CL Hawks continue their climb into the light of day as their loss showed that better things might be on the horizon after a tough loss to Fredericksburg, 4-3.

“Our effort was outstanding and I think they are finally getting it,” Head Coach Trent Dunavant started. “The young guys are feeling comfortable and are laying a good foundation…..we’re still young and we just needed a couple of breaks.”

The Billies started first with 3 singles in the first with an error thrown in for seasoning and Canyon Lake started in a hole, 2-0.


CL Hawks Lose After Dodge BallGame to Hondo, 4-3

The Canyon Lake Hawks play dodge ball in loss to Hondo, 4-3 last Friday night.

Two things, the Hawks were beaned 5 times and in the field CL committed 5 errors.

The errors won this battle as Canyon Lake could not muster enough runs to tip the scale into their favor.

With 4 walks and 5 hit batsman, the Hawks, just did not have that one more hit to help in one of their best played games to date.


CL Hawks Baseball Takes another Loss from Boerne, 10-1

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

Ranger Cleaners says Go Hawks!!

Canyon Lake could only scratch off one run in their second run-ruled game game with the Boerne Greyhounds, 10-1.

There were two outs when Avery Montgomery reached base base on the Greyhound’s short-stop error.

JT Greene followed with a walk which advanced Montgomery with two on and two outs.

Enter Caleb Williams with a line drive single to left field to score Montgomery but that would be the extent of the damage on this night.

CL Hawks Can’t Slow Down Greyhounds in Loss, 11-0

The CL Hawks started their district playing a perennial powerhouse in Boerne and the Greyhounds played like one on Friday night as they got on their Greyhound for home after winning, 11-0.

Canyon Lake were put in molasses early as the Greyhounds were off and running in the first inning and never stopped with their two home-runs that ended up being enough to close up shop for another day.

“We are going to stay with our process and eventually it will get here,” Head Coach Trent Dunavant stated. “We will work on our fundamentals until we are blue in our face.”


Hawks Finish Tourney on an Upbeat, Beat Jourdanton, 3-0

Canyon Lake showed signs of life after blanking Jourdanton in their last tournament game in Somerset, 3-0.

“We played two games real well,” Head Coach Trent Dunavant surmised. “In our loss to Somerset our pitching did not have a walk and everything they (Somerset) got they earned.”

CL had a stellar performance from the mound in the second game that has given that glimmer of hope that this season has a chance of pulling out better than their record indicates.

“Our team is not set up for having success in a tournament format,” Coach Dunavant said. “You play a lot of games in a few days and we do not have the depth on defense or on the mound….if we bring in a player in the field to pitch then we just had one of our best fielders switched and having a different player in that vacated spot will cause mistakes because of not being used to that position.”

Lakeside Dog Grooming Says         Go Hawks!


Another busy week for the sports programs as spring is in the air with baseball and softball size hail. Just be sure to have cover when the hail stones look like a shot-put.

Baseball started this year in a mud hole and found it hard to get their vehicle out of that quagmire.

A well deserved win on Friday night showed hope that with a little repair the machinery will be humming by the time district play commences.

The Hawk Baseball crew will be in the Somerset Tournament starting on Thursday with games against Devine and Medina Valley that first day.

CLJV Baseball will play Wimberley on Monday and then off to the Canyon Tournament on Thursday.

Softball had a good week with wins over Burnet and Navarro and will now meet up with Wimberley this next Tuesday.

        Go Canyon Lake

This will be a huge game along with a trip to San Marcos for their last tournament of the season.

Their Pool of teams has Fredericksburg in the first round and that will give a showcase of what each of these two District 28-4A partners have before real games start in a couple of weeks.

The Lady Golf team did not have all present last week but will have their team ready for their Tournament in Wimberley on Monday while the Boys play at the Quick Sand Course on the next day.

Track & Field will travel to Bandera on Wednesday for a mid-week meet.

The Tracksters had a cool and rainy day in Fredericksburg on Saturday and will look to improve and close the gap on the Billies as they won the battles on Saturday against CL and two other District 28-4A schools in attendance.

The good news is that the Hawks found that they were also better than Bandera and Hondo and now have an inkling on how they will need to train and prepare for the District Meet in April.

So, there are a lot of tournaments for all the teams that use a bat this week.

     Alayna-Gayle says Go Hawks!

Soccer gets back in action after a bye date this past week.

The Boys had a huge tie against Fredericksburg as they solidified their playoff and now have a chance of improving their seeding.

Wimberley will be up first for both Girls and Boys teams. The Lady Soccer team played the Texans tough in their last contest and this week will travel the Back-Bone to play at their place.

Bandera will be the opponent this Friday as the Boy’s team will hope the third time is a charm after suffering a loss earlier this year at the Hawk Tournament and then going on the road to tie the Bulldogs in the first round of play.

The ladies beat the Bulldogs on the road in that first round and the Bandera Lady Soccer team will have a tough time winning on the road as CL will work on a victory as this district year quickly comes to a close.

This is by far the best Soccer Teams combined in Hawk history as it is shaping up as the second year in a row where both squads will be making Playoff T-Shirts this year.

A week of many games and events as Spring Break will in full bloom on that next week.

Catch an event and support the Hawks, between the Hawk Sports complex and Wimberley you will be able to good chance of seeing Canyon Lake in action.

Go Hawks!!

Repeat-Boutique Says Go Hawks and Repeat Winning


Canyon Lake put up a good fight in their Basketball game with Navarro but just missed out on that last 3point shot for a chance to go to another round.

The Hawks had their best season since they built the school and look to have more years like this one as the Junior Varsity won District 28-4A this year and will look to fill those 8 vacancies from graduating Seniors

Congratulations to these Boys and keep thriving for the best.

Girls Soccer had a huge win this past week against Fredericksburg as they now have cemented themselves into a playoff berth while looking for a better seed with more wins as they will start the second round this Tuesday when Boerne comes to town.

The Boys Soccer team had a tough loss to Fredericksburg on the road losing, 4-3 but will look to rebound when they go on the road to Boerne on Tuesday. The Boys tied Bandera last Tuesday and will continue their best season since they started kicking balls in 2008.

Golf is the next sport that is showing promise as both the Girls and Boys teams won their Meet last week in Sequin. Chance Martelli was medalist with a 77 score as both of these teams will continue their trek when they travel to Vaaler Creek this week for another chance to fill their Trophy Case.

Baseball started their season and came away with one tie to go with 5 losses. A tough start to this season as it will not get any easier as the Comal Tournament will start up this week and Canyon Lake will be host to several teams.

A good time to come out for some good baseball as the schedule above has the Hawk game times.

Lakeside Dog Grooming Says         Go Hawks!

Softball finished 2nd for their second time as they repeated that same position as the week before at Navarro.

This crew now stands with a 9-2-1 record as they will welcome two home games this week when Burnet and Navarro come calling. This will be a good week to see how this team will start to jell with games that will not be timed and that in itself will allow the Coaches to see how the Hawks do in longer settings.

Canyon Lake won their 100th game two weeks ago and now will have their sites on getting to .500 ball with a good year.

Volleyball is the only Hawk sport with an overall winning record for team sports.

        Go Canyon Lake

Track & Field had some promising times and throws and jumps coming from the Hays Lobo Relays last Saturday.

This week will be a big test as CL will travel to Fredericksburg and have a chance to see how their District 28-4A mates will fare with some one on one competition.

The Billies have always been a large hurdle for the Hawks to clear and this will give a chance of knowing what will need to be done to clear those barriers.

A lot going on, so if you are bored, then come out to the Hawk Nest and see some games!!

Go Hawks!!!
