Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

Jaren Marmolejo is ready to go the distance.

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.

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.

      GO Canyon Lake!!

Canyon Lake had a hard time getting home on Thursday night as their bus had to take on that furious wind after a 3rd place finish for the Varsity and a 2nd place trophy for the Junior Varsity.

Lester Boehm is now entrenched in 3rd place for CL as he won the 200 meter dash with a time, 22.93 and on a calm night might have had this athlete moving even further up the pack. The good news is having another chance this Thursday in Lockhart.

CL Hawks Bats finally came out of the cave in the 5th inning for a win over the Hondo Owls, 13-6.

Canyon Lake has started district with two games where those bats have been waiting for the sun to rise before they exit their cave and on this night the Hawks still had enough time to catch some mosquitoes as they responded with 12 runs in their last three stanzas.

An Owl was having a feast with a 4-1 lead going into the 5th inning but having insects for dinner did not sit well as those Hawk Bats came alive to swallow up all of the mosquitoes for an eventual eat-a-way win. (A Bat cam eat up to 1000 mosquitoes in one hour.)


Lady Hawks Track goes Dancing at the Texan Relays

Alysha Perez sets new mark in 100 meter dash at Texan Relays

Canyon Lake went dancing at the Texan Relays in Wimberley last Thursday as all the teams performed well with some key athletes missing due to Dancing Competition that was scheduled that same day.

“I was proud of our efforts again on Thursday,” Head Girls Track Coach John Barthels stated. “We had a decent effort in basically two day practice, post spring break week and I was impressed with several of the results going into the wind.”

That wind was consistent throughout the meet and it showed no relief for those events that would have those runners heading south.

Skylar Hurst was high point once again with 26 points followed by Alysha Perez’s 19 points after shattering the 100 meter dash record by two tenths of a second. These same two students had first place finishes along with the 4×100 relay team.

“Obviously our 100 and 100 hurdle times improved with the wind at our backs,” Coach Barthels continued. “The form looked good from Alysha (Perez) in the 100 and she won so that was great.”
