play with a 6-1 lead over the Greyhounds.

Three of the six wins that came in double play went to a third and definitive set.
