Canyon Lake Broadcasting’s Future

Canyon Lake Broadcasting’s Future

The idea was a simple one as we started thinking through the next phase of having the students at Canyon Lake highlighted in a market that leaves CL in the dark for the most part.

Yes, the New Braunfels’ paper covers the Hawks but for obvious reasons this paper has many other schools that are much larger that demands their attention.

Hence, The ReSporter and now Canyon Lake Broadcasting (CBL) is in their first year of working football games for the Hawk Nation.


Canyon Lake Broadcasting will Kick-Off this Thursday

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016

Canyon Lake Broadcasting is on the air LIVE!

Howdy! Canyon Lake Broadcasting (CLB) is now live and on the air covering Canyon Lake High School & Mountain Valley Middle School sports for the 2016 -2017 season.

CLB is an affiliate of K-MAC sports and will begin coverage starting August 25th with the CLHS JV football team starting at 630pm CST- live from CLHS.

Recent Grad Haden Lee

Canyon Lake was blessed with many students that excelled with their sport from the football field to soccer field and diamond to hard wood.

Two athletes were voted as the MVP of their sport which was a record for the Hawks and the list below has all the athletes The ReSporter was told of accomplishments.

Bailey Drum in Volleyball and Haden Lee for Football topped the list for this past season and as Seniors will look forward to seeing how these two will adjust to College as Drum will be off to Angelo State University and Lee as aspirations of walking on and compete for an opening at Texas State.

Congratulations for an entertaining year as the Hawk Nation will now look forward to seeing more CL students this coming school year.


CL Hawks Finish with Good Taste in Mouth, Win 6-1

Senior Dylan Hodges leaves game with a smile

Senior Dylan Hodges leaves game with a smile

Canyon Lake finished their year with a win and on a night of celebrating Senior Night, you can note that the word Senior is not plural.

Dylan Hodges finished his career for CL by turning a double play and knocking in the final run of a 4 run third inning that iced the game.

Finishing with a .545 on base percentage, the Hawks, were clicking on all cylinders as the game only had one hiccup by giving up one run in that first inning.

Gonzales was first ball hitting in that first frame and a first pitch strike was stroked for a triple and the Hawks found themselves like so many other games this year, fighting from behind.

Canyon Lake Sports start to wind down as the Hawk Softball team will playing their last game of the season on Tuesday in La Vernia.ads-300-x-600

This was a difficult year for Hawk Softball as this team had a very successful pre district record but just could not get out of the circle in district play.

What made last week win over Wimberley so satisfying was that the win was against the Texans and that would be the last district game for the next two years since Canyon Lake will moving west for their district games.

Baseball is entering into their last 3 games with one game this week in La Vernia and then an off day on Friday.

CL will have their last week of action next week when they play Yoakum away and then Senior Day with Gonzales on that Friday.

Track & Field will be in action in Liberty Hill this Thursday as the Hawks will do battle with District 25-4A Schools and our district qualifiers for a chance to compete the next week in TAMU-Kingsville.

Canyon Lake has a chance of sending several athletes this Thursday as the Hawks will need to finish in the top 2 to keep their eyes on getting to Austin.

The ReSporter added some Mountain Valley schedules for this week as you can have a chance of seeing some future CLHS Hawks compete.

Go Hawks!!

JV Baseball Win Tied Game with Blanco, 9-9

Canyon Lake JV Baseball won their tied game against Blanco on Thursday at the Hawk Nest, 9-9.

Earlier this season, Canyon Lake played Blanco and let’s just say that The ReSporter decided not to have an article on the massacre.

It was not a pretty game and in situations like that, it is better to leave the written word in the can.

Over a month later, another game was scheduled and The ReSporter wanted to see if there had been any improvement during this season.


Base/Soft Ball get Gobbled up in Cuero

Baseball and Softball get Gobbled up by the Cuero Gobblers as both games failed to reach the 7th inning.

This is a tough year for bats and balls as Baseball has won 2 games and this year’s Softball team is presently on a 10 game losing streak.

For the Hawk Baseball team you have youth out the wazoo as CL lost several Seniors last season and just were not loaded enough to keep that train on it’s track.

“We played ok, just could not get anything going offensively,” Head Baseball Coach Trent Dunavant stated. “We put the ball in play, just could not square anything up…so give them credit for getting the job done offensively.”

Canyon Lake’s Baseball has gone two games without a run as finding the right combination for batting is a hit and miss. (pardon the pun)

Gavin Dietrich took the loss as Cuero continues fighting for one of those precious play-off spots.

Canyon Lake’s Baseball team finally got their first district win when the Hawks used a .576 on base percentage in getting 11 runs for this come back victory.

“I had a good feeling about that 6 run inning,” Head Coach Trent Dunavant stated clairvoyantly. “I just felt something as we have been getting better every game and in every practice. The game is starting to slow down for them.”

The Yoakum Bulldogs were already chewing on their bone with a 6-2 lead after the first 3 innings but that was when the Hawks would swoop in for a steal, taking that bone from the Dogs.

CL used a 9 unanswered runs during those middle innings as Avery Montgomery settled in, on the pitching mound, while the Hawks manufactured 8 consecutive batters to reach base safely and resulting in 6 runs.

This inning had one play that would give the Hawks a ton of confidence and it came as a missed suicided squeeze play that had Cade Dunavant in a pickle being almost home and survival mode.
