CL Hawks Rally to Tie Marble Falls, 3-3

Friday, February 27th, 2015

Last year Canyon Lake had a tough time against Marble Falls with some resounding defeats from our friends from the north.

On this frigid night Canyon Lake was able to scrape up a 3 run rally and after holding the home team scoreless in the bottom half of the sixth both teams said enough so they could go home in a warm bus.

Garrett Winters started the 6th inning with a single to right field.

Winters stole second base and Nick Cahill responded with an infield hit to the 3rd baseman leaving runners on first and second and no outs.

Cody Powell loaded the bases after taking one for the team as he was hit by the pitcher.

First ball hitting Gordon McCleary had the main hit when he doubled in two runs scoring Winters and Cahill.

Corey Shedrock hit a fly ball to left field scoring Powell with a sacrifice fly that tied the score.

Hawks Send Llano Home on Cold Bus in Win, 6-1

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

Canyon Lake started their season freezing the Yellowjackets with mid 30 degree weather and a solid, 6-1 victory.

“Outstanding early season game,” Head Coach Trent Dunavant said. “The key to this game was our pitchers being able to throw the curve ball for strikes.”

“We had productive at bats that gave us chances to win on a cold night,” Weatherman Dunavant forecast.

Cody Powell had control of his pitches while striking out 6 batters and putting zero’s on the score board for Llano, as the Yellowjackets could not warm up their game scoring 1 run in their last inning.

“Felt great,” Powell started after responding on what it felt like for his opening game. “I got more confident as the game progressed and on my ball movement.”

“I threw my curve ball for strikes for the team,” Powell finished. “Good game, but it was a little chilly.”

Hawk Baseball Pre/Season & District Capsule

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

Canyon Lake Baseball, hopes to avoid injuries and other hurdles with the new season approaching next week as the Hawks opened their season with a scrimmage against Llano last Tuesday.

Senior Nick Cahill will hope for a repeat of last years offense numbers

Senior Nick Cahill will hope for a repeat of last years offense numbers

“We played at times looking like it was our first scrimmage,” Head Baseball Coach Trent Dunavant assessed that game.

With this new year of play it will also usher in a district that certainly will be an upgrade from last year’s district.

Granted that statement is based on last year so there will always be teams that might not reach their potential and some teams that will gel and knock your socks off.

Canyon Lake was a team last year that did not reach their potential.

The Hawks entered their campaign last season with more returning starters than they have had since their second year of play when CL was in their second year of competition.

The ReSporter shares Stats from this Past School Year

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

The Reporter would like to thank all the many readers that have frequented this website this past year.

The ReSporter would like you to Vault into next year by placing an Ad on this site.

The ReSporter would like you to Vault into next year by placing an Ad on this site.

This has been a very successful year for the website as each month this season had more visits than any previous month since we started four years ago.

The ReSporter had 315 articles this past school year and since starting this quest, The ReSporter, has finished a total of 1,159 posts or articles.

Another way of saying, a lot of stories.

Now it is time for The ReSporter to take a few months off and hopefully come back with enough energy to get another year finished.

Our apologies for these past couple of weeks, The ReSporter, has suffered ‘Burn Out’ much like many of the Seniors have suffered from Senioritis.

With that being said, The ReSporter would like to invite you to think about helping with posting an Ad through this venue.

Since, The ReSporter, likes numbers then chew and calculate how these stats might help your business.

 School Year starting August 1 through May 28
 Year             Visits       Pageviews     Ave Time     Top 3 Cities in Visits
 2013-14          25,334       62,610           3:02      CL-8689/SA-4560/NB-2388
 2012-13          21,241       49,631           2:45      CL-6035/SA-3434/NB-2164
 2011-12          16,142       43,868           2:55      CL-4940/SA-2365/NB-1868

The * for 2010-11 represents just three months as this endeavor started after the basketball season that year, so those numbers will not have the same amount of days you could visit.

This also shows how each year has topped each previous season which should hopefully give you an idea of what might happen this coming school year.

SA and NB for the cities represent San Antonio and New Braunfels. Austin and San Marcos were right behind those two cities giving you an idea of how far this site can reach what you might be needing to sell or get across to your audience.

Thanks once again for showing support for this site and know that an Ad would cost $50 per semester and an extra $35 if you would like to have your Ad placed with articles, which many of you have noticed we started doing this past spring.

The ReSporter would also welcome ideas and thoughts that you might like to see for this upcoming school year.

Be Blessed and enjoy the Summer and tell my Advertisers you saw their Ad on my site…and Congrats to all the Seniors from Bracken and Canyon Lake. You don’t know how much I have enjoyed covering your events these past 4 years.

CL Softball & Baseball Award District and Team Players

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

Canyon Lake’s Baseball and Softball teams celebrated their completed season last week when they held a banquet to honor their District and Team awards.

The Hawks will be ready for action next season as both these teams had youth and many players that will be returning for a better finish to their season.

Softball is classic in that regard as this team will only graduate two Seniors and basically played Varsity ball with a Junior Varsity (in grade) team.

With a total of 4 upper echelon players, this Hawk team was loaded with Freshman and Sophomores in key areas all over the diamond.

Alexis Robinson       Sophomore     District 27-3A     1st Team Pitcher
Carly Dubois          Freshman      District 27-3A     1st Team Infield
Kelsey Ahrens         Junior        District 27-3A     2nd Team Infield
Brianna Young         Senior        District 27-3A     2nd Team Catcher

That is a pretty good list for a team that finished tied for last place in district competition.

An indicator of how much respect this team had amongst other district coaches that found themselves in a battle when taking the field this past year.

The players were also honored by their peers by casting their vote for three categories.

Best Offensive Player: Brianna Young

Young was a clutch hitter this year and for her career as she now holds the all time rbi numbers as well as standing in second place with a .367 career batting average.

Young finished this past season batting .461 with an on base percentage of .554 and a well deserved honor.

Frank Phillips College will be home for the next two years for Young and this young lady will do well in the Panhandle as she proved playing for the Hawks by getting on base via a hit or walk.

Those walks might come in handy based on how far she will be from home.

Best Defensive Player: Carly Dubois

Dubois made her mark in Hawk lore when she made a circus catch in one of her first games of this past season. The game was in Navarro and CL was in a hotly contested battle when this Freshman took off from her centerfield position and laid out for a snow cone catch in the alley.

There would be more of the same as this player would make doubles into outs and by using her speed to catch up to countless balls hit past the infield.

Dubois also had a hand in helping Catcher Young get her nickname as The Wall by throwing strikes from the outfield to home plate helping to cut down a potential run by the opposition.

Ultimate Team Player: Kelsey Ahrens

Wow! What can you say about a player that has brought her ‘A’ game in the batter’s box and third base position.

Ahrens was so good at third base that this year’s first baseman might have been better served playing with a catcher’s mitt instead of a regular glove.

In other words, she could bring it, and those laser throws almost broke the sound barrier several times.

Ultimate player also translates to the offensive side of the ball where Ahrens continues to improve each season at the plate.

Who can forget her walk-off 3run home run to beat Bandera this year. The ball she hit might still be climbing over the hills of Canyon Lake or who knows….the ball might have even made the lake.

A well deserving honor for Ahrens as this honor also tells the casual fan that she commands the respect of her teammates.

Congrats to all of these players as Canyon Lake will say good-bye to Young and Emma Broussard while welcoming a good group of players from Mountain Valley and bringing back every position but catcher and outfield spot.

The ReSporter will find it hard waiting to see how this team will respond to their new district as this team will be a fun team to follow.

===============================================

HAWK BASEBALL also had their ceremony and honored many players that performed this past season.

Yes, it was a disappointing end, but Canyon Lake will also have a good chance of raising the bar when they throw out the ball next year.

This past season this team saw a two out 7 run rally for a win while having their defense complete a triple play.

Those are two accomplishments that will be hard to duplicate.

Canyon Lake had seven players that were named for a spot for District 27-3A squad.

First Team All-District Players:
 Cody Powell        Junior            Pitcher
 Nick Cahill        Junior            Outfield
 TJ Jones           Senior            Utility

Second Team All-District Players:
 Garrett Winters    Junior            Third Base
 Nick Kissell       Junior            Pitcher
 Peyton Sipila      Senior            Shortstop
 JJ Nance           Senior            Outfield

 Canyon Lake also honored players voted on by their teammates:

110% Award: Tie
 Kyle Krohn         Senior            Catcher
 TJ Jones           Senior            Infield

Offensive MVP:
 Nick Cahill        Junior            Outfield

Defensive MVP:
 Garrett Winters    Junior            Infield

Team MVP:
 Nick Cahill        Junior            Outfield

Academic All-District:
 JJ Nance           Senior            Outfield
 TJ Jones           Senior            Infield
 Peyton Sipila      Senior            Infield

Nick Cahill certainly put himself with several other Hawk best players this season as this young man came on strong as the season progressed.

Anytime a player starts the season near the bottom of the batting order and then ends the year in the top four batters, then is a high compliment as Coach Trent Dunavant saw the value of having Cahill’s bat further up in the order.

Garrett Winters will need to use a glove for next year's ceremony to protect his hand while holding this plaque.

Garrett Winters will need to use a glove for next year’s ceremony to protect his hand while holding this plaque.

Garrett Winters also found out he can hit with power when he has a finger in a splint and keeping this player healthy for a full season has to be on the need to happen category for Coach Dunavant next season.

Winters is an automatic out when a ball is hit in his vicinity of third base and it is a joy watching how effortless he can turn a well placed ball into an out.

Both these players will be returning next year to build on their goals with one of those hopes being translated to a post-season slot.

Nick Kissell and Cody Powell will be instrumental in realizing that goal as both players will return for another year on the mound.

Congratulations to all the players and The ReSporter will be waiting with ‘bated’ breath as next season comes calling.
