Netters earn victory against Schertz Clemens

By Austin R. Eck —

The Battlin’ Billies tennis team faced off against Schertz Clemens on Saturday morning and walked away with a victory.

After the doubles matches, the dual match was still close.

“We tried some new doubles combinations that left us up only 4-3 after doubles,” head coach Randall King said.

The Billies found momentum in the singles portion of the match and earned the victory.

The afternoon match against Schertz Steele was cancelled due to rain, and there are no current plans to reschedule it.

The Billies will play their next match against Brownwood at 9 a.m. on Saturday in Mason. Fredericksburg will then play at 4 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 23, at Boerne Middle School South against Boerne High School.

Final scores don’t matter to Fredericksburg High School varsity football coach Lance Moffett, whose Battlin’ Billies staved off a late rally to defeat Austin Travis 48-35 at home Friday night.

All that matters is another W.

“I don’t care about rankings and I don’t care about stats,” Moffett said. “48-35 on Saturday morning doesn’t look as good as 42-7 or 48-14 and I could care less.”

“For all practical purposes, for three quarters we dominated that game,” he added. “We were able to kind of mash them a little bit (on both sides of the line). I wouldn’t say I was surprised, but I am very happy to see them clicking.”

The biggest disappointment in the contest, Moffett said, was the failure to find time to get every member of the 45-man roster on the field during Parent’s Night.

Totally in control

Burnet — who hosts the Fredericksburg High School varsity football team Friday night at 7:30 p.m. — has been a measuring stick for FHS head coach Lance Moffett that he’s compared the Billies to the Bulldogs since before he was hired four seasons ago.

When applying for the Fredericksburg job, Moffett said he turned to former FHS coach and current Bulldog assistant Todd Doucet for some insight into the Billies.

“I wanted to know ‘Could we turn this football program to be like Burnet’s football program,’” he said. “He told me if these kids make a commitment to the weight room that they could be every bit as good as Burnet if not better.”

Though FHS leads the all-time series with the Bulldogs 19-17-1, Burnet has defeated Fredericksburg in each of the last three seasons, giving Moffett and this year’s seniors extra motivation.

Billies start season off on the right foot at Llano invitational

By Austin R. Eck

In its first test of the year, the Fredericksburg High School cross country team passed with a first place finish and a second place finish.

The Billies ran their first meet of the season last Thursday, Sept. 4, at the Llano Invitational, and the boys’ varsity team finished first place in its division and the girls’ varsity recorded a second place finish.

The meet gave head coach Dan Aldrich a chance to evaluate the improvements the team has made since the start of workouts.

“I was very pleased with our early season performances and was able to evaluate many of our kids on how they have improved since day one,” he said.

Now, the focus of the practice will start to shift for the Billies. Instead of practicing long distances, they will now start to complete shorter intervals to improve overall times.

Tenth-ranked Billies hold off Liberty Hill in five sets Tuesday

By Matt Ward —

Another big win for the Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball team closed out a “plain crazy day” as the Billies outlasted Liberty Hill in five sets on the road Tuesday night.

“I could not be more proud of the character and perseverance we showed all day today,” head coach Jason Roemer said. “After the weird day at school and all the distractions, it was nice to be able to go about business as normal, get on the bus and travel to compete and show a little Billie pride.”

“It was fun regardless of what side of the win/loss column we’d come out on,” he added. “But it’s always fun to play in that type of match and especially to win one of those on the road.”

Over the weekend, Fredericksburg finished seventh in the gold bracket at the Hays Invitational Tournament.

FHS will have this weekend off before hosting Burnet Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m.
