Trenton Lorett finished high pt in Carlin Wicker Relays

Canyon Lake Sub-Varsity held their own in the Carlin Wicker Relays as the JV Boys finished 4th while the Hawk Ladies had a 6th place finish.

There were a few First Place finishers on a damp rainy day as Greyson Lee finished first in the 100 meter dash, Trenton Lorett was first in the 200 meter dash, and Nic Rivera scored 10 points for CL in the 110 meter hurdles.

On the Lady side, Alyssa Shipman finished first in the 100 meter hurdles.

Canyon Lake continues to have athletes that have performed well in those hurdle events and the pipeline looks like it will continue for a few more years.

Elena Vargas finished 2nd in the long jump for the next highest place in the events for the ladies.

Vargas and Strickland were the only Lady Hawks to finish in double figures with each having 10 points.


Hawks Return with Wet Ribbons after the Carlin Wicker Relays

Skylar Hurst finished high point (21) at Billies Meet

The Canyon Lake Hawks had their first run-in with the Carlin Wicker Relays. This meet has 51 years of history and on this rainy day, Kerrville Tivy won both the Boys and Girls Varsity titles.

Fredericksburg was a close 2nd place with their Boys and Girls teams as the Billies continue to churn out athletes each year and supply a multitude of depth in every event. That one aspect will garner a stampede of points.

Canyon Lake could not match that onslaught of runners and throwers and the result was a decent 4th (Boys) and 5th (Girls) place finish.
Skylar Hurst was high point for the ladies once again as she finished first in the triple jump and scored well in the 400 meter dash and helped in the mile relay.

Canyon Lake also saw their first of what will be many meets for Freshman Madison Churbe. This speedster scored 10 points and was the only other Lady Hawk in double figures.

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!!

Heath McDonough Clears High Jump Bar, signing with Texas Lutheran

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017


                      Heath McDonough next stop will be Texas Lutheran in Track & Field

Heath McDonough signed this past week on his intentions to enroll at Texas Lutheran for Trackj & Field Team.

McDonough will go down as one of the best athletes for the Hawks as this young man was busy in several sports as Texas Lutheran saw in this student that can be classified as an athlete.

In recruiting, there are many players that are labeled as ‘Athlete’ because that young man can do several positions and a school will not want to cement someone into one position, who could play more than one endeavor.

Repeat-Boutique Says Go Hawks and Repeat Winning


Canyon Lake put up a good fight in their Basketball game with Navarro but just missed out on that last 3point shot for a chance to go to another round.

The Hawks had their best season since they built the school and look to have more years like this one as the Junior Varsity won District 28-4A this year and will look to fill those 8 vacancies from graduating Seniors

Congratulations to these Boys and keep thriving for the best.

Girls Soccer had a huge win this past week against Fredericksburg as they now have cemented themselves into a playoff berth while looking for a better seed with more wins as they will start the second round this Tuesday when Boerne comes to town.

The Boys Soccer team had a tough loss to Fredericksburg on the road losing, 4-3 but will look to rebound when they go on the road to Boerne on Tuesday. The Boys tied Bandera last Tuesday and will continue their best season since they started kicking balls in 2008.

Golf is the next sport that is showing promise as both the Girls and Boys teams won their Meet last week in Sequin. Chance Martelli was medalist with a 77 score as both of these teams will continue their trek when they travel to Vaaler Creek this week for another chance to fill their Trophy Case.

Baseball started their season and came away with one tie to go with 5 losses. A tough start to this season as it will not get any easier as the Comal Tournament will start up this week and Canyon Lake will be host to several teams.

A good time to come out for some good baseball as the schedule above has the Hawk game times.

Lakeside Dog Grooming Says         Go Hawks!

Softball finished 2nd for their second time as they repeated that same position as the week before at Navarro.

This crew now stands with a 9-2-1 record as they will welcome two home games this week when Burnet and Navarro come calling. This will be a good week to see how this team will start to jell with games that will not be timed and that in itself will allow the Coaches to see how the Hawks do in longer settings.

Canyon Lake won their 100th game two weeks ago and now will have their sites on getting to .500 ball with a good year.

Volleyball is the only Hawk sport with an overall winning record for team sports.

        Go Canyon Lake

Track & Field had some promising times and throws and jumps coming from the Hays Lobo Relays last Saturday.

This week will be a big test as CL will travel to Fredericksburg and have a chance to see how their District 28-4A mates will fare with some one on one competition.

The Billies have always been a large hurdle for the Hawks to clear and this will give a chance of knowing what will need to be done to clear those barriers.

A lot going on, so if you are bored, then come out to the Hawk Nest and see some games!!

Go Hawks!!!

Lady Hawk Track & Field Improve with 2nd (JV) and 3rd (Varsity) for Lobo Meet

Sunday, February 26th, 2017

Adia Garcia is one of many Hawk athletes that play more than one sport

The Hawk Girls Track & Field team had another good day with the Junior Varsity staying with Hays finishing 2nd with 182 points. The next school was Lehman with 52 points as the Hays and Hawk girls literally lapped the competition on this day of cinder work.

CL’s Varsity had their best day of the year with a 3rd place finish, scoring 75 points finishing behind Hays and Westwood in the 8 team meet.

“I am proud of our girls and how hard they are working both in practice and at the meets,” Head Coach John Barthels said.  “Going against the larger schools has not phased them one bit.  They know they are racing the clock each week and are just focusing on getting better.”


Boy’s Track & Field finish 2nd (JV) and 3rd (Varsity) at Lobo Relays

Sunday, February 26th, 2017

Caimen McDonough was one of several basketball players ready to jump to new heights for Track

Canyon Lake came out of their blocks in good fashion after their second week of action this time at the Lobo Relays at Hays High School.

Not as many teams at this meet which cleared the field and allowed a much higher point total for both the JV and Varsity teams.

The JV Boys finished 2nd for the second straight week behind Hays and with 36 more points to boot leaving CL one point better than San Marcos.

Canyon Lake had some points from those distance events. Matt Bell finished 1st and 2nd in the 1600 & 800 running events. Bell’s mile run was 7 seconds better than his run at the Hawk Relays. The 1600 run was the 4th best in Hawk history and improving 4 more seconds will have his name below that 5 minute barrier.


Track & Field Starts with Good Showing at Hawk Relays

 Young Life says Go Hawks

The Hawks Track & Field Teams had impressive starts for this year’s season, as Canyon Lake jumped off into the year with an improving motif takes shape as each passing week will culminate with the District 28-4A Meet in April.

There were 14 schools in attendance for the all-day festivities as each running event had athletes running not knowing if their time would be good enough for placing.

Kenneth Jowers moved up to 3rd place in the Hawk 100 meter event as he started his year with a 11.31 dash.

Chance Martelli shaved a second off his previous 400 meter best while moving up to 5th place on the all-time Hawk list. Matthew Bell moved up on the Mile Run by improving his time by 8 seconds and now resides in 7th place in that category for Canyon Lake.

In those throwing events, Jacob Foster and Bradley Hight both entered the top 10 for Hawk Discus participants, now holding in the 7th and 8th spots respectfully.

Track Season Pre-View with Hawk Relays Starting Saturday

Monday, February 13th, 2017

Senior Brandon Courtney looks to get back to Austin this Year!

Track & Field will begin when the Hawks will welcome Schools to the Canyon Lake’s Hawk Relays this coming Saturday, February 20th.

The ReSporter has gone back in history to compile the Top Ten Track Athletes in scoring.

What you will see all the Hawk athletes below has some salty numbers as, The ReSporter, can remember three Meets where Jordan Anderson scored a maximum of 50 points.

Brandon Courtney will go into his Senior year in second place with 225 points and a chance to solidify his marks higher into CL’s hierarchy.
