CL Volleyball Goes to Battle on Tuesday @ Home with 10am Start
Canyon Lake will go to battle this week with a round-robin set of games against Schertz Clemens and Liberty Hill, as this year begins with two power house schools.
Last season both teams had some daunting records with LH Panthers garnering a 33-11 year while the Clemens Buffaloes came home with a 40-6 campaign.
The Panthers were beat by the Class 4A Champions Needville who happened to be the same team that ended CL’s season. That contest was a Final Four loss for LH while Clemens final loss was to SA Reagan.
Canyon Lake had their first scrimmage last Saturday when they traveled to Lehman and unofficially winning those two contests over Austin Akins and Lehman.
“I was very pleased with the competition,” Head Coach Kim Paisley said. “There are some stuff we need to fine tune and our girls know we need to stay focused with these two highly competitive strong teams on Tuesday.”
Early season cobwebs is always a point where Coaches work on striving to miss getting entangled in those sticky quagmires.
“Many on our team arrived in mid-season form last week,” Coach Paisley admonished. “We lost 7 Seniors and 5 of those ladies were starters from last year’s group….I did pull up 4 Sophomores to our Varsity last year and that proved to be a strong move, as they have shown how ready they are last week.”
Canyon Lake has finished their 3rd year in a row having lost 7 seniors and those sophomores that were brought up will help solidify starting off this season.
“If we can get our passing down and we have to be on point with our passing and defense,” Coach Paisley calculated when asked how this upcoming games can end in CL’s favor on Tuesday.
The loss of 3 year starter Faith Hasness along with Anna Bettersworth who finished her career as the all-time blocker for the Hawks will give the Hawk’s fans an idea of who will be counted on to keep Canyon Lake ready for this week’s games.
“Hailey Overstreet and Cassidy Felps have helped in setting and taking over for the Hasness loss,” Paisley cited.
The Hawks will be counting on Paige Bower for helping in taking up the slack lost by losing Bettersworth.
Canyon Lake will have their final scrimmage in Blanco for a 10am get together on Monday and then a face-off against LH-Clemens on Tuesday.
The Hawks will see if they can advance further this week-end when they go to Wimberley for their Tex-Fest Tournament.
When asked what her thoughts for this year’s games, Coach Paisley said, “This year we can be District Champs!”
Fitting for the first Hawk Sport to make that goal three year’s ago….now, will this year be the first time a Hawk Sport can say they were the first to win 2 District Titles?
