The ReSporter has learned that Head Coach John Gallagher will be stepping down as coach of Canyon Lake’s Softball team for this coming school year.
Here is an informational Coaches Corner for Mr. Gallagher to help inform you of his plans and thoughts.
The ReSporter: Do you change things up, or do you keep to the same type of regiment in between your seasons?
Coach Paisley: “I am always a believer in consistency and especially with the conditioning and weight room regiment, along with expectations during the off-season. As for skills, we adapt to what group of kids we have returning, and need to focus on most. Passing and defense is always a must and is a skill we try to perfect every season.”
The ReSporter: You have Skylar and Alysha that have been involved with Track for 4 years now, what has these two athletes meant to the overall group of ladies that are participating?
The ReSporter: What are your thoughts on how this season has gone up to the week before the District Meet?
Coach Moses: “We have had a very successful season thus far.”
The ReSporter: Why do the Hurdle Events have so many Hawk athletes wanting to compete in them?
Coach Moses: “That’s where we feel we can make up points on other teams. We want everybody running the hurdles, then we will move athletes away from them as the coaches figure out what events they’ll excel in.”
Canyon Lake Softball team will be unveiling their 2018 version this Friday when the Hawks open District 28-4A on the road in Boerne.
The Greyhounds have been a tough out for CL for several years and a good start will be paramount in finishing this part of the season in good shape to be seeded as a higher seed. La Vernia has shown they will have the potential to be the winner of their district with Wimberley in that same running.
Canyon Lake would need to finish 1st or 2nd to avoid having to play those two schools in that first round of playoffs.
The ReSporter: Tell us about your road to Canyon Lake. Where have you been or give us your Coaching Tree. (more…)
The ReSporter: What are your initial thoughts after your first scrimmages?
Coach Gallahger: “I was happy with how we played for our first scrimmage. Our varsity players played strong defense and all our pitchers threw pretty consistent. We rotated three catchers who did a good job as well. We didn’t hit as well as I would have liked but with a mixture of four lineups going it was hard to get a lot of at bats for any one player. We had some key hits and showed some power early on.” (more…)
The ReSporter: What do you feel will be your strengths this year?
Coach Moses: “Our throwers could wind up being the strength of this team. They are seniors (Jacob Foster, Joseph Crisp, Ross Snowden, Brayden and Bradley Hight)who love to compete and love to see themselves improve. Lester Boehm will be the leader of our sprinters and Caimen McDonough will lead the jumps and hurdles.” (more…)
The ReSporter: This will be the most anticipated Track Season for the ladies in the past 10 years….give us a reason to be excited.
Coach Barthels: “For starters we only graduated 4 seniors last year. The track program as a whole has slowly, but surely been improving each of the past few years. We have had some individuals that have done well in the past, but this year we have more athletes that are dedicated to the program and the word is spreading that we can compete with anyone we run against.” (more…)
