Baseball: CL Hawks Find Way to Win in Beating Hondo, 3-2

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

Catcher Lee Stafford throws out 2 Owls on winning night

Canyon Lake won a must win game at home after scoring on a wild pitch in the bottom of the 7th inning with a final of, 3-2.

“This win was huge for us,” Head Coach Trent Dunavant said. “Guys are starting to come around and believe in themselves. We played well against Hondo at their place minus a couple of critical mistakes…So we knew we could win.”

Hondo struck first scoring a run in the top of the 2nd inning after a lead off single and then two batters later a double had the Owls looking good.

With just one out and a batter on 2nd a fly-out to Parker Reno in centerfield and then the last out came from a foul ball behind home plate to end the inning.

The ReSporter: Give us your overall thoughts on this past season.

Ranger Cleaners says Go Hawks!!

Coach Chapman: “It was obviously the best season in program history, so we were pleased with what we did. We had some really memorable moments and games that will stay with the coaches and players for a long time. I told my wife the other day that I really miss the season and the games, bus rides and practices. She looked at me like I was crazy, but I do really miss being able to coach our players and seniors and get ready to compete against someone else. It was a lot of fun, and we accomplished a lot of good things.” 

The ReSporter: Tell the Hawk Nation bout this Senior Class and what they have accomplished for round-ball.

Coach Chapman: “Up to this point this senior class has been our most accomplished. They led us to two playoff births, our first winning season and a lot of big wins. Like I told them last week, they were the pioneers to take our program to new heights, which is very difficult to do. It is always difficult to be the first ones to knock down a wall and plow through it. They have really opened up our program, and made a path for future teams and players to walk through. Our young guys now expect to be in the playoffs and compete for district championships, and that is because of our seniors. Aside from all of the basketball accolades, they are fine young men with very bright futures. There will undoubtedly go on to accomplish some big things in their lives, and I look forward to seeing those things.”

The ReSporter: What type of activity do the players do now during this time of year?

Coach Chapman planning strategy in Hawk Victory

Coach Chapman: “Right now we are back at it working for next year. We have told our returners that the 2017-18 season has already started. We are in the weight room and in the gym working to get bigger and stronger as well as more fundamentally sound. In May we will compete in our spring league and then probably play in summer league over the summer. We also have a solid group of players getting into the gym before school and working on their game, which is exciting to see. We are only a week into the off-season, but our players have really done a great job of working with energy and excitement.” 

The ReSporter: The Track team just inherited a lot of points from this crew of basketball players. What does that say bout their athletic skills?

Coach Chapman: “We were a very athletic group this year, which carries over well to track. Obviously the McDonoughs will earn a ton of points each week in several events. Gerrit has always done well in the hurdles, and now Charlie has come out to compete in a few jumping events. Bennie is also competing in the distance events, which he is very committed to and good at. It’s exciting to see them doing so well in track in just their first meet.” 

The ReSporter: You will have a lot of holes to fill next year….your JV team won district, what are your thoughts as this group of players start their quest for another round in the playoffs for next season?

The Club at Rebecca Creek says Hit them Straight & Go Hawks

Coach Chapman: “Just looking at who we have coming back and who other teams have coming back we feel we can and will be very successful next year. Like I alluded to earlier, our younger guys just expect to be in the playoffs because of what our seniors have done. They understand that we have to have a great off-season and need to improve, but they just have a confidence and belief in what we can accomplish. We are losing 8 seniors, so a lot of our younger guys look at that as an opportunity to fill a spot. I fully expect us to battle for a district championship this year, and hopefully make some noise in the playoffs.”

The ReSporter: Thanks Coach for your time this year and we look forward to next year’s Basketball Chapter.

Hawks Hope Win becomes Contagious after Victory over Seguin, 8-6

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

Canyon Lake breaks the drought after opening with a 5 run lead and holding on against Seguin on a cool Friday night contest, with the Hawks winning, 8-6.

Seguin started this game like many CL contests as they had just one out with the bases loaded. Drew Tyra executed a perfect pitch on a squeeze play that resulted in a pop-up and a nice easy underhanded throw to 3rd for the double play.

Defense is always one of those keys on securing a win and that play would end up being one a turning point in getting some rain clouds for this Hawk drought.


Basketball Seniors Leave Hawks Near the Rim

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

How good was this year’s Seniors for the Hawk Basketball team?   This will go down as the best Senior Class, as this group of players had to overcome years of bad karma in the Hawk Hoop World.

The ReSporter will base this article on the past two years, but some of these Seniors contributed to the Hawk basketball team for a 3 year period.

Tyler Williams and Rory Preiss were two of those mainstays that played well enough as Freshman to catch the eye of Head Coach Lucas Chapman.

Canyon Lake only had platitudes for that old saying, ‘ we will get them next year’.


Last 5 Seconds Go Silent in Hawk Loss to Navarro, 46-43

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

The Hawks could not get their last 3point shot off as time ran out on Canyon Lake in a razor thin loss to Navarro in Bi-District Playoffs, 46-43.

“I was very proud of our guys and how hard we competed. We certainly didn’t come out on top due to lack of effort,” Head Coach Lucas Chapman stated. “We had some guys step up and play really good games. Tyler did an outstanding job for us. He protected the paint and basket well and pretty much shut down their big man. Charlie (McIntosh) came in and gave us some great minutes.  Jacob (Ramirez) played a really solid all around game. There were others too.”

Canyon Lake had the opportunities as the Hawks started the game with a solid first quarter but a repeat of their first game with the Panthers boomeranged after scoring 7 points while Navarro poured in 18 in taking a halftime lead, 30-23.


“CLEAR”! Hawks Miss Bus with Boerne and Lose, 68-39

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

  Go Hawks!!

Canyon Lake’s Bus was seen at Boerne High School for their final District 28-4A contest, however, the players did not get off the bus as the Hawks laid an egg in their loss to the Greyhounds, 68-39.

CL will now wait for Wimberley and Navarro to decide which team will play the Hawks as these two schools will have a playoff this Friday in New Braunfels to decide the 1st and 2nd seed for District 27-4A.

The Hawks will have the loser of that contest and they will have the Bi-District contest next Tuesday.

CL Hawks Fall Off Truck in Loss to the Billies, 64-49

Canyon Lake fell off the truck in the 3rd quarter in their loss to Fredericksburg on Friday night at the Hawk Nest, 64-49.

The Hawks carved out a 27-25 advantage going into the halftime locker room after Sophomore Parker Mott had a steal underneath CL’s basket on an inbound pass and scoring at the horn for the lead.

That was the type of plays needed and for those first two quarters the Hawks had held their own in a battle with the top two teams in District 28-4A.
