Volleyball: Seniors are Ready
Canyon Lake will have another successful year no matter the result of this year’s Tuesday game in their first round against Wimberley in Johnson City.
This group of Seniors have been with Coach Kimberley Paisley for the first 4 years and with that has come a certain bond with the players and their coach.
These Seniors even had one of their own start her high school career on the varsity 4 years ago as Regan Mickey had already shown the tools that Coach Paisley knew that was needed in getting this team to the playoffs.
Now for the last 3 years, the Seniors will enter the playoffs in all of those years as Mickey was also a part of the last team to not win the required number of district games to qualify in 2013.
That year did start with some quality wins as the Hawks went into that year of district games with a decent, 16-10 record.
Those district games took a toll on CL as they were able to win just one game against Bandera that certainly would leave a bad taste and a good dose of humbleness as preparation would start early for rectifying that finish.
Canyon Lake has not turned in their uniform after the regular season since that year as the Hawks have now supported a balmy, 88-32 record and a turn-a-round district record of, 27-5 showing. This is an 85% winning percentage for the games that count.
Those previous 3 years was not something you would write home about as CL had a 45-69 record during those years and even worse district ledger of 5-27.
So from 5-27 to a 27-5, this Senior group has helped turn a program to the positive and will now start their next set of games with those win or go home consequences.
In the last three campaigns the Hawks have beaten 5A schools 16 times with only 5 losses. Canyon Lake has a winning record against 6A programs with a 17-13 tally during that same time period.
Unbeatable Wimberley has a 3 game losing streak to Canyon Lake with the Hawks having a chance of increasing that to 4 games this Tuesday.
There are so many good things coming from the Volleyball teams as Junior Varsity and Freshman had successful years as well.
These are good times as Canyon Lake will now implore the Hawk Nation to show on Tuesday night and help support elevate their game with a joyous return home.
The game this Tuesday will be covered by Canyon Lake Broadcasting and the broadcast start time at 7:15pm.
Go Hawks and Congratulations to this Year’s Senior Class!! Now go beat the Texans!!
