      Way to Be Heroes Hawks!!

The Hawks continues their busy Fall after celebrating Homecoming last week-end. The Student section was the best The ReSporter can ever remember with the stadium packed.

CL’s game did not go as expected but it was just the first loss and there are many more games coming up with the Football Team heading to Smithville as there will be just one more game before District 28-4A gets going after the Blanco home game in two weeks.

This week will have Wednesday and Thursday with the Hawks hosting games at the Hawk Nest. CL’s Gold team will be in action starting at 530pm against Hays Freshman. Then on Thursday, the Junior Varsity will play Smithville along with the Freshman team.

Tennis keeps up their schedule on Tuesday when they make a rare road game to Boerne with the first serve coming at 400pm.

Cross Country will be in action during the week and not on a regular Saturday. They will be in Fredericksburg for their Invitational run starting at 2pm. That might be a hot day for those runners.

Volleyball’s Varsity will be practicing this week without any games as they have just one more non-district date with Marion on a week from this Tuesday before a road game to Boerne to start district play.

         Way to Get a lot of Hits!!

This group is on a 6 game winning streak and will have their work cut out for them when the games that count get going.

If you find yourself needing to enjoy some Hawk sports then get to the High School or take a road trip to root for the CL students.

And Always….Go Hawks!!

Volleyball’s Sub-Varsity is All About Communication



Freshman Maddie Pipkin and Madison Hartman are starting to settle in as District 28-4A comes calling.

Lily Sanders and Macie Goodson prepare for District as pre-district games start to come to a close.

       Go Hawks!!









Canyon Lake’s Sub-Varsity Volleyball Team’s continue to improve as this season starts to mature after seeing both squads with wins after the Hawks swept Manor last Friday.

Canyon Lake will go into their 2nd game of the season against a foe that will be playing their 2nd year of Varsity competition.

The Hawks were in this same boat 11 years ago after finishing their first year with just one win. That would be short lives after a rise to making the playoffs in their 2nd campaign.

Weiss could be a carbon copy of that Hawk team which should give this Hawk squad enough ammunition to be ready for this battle.

Jada Rainbolt and Haley Gallagher basking in the Sun.


During the 2018 season, the Hawks had 15 kids playing, this year, those numbers have soared with 27 students coming out which will justify a full varsity team and almost a full JV team. Canyon Lake will have a few players playing on both JV and Varsity different weeks so to help in not having to have forfeit matches.

Coach Mickey will have a big group of freshman and several freshman who made the varsity squad…Kylie Rust, Hayley Jackson, Colby Jackson, Cecilia Lalonde and. Avery Golden

Captains this year will be Stormie Dawkins, Rico Griffin (both seniors)

Returning varsity has Haley Gallagher who will play both doubles and singles as CL’s. Gallagher is one of the harder workers and is a great teammate.

Gabriel Lara and Colin Baker adds to Hawk tennis depth.

Matt Anderson and Zachary Elson are baseball guys who are playing fall tennis and will contribute in playing doubles.

Canyon Lake has a lot of beginning tennis players, so this year’s goals will be to grow this program, improve skills, and compete every time out.

Other returning varsity player not mentioned…Thomas Liggett who will play doubles or singles in CL’s #6 spot.

Junior Varsity will include Tanner Adams, Cooper Blackburn, Travis Parma, Frasier McNew, Mason Bolin, Mattison Kitzel, Bekah Tucker, Gwen Mccutchen, CJ Mccormick, Isabella Smith.

Way to Go Hawks!!
