Canyon Lake swept the Poth Pirates as the Freshman and Junior Varsity both took care of the Pirates in making them walk the plank.

The Freshman crew lost their first game of the year against Clemens but have continued to win ever since, with great passing skills that has helped supply the Hawks Varsity as this season has continued.

CL Freshman won, 25-12, 24-26, and 25-22 as the last two sets only had a team go up to 6 points before Poth would pull back into the fray of competition.

“The fans got their money’s worth,” Head Freshman Coach Tosha Ridgeway said with a relieved look. “We try not to look and pay attention to the score because they know that no lead is comfortable.”

The Hawks flew into Poth and feasted on the Pirates, as the Freshman, Junior Varsity, and Varsity all flew out with wins.

Canyon Lake’s Varsity jumped out quickly on Poth in their first set by scoring 13 points off of serves with the Hawks first four servers.

Senior Regan Mickey and Faith Hasness had an opportunity of serving 5 times while Hanna White crossed the serving line for 3 points.

Those rallies allowed CL to increase their lead to 10 points, 19-9 and cruise to a final score of 25-17.

Only 2 service errors and a total of 5 unforced turnovers was the key to this fast start.

The Varsity carried that momentum into their next set with another convincing, 25-18 victory in much the same fashion.

Canyon Lake had a two act play on their final day of Volleyball in the NEISD Tournament finishing with a win after two losses.

The Hawks started Saturday with a decent and competitive loss to 6A SA Madison losing 1-2.

Then a turnaround game with East Bernard with no time to rest and the Brahmas took advantage with a 2 set sweep.

That last set was a scorcher as the Hawks only mustered mayonnaise with 5 total points making for a sloppy sandwich and an upset stomach.

“Let’s just say we had a heart to heart discussion,” Head Coach Kim Paisley said eloquently. “We had some tactics for Tivy and it did great and we were fired up to play them (Kerrville).

“I don’t want to have to call a time out tomorrow and ask our team to get intense,” Head Coach Kim Paisley said adamantly. “I want us to play with more consistency and more confident.”

Canyon Lake also closed their exhibition season with La Vernia as the overall picture was positive with the Hawks doing well in several areas with the Sub-Varsity squads while the Hawk Varsity played a great set of plays in this contest.

“I think we came out better as we stepped up our competition while learning a valuable lesson on not putting them away,” Head Coach Charlie Drum started.

After having several plays of scrimmage the two teams had two 12 minute running clock to close the final part of the affair.

The Hawks started their play by dominating both defensively and offensively. With the first 3 Bear possessions being stopped by 2 interceptions and one recovered fumble.

That 8 point lead continued with Lockhart up 18-10 with momentum to go another game into the set.

CL was not having a good time for that part of the game by committing 3 service errors and another 8 unforced errors during this fog driven game.

Canyon Lake Volleyball finished Tex-Fest Tournament with a 5-1 record and continues to improve during pre-district after beating Bastrop to end their Saturday play.

“I felt like we played together but we still have a lot to work on,” Head Volleyball Coach Kim Paisley said. “We had better competition today (Saturday) and I hope Laredo United wins.”

Laredo United was the one loss in tournament play as this 6A school had all the tools in that first matchup with the Hawks beating CL, 25-18 and 25-14/

The Hawks played a 5A school in Bastrop later Saturday and swept their opponent, 25-22 and 25-20.

“This afternoon we were blah,” Coach Paisley said matter of factly. “But a win is a win but we just did not have any intensity….I can’t have the intensity the team has to carry that on their on.”

Canyon Lake Volleyball rebounded by winning 4 games on opening day at Wimberley Tex-Fest tournament.

Hollums was able to get her two aces in during that comeback as Kaylie Duke and Regan Mickey helped with a kill each.

Volleyball: CL Hawks Looking for Passing Grade in 0-2 Start

Go CL Hawks

Go CL Hawks

Canyon Lake started their 2016 campaign with two losses against Schertz Clemens and Liberty Hill on Monday at the Hawk Gym.

Clemens was lethal as the Hawks found it hard to get offensive points that was not a result of a service ace.

“Clemens came out dominating,” Head Coach Kim Paisley started. “Liberty Hill played them better than we did….we had too many errors.”

Canyon Lake was a step late or pass gone awry throughout the contest.

“We would have a great dig and then hit the ball out of bounds,” Coach Paisley lamented. “Our intensity level picked up after that first set, they will have to set themselves apart and show that they are ready to play.”


Mountain Valley Dominate SV Rangers in Win, 15-1

Saturday, May 14th, 2016


Mountain Valley Lady Hawks Softball Win District

                              Mountain Valley Lady Hawks Softball Win District

Mountain Valley took SV Rangers to the cleaners after swamping the home team, 15-1 in completing their undefeated season.

Earlier this year, the Hawks escaped with a 12-11 win over Smithson Valley, which was as close any team would get to Mountain Valley Middle School.

On Saturday, Mountain Valley had a statement game as they had seven outs in the 4 inning affair as the Hawks were capped with 5 runs in three of the four innings played.

Maddy Puente and Kensie Sayles combined for a 4 hitter in this mercy game with a total dominating win over the Rangers.

Last season, Mountain Valley was denied a first place finish by this same club as the Hawks had plenty motivation in wanting to complete this season with this victory.

Mountain Valley started off strong with a lead off walk and 5 singles while only having one out when Chelsea Tschoepe scored stopping the inning.

SV Rangers scratched across one run on two singles with their half of the first inning and that score would be all she wrote for the home team.

Going into the 3rd inning, the Hawks, started strong again when Puente was first up with a triple.

Adrianna Peaslee was up next with a single to drive in Puente. Peaslee finished the day with 3 hits and 3 rbi’s.

After a Hawk out, the next 5 batters would get a hit as this game was quickly getting out of hand with no MV batter being struck out.

Another 5 run inning and a comfortable 10-1 lead going into the bottom of the 3rd inning.

Mountain Valley changed pitchers as Puente took 3rd base while Kensie Sayles

would finish the next two innings.

In the bottom of the 3rd inning, Sayles started off allowing two singles. However, that would be the extent of the Rangers damage as two fly-outs and 4 strikeouts would put the Rangers out of their misery in those last two innings.

Only a walk in the bottom of the 4th as Sayles struck out the side against the other SV batters.

“I was going for spotting the ball,” Sayles said like a crafty pitcher that struck out the side to end the game.

Meanwhile, Mountain Valley would all but clinch their title with another 5 run 4th inning.

In what would be the last inning, Peaslee would touch all the bases after a line shot to left field that only had the outfield fence able to stop the screamer hit.

Peaslee was non-stop around the bases as she hit an inside the park homer to the delight of her teammates and the Hawk crowd.

“Amazing feeling,” Peaslee said with excitement. “I felt the hit and getting all the way home was amazing.”

“Last year, we lost to Smithson Valley, which kept us from winning it all,” Peaslee commented. “We wanted to get this win….this game we were ready to dominate and wanted to finish this season strong….we wanted to go all the way and not just halfway.”

The stunned silence from the Smithson Valley side of the stands was the price of admission on a day your Hawks would silence the Ranger team after turning this game to a laugher.

Only two Mountain Valley players were not able to get a base hit, but those two at bats did not go to waste as Landry Brown’s sacrifice flyball scored Madi Row who opened with a single.

Patrice Martinez was not allowed a chance to hit as she was walked and she stole a base and scored later in the inning.

If you want to know what dominance looks like then be sure you have some water close by as you try to digest these numbers:

                      game batting stats

 batting average   on base percentage   slugging percentage
       .720             .750                  .960

Those 4 hits Smithson Valley recorded for the game was less than the number of hits the Hawks accumulated in 3 of their innings.

This game was bound to be over after the 4th inning as there were other forces that would be sure this game went no further as the lightning and rain started soon after the umps called the game due to that 14 run lead.

“I hope I can be the best pitcher next year and strike out more players for outs,” Pitcher Peaslee said unabashedly.

A banner year for a group of ladies that dominated district opponents from Cuero to Middle Schools that feed into 6A schools.

That beacon of light seen by Hawk parent’s going home was the collective smiles of Canyon Lake Coaches who will be welcoming in a wealth of talent for the coming years.

Next school year can not get her soon enough for the sports addicts, but some of you can be excused if you want to take a couple of months off before making your trek to Canyon Lake High School

Congrats on another District Championship and Go Hawks!!
