Go Hawks

Canyon Lake started their basketball campaign with a competitive game with Lehman as the Hawks played an even game after a slow start, 37-27.

“We changed our defense after seeing their star player taking advantage of our match-ups,” Head Coach Mary Beth Gallagher said. “We played them much better after the start of the game and I am really pleased considering we lost by 40 points last year to this same team.”

That final score last season with Lehman was an 84-40 score and considering this team being in the 6A Classification then good points can come from a loss.

This year’s volleyball team was helped with the addition of Emma Gray and now this young lady brings a basketball skill set that should help as this season starts to mature as the height can only help.

Gray led the team with 8 points on 4 of 9 shooting and a solid 6 rebounds.

CL only has 4 returning players from last year’s roster and youth will be served in heavy doses as the Hawks can only claim 3 Seniors on their roster.

After that slow start where Lehman jumped out to a 9 point lead, Canyon Lake would stand their ground and stayed even for the remainder of this contest.

“We played very good defense for the first game and that helped us as we struggled to make shots from the paint,” Coach Gallagher assessed. “We are rusty but I like what I saw and I believe this group plays well as a team.”

If Canyon Lake can improve on those free throws then this team can be in many more games as 13 missed shots from the charity stripe can help rectify many things on the course and turn a loss to a win.

“I look for this team to continue to become more aggressive in defense and our shots will start falling soon,” Coach Gallagher finished.

Canyon Lake will be back in action next Tuesday when they travel to Dripping Springs for their 7pm start.

Good luck and Go Hawks!!
