Canyon Lake’s JV Volleyball team came home from Wimberley holding a 1st Place Silver Bracket trophy.

Another Hawk team that is starting to jell as this year’s schedule continues.

The Hawk JV had some new faces starting this year which made this season a little longer to get each player on the same page with their communication.

One game in particular had been on this team’s mind when CLJV was beaten in Lockhart three weeks ago. In that game, the Hawks, had an eight point lead in that third match and a chance for their first win.

That is when all those communication gremlins showed up on the court that night and Lockhart found their groove for a comeback win.

“I think this tournament really helped us to gel as a team,” Head JV Coach Megan Helmey said. “I can see the girls working together and trusting each other more.”

Canyon Lake was also right at the lip of the cup against Blanco earlier this year showing a lot of talent, but a win was absent on that night also.

“Our defense and passing have really been on point the last couple of weeks which has allowed us to really show off offensively,” Coach Helmey continued. “We were really excited to beat Lockhart because both myself and the girls knew that we lost that one because of our own mistakes…..It was a sweet victory.”

“We beat Lockhart,” Sophomore Kat Weber stated with a smile a mile long when asked how the team was doing at the Wimberley Tournament.

That is certainly a good indicator for success and now Canyon Lake seems poised to do some damage when District 26-4A starts this Tuesday.

“With district coming up, I think communication on the court is something we are still working on and by the end of district, I want to have the strongest offense in this district,” Coach Helmey prognosticated. “I want to challenge the girls to try new things and build their confidence in attacking the ball.”

This should be an exciting district season as Canyon Lake will start play this Tuesday at home.

In fact, all of the district games this year will be played on Tuesdays and so their is no excuse to find a parking spot near the gym to come and support some very exciting Hawk teams.

Go Hawks!!!
