CL Hawks JV win 10th game in a row over Bandera as the Lake’s Defense took center stage in grinding out this win, 33-26.

“We did not hit our shots,” Head JV Coach Hooper said. “We grinded out a win and sometimes it is not pretty but we will take it.”

Spoken like a Dad of the 7 ugly ducklings while trying to put make-up on those Hawks.


Hawks Go Streaken in Win over Bandera, 56-39

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

Rory Preiss has 8th straight game with double digit scoring

Canyon Lake beat Bandera and now enjoys a 2-1 District 28-4A record as they wait for a State Ranked Boerne team on next Friday.

The Hawks did not look sharp in this win but there were times not to long ago that CL’s basketball team would have taken any type of victory in district play.

“We played with great effort and energy,” Head Coach Lucas Chapman said. “Our defense was ok but we had too many turnovers and too many missed shots.”

But a win is a win and that will have to suffice even when the team is not playing at their peak level.

With these two district wins, Canyon Lake has already tied or beaten 5 other Hawk years in Basketball lore for victories in district play.

This conquest tied last year’s total and the next win, Canyon Lake, will be tied with the all-time best win total in Hawk history at 14. The 2008-09 Hawk team stood with that total in the Hawks 2nd year of play.


Hawks Fall Flat in Loss to Fredericksburg, 56-34

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

Caimen McDonough is surrounded by Orange in earlier game this season.

Canyon Lake fell flat in loss to Fredericksburg, 56-34, as the Hawks will go back to work this Friday when Bandera comes to town.

Alternative Pest Control says          Go Hawks

Fredericksburg beat Bandera, 73-22 giving the Hawks a bragging point in that they scored 12 points more than the Bulldogs.

Not what most teams need to be contemplating but CL had a chance to have a win that they could point to in giving them some stature. That game will have to wait a while longer.

Rory Preiss was the only Hawk to get into double digit scoring with 11 points and leading the team accounting for 8 rebounds.

Preiss has averaged 14 points in his past 7 games where he has reached double digit points consecutively.

Not much else to see hear as Canyon Lake will need to forget this game quickly as a 34 point game will not instill much confidence in this offense.

This week’s Friday game will be broadcast on the CLB network and you can get linked up on this site if you are wanting to hear or see how Canyon Lake will respond after this loss.

Go Hawks!!

CL Ladies Lose to Billies, 49-34

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

Head Girl’s Basketball Coach Zach Burleson looking for answers in district play

The Canyon Lake Lady Basketball team is showing improvement within one of the toughest districts in Texas this year.

The Hawks lost to the Billies by 14 points and showed some spark after a blow out loss during the Burnet Tournament during the Christmas break. In that contest, CL was on the short end losing, 61-23.

Canyon Lake cannot afford a lost quarter during these games as the 3 points scored in the 3rd quarter contributed to this loss.
Both Fredericksburg games still had the Billies controlling the boards as the Hawks had just 15 total rebounds which was about what CL had in that first game only 12 bounds were realized.

Reagan Heun finished with 18 points as CL will now prepare for another tough opponent this Friday when they travel to Bandera.

Canyon Lake has had a 3rd quarter just like the one the Hawks administered to Hondo on Friday after beating the Owls, 56-41 for their first district win.

On Tuesday of this week, Canyon Lake came out of their halftime locker room down just two points against Wimberley, 25-23 and then proceeded to hand over the keys to their car to the Texans after suffering a 17 point downfall and eventual loss during that 3rd quarter game.

This time, Canyon Lake found that they could administer that same type of pain to Hondo by outscoring the Owls 18 points and turning a 3 point deficit to a 15 point advantage to open the second half.

Hawk Soccer is going well early in the season as both Girls and Boys have shown flashes of break out games.

Girls Soccer finished 2nd in the Pleasanton Tournament and just missed a chance for a 1st Place Trophy.

“We did well this past weekend by achieving a second place finish,” Head Coach Ryan Tierney stated. The girls won their first game against Beeville Jones, 4-0 and then beat Pleasanton, 2-1.”

Rachel Bennett had 2 goals in that first game and Chloe Cullen and Brandi Schimonsky finished out the scoring with a goal a piece.

Canyon Lake ran out of gas in comeback losing to Navarro last Friday, 62-55.

The Hawks had their tank go dry in the 2nd quarter scoring 7 points and leaving CL needing more petro in order for completing a comeback win.

That 7 point deficit at half had the Panthers keeping the pressure on as they increased their lead to 11 points with 4 minutes remaining in the game.


CLJV Pulls Away in 13 Point Win over Navarro, 51-38

Saturday, January 7th, 2017

Sharpshooter Sam Schimank scored 16 points in Win over Navarro

Canyon Lake’s JV continues to play at a high plateau after another convincing battle this time against the Navarro Panthers winning, 51-38 on the road last Friday night.

The scoring was dominated by Sam Schimank from the outside and Michael Harwell from the inside. Both players had their moments that helped carry the Hawks to this win after starting the tip-off with a tie ending the first quarter 13 all.

From there to the final horn, CL was in total control with a mind boggling 18 steals. In the first half Canyon Lake had 13 of those thefts which kept the Panthers with their paws trying to pass or shoot the ball.

That defense was impressive but the offense did their job as well with 13 assists and getting the ball to an open man paid dividends as all the guards combined for every assist.

Harwell was the main Hawk with the steals totaling 6 and leading the team cleaning the glass with 9 for this 13 point victory.


CLJV Pound the Poteet Aggies, 63-29

The Hawk JV team crushed the Poteet Aggies last Tuesday after storming to a 17-4 first quarter and then coasting to the game’s end winning, 63-29.

Three CL players had double figure scoring with Hank Jordan accumulated 19, Michael Harwell scored 15 and Anthony Zavala was strong off the bench finishing with 10 points and 8 rebounds.

“I’m happy with the win,” Harwell started on how this team will take this game into the next two contests. “I am looking forward to seeing us play really well as a team.”

Harwell reminds you of the ‘Ever Ready Battery’ commercial as there is non-stop action when this young man goes after the rock.


CL Hawks Have Complete Win over Poteet, 76-39

Wednesday, January 4th, 2017

Canyon Lake looked good in beating the Aggies this past Tuesday night at the Hawk Nest with a satisfying, 76-39 victory.

“I was worried about this game going in,” Head Coach Luke Chapman recalled. “We did a good job and played with emotion and energy and sustained it throughout the whole game.”

The Hawks had 3 players reach double figures with 14 coming from a starter in Rory Preiss and the other two players shared 11 points a piece coming off the bench.

Charlie McIntosh and Bennie Brownlee were those players that continued their pressure on the Aggies after scoring 22 combined points coming off the bench.
