Canyon Lake ends season on a losing note as the Hawks said good-bye to four Seniors who played their last game.

Bandera finished off the Hawks, 67-48, as CL once again started the game in a whole as the Bulldogs finished that first quarter in the lead, 18-7.

Isaac Mendez did have one of his best games of the season on this night as he was the only Hawk in double figure scoring finishing with 12 points and also chipped in with 9 rebounds which also led the Canyon Lake effort.

Canyon Lake did finish the season as the all time leading Hawk team with steals, rebounds, and blocks per game.

Those numbers still did not translate into victories as CL finished the season without a district win.

Conversely Canyon Lake also finished this season as the worst team for defense, assists, and turnovers was only 3 away from leading in that category (2009 team had 3 more turnovers).

The Hawk Seniors did make their presence known for their last game: Andrew Riali, Tyler Clark, Isaac Mendez, Javier Mendez, and Luke Curry.

Player Quotes:
On what you think about last game and what wisdom for younger players:
Senior Isaac Mendez: “This went by quick….you can’t take days off and I hope for a different season than what we did.”
Senior Javier Mendez: “The season ending kind of stinks….the players got to understand the harder you work, the better you get.”
Senior Andrew Riali: “It is hard to say good-bye….this year all I wanted to do is concentrate on basketball. The players have to practice three times harder and work on what you are worse at doing. Work over the
Summer as much as you can on dribbling skills, finishing, and free throws.”
Senior Luke Curry: “We were building blocks for future teams.”
Junior Garrett Winters: “Ultimately, I would like to win some basketball games next year. We need to reduce our turnovers and just take care of the ball.”

The ReSporter will have final stats for the year and all-time stats tomorrow.
