The ReSporter: With the Regular Season ending in Bandera, give us your opinion on where this team is as the next rung on the ladder enters with playoffs?
Coach Paisley: “We are prepared for a fight! We know nothing is handed to us and we must give it our best every point! We have been battling it out in practices and pushing our game to the next level. This is what we have been working towards. Everyone on our team is a contributor and we all have a job to do!”
The ReSporter: You will be facing a foe for the third time when you match-up with Wimberley, is there any truth to the 3rd game being the toughest when one team has a 2-0 lead going into that third match? (more…)
The ReSporter: Give us an idea of where this Boerne game stacks up with previous Hawk battles?
Coach Drum: “It is right up there with our district championship game last year and also our game with Boerne last season….we don’t know where the chips will fall but we have 3 teams that can make it.”
The ReSporter: How is the team with their health issues as we have had several players out this year? (more…)
The ReSporter: Give us your overall impression of the pre-district games you have just completed.
Coach Paisley: “Our PreSeason schedule ended with three tough teams from our neighboring district. The competition is good for us as we head into district play. These last three teams, Wimberely, Navarro, and LaVernia, are our first possible round in playoffs.”
The ReSporter: How will this year’s District 28-4A group of schools look in comparison to last seasons?
Coach Paisley: “I know Fredericksburg will be tough, along with Boerne. I know Boerne has stepped it up a notch from last year, and they have some new young players looking to lead their team. As far as Bandera and Hondo, I do not count them out for a competitive game, because we are all fighting for district titles and playoffs!”
The ReSporter: You have played the top 3 teams with the district that would be our first round of games….how does that group of schools stack up overall? (more…)
The ReSporter: You always here that the best improvement for a team comes between the first and second week of games. What will you be working on this week to see if the team is getting better?
Coach Drum: “Team speed and athleticism stuck out for me. Using some offensive players on defense has definitely helped in those two areas.”
The ReSporter: What part of the Defense showed the most improvement from last year and why? (more…)
The ReSporter: What are your thoughts as this new campaign begins on Monday?
Coach Paisley: “We are excited to get out there and compete! It is always great to start your season off with some highly competitive opponents. It will be a great way to assess where we are as a team mentally and physically and build from there as the season begins.” (more…)
Canyon Lake will be starting up their sports with the Volleyball team when the Hawks will be taking on the Alumni Hawks on August 3rd.
Volleyball has the best record for any sport at Canyon Lake and will look to continue that mantra this year with a team returning several starters and other players that had some 1st place finishes with those Sub-Varsity teams this past year.
The ReSporter caught up with Head Coach Kim Paisley as she shared what might be in store for this year’s team. (more…)
Canyon Lake played musical chairs with their Soccer Coaches as Ryan Tierney the girls coach will now be moving to the Boy’s Soccer team after Head Coach Warren Graham will be stepping down.
Coach Graham had a great 4 year run for the team but his family took priority and providing for them caused the decision for leaving after school is finished.
The Hawks had improved immeasurably during the Coach Graham’s tenure as it has been mentioned in previous articles as the win totals had doubled during those four campaigns from a 2 win first year to finish in the Sweet 16 this past season. A 2-1 loss to Progresso will give you an idea of how close this team was to making the Elite 8 in the Start of Texas.
The ReSporter next Canyon Lake game article will come in a little more than 2 months as Volleyball will be going strong as August gets hot.
CL’s Volleyball team is still the only group to win a district championship and also sports the best team win percentage as this next season will have a lot of Freshman that will be classified as Sophomores as well as having several players that look to make a run for more accolades.
The ReSporter was able to catch up with Coach Paisley for a precursor for this coming school year.
The ReSporter wanted to spend some time going back to Round-Ball for the Girls and Boys teams.
