Ladyhorns open season with pair of hoop victories

By Danny Hirt

The Ladyhorns from Harper High School opened the 2014-15 basketball season with a pair of victories, first defeating host Knippa 43-32 on Friday, Nov. 21, then besting Medina at home 53-36 on Tuesday, Nov. 25.

Three earlier games — at Ingram Nov. 11, and home against Ozona (Nov. 14) and Llano (Nov. 18) — had to be cancelled due to Harper’s participation in the UIL 2A volleyball tournament.

Additionally, last night’s home game with Utopia was cancelled at the opponent’s request.

Next up for the Ladyhorns (2-0) will be this weekend’s Harper tournament (see separate story), followed by Tuesday’s road game at Leakey.

Harper 53, Medina 36

The Ladyhorns relied on double-digit scoring from Logan White (18 points) to blow past Medina 53-36 in a home game played Tuesday, Nov. 25.

Victories over Canyon Lake and Marble Falls have propelled the Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ basketball team to an early 3-0 start in their 2014-2015 campaign.

On Monday, the Billies defeated the Mustangs 61-34 in Marble Falls after cruising to an 81-34 home victory over Canyon Lake Saturday.

Results from the Billies’ Tuesday’s home game against Medina Valley were unavailable as of press time.

FHS 61, Marble Falls 34

After getting out to what head coach Tim Kaman called “the slowest start of the year,” the Billies rallied back to defeat Marble Falls 61-34 on the road Monday.

“Marble Falls dictated tempo early by pulling the ball out and spreading the floor,” Kaman said. “We just did not execute our zone offense very well in the first half. We made some adjustments at halftime and then stepped up our defensive pressure in the second half to pull away.”

Ten members of the third-ranked Fredericksburg High School varsity volleyball team were honored as members of the All-District 29-4A team announced last week.

“This was a great season for us and it excites me that the kids are getting some recognition for our season and for their hard work,” Fredericksburg head coach Jason Roemer said Monday. “These kids competed every day and played the right way every day.”

Most valuable player

Senior setter Kendyl Stevens was named District MVP after smashing the FHS record for single season assists with 1,369.

Roemer said choosing the most valuable player in the district was difficult “because it’s hard to say what’s the most valuable part of a volleyball team?  Libero? Attackers? Setters?”

Eagles football heading to state six-man semis Saturday

By Danny Hirt

It was the kind of game one would expect to see when two old football rivals meet in the playoffs — close and back-and-forth.

Fortunately for Heritage, the Eagles managed to maintain a third quarter lead to defeat Seguin Lifegate, 30-22, in Friday’s TAPPS Division III six-man quarterfinal contest played in Seguin.

Heritage will now take on Granbury North Central Texas Academy in semifinal action, Saturday at 2 p.m. in Zephyr High School stadium.

The Eagles and NCT Academy (then known as Granbury Happy Hill Farm) have met twice before in the playoffs with Heritage coming away the victor both times. In 2004, they faced off in the TAPPS semifinals, then again in the 2011 finals when Heritage won its fifth ever state crown.

The Eagles defeated Lifegate, 40-20, in a District 3 regular season encounter played on Oct. 10.
