There was no drama in Friday night’s game with La Vernia, as Canyon Lake found that a mean Bear is a bad Bear losing, 10-0.

Canyon Lake first five district games had been decided in the last innings but on this night La Vernia decided to knock out the Hawks and in that 5th inning, if something could go wrong, then it did.

The game was controlled by both pitchers as Alexis Robinson was on fire, striking out 8 Bears in her 4 innings of work.

Two out of three batters in each inning was a strike out. It was a dominating time as La Vernia just could not catch up to Robinson’s fast ball.

Canyon Lake is now brushing up on this next couple of weeks as the Hawk Coaches will be mix and matching which events to compete in when District 26-4A Meet comes calling in April.

The Hawks had some athletes not in attendance in Wimberley as they will be competing in Austin for the Texas Relays instead of running in last night’s Meet.

Evan Schuller and Joe Marple were high scorers last night scoring 10.5 and 14 points respectfully. Schuller best was a 2nd place finish in the Triple Jump as he is still right at the doorstep of getting over the 40 foot mark.

Marple got 12 of his points with the hurdle runs and Gerrit Wilkins finished first on his 110 Hurdle Run.

On the Girls side, Bailey Drum was high point scoring 22 points with high finishes in the Triple Jump and Hurdle runs. Mariah Ellis was second getting 19 points for the Hawks.

Canyon Lake will be in Wimberley next Wednesday for a tune up meet before district.

Girls Golf finished final tournament and will be back in the hunt next week for District 26-4A play

Golf was in full swing again this week as both the Girls and Boys played in Burnet last Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Girls team only had three girls playing and did not qualify for a team score.

Sam York, of the three ladies, finished with the best score 109 as Kyndle Smith 128 and Melissa Gaxiola 130 finished for their scores.

CL Boys team also was shy of one golfer but still had enough for a team finish as Skyler Tschoepe finished 2nd shooting a 75 for his round.

 7th Place Finish
 Skyler Tschoepe       75   2nd Medalist
 Bennie Brownlee      103
 Sam Sheppard         103
 Jericho Anderson     105
 total                386

Both teams will be in action next week for District 26-4A competition.

Canyon Lake finished their scoring drought with the 34th inning but that run was still not enough to stop Wimberley, losing 6-1 on Tuesday night.

The Hawks are still trying to find a remedy for their offensive woes as they will hopefully find lightning in a bottle when they face La Vernia this Friday.

“We have tried everything,” Head Baseball Coach Trent Dunavant said. “You can’t reinvent the wheel and we are not playing bad and we had some good pitching….they (Wimberley) did things a little better.”

No errors but Wimberley kept the pressure up and finally broke through from the fifth inning on, scoring 6 runs in those final three innings.

It is the little things that Canyon Lake just cannot get going at right times to help in run production.

“We can’t get a bunt when we need to move a player in a position to score,” Coach Dunavant continued. “This is all mental and not a mechanical thing…everybody (the players) knows what has been going on and they start to press when they go to bat.”


Hawk’s One Act Play Goes 10 Innings in Win over Wimberley

The high drama was in action once again at the Hawk Softball Diamond, as Canyon Lake continued their suspenseful season winning in the 10th inning over Wimberley, 6-5.

CL was never in the lead in this game until it counted, the end of the third extra inning.

The bottom of the batting order did most of the damage on this night as Cameron Berger worked a one out walk in the 10th inning.

Berger has a little over 2 percent chance of walking as this free pass was a thing of beauty with that final result a win. It was Berger’s 4th walk in her career and 3rd one for this year in over 150 at bats.

Berger doesn’t like to walk, but would rather run, when she can be that winning score in extra innings.

Lizzy Henderson was next and had 2 hits already in this game but was called upon to sacrifice Berger over to second base which she did like a pro.

Now with Berger on second, it was time for Tiare Kacir to give Canyon Lake another district win with a sharp single (her second hit of the game) between second and first base to drive home the winning run on a 2 strike pitch and send the Texans home.

Canyon Lake’s baseball team name has now been introduced in the definition for, futility, as the Hawks have now been shut-out 4 straight games, 2-0 in Cuero last Friday.

CL has a batting average of .106 during this streak as the Hawk pitchers had another game keeping Canyon Lake close enough for a win as their bats have grown cold.

The two pitchers that started those last two games were the only Hawks to have a hit in this game, Cody Powell with a double.

Lauren Mentzer comes on to relieve Alexis Robinson and gets her first district win.

Canyon Lake won another thriller this time over Cuero to draw their district record to even (2-2) at the conclusion of their second week of  district competition, 7-6.

“I had a good feeling about this game,” Head Coach John Gallagher started. “They kept moving the game up until they decided on a 2pm start. “I also felt good with our 5-1 lead.”

“Being on the road and seeing a team we had not seen before, tells you how good our team stayed together even after those errors that helped tie the score, they did not fold.”

This time, the Hawks, called on Freshman Lauren Mentzer in the 5th inning and she did not give up a hit with her stint in the circle.

“Lauren (Mentzer) came on and did a good job,” Coach Gallagher said the obvious.

Mentzer only had one walk in her 3 innings which gave Canyon Lake something that you just can’t emphasize enough.


Canyon Lake Was One Run Short in Loss to Navarro, 1-0

Cody Powell has hard luck loss after striking out 13 Panthers on Tuesday night

Cody Powell has hard luck loss after striking out 13 Panthers on Tuesday night

Canyon Lake lost a pitching duel on Tuesday night as Navarro scored their one run in the top of the first and made it stand as Senior Cody Powell finished with 13 strikeouts in this affair, 1-0.

The Hawks have now gone three games without a run and will need to dig deep to get out of their funk before the Friday game in Cuero.

“If we don’t score runs then we will not win,” Head Coach Trent Dunavant said staring into the infield. “We have to find some way to get them (runners) in and do something…a strikeout is the worst outcome in those situations and we just could not make it happen.”

Navarro’s Ripke matched Powell’s 13 strikeouts and threw 16 first pitch strikes being ahead in the count for most of the night.

“We struck out way too many times tonight,” Dunavant said.


Softball: Hawks ‘Finish’ in Win over Navarro, 3-2

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

Canyon Lake will need to take classes on what it takes to blow out a team as the Hawks once again played with danger, winning with the bases loaded over Navarro, 3-2.

Alexis Robinson has her arm iced down because of how hard she hit her home-run!!

Alexis Robinson has her arm iced down because of how hard she hit her home-run!!

“It was obviously a big motivator and it will help put us up mentally as we go into our game Friday,” Head Coach John Gallagher said. “We had been in an uphill battle and we were just not finishing.”

Navarro scored one run in the second and third innings after the first batter led off with a walk, which resulted in pressure for CL as they would have to beat the Panthers Ace Cowan with very little being shown in those first three innings.

Kirsten Jones was the spark in that fourth inning as she had a perfect bunt single with one out to get things going. Jones extended her hitting streak to four games with the hit.

Alexis Robinson would be the Hawks next hitter and a 7 pitch battle ended with a shot over the left field fence where cars driving into the sports complex might have had a chance of reported seeing ‘softball’ size hail falling.

“I was expecting to hit the ball and just make contact,” Robinson said. “I wasn’t expecting a home run.”
