Maggie Banks puts a no-hitter on resume in win over Hondo

The Hawk’s kicked the Owls out of their nest with a resounding no-hit win, 11-0 on Thursday night that kept this young club on the inside track for a, 2nd place District 28-4A finish.

“The girls played a great game with no let down in intensity after a tough loss in Boerne, Head Coach John Gallagher stated. “Maggie Banks pitched a gem backed by some solid defensive plays.”
With a week left in the regular season, Canyon Lake will now set their sights on a game in Fredericksburg on Tuesday. A victory will solidify that 2nd seed for the playoffs as the Hawks will finally get a playoff game on their resume.

It has been 5 years since the Softball contingent was in the playoffs and after a complete game win over Hondo, the Hawks had all parts of their game in sync with no errors, plenty of offense, and a pitching performance that had the visitors getting no hits.

Canyon Lake finished district in 3rd place and will be taking 16 athletes to their home track field for the Area Meet on April 19th.

“The district meet went about how we had expected,” Head Coach Troy Moses said. “We have a lot of kids advancing to Area and with a great chance at advancing to regionals…..we have a week to get a little better.”

Caimen McDonough racked up 24 points and Heath McDonough followed with 21 points as these multi-event athletes will be competing in multiple areas for a chance of making Region Meet the last part of April.

Caimen will represent CL in both hurdle runs and will be joining his brother (Heath) in the high jump.

Canyon Lake’s Soccer quest came to an end after a hard fought loss to Progresso, 2-1 at Veteran Memorial Stadium in McAllen.

“This was a fast team and we knew that coming into the game,” Head Coach Warren Graham assessed. “We did a good job of staying in front of them and I am happy with the way we played and we have nothing to be ashamed of.”

Canyon Lake are now occupying 2nd place in District 28-4A after a win over Bandera, 9-6 on Tuesday night.

“We played well early in getting up, 7-0,” Head Coach John Gallagher started. “I think we relaxed and Bandera got four runs off two of our errors…. but we were able to put up two more runs in the 7th.”

Coach Gallagher finished, “(Maddy) Puente threw well into the 5th (inning) and (Maggie) Banks closed for us.”


CL Boys Varsity Finish 2nd as they Prepare for District 28-4A Meet

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

Jaren Marmolejo is ready to go the distance.

The Boy’s Track Team both hit triple digits against larger schools last Thursday in Lockhart Lion Relays.

The Junior Varsity scored 129 points, finishing behind Killeen and Canyon High School. CL’s Varsity beat Canyon High School  while Killeen ran away on this night with 180 points.

“I thought that the Lockhart Meet went just as we would hope.   We are starting to see improvement on almost every effort,” Head Coach Troy Moses stated. “This is what we want as we approach the district track meet.  Everything we do all year is to make sure we are competing at our best come the district meet. I am very confident right now as the district meet is only 5 days away.”

Cody Kline and Heath McDonough were high point makers with 22 and 23 respectfully. Caimen McDonough just missed out on passing his brother and Greyson Lee was second for the JV squad.


CL Lady Hawks Lock in 3rd Place in Lockhart Relays

Junior Skylar Hurst after tough day on Cinders

CL Lady Hawks finished 3rd with the Junior Varsity and Varsity in Lockhart last Thursday as Canyon Lake and Gonzales were the only schools that were below 5A in size for the 7 team meet.

That will go a far way as the Hawks now start preparing for District 28-4A next Wednesday and Thursday.

Freshman Madison Churbe would finish high point for the Varsity while Elena Vargas would finish at the top for the JV crew.

This Meet had a different format than previous track & field get togethers….the Girls had their running events while the Boys were busy in their Field Event mantra.

That made those events involving running having a much smaller window of rest which would be detrimental for having personal bests.

It was not an April Fool’s Win for CL Hawks Boys Soccer after taking the second round game from 4th Ranked Salado at Manor High School last Friday night, 2-1.

This was by far the biggest win in any sport up to this point in Hawk history as the Boy’s Soccer team is only in their second year of qualifying for the playoffs and after drawing a bye for the first round would then have to lock horns with the State Ranked Salado Eagles.

How good was Salado? Their 2 losses coming into this contest was against a 6A Harker Heights school and an undefeated private school called KIPP Austin.

CL Hawks continue their climb into the light of day as their loss showed that better things might be on the horizon after a tough loss to Fredericksburg, 4-3.

“Our effort was outstanding and I think they are finally getting it,” Head Coach Trent Dunavant started. “The young guys are feeling comfortable and are laying a good foundation…..we’re still young and we just needed a couple of breaks.”

The Billies started first with 3 singles in the first with an error thrown in for seasoning and Canyon Lake started in a hole, 2-0.

Canyon Lake continues their chase for District 28-4A supremacy after squeaking out a win over Fredericksburg, 4-3 at the Hawk Nest Friday night.

“This was our best defensive game we have played,” Head Coach John Gallagher fielded. “All we did this past week was hitting and defense….they hit 150 times in the batting cages and they fielded ground-balls all week long.”

The Hawks started this battle with a good offense as the bottom of that first inning had consecutive doubles by Maddy Puente and Lauren Mentzer after Bailey Bryan started the fireworks with a single.
