Canyon Lake’s Softball Team had a chance to play a game against the Lady Hawk’s from days gone by as the the Alumni game was enjoyed by all on a Saturday with food and honoring two former students.

This was a Saturday game that allowed the Softball and Canyon Lake High School a chance to pay respects for two recent events.

The loss of Heather St. John to cancer last August 15, 2016 and Megan Browning who lost her life in a car accident this past January 15, 2017.

Both of these young ladies had played Softball as well as other sports during their time at Canyon Lake.

Megan Browning and Heather St. John were both teammates during Canyon Lake’s playoff run in 2011 and many of these alumnus ladies knew and played with Browning and St. John while in high school.


CL Hawks Softball: District 28-4A is Next

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

Marley Carrizales readies for district play next.

Canyon Lake’s Softball team fizzled out in their last tournament, played in San Marcos, as their first day of competition was their last day of play.

Those first round games were allotted a 55 minute time limit which had those contests being decided on some occasions with players in the line-up having just one trip to the plate.

The result of those contests will not be wins or losses since there would not be enough innings to qualify for an official game.

Case and point was Canyon Lake’s win over Fredericksburg. A win but not really as both teams were only a run apart when time was called and the Hawks coming to the plate in the bottom of the 3rd inning.

It would remind you of having your hair washed and then the hair stylist sending you outside because too much time elapsed. Not a pretty sight to say the least.


CL Hawks Still having Learning Steps in Loss to Texans, 7-3

The Lady Hawks have 3 losses now and two of those set-backs have come from the bats of  Wimberley, after the Texans ran out for 7 runs in the first 4 innings to coast for this win.

Canyon Lake was their own worst enemy as that first inning had two Hawk errors which led to those runs.

“We came out relaxed and focused, but we lost it early,” Head Coach John Gallagher said. “We are still in our learning steps and seeing how this team reacts in big games is what we are looking for.”

Last year, Canyon Lake’s Softball team finished up their pre-district with an impressive resume.

The rest of that story did not end as well as the team or fans wanted however.

The ReSporter wanted to delve into how this present group of players might fare given, so far, the same pre-district outcomes and what might be different between these two teams.

Lakeside Dog Grooming Says         Go Hawks!


Another busy week for the sports programs as spring is in the air with baseball and softball size hail. Just be sure to have cover when the hail stones look like a shot-put.

Baseball started this year in a mud hole and found it hard to get their vehicle out of that quagmire.

A well deserved win on Friday night showed hope that with a little repair the machinery will be humming by the time district play commences.

The Hawk Baseball crew will be in the Somerset Tournament starting on Thursday with games against Devine and Medina Valley that first day.

CLJV Baseball will play Wimberley on Monday and then off to the Canyon Tournament on Thursday.

Softball had a good week with wins over Burnet and Navarro and will now meet up with Wimberley this next Tuesday.

        Go Canyon Lake

This will be a huge game along with a trip to San Marcos for their last tournament of the season.

Their Pool of teams has Fredericksburg in the first round and that will give a showcase of what each of these two District 28-4A partners have before real games start in a couple of weeks.

The Lady Golf team did not have all present last week but will have their team ready for their Tournament in Wimberley on Monday while the Boys play at the Quick Sand Course on the next day.

Track & Field will travel to Bandera on Wednesday for a mid-week meet.

The Tracksters had a cool and rainy day in Fredericksburg on Saturday and will look to improve and close the gap on the Billies as they won the battles on Saturday against CL and two other District 28-4A schools in attendance.

The good news is that the Hawks found that they were also better than Bandera and Hondo and now have an inkling on how they will need to train and prepare for the District Meet in April.

So, there are a lot of tournaments for all the teams that use a bat this week.

     Alayna-Gayle says Go Hawks!

Soccer gets back in action after a bye date this past week.

The Boys had a huge tie against Fredericksburg as they solidified their playoff and now have a chance of improving their seeding.

Wimberley will be up first for both Girls and Boys teams. The Lady Soccer team played the Texans tough in their last contest and this week will travel the Back-Bone to play at their place.

Bandera will be the opponent this Friday as the Boy’s team will hope the third time is a charm after suffering a loss earlier this year at the Hawk Tournament and then going on the road to tie the Bulldogs in the first round of play.

The ladies beat the Bulldogs on the road in that first round and the Bandera Lady Soccer team will have a tough time winning on the road as CL will work on a victory as this district year quickly comes to a close.

This is by far the best Soccer Teams combined in Hawk history as it is shaping up as the second year in a row where both squads will be making Playoff T-Shirts this year.

A week of many games and events as Spring Break will in full bloom on that next week.

Catch an event and support the Hawks, between the Hawk Sports complex and Wimberley you will be able to good chance of seeing Canyon Lake in action.

Go Hawks!!

CL Hawks Breaks Tie, Beats Navarro, 5-4

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

The Hawks tied Navarro in their last tournament and with those tourney contests being timed, that game was called with neither team being allowed to go into extra innings.

This time around, Canyon Lake wanted to finish that game with a win and that was the result as CL continued their season by upping their winning/tying steak to 10 games.

“Great win,” Head Coach John Gallagher concluded. “We showed a different mentality, if we get behind then we are going to do something about it.”

Softball: Hawks Work on Puzzle Pieces in Win over Burnet, 10-5

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

Canyon Lake had a solid game in their win over Burnet as the Hawks manufactured 10 runs in the win as they focus on Navarro this coming Friday.

“We executed well early but we let up a bit and they had some big hits,” Head Coach John Gallagher said. “We got some players in to see how they would do in the field and with some at-bats.”

The Bulldogs were held to 4 hits but 3 of those safeties happen to sail over the outfield wall. There was some power in that line-up and CL was able to keep the bases clean for the most part with good fielding and 11 hits that answered the Bulldogs 4 run 6th inning with a 3 runner in keeping the game in hand.
