Canyon Lake Lady’s Basketball lost their Friday game with Wimberley but with Gonzales taking some lumps from Navarro guaranteed CL to qualify after this Tuesday’s game.

Stay tuned to Hilltop and we will get you info on where and who the Hawks will be playing.


Likewise, the Boy’s Basketball squad finished the week 1-1 and will take on La Vernia this Tuesday.

The Hawks would settle things with an upset over the Bears this Tuesday.

Canyon Lake will have one other game a week later against Yoakum and the Bulldogs helped the Hawks cause immensely when they lost their game to Cuero last Friday.

The Boys team is coupled with CL’s Boys Soccer as the only team sport to yet make it out of district play by qualifying for playoffs.

Hawk Soccer has started to make some noise this season as they sport a 7-4 record and presently on a 5 game winning streak.

That will be the same until district starts up in two weeks and finding a way to also qualify for the playoffs would make this season one of the best in Hawk Sport’s history.

This week CL beat a high caliber team in San Marcos Academy on Tuesday and then followed that win with their first home win on Friday over Burnet.

CL’s Girls Soccer finished this past week with 2 ties with one of those games having the Hawks coming back from a 3 goal deficit.

Softball is still in exhibition stage with Harper’s game this Tuesday being the last game before contests start counting.

Baseball will also be starting this week as the Spring Schedule starts to get interesting.

The Varsity Tennis will have their first competition this Friday as they will travel to Georgetown’s Kerry Minzenmayer Classic.

There has to be a sport you can come and support this year’s Spring edition for Hawk sports.

Go Hawks!!

Lady Hawks Soccer Win by Tying Burnet, 3-3

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016


Canyon Lake Girls Soccer won a tied game when they came from 3 goals down to knot the score as time expired on Tuesday night against Burnet, 3-3.

Burnet jumped out to a 3 goal lead and had CL on their heels until an awakening happened allowing this comeback.

“The girls played aggressive last night and the first half was rough for us offensively,” Head Coach Ryan Tierney said. “We had opportunities but could not put the ball in the net.”

Coach Tierney was commenting on that first half where the Hawks found themselves digging a hole that would be hard to escape from.

“The girls dug deep and made a decision as a unit to fight,” Coach Tierney got excited. “Rachel Bennet sent a the ball to Meredith Ellery who then scored off her left foot and Captain Chloe Cullen fired a shot into the back of the net inside the 18 yard box bringing the score to 2-3.”

Canyon Lake had a decent week in court last week as both Varsity teams won needed games as their district race matures into the latter stages.

The Lady Hawks needed a win over Yoakum as they now have a legit chance of making the playoffs.

That chance will be front and center this Tuesday as CL will travel to Gonzales for another must win as it was the Apache’s who won the first contest the first of January.

Canyon Lake showed in their last game they have some fire power scoring over 70 points and having several players contributing.

That game will need to be repeated again this week for the Girls as they showed during the first round with a winnable game against Navarro.

Playing at home on Friday might be that little extra needed to carry that game in the win column for the home team.

A sweep will make a mark and a break even week will give the Hawks more must win games in the weeks to come.

Canyon Lake Boys finished the first round 3-3 and if that can be repeated then a ticket to the playoffs would be next.

The Hawks have proven they could win more as they too played Navarro to the end earlier this year.

For CL to realize a better record the Hawks will need to not let up on any quarter as last Friday’s game the energy level was good enough for Yoakum but that same energy will be losses to the 3 teams presently ahead of them in the standings.

This second round of games will have Navarro and Wimberley playing at the Hawk Nest and that ingredient might be a missing link that could carry CL to a surprising finish.

Girls Soccer finished last week with a 1-0-1 record and this team certainly broke out with a 9 goal game on Friday beating Pleasanton.

“This game was a great confidence booster for our team,” Head Coach Ryan Tierney said.  “Every game I ask my girls to go have fun playing the game they fell in love with.”

That was certainly evident in this win as Canyon Lake got a goal from six different ladies.

“I feel the girls genuinely love each other and want to see everyone be successful,” Coach Tierney said. “ This game proves we play a team game, the way it’s meant to be played.”

Coach Tierney was making a point on this years club. The Hawks will be on the road this week and both games are very winnable and if CL can get these two wins, then they will be 6-2-1 going into their last week of non-district games.

The Boys Soccer team finished 1-1 this past week after playing a potent Giddings team and then getting back on track with a win over Pleasanton.

CL Boys Soccer will be on the road this week with games with La Vernia and Lampasas as this non-district schedule will come to a close after next week’s games.

Canyon Lake presently sports a 3-4 record and will look to improve on that mark in these next 4 games.

Go Hawks!!

           Yoakum         @   CL Freshman        7:30pm   Girls   Basketball

The Hawks will make or break this week for both the Girls and Boys roundball as this Friday the Yoakum game will give a good indication on chances for this year having extra games for both clubs.

For the Lady Hawks, their game with Yoakum already has one game in the win column. This second game has to be even more convincing.

That would instill confidence for a team in need of that ingredient as CL engages their last round of district games.

For the Boys, Canyon Lake will have a chance of evening their district contests at 3-3 and with those three wins the Hawks can match their most wins for district conquests.

The ’09-’10 and last years club both reached the 3 win plateau leaving this set of games in reach for higher goals.

Canyon Lake has shown they can reach higher in the realm of games won and that might also help this year’s team to an actual playoff contest.

Finishing would be the operative word for the Hawks going into the next round of district games.

Start to finish, not only in a game but also in their quest of realizing a goal that has yet been reached.

More sports will start to get active as January comes into the latter stages.

For Soccer, the Hawks, have both boys and girls relishing with chances of making marks as district comes calling in February.

Right now CL has the Boys with a 2-4 record and girls wading the waters with a 2-3 stint so far.

Last week Boy’s Soccer had a 1-1 record with a win over Burnet and loss to Liberty Hill.

This week Canyon Lake will host Giddings on Tuesday for their first home game and then take the road once again to Pleasanton for another chance of beating the Eagles.

For the Girl’s Soccer Team, the Hawks scored 6 goals in their game with SA Cole.

Those scores came from 3 Sophomores as Alexa Ramos had a hat trick.

Canyon Lake finished their tournament in Pleasanton 2-1 giving the Hawks a 3-1 record for their week of play.

The Hawk Girl’s Soccer team will be on the road this Tuesday against La Vernia and then welcome their first home game on Friday when Pleasanton comes to town.

Softball will start their practice this week and will be preparing for their first scrimmages on February 4th.

Baseball and Track is also right around the corner with several Hawk teams ready for action.

Go Hawks!!

Hawks Celebrate in one of their 33 Victories this season.

                             Hawks Celebrate in one of their 33 Victories this season.

The Fall Season of 2015 had an historic moment as the CL Volleyball team pulled off a District Championship which was the first for the Hawk Nation.

If you were looking at teams for Canyon Lake and projecting the first team to get to that feat, then Volleyball would have been near the bottom as the Hawk District has been controlled by Wimberley and seeing a team upend their streak of District Championships would have been a hard sell.

Yes, Wimberley did not have a vintage year but CL’s Volleyball team would also reach the highest State Ranking for any sport when they topped out at No. 7 during this season.


Top 5 Games-2014-15 Year: Game 3

Friday, May 29th, 2015
Hawks Beat Fredericksburg for big win in last year's season.

Hawks lose to Wimberley for another close loss in last year’s season.

 Game 5: Canyon Lake   70   Yoakum          52              Basketball
 Game 4: Canyon Lake   vs.  Wimberley 25-21, 21-25, 25-23   Volleyball
 Game 3: Canyon Lake   49   Fredericksburg  31              Football

Canyon Lake had an up and down season so far up to this game with Fredericksburg and beating the Billies would go a long way in giving this team their confidence back with a total win via, offense, special teams, and defense (when they needed The stop).

Two years ago Fredericksburg beat CL at home and did not take any prisoners in this game, winning, 38-14.

This time, Canyon Lake returned the favor as the Hawks not only controlled the clock with their running game, but also had quick answer touchdowns via kick-off returns.

The Billies could not muster any momentum giving up those two special team scores and then add two costly fumbles and Canyon Lake would not look back.

One of those fumbles happened on the one inch line as a Billie lost the ball jumping over the goal line after a jarring hit.

Josh DeVries only had one carry at home in the loss, but on this night, DeVries ran for 120 yards and had Robert Woods join him when he broke the 100 yard barrier too.

Canyon Lake has now rushed for 661 yards the last two years as the Hawks have had success with Fredericksburg these past few years.

The number, 165 is what helped win this game as that number was the total yardage for the two kick-off returns by DeVries and Matt Adams.

Both returns were in the first half and both happened right when the Billies had taken a lead. The first was after a Billies field goal and then Adams return nullified a 17-14 Fredericksburg lead.

Canyon Lake would hold Fredericksburg after that second return and then score with just 1 second on the clock before halftime.

The Hawks would have the ball first to start the second stanza and after taking 7 minutes off the clock ran the score to, 35-17.

Defense would stop Freddie again and Canyon Lake would score again with a little over 3 minutes left in the third quarter, 42-17, giving your Hawks their 28 unanswered points.

Hayden Dubois would score again to finish the game, his fourth touchdown run for this game.

Special Teams:  No Punts and 2 kickoff returns.                     √
Offense: Controlled the clock 33:10 and Fredericksburg 14:50.       √
Defense: 2 stops saving a td and drive giving the CL a quick score. √

The win would turn out to be a game to get Canyon Lake in the Playoff door for the second year in a row.

CL had 7 losses and of those games the Hawks would lose by a touchdown or less in 6 of those evenings.

 Losses              Score               Difference
 Blanco              07-35                  -28
 Wimberley           27-28                  -01
 Lampasas            14-21                  -07
 Liberty Hill        14-19                  -05
 Taylor              31-33                  -02
 Boerne              35-42                  -07
 Rockport-Fulton     21-27                  -06 overtime

That first game with Blanco would be the only contest that Canyon Lake was a no-show and a play here and there could have had a team with a much better season record.

That would explain how Canyon Lake would score more points than they gave up with 2 more losses on their ledger. (365 offense– 310 defense)

This win was big and would set up another run in those playoffs!!

Go Hawks!!

Game 5: Canyon Lake 70 Yoakum 52    Basketball

Game 4 in the count down of the Top 5 games played this past season will certainly be a surprise to some of you since this game did not involve a Varsity team.

This year, Canyon Lake had many sub-varsity teams that finished at the top district races as Mountain Valley keeps feeding some salty classes to the halls in CL that are transferring to a sporting event.

The Hawks had a break out year in Volleyball this season, but many times when a Varsity team comes through with a good season, the Freshman and Junior Varsity might not be as talented.

You might say that those Varsity teams were successful because they needed those younger players to help get them in a better position to compete in those all important district games.

Wimberley has been a thorn in the side of Hawk fans ever since the first year of competition and this past season, the Junior Varsity made great strides as they too were a much improved group of ladies that will be ready to take the baton from those Senior Volleyball players.

Canyon Lake’s Varsity finished by hitting the 30 win plateau, but one of the better games played came during a home game against Wimberley.

The Varsity had an undefeated district record as did Wimberley in the first half of the round robin of district games and the stands would fill up with more people to ever witness a home game.

Hawks Fall Short in Playoff Bid, Losing to Liberty Hill, 2-0

Canyon Lake lost a hard fought Area Round Playoff against Liberty Hill, 2-0 last Thursday at The Hawk Stadium.

Liberty Hill had given up just 18 goals for the season as their defense was the difference in this game as the Panthers came out of the gates firing and going up 1-0 with less than a minute gone in the first half.

Another score five minutes into this game would be more than enough for a win as Canyon Lake threatened on several tries just coming up empty.

The Hawks had Alexa Ramos as their goalie which turned out to be a double edge sword as CL was also giving up one of their more accomplished scorers with the trade off.

A wind that was blowing south to north also caused some missed opportunities as Ramos kicks would clear the whole field allowing the Panthers goalie to retrieve the ball without a Hawk being able to run down the ball and a chance for a goal.
