Bad News & Good News for CL’s Junior Varsity Baseball
Canyon Lake’s Junior Varsity Baseball team has had a special season so far after starting District 28-4A in beating Fredericksburg and Boerne in their double header contests before a stop in action.
For this week the good news is seeing rain not being a bother for postponement of any games and in looking at this year’s JV Squad you can surmise even more good news for future Hawk Baseball teams.
The Lake’s three losses this season were against two 6A and one 5A schools and a tie with Smithson Valley.
A wealth of players in seeing 30 athletes suit up for the Junior Varsity thus far, which is a sight not seen ever for this sport, this tells the Hawk Nation that something special is starting to take hold at The Lake.
The ReSporter has the top 5 statistical leaders below this article so the Hawk Nation can see that this sport is well represented for future conquests.
A team batting average of .316 and an on base percentage at .495 will go a long way in scoring and winning. Add a stout pitching staff with an era (earned run average) of 2.49 shows how potent this club has been this year.
Fifteen players have a .300 or above average and there are 4 Freshman getting playing time with the Varsity to top it all off. Those players have had some cameo performances for the JV so far but for the most part have not played a ton of innings for this JV squad.
When it comes to a team that has played over 30 players and can only have 9-10 involved at one time, would dictate a chance for positive action and looking at those performances to see if more players can get noticed.
Having those 4 varsity freshman players full time on this JV team would no doubt improve that already impressive record.
Sophomore Gunnar Walker would be one of many of those headliners on those names below, as this young man, is making a good case for a move to that next level in his future. Add more impressive pitching will show how this Junior Varsity team is being groomed for varsity play as next year will certainly present itself soon enough.
CL has never been undefeated against the combo of Freddie-Boerne and hopefully the season can get going again for more chances of repeating that same District Championship in line with how the Sub-Varsity football teams pulled off.
Bad News, this is a time of no action but seeing how bright CL’s future looks will and can give happy thoughts during this down time.
Way to Go Hawks!!
