The Canyon Lake Cross Country team finished 5th in District 28-4A this past week.
Jaren Marmolejo finished in 10th place overall helping the team’s overall time greatly.
Marmolejo has been moving up each year with his long distance events and this will certainly instill some momentum as he will now start preparing for the Hawk’s Track Season in the Spring.
This week will be an important week for the Volleyball and Football students as both teams can advance to a good standing with wins.
For the Volleyball team, the Hawks, finished with an unblemished record this past week and now stand firmly in 2nd place with a chance of meeting Fredericksburg for a home match-up, this Friday. A win, and Canyon Lake will be tied for first with the Billies and a loss will have your Hawks looking at a 2nd place District 28-4A finish.
Those first round of playoff games will be pitted with a tough district that has La Vernia and Navarro in residence. CL will need to be in one of the top two spots in order to skip playing either of those teams during that first week of playoff meetings.
As it looks now, a 1st place will be matched with Gonzales and a 2nd place finish will have the Hawks matched up with Wimberley, as that will be a repeat to last year’s playoff format.
Volleyball will be home on Tuesday with a game against Hondo and then again on Friday with the Billies.
If you will not be able to make the Boerne game then a night at the Hawk Nest to help our team will be much appreciated. Then after the win, a listen party can be staged with the Canyon Lake Broadcasting live stream of the Football contest.
The Hawk Football team will have their toughest game to date when they meet Boerne for this Friday’s game.
Both teams won their first district contest and the winner of this battle will be in a good place to finish top of the heap.
Canyon Lake’s road is still tougher than the Greyhounds as their win over Fredericksburg was a much bigger hurdle cleared than CL’s first district game with Austin Eastside.
Taylor will start their district schedule this week against Eastside and a win would be expected, and then the Ducks have a gauntlet of 3 weeks of above average opponents.
The Ducks came through with flying colors last year, but that team lost some valuable senior players that has them breaking even with a 3-3 record this year going into those 4 district games.
Fredericksburg will draw a bye this week as they prepare for a road game with the Hawks that next week.
Boerne is undefeated and beat Wimberley by 13 points two weeks ago which is the only common opponent that can be used to help gauge which school that might have an advantage.
That advantage was earned by the Greyhounds and Canyon Lake will need to be ready for this battle.
Boerne has outscored CL, 113-57 combined in their last 3 home dates with your Hawks.
One of those losses was a 35-14 loss, during Canyon Lake’s best season in 2011, when that squad finished with an, 8-2 record. That set back would be the loss that kept that Hawk team from reaching the playoffs.
Can’t get much bigger in importance and a win is certainly possible as the running team meets up with the passing team.
Big Week and Go Hawks!!
