Lady Hawks Sweep Bandera Relays
Canyon Lake had another successful evening at the Track as both the Varsity and Junior Varsity won at the Bandera Relay last Wednesday.
The Lady Hawks have continued to have a phenomenal year with each week after finishing their 4th Meet in the Top 3 in the team standings.
“Their ‘random’ lane assignments have not been on our side lately which does cause our girls to be in heats with runners that may not push them as much as we would like,” Head Coach John Barthels noted on this meet. “But they all understand that we are always running against the clock and we will not make excuses for ourselves…..We have had the pleasure of running two teams at every meet so far in each division that has allowed us to get many times on a lot of girls. This has helped us and also made my job more exciting because we are close to the time where we will enter the best we have in order to score points at the district meet.”
Personal Bests are becoming routine as this Hawk Track Team heads around their last turn before the finish line in the form of next months District 28-4A Track Meet being held at Fredericksburg.
This meet had Audrey Schulze as the high point lady with Skylar Hurst right behind her as this type of competition between teammates should help iron sharpen iron when CL meets other schools.
“Audrey (Schulze) has had a great beginning to her Junior year of track,’ Coach Barthels said in response to this battle with fellow teammate Skylar Hurst. ‘The competition has been great between the girls and everyone is working hard.”
Fredericksburg is the team to beat as they have won district championships as a routine and with a ton of depth which is a key for success on the cinders should go into this year’s District Meet as the favorite.
The Canyon Lake Ladies Track Team helped finish off the Sweep in Bandera as all 4 of the Hawk’s contingents came away from this meet holding a 1st Place Banner.
This Bulldog Meet happened with just 4 days of rest after competing in Navarro and scoring points seems to be a common occurrence after the Junior Varsity finished with a record 264 and a Varsity 182 points in this before Spring Break Meet.
Depth for the Hawk JV squad was the key as they more than doubled Hondo who finished 2nd. Bandera was 3rd as these same schools will be in an upcoming District 28-4A meet in April.
Alyssa Strickland lowered her 100 meter hurdle and is getting closer to the All-Time mark held by Jessica Cunningham.
There were other Hawks that upped their PR’s as Adia Garcia finished with her best throw in her Discus event going over the 100 foot mark giving CL two ladies (Jade Lawless) which can come in handy when district comes calling.
Alysha Perez had her PR in the Shot Put and Anna Bettersworth topped the 5-2 high jump as that tied her for 2nd place on the Hawk Best list.
On that same event (high jump) the JV Girls finished, 1st-2nd-3rd for a 24 point sweep. Landry Brown soared to 4-07 feet with Caroline Kullberg and Madison Blackburn taking care of those next two spots.
