Hawks Gift Game to Burnet in, 10-4 Loss

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016
Go Hawks!!

                        Go Hawks!!

Canyon Lake did themselves no favors in their loss to Burnet, 10-4 on Tuesday night at the Hawk Diamond.

The Hawks had double figures in the error department giving the Bulldogs way too many chances for scoring in this eventual loss.

Only 2 earned runs in this contest where CL outhit their opponent but just could not get their fielding to cooperate.

Canyon Lake closed the gap to, 4-3 in the third inning but in that inning, after a Rory Preiss rbi hit, was caught trying to advance to second base.

Hawks Can’t Capitalize in Loss to Columbus, 15-6

Friday, March 4th, 2016
Colton McDonald had 2 hits in loss to Columbus

Canyon Lake could not capitalize in their loss to Columbus, 15-6, during the Comal County Baseball Tournament.

The Hawks made a valiant comeback when they scored 6 runs in the bottom of the 2nd to draw within 2 runs of the visitors.

That inning had 4 timely hits and enough chaos to put Canyon Lake into a position to make a game on this night.

CL just could not get a 1-2-3 inning as Columbus continued to put pressure on the Hawk defense as Hawk errors made the innings too long for the tired arms for Canyon Lake to withstand the onslaught.

Canyon Lake is also short on arms as JC Parrish (the catcher) got the nod as the starting pitcher on this night.

CL Hawks Get 1st Win over SA Burbank, 2-1

Friday, March 4th, 2016
Go Hawks!!

          Go Hawks!!

It was a good day for Canyon Lake’s Baseball team as they finally broke the dam for a win over San Antonio Burbank behind some strong pitching and 2-1 win.

Colton McDonald was the starter and he went 5 innings in giving up just 2 hits and keeping the visitors without a way to deposit in their ‘Bur’ Bank.

The Hawks scratched across two runs in the 3rd inning as Gavin Dietrich knocked a run in with a triple and scored the next run off the bat of Austin Brooks.

Those two runs would hold for this game as Brooks and Avery Montgomery each pitched an inning to shut down Burbank.

Hawks Don’t Get DoOver in Loss to Johnson City, Lose 7-4

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016
Gavin Dietrich pitches strong game against Johnson City giving up just 1 earned run

Gavin Dietrich pitches strong game against Johnson City giving up just 1 earned run

If Canyon Lake could have ‘do-overs’ then redoing that 2nd Inning would be where the Hawks would have another chance of playing that inning after a hard fought loss to Johnson City, 7-4.

It has been mentioned before as this year’s Hawk team has just one Senior and has the look of how Canyon Lake started when the school was just starting.

So, this is not the first time for Head Coach Trent Dunavant to be in these situations, “I am finding myself saying things to this team that I said back when we first started.”

“This was a tough game but our effort was good and we knew this year would be a struggle,” Coach Dunavant said. “This team likes to come to the park and they are getting things done and they want to learn and teaching these guys is many times, more than just baseball.”

Baseball’s Coaches Corner & All-Time Top 5

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016
Travis Walker played 4 years on the Varsity and holds many of the Hawk Records

Travis Walker played 4 years on the Varsity and holds many of the Hawk Records

The ReSporter has been hurriedly trying to get with as many of the Coaches as possible as this time of the year starts to unfold with a lot of games and events going on, almost non-stop.

Catching up with Baseball Head Coach Trent Dunavant was next on our docket and The ReSporter will share the conversation next.

The ReSporter: First off, this season has to remind you of your first year as Coach in the hill country.

Coach Dunavant: “That is the exact analogy I was mentioning to Coach Bret Hodges the other day as we have more Freshman and inexperienced players than those days when we had just Sophomores and Juniors on the club and getting ready for our first season.”

The ReSporter: I was thinking that when you shared that your roster would be so young and then you add how many on last year’s team were seniors and walking across the stage.

The ReSporter: How will you approach this upcoming schedule?

Coach Dunavant: “We are really young and we have three players, Dylan Hodges, CJ Parrish, and Gavin Dietrich that played on last year’s varsity. Austin Brooks did play a little but he was more of person we would plug in here or there.”

Coach Dunavant: “We will have to rely on Dietrich a lot since he pitched for us last year and we just don’t have a lot of pitchers with experience starting this year.”

The ReSporter: Do you have any ‘diamonds in the rough’ that we can look forward to seeing?

Coach Dunavant: “Hayden Reed will give us some good outfield play and Lee Stafford is a catcher by trade but we will be able to move him as a utility middle infielder.”

The ReSporter: When you have such a young team, what part of the game would you say is the hardest to conquer?

Coach Dunavant: “Hitting is the hardest you have to have so much muscle memory and unless they are playing throughout the season, that will be something hard for these players to master during the season…..defense does not go into a slump.”

The ReSporter: That is a good one coach, that reminded me of many of your past seniors that came into their last campaign and they just hit a mental block and could not get out of their season long slump even though they had a very productive junior year.”

Coach Dunavant: “Yes, even if they can swing a bat, they still have to pick out the right pitch to drive and that just does not happen overnight.”

The ReSporter: How will you replace a Garrett Winters?

Coach Dunavant: “That will be very difficult as he was a top young man and he always brought a great attitude to the field. Yes, his play was ideal, but his upbeat attitude will be hard to replace.”

The ReSporter: Your schedule will not be very forgiving early in the season.

Coach Dunavant: “That is something you cannot know how it will affect the team. We have gone to the Lockhart tournaments before and after playing those teams we would come home and get our game handed to us by more experienced teams. So just playing games for feeling good about yourself will not alway play dividends against teams down the road.”

Coach Dunavant: “We will have a different schedule next year since our district will be much smaller and that will give us a chance to play more non-district teams.”

The ReSporter: This year will be a season where wins and losses might not tell the whole story on how this group might play out as the next two seasons play out.

Coach Dunavant: “We will see what happens and it all feeds on having our kids play a lot….we had a good effort against Boerne and our kids will give a good effort and they are very coachable. If we can stay healthy and we know we have no depth but this will be the first time in a while we will not have any drama going on in practice.”

The ReSporter: Thanks Coach, I will assume having drama on a baseball team will sometimes play against you especially if that drama is a One Act Play. Good luck and we will hope that those one-act-plays turn into double plays.

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

Canyon Lake Lady’s Basketball lost their Friday game with Wimberley but with Gonzales taking some lumps from Navarro guaranteed CL to qualify after this Tuesday’s game.

Stay tuned to Hilltop and we will get you info on where and who the Hawks will be playing.

Congratulations!!

Likewise, the Boy’s Basketball squad finished the week 1-1 and will take on La Vernia this Tuesday.

The Hawks would settle things with an upset over the Bears this Tuesday.

Canyon Lake will have one other game a week later against Yoakum and the Bulldogs helped the Hawks cause immensely when they lost their game to Cuero last Friday.

The Boys team is coupled with CL’s Boys Soccer as the only team sport to yet make it out of district play by qualifying for playoffs.

Hawk Soccer has started to make some noise this season as they sport a 7-4 record and presently on a 5 game winning streak.

That will be the same until district starts up in two weeks and finding a way to also qualify for the playoffs would make this season one of the best in Hawk Sport’s history.

This week CL beat a high caliber team in San Marcos Academy on Tuesday and then followed that win with their first home win on Friday over Burnet.

CL’s Girls Soccer finished this past week with 2 ties with one of those games having the Hawks coming back from a 3 goal deficit.

Softball is still in exhibition stage with Harper’s game this Tuesday being the last game before contests start counting.

Baseball will also be starting this week as the Spring Schedule starts to get interesting.

The Varsity Tennis will have their first competition this Friday as they will travel to Georgetown’s Kerry Minzenmayer Classic.

There has to be a sport you can come and support this year’s Spring edition for Hawk sports.

Go Hawks!!
