The CL Hawk’s errors matched the Boerne Greyhounds runs in an opening District 28-4A loss at the Hawk Nest on Tuesday night, 6-3.

Canyon Lake’s bats were also quiet for the first 6 innings as the only Hawk inning that had pressure on Boerne happened in the 4th inning when Marley Carrizales led off the inning with the first hit and two stolen bases had this CL runner on third base.

A strikeout ended that threat and then the Hawks 10 consecutive outs until a one out single in the bottom of the 7th frame.


CL Hawks Baseball Takes another Loss from Boerne, 10-1

Ranger Cleaners says Go Hawks!!

Canyon Lake could only scratch off one run in their second run-ruled game game with the Boerne Greyhounds, 10-1.

There were two outs when Avery Montgomery reached base base on the Greyhound’s short-stop error.

JT Greene followed with a walk which advanced Montgomery with two on and two outs.

Enter Caleb Williams with a line drive single to left field to score Montgomery but that would be the extent of the damage on this night.

Canyon Lake’s Softball Team had a chance to play a game against the Lady Hawk’s from days gone by as the the Alumni game was enjoyed by all on a Saturday with food and honoring two former students.

This was a Saturday game that allowed the Softball and Canyon Lake High School a chance to pay respects for two recent events.

The loss of Heather St. John to cancer last August 15, 2016 and Megan Browning who lost her life in a car accident this past January 15, 2017.

Both of these young ladies had played Softball as well as other sports during their time at Canyon Lake.

Megan Browning and Heather St. John were both teammates during Canyon Lake’s playoff run in 2011 and many of these alumnus ladies knew and played with Browning and St. John while in high school.

The CL Hawks started their district playing a perennial powerhouse in Boerne and the Greyhounds played like one on Friday night as they got on their Greyhound for home after winning, 11-0.

Canyon Lake were put in molasses early as the Greyhounds were off and running in the first inning and never stopped with their two home-runs that ended up being enough to close up shop for another day.

“We are going to stay with our process and eventually it will get here,” Head Coach Trent Dunavant stated. “We will work on our fundamentals until we are blue in our face.”

Canyon Lake Boys Soccer ended their regular season much like they started after a blowout loss to Fredericksburg, 6-1 last Friday.

The Hawks had a total of two games that was lost by more than 2 goals and it was the opening and closing nights for their regular season production.

Canyon Lake was not shut-out for this season as the Billies were on a 3 game shut-out streak that was stopped at the 31:38 mark when Grayson Rohrbacher scored the first goal in the contest.

Unfortunately for CL the offense would be a no-show for the rest of this battle and now the Hawks will try to repeat what they did last time they had a loss by more than 1 goal.


Hawks Finish Tourney on an Upbeat, Beat Jourdanton, 3-0

Canyon Lake showed signs of life after blanking Jourdanton in their last tournament game in Somerset, 3-0.

“We played two games real well,” Head Coach Trent Dunavant surmised. “In our loss to Somerset our pitching did not have a walk and everything they (Somerset) got they earned.”

CL had a stellar performance from the mound in the second game that has given that glimmer of hope that this season has a chance of pulling out better than their record indicates.

“Our team is not set up for having success in a tournament format,” Coach Dunavant said. “You play a lot of games in a few days and we do not have the depth on defense or on the mound….if we bring in a player in the field to pitch then we just had one of our best fielders switched and having a different player in that vacated spot will cause mistakes because of not being used to that position.”

Canyon Lake’s Boys Soccer look to finish strong after beating Bandera, 2-0 on Friday night.

The Hawks will now take a week off and welcome Fredericksburg to the Hawk Nest this coming Friday for a chance to reverse an earlier one goal loss to the Billies.

CL has not been in this stratosphere ever and now will see what weightlessness might feel like with a win over the Billies.

Take in a 14-5-2 overall record and now with a very respectable 3-2-2 district number going into this last game.

Grayson Rohrbacher was on his game again, scoring 2 goals while the Hawks defense only allowed two shots on goal with Brayden Damico taking care of those shots for the shut out.
