The ReSporter: Canyon Lake’s first Final Four Team has started their season, what can the Hawk Nation expect when they venture out to see this year’s edition?


ALL-DECADE Games Continued with Countdown, No. 7th, 6th, and 5th Place

               Let’s Go Hawks!!

The Reporter would like to encourage the readers to go to that earlier entry for the 10th-9th and 8th place write-ups if you are reading this piece for the first time.

These games/events were hard to pick just 10 and then put them in order presented even more contemplation. What the ReSporter thinks are would be according to one person and certainly there would be a different group of 9 out of 10 people with other opinions. Hope you enjoy and use the Links to go back in history to recall these events.

Now the next 3 sports will be presented and a reasons why these games were slotted in this group and what the significance that propelled them to these lofty goals.

We will have a Link to the articles so a reader can go back and have a better rendition of these particular events.


Number 7 Canyon Lakes Boy’s Soccer Win over Gonzales for a berth into the Sweet 16

Now the next Hawk Event comes for the Boys Soccer team that won their 2nd playoff game during the 2017 season against Gonzales.

Signature Homes says, Go Hawks!

That year, The Lake, drew a bye for that first round playoff contest and then pulled off one of the biggest upset in Canyon Lake’s history after a last second kick off the foot of Nash Young in beating a one loss Salado team.

Canyon Lake would then have a date against a Gonzales team at a neutral site that was anything but neutral. The Apaches had a 26 mile jaunt to Yoakum while the Hawks traveled right at 2.5 hours from home for this match-up.

When the stadium was found a huge contingent of Gonzales fans would fill the stands as it was apparent that Soccer was THE sport for this school.

CL was new in this sport with this being the 2nd year of qualifying for a playoff and in that previous season it would be a one and done scenario. In fact, Boys Soccer was the last Hawk Team sport that was able to have a season where a playoff was earned.

There were some years that scoring a goal would be considered a victory in the greater scheme of things.

Now the new kid on the block would have a major hurdle to clear for a chance to qualify for the Regions being held in the Valley. This Hawk Soccer team ended the year with 16 wins which was one win less than CL had added up during their first 6 years of competition.

Go to this Link for to recount this game: CL Hawks Soccer Beat Gonzales for Sweet 16 Berth



CL’s Football team would have their first 10 win season and this game would be the first that had the Hawks playoff march make it to the 3rd round. There had been 3 previous chances that had all failed in getting to that next rung on the ladder.


2010 Hawks beat Burnet      (27-20) and lost to Somerset  (24-25)
2013 Hawks beat Pleasanton  (24-21) and lost to La Grange (8-50)
2014 Hawks beat Waco LaVega (49-26) and lost to Rockport  (21-27) in overtime.

               Let’s Go Hawks!!

So with CL had two chances that would just come up short in those previous tries, but this time Pleasanton would not be able to hold this loaded Hawk team that had a convincing (28-10) win and a date with Waco La Vega in that next round.

This win would give your Hawks their longest winning streak to date at 8 games and finished their year with a 35 point scoring average while giving up just 18 which is still the best defense for a Canyon Lake team.

Canyon Lake went into their halftime down 3 points but would outscore the Eagles, 21-0 in the 2nd Half for this victory.

A Hawk team that would win a District Crown which would give CL a first round date with Gatesville and then Pleasanton giving The Lake their best season to date.

NUMBER 5: Volleyball’s 2015 season after beating 2nd Place Navarro that clinched a District 26-4A Championship.

This would also be the year that CL would finally not only win a game but a set within a game against the perennial heavyweight of the Hill-Country in Wimberley.

Yes, you read that right, The Lake had not even won a set in all those years of battles as each year the Texans would show two wins coming by, 3-0 sweeps for each district contest year in and year out.

              Way to Go Hawks!!

There was one year that CL was able to get within 2 points but the result was still the same….all the time….

Now the Hawks were able to have a former player from this behemoth school that had been hired as CL’s Coach, in Kim Paisley (now Clemons), and in her 3rd year at the helm she had a team that would finally be able to climb that mountain but would have enough energy to climb an even higher realm in securing The Lake’s first district championship of any kind for all Hawk sports.

It was Navarro, that had the 2nd best record that would pose the bigger threat in seeing if Canyon Lake could finish a magical season by not only winning the crown but finish undefeated.

Way to Go Hawks!!

Canyon Lake had a memorable week after this year’s Boy’s Soccer competed in the first State Tournament in grand fashion.

Yes, the result was not what we wanted but the excitement and hoopla was something that is not a common occurrence around these parts. The Hawks scored first but could not hold that lead in losing, 2-1 to Midlothian Heritage.

What a year for these athletes and one that will be remembered as there is now a blazed trail for other CL sports in having goals of achieving.

All of those Soccer Battles were to the wire and was action filled and The ReSporter as well as the Hawk Nation would like to say Congratulations and thanks for the ride.

Softball finished their season last Tuesday in a loss to Bandera and will see if they can re-group for next year as this group of ladies lost just one Senior and should have plenty of weapons when next year starts coming.

Baseball is still in the heat of battle as they are in ‘heated’ battle with Fredericksburg as these two will have a big game this Tuesday with the winner enjoying an inside track for that final play-off spot in the standings.

Come out and watch the last sporting event on CL’s Nest for a game that will start with the first pitch at 7:00pm.

                      Let’s Go Hawks!!

Track & Field will be in action on Friday and Saturday when the Region Qualifiers will see if they can qualify for the State Meet in May.

The ReSporter will share an article this week on how other athletes from around South Texas did in similar events that your Hawks will be running or throwing or jumping.

Go Hawks!!
