Game 5: Canyon Lake 70 Yoakum 52    Basketball

Game 4 in the count down of the Top 5 games played this past season will certainly be a surprise to some of you since this game did not involve a Varsity team.

This year, Canyon Lake had many sub-varsity teams that finished at the top district races as Mountain Valley keeps feeding some salty classes to the halls in CL that are transferring to a sporting event.

The Hawks had a break out year in Volleyball this season, but many times when a Varsity team comes through with a good season, the Freshman and Junior Varsity might not be as talented.

You might say that those Varsity teams were successful because they needed those younger players to help get them in a better position to compete in those all important district games.

Wimberley has been a thorn in the side of Hawk fans ever since the first year of competition and this past season, the Junior Varsity made great strides as they too were a much improved group of ladies that will be ready to take the baton from those Senior Volleyball players.

Canyon Lake’s Varsity finished by hitting the 30 win plateau, but one of the better games played came during a home game against Wimberley.

The Varsity had an undefeated district record as did Wimberley in the first half of the round robin of district games and the stands would fill up with more people to ever witness a home game.

MVMS Beats Canyon MS with Two Come-Backs, 9-8

Mountain Valley Baseball team had a different ending to their game on Thursday against Canyon than the previous week in their loss to Smithson Valley Middle School.

First, the Hawks won, but more than that was how these two games played out.

Last week, MVMS had an incredible comeback in their last inning, only to lose the game in the first extra inning after the comeback by two runs.

This game, the Hawks not only forged back like their previous week, but on this night took things further and had a two for one in regards to coming back.

“One of those games that gives our team some experience as they want to win and they never quit,” Head Coach Raymond Amaro said. “In our very first game with Canyon we came back and we had to focus in practice and when we had bad things happen we needed to be positive.”


All-Hawk Baseball Team (Continued)

Baseball All-Hawk Team continues with some very tough decisions. With six players already on the scorer’s sheet, The ReSporter, will try to fill that sheet with three more entries.

Yes, this could easily go in several different directions and certainly open for discussion as their would be no argument with another deserving student making a case for a spot.

The ReSporter has two good pitchers and having Cody Powell would only help pitching Coach Bret Hodges when he wanted to make a change on the mound.

Powell’s only drawback was his walk ratio but needing a southpaw would help in those certain situations needed in what is probably the most complicated sport because of all the different variable that play into a game result.


MVMS Hawks Run out of Innings in Loss, 10-8

Mountain Valley Baseball team made things interesting as their rally just fell short in extra innings losing to Smithson Valley Middle School, 10-8.

This comeback would not have been possible if reliever Cody Daily had not made an appearance in the fourth inning to stop the bleeding.

“Throw strikes and just try to bring my team up and win,” Daily said while answering what his thinking was as he took the mound for those middle innings. “We just are going to get a winning attitude.”

SVMS had forged into a, 7-2 lead as the Rangers had scored in all but one inning as they could start coasting going into those middle innings.

The Hawks decided they had better start a comeback and that was what happened as MVMS had two outs when the improbable started.


Hawk’s Baseball All-Time Players

Thursday, May 7th, 2015


So far The ReSporter has Michael Brady, Travis Walker, and Ross Waglardo as three of the best baseball athletes during their stay at Canyon Lake.

Picking this team is a much tougher task than softball as there has been many more players to play while most of softball students were 3 or 4 year players.

This is to say, there will be several people that can make a case for a different set of players for this team and The ReSporter would not be hurt by that assessment.

With the 3 players that have been picked, The ReSporter feels that those 3 students would need to be on everyone’s ballot.

Drew Riccio will be our next pick as this young man could bring more than just his athletic skills, he would be that player needed in the dug out for preparing the team for any battle no matter what inning in the game.


Baseball’s All-Hawk Team

The ReSporter had requests of having an All-Star Baseball team to mirror recent articles made for Hawk Softball team.

Hope you enjoy this two part rendition.

Giving you thoughts on who should be on this team will be tough with so many players that deserve mention.

The ReSporter will start with giving four players for this two part series.

Michael Brady will be our catcher for this team as this young man was very good in throwing out base runners while leading all players with the best batting average at .364, while having more walks than strikeouts (48 bb/44 so) during his career.

Hawks Strike-Out Apaches in Win, 5-1

Canyon Lake pulled off a season ending victory over Gonzales last Friday night as Cody Powell struck out 14 Apaches in the win, 5-1.

In a 7 inning game you need to record 21 outs as a visiting team to record a victory and when your southpaw pitcher is on, then 14 strikeouts will also be a pitchers best defense in the victory.

Those strikeouts equates to 2 out of 3 outs per inning and the Hawks rode that train for their second win over Gonzales this season.

Nick Kissell led the Hawks with 2 hits and also had a walk for a decent on base percentage.

Colton Avey doubled for the only extra base hit as their were several Hawks playing in their last game for Canyon Lake.


Hawks Run Out of Steam in Loss to Yoakum, 9-2

Canyon Lake finished their last home game with a loss to Yoakum last Friday night as errors kept the game out of reach for the home squad, 9-2.

The score might not look close, but up until that final inning, Canyon Lake was still within striking range of pulling off a win, with a 4-2 deficit.

Baseball can be tough sport as Yoakum capitalized with timely hits, while the Hawks could score only one run after having 3 consecutive singles to start the 5th inning with just one run being scored.

The Hawks ran out of steam in that last inning giving up 5 runs and too many runs to get back into the game.
