The Hawks are presently on an eight game winning streak with their last loss coming to Blanco three weeks ago.
CL has never reached this milestone in their short history. Being 14 games over .500 is four games better than the team that went 25-15 back during the 2009 season.

Even more significant is the overall record as Volleyball is now the only sport to go over .500 for all games played. After 225 games, the Hawks now have a 113-112 record and exceeds any other CL sport.

All the players got into action in this match as Gonzales is struggling as they have just one victory so far this season. It doesn’t help that this district is loaded with several good teams and an Apache win seems out of the question as they will be trying to regroup as this season matures.

Enough firsts for one night as Canyon Lake’s next game will be against another powerhouse in Navarro at home this next Tuesday.

The Hawks beat the Panthers in their first week during the Tex-Fest Tournament in Wimberley. That win broke a Navarro 6-game winning streak over Canyon Lake.

Having a full gym for this game will be a must as a win over Navarro would give a boost for a team having higher expectations for this year’s campaign.

During that 2010 year, the Hawks, won both their games over Navarro and had their best district record when they started 4-0 for that season.

With just one win last year in district play, the Hawks passed that total in this victory over Gonzales.

So, another first is on the horizon as CL can attain a 3-0 District 26-4A record with a win and needing just one more against Cuero to tie that record.
