This Week @ Canyon Lake

This Week @ Canyon Lake

Another year is almost over as Canyon Lake is now down to two sports still running their engines.

Pitcher Nick Kissell will be trying to turn the tide to wins this week against Navarro

Track & Field will be in Kingsville this week, as they will be attempting to make a trip to State a reality.

The ReSporter has an article about that event posted if you would like to read about these students.

This Track team is very young and you will have many opportunities to watch these athletes improve on their marks made this season and hopefully a few more to come after this week.

Baseball is down to their last two regular season games.

Navarro will be in town this Tuesday and a win by Canyon Lake will allow you to not just pencil the Hawks for a post season spot—-you can also use ink.

Canyon Lake has been on a downward spiral the past couple of weeks but baseball is a sport that can change on a dime based on pitching and fielding.

Hitting is also in that formula, but pitching and defense can usually trump those batters which makes this game an intriguing affair to behold.

The Hawks won their first round game with the Panthers and you can bet that team is no longer around as Navarro is also in a place where they can also reach the playoffs by beating Canyon Lake in their two games this week.

Fredericksburg is the other team vying for a spot and if they are swept by Bandera, then both Navarro and CL will be playing more games next week.

Canyon Lake needs to get off to a good start and have some wins to craft some momentum going into the post season.

With a 3rd or 4th place finish, CL will certainly be playing a 1st or 2nd place team in District 28-3A giving a tough first round.

Canyon Lake has been shopping for playoff T-shirts only once in their history and this year would be a good time to start putting some tradition in that little round ball.

Tuesday will be the date as the first pitch will commence at 7pm, come and be a part of this year’s Hawk Baseball team.
