Hawks after Winning Silver Bracket at Rattler Tournament

Canyon Lake won the Silver Bracket Championship in the San Marcos Rattler Tournament that finished on Saturday.

“We won the Bronze bracket last year and we wanted to bring some hardware home tonight,” Head Coach Kim Paisley said proudly.

The Hawks swept three games on Saturday winning the final over 6A Weatherford Kangaroos in three sets.

A good week of Volleyball for the Hawks after upping their schedule to play in last week’s NEISD Tournament against larger schools.

“This was a good day…..great day,” Coach Paisley said as her voice was leaving her. “Hannah’s (Wunderlich) serving was on fire, she had good muscle memory and she was on fire….our defense is getting better and we are heading in the right direction.”

Blanco was able to reload much quicker than Canyon Lake as the Hawks could not find their revolver in time for the game and when they did it would not shoot in their opening loss, 14-0.

“I loved the effort,” Head Coach Charley Drum said. “We were just not finishing and had crucial mistakes.”

Canyon Lake rebounded last season after having an offense that looked similar to this year’s start.

“We will get better and this game was night and day different from last year,” Coach Drum continued. “I am proud of these young kids and we just have to get better every week as many of them found out about Friday night lights and our confidence will get better.”

The season opener for the 2015 Freshman football season kicked off Friday at Lago Vista’s brand new beautiful High School as the Canyon Lake Hawk freshman took on the Lago Vista JV Gold Vikings.

The Vikings won the coin toss and at the time no one knew, but it would be the Vikings last time in which they won anything.

On the opening possession for Lago Vista, on a 3rd and nine, Trenton Lorett swooped down and picked off a pass on the Canyon Lake 42 yard line and sent the Vikings packing.

On the Hawk’s first possession after a false start from an eager offensive line, the O-line plowed head first into the Vikings defense on three consecutive plays and drove the defense back 55 yards when Lorett scored from 5 yards out and added his own 2 point conversion. 8-0 Hawks.

Canyon Lake Junior Varsity went through the motions for their opener with Blanco as turnovers spelled dome for any chance of a comeback in their 10 point loss, 24-14.

The Hawks had the ball first and after three running plays with the longest being 2 yards a punt was needed.

“Turnovers and we did not do a good job of executing,” Head JV Coach John Barthels started. “We practiced against the Varsity this week and we just did not come out with that same intensity and did not respond well.”

Blanco then marched down to the Hawk 2 yard line when they fumbled away a chance for their first score of the season and CL staved off that early damage.

Canyon Lake Hawks finish NEISD with win over SA Lee as they will enter their last phase of non-district games in a couple of weeks.

“We finished the tournament with a 3-5 record and we had some great games even though we lost some,” Head Coach Kim Paisley said. “The type of teams we played, we will not see that type of team for the rest of this season.”

Coach Paisley had a reason for her optimism with the Hawks record as each team played was in the largest private school size or a 6A school.

CL Hawks Improve after First Scrimmage

Canyon Lake vs Medina Valley Panthers

Canyon Lake Football served up a big glass TD’s to the Panthers.

The second and final scrimmage of the 2105 Hawk football season got under way this past Thursday at 5pm in Castroville as the 5-A Medina Valley Panthers took on the 4-A Canyon Lake Hawks on a breezy and cooler than expected night for high school football in August.

When this night was over and was all said and done, the Panthers were glad to see the Hawks leave.

The evening started with a scrimmage format, having the field split into two with each team starting on their 45 yard line in opposite directions with a 30 minute continuous running clock.

The idea with the running clock was to get as many plays as possible during that time frame.

The Junior Varsity started on defense and while the freshman started on offense to begin the evening and it wasn’t long before both Hawk teams had scored.

The JV’s defensive CB Jesse Andrade cut in front of a Panther wide receiver in the flats and picked off the pass at full speed and had more open real-estate in front of him than what Donald Trump owns.

“I just covered my area like coaches had been teaching us all month and closed the distance with the receiver as fast as I could and cut him off and grabbed the ball” said Andrade.

There wasn’t a Panther around for fifteen yards in any direction as the whistle blew to end the play.

Canyon Lake beat the Lockhart Lions on Tuesday night in a 3 game sweep as they will begin a 3 day NEISD Tournament starting this Thursday.

The Hawks had some good news as the injury to Addison Farley might not be as bad as first thought and an earlier return possible.

CL did take care of business against Lockhart as the Hawks improved their record to 7-2 with the sweep, 25-14, 25-11, and 25-23.

Canyon Lake ended the first game with an 8-2 run with their 11 point win when Hannah Wunderlich finished the Lions off with a kill and serving ace.

Hawks hold their own in scrimmage with Gonzales last Friday at Hawk Stadium.

Canyon Lake will be using younger players when the season starts in two weeks and that was certainly noted in the Friday scrimmage.

“I was pleased on how our scrimmage went,” Head Coach Charley Drum started. “We were wide eyed and I thought we matched them punch for punch.”

With the youth age upon the Hawks being wide eyed is certainly something that might have been expected as Canyon Lake suited up some players that were waiting another 2 weeks last season as 8th graders to find their jersey number.

A well oiled machine will not be expected at this time of year as the Hawks also search for a quarterback and two running backs lost in last year’s senior class.

Between those players lost, Canyon Lake, will need to replace 74% of their rushing yards and a whopping 86% of yards gained by the forward pass.

The Hawks started an early game against Boerne Geneva with two hard fought wins, 25-20 and 28-26.

That first game was nip and tuck as both teams could not get separation finding themselves tied, 10-10.

With a 16-13 lead, Faith Hasness service was able to expand the lead to, 21-14 with two kills from Addison Farley, a block with Emma Gray, and a Hasness ace along with good passing.

In the second game, Canyon Lake and Geneva were tied 10 times, the largest lead for CL was 23-20 with Gray getting the final kill for the win.

Farley and Bailey Drum both chimed in with 12 kills in the Hawks next game against district foe, Cuero.
