First off The ReSporter will start off with the team stats to help put in perspective how this Hawk team compared to past Canyon Lake teams. With a caveat for the future as The ReSporter has both Varsity and Junior Varsity season stats.

Signature Homes says, Go Hawks!

Both clubs were at the top of their game this year and looking at the Varsity below will show just how lethal this team might have been in those district battles that were left out on the China Wuhan Wall.

This officially finished 2020 season had this group of young men holding the best in several categories when compared to previous Hawk teams.

These stats are not based on the most times a team had a *hit (*substitute: Runs, Strikeouts (SO), Base on Balls (BB), etc.) during a season but what those numbers averaged for a game which would be a better indicator. Especially after a shortened campaign.

Also notice the number of games shown for this season is 19 and not 14 as The ReSporter has already implemented this year’s exhibition numbers to help the team and Seniors. Many of those players, would have had a chance of reaching past players final stats, if the season would not have been halted by what China did to the world by spreading this Wuhan Virus around the world.

 

                            Here are the Top 3 Years in each standard.

You can see how this team dominated those previous CL Team starting with that 2009 season to present. The Hawk, Pitching, Fielding and Hitting was on top in almost every item this season.

                 Let’s Go Hawks!!

In fact, in many cases, so far ahead that you can imagine how far this team might have reached, when the post-season came calling.

As an example, look at this season’s final era number (0.94) and even if CL had played a pansy schedule, which they didn’t, would be hard to have for one pitcher much less a whole staff.

The ReSporter looked at one of the Top 25 Polls that was published before this Wuhan Virus stopped action in March. What was found, out of those 25 teams was striking, Canyon Lake topped all but one team in playing a tougher schedule based on win/loss records.

The Lake was not part of that poll, telling you just how tough it would be to know every team in this Great State of Texas, and being able to craft a poll without leaving schools out of that fray. Which was the case for your Home Town Boys.

Those teams were ranked based on how well they finished last year’s games and if a Pollster made a different, then it would only be based on their proximity to their geographical area.

                      Go Hawks!!

Another avenue The ReSporter took in comparing District 28-4A teams was by using a metric that would compare each team’s pitching staff. This would help in finding out which school had the best pitching staff.

Baseball can be won with good hitting or fielding but if a team has a consistent pitching staff, then those first two (hitting & fielding) do not have to be perfect for a team to finish a game with a win. Another tidbit is knowing that when it is time for district play to begin, a team can assess how well they might finish based on having two quality pitchers.

So, The ReSporter, went through each teams games and found that all the schools had played in 3 tournaments and going on an assumption that the first game a school will use their Ace Pitcher and that would be the case on down the road as the tournament would continue.

So the first game had the No. 1 pitcher, game two would have No.2 player, then a third game would pit each schools No. 3 pitcher.

Another variable was used where The ReSporter gave a ranking to each team being played and divided those schools with a (1) meaning a top notch school, (2) an average school, and (3) being a team that would be losing by a bunch and the game is usually stopped by the, ‘run rule’.

On that first game, CL finished with a 3-0 record for those first games of each tournament. Llano had the same record. The Hawks 1-2-3 opponent strength was a 6 while Llano added up to an 8, giving you an idea that CL played a tougher group of teams to start each tournament. A number that showed 9 would be an all patsy schedule and a 3 would tell a you that team played good teams and/or larger schools.

Here are the Teams based on that 1st Game of each Tourney:

 

           FIRST GAME of Tournament Best Pitchers (an assumption)
                               Record  Strength of Opp      Runs Scored and Runs Allowed

           Boerne              2-0-1          6                 17              6
           Llano               3-0-0          8                 27              7
           Wimberley           1-1-1          7                 14             15
           Fredericksburg      0-2-1          4                  8             16

           SECOND GAME 2nd Best Pitcher                        Runs         Runs Allowed
           Canyon Lake         3-0-0          6                 13              5
           Llano               2-1-0          7                 30             11

           Bandera             2-1-0          7                 13             18
           Wimberley           1-1-1          7                 15             17
           Fredericksburg      1-2-0          7                 11             29

           THIRD GAME 3rd Best Pitcher                         Runs         Runs Allowed
           Canyon Lake         3-0-0          7                 33              3
           Llano               1-0-1          4                 13             10
           Wimberley           2-1-0          8                 23             18
           Bandera             2-0-1          7                 20              7
           Fredericksburg      1-2-0          8                 15             20
           Boerne              0-2-0          4                  8             21

That speaks volumes on how lock-down CL’s pitching staff performed as those numbers were more impressive when they played a 4th-5th game. In those 3rd game scenarios, The Lake was at their best in scoring 33 runs while allowing only 3 tallies total.

Canyon City Grill says Go Hawks!

Simply put, Canyon Lake’s pitching staff did not have a weak link and those players were consistent which allowed the Hawks to finish their regular season with just two losses and both games by one run with each loss coming in the last inning when their opponent rallied and took a lead.

One loss was to a decent Medina Valley 5A school that Canyon Lake was allowed to play again that next week and had a, 7-1 victory. That other contest was against San Antonio Christian and this team was blessed with a lot of arms and finished their season with a, 15-0 record. The Hawks lost 3-2 with a chance for a win before running out of outs with players in scoring position when that game ended.

Yes, a lot of numbers but seeing how well your Hawks performed needs to be emphasized as this year would have been an excellent chance of making the finals in Region IV. This Region had 4 teams that were ranked in that Poll mentioned earlier.

Liberty Hill, Lampasas, Llano, and Sinton are those teams listed that would be good battles during the rounds of playoff battles, but all that can be done now is quit buying anything that is made in China and take what The ReSporter deduces, that the Hawks would have won District 28-4A without question.

Below is this season’s 2020 Season Stats and now we can only wait for next season for another chance of making noise. This season, Canyon Lake’s Junior Varsity finished their season, 12–3-1 and this team had some impressive outings.

Go Hawks and Get a Hit Next Year

CLJV had 4 district contests before the Wuhan break and those two schools were stalwarts, Fredericksburg and Boerne.

Your Hawks swept both teams and finished with a 4-0 district record. The Junior Varsity did not have a chance to match-up against Wimberley so this is incomplete, but this group of players are biting at the bit for get a chance to play Varsity next season.

Yes, more pitching and a ton of hitting and they have their final Season Stats below Varsity.

Canyon Lake has never had this many players in the pipeline inching up for a chance to show the Hawk Coaches what they can do….there were over 30 JV players that suited up and CL could have easily had two teams much like this past football season, when Canyon Lake had a Junior Varsity, Freshman, and Gold Team that all finished with winning records with the JV finishing 2nd while the Freshman and Gold team winning their District 28-4A Crown.

Good times are coming and The ReSporter will be ready when February comes calling again next season with a baseball team that will be ready to finish what was started.

Way to Go Hawks and Thanks Seniors.
