The ReSporter had a conversation with Girl’s Athletic Director John Gallagher to get the scoop.

The ReSporter: Hey Coach Gallagher give us your overall opinion on last year’s sports for the ladies.

Coach John Gallagher: “This year was a success throughout the athletic program. All of our female athletes worked very hard both in-season and off-season in the athletic period. As a whole our female athletes recorded improvement their strength, speed, and agility through a detailed workout program implemented by our coaches. There was also a higher level of academic achievement with many of our athletes being named to All-District Academic honors.”

The ReSporter: The Volleyball team set the bar high when they won the School’s first District Championship.

Area Meet had some surprises as Canyon Lake will take 11 athletes to Kingsville this week for Region Meet after qualifying in Liberty Hill.

CL’s 4×400 meter relay team set the best mark in Hawk history when they crossed the finish line in 3:25.75 finishing in 3rd place.

A record that had stood strong for 4 years was eclipsed with this year’s foursome.

Back in 2012, Canyon Lake had gone two years with the same group of boys in all three relay events and they have had the best time since that year.

Zach Henshaw, Daniel Camarillo, Eduardo Covarrubias, and Doug Hubnik were the foursome that will now relinquish their first place hold on the 4×400 relay time.

Austin Camacho, Lester Boehm, Heath McDonough, and Brandon Courtney are now proud owners and being on top of the heap.


MVMS Tracksters Score Well in District Meet

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016


Mountain Valley Middle School was busy in Wimberley last Friday as their District Track Meet had all hands on deck for this event.

“We are really proud of how all of our kids competed at the district meet,” Athletic Coordinator Brandon Pawelek said. “They worked hard all season and we had quite a few personal records throughout our boys and girls teams……We had school records set by Nic Rivera in both 110 and 300 meter hurdles, as well as, Devon Cordell in the discus as well as both 7th and 8th grade girls 4×100 meter relay teams.”

The Hawks had several athletes that excelled on Friday with Rivera topping all MVMS students scoring 28 points after combining all events Rivera was entered.

Those boys hurdles will be busy next year for Canyon Lake as that is presently the best part of the Hawks high school team headlined by Brandon Courtney.

Well, Rivera served notice that he is ready to make his mark after setting MVMS bests in those events with two 1st place finishes.

Canyon Lake Sports start to wind down as the Hawk Softball team will playing their last game of the season on Tuesday in La Vernia.ads-300-x-600

This was a difficult year for Hawk Softball as this team had a very successful pre district record but just could not get out of the circle in district play.

What made last week win over Wimberley so satisfying was that the win was against the Texans and that would be the last district game for the next two years since Canyon Lake will moving west for their district games.

Baseball is entering into their last 3 games with one game this week in La Vernia and then an off day on Friday.

CL will have their last week of action next week when they play Yoakum away and then Senior Day with Gonzales on that Friday.

Track & Field will be in action in Liberty Hill this Thursday as the Hawks will do battle with District 25-4A Schools and our district qualifiers for a chance to compete the next week in TAMU-Kingsville.

Canyon Lake has a chance of sending several athletes this Thursday as the Hawks will need to finish in the top 2 to keep their eyes on getting to Austin.

The ReSporter added some Mountain Valley schedules for this week as you can have a chance of seeing some future CLHS Hawks compete.

Go Hawks!!

Coaches Corner with Track’s Troy Moses

The ReSporter: What are your overall thoughts after District Meet?

Track and Field Coach Troy Moses

Track and Field Coach Troy Moses

Coach Moses: “I was very proud of the performance from all of our athletes.  We set 4 school records and everybody gave their best performances of the year.  I don’t think you can ask for more.”

The ReSporter: Why was our district meet a week earlier than most other districts?

Coach Moses: “The coaches in the district decided to move the date up to give us more time to prepare for Area and Regionals.”

The ReSporter: When you have two weeks before the next meet what do you do different with the qualifiers?

Coach Moses: “It is a huge advantage, this week we will be doing some heavy training while others are preparing for their district meet.  Next week we will back off again to make sure we are ready for Area.” (more…)

The ReSporter: What are your overall thoughts after District Meet?



Coach Barthels: “My overall thoughts on the district track meet are that we participated at a much higher level than we have all year.  Other schools did as well, resulting in us placing 4th place instead of first, but we had about 90% of the girls run a better time than they have run all year and that is what is asked of them. “

The ReSporter: Why was our district meet a week earlier than most other districts?

Coach Barthels: “We meet and agree a year in advance as to when we will have district meets.  There is a set date that you must have district finished and if you have bad weather it gets crazy, doing things this way allows more time to get ready for the area and then regional meets as opposed to running district and then the next week have area and then the next week regionals.  It is going to help me as we have a couple of girls banged up right now and this will give us more time to heal and be at our best.”
