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?
The ReSporter: Looking back at your game against La Vernia, how do you think the team you fielded before the Christmas break would have handled the Bears?
Coach Chapman: “Obviously, we are much different team now than we were back then. We have some different bodies playing and doing things a little bit differently. I’m sure they are in the same boat, so it would probably be a pretty good game if we played today.” (more…)
The ReSporter: Where is this team, based on where you started, to last Tuesday’s game?
Coach Burleson: “We are still trying a couple of different things defensively. So we have a lot of games over the break to try and get to where we need to be.”
The ReSporter: How do you assess this year’s district teams and who would be the teams with the highest hurdles to clear?
Coach Burleson: “It’s going to be a real tough district. Boerne and Fredericksburg are loaded. Llano returns everyone, Wimberley returns almost the whole team and Bandera is going to be a tough matchup athletically.”
The ReSporter: What is your process in regards to practice when you only have 9 players on Varsity?
Coach Burleson: “It is not easy, we have to try a get creative to foster some game like situations. We have to use our JV a lot (which helps them). Our girls are all involved in other sports and activities-so we haven’t had a lot of time as far as a full group goes.”
The ReSporter: You have hit 11 wins already…what would be a successful season win wise for this group?
Coach Burleson: “For us, we just need to focus on getting better. We just need to try to find a way to get into the playoff picture by late January and win a couple road games late. It will be difficult, but anything worth doing is.
“The ReSporter: You have mentioned on how many games these Seniors have won which has put the team over the .500 win percentage. Put those stats in perspective for the Hawk Nation.
Coach Burleson: “They’ve been a part of a lot of wins for sure. They are a great group to be around. Feel like I am lucky to have been able to be a part of their team. Love coaching them. I am proud of what they have accomplished but mostly how they interact with each other. That is what is most important.”
The ReSporter: What are you wanting to accomplish (not record) after the Christmas break in playing back-to-back tournaments?
Coach Burleson: “Game situations. In basketball, those breaks(Thanksgiving and Christmas) can take awhile to get over. Hopefully, with more games sandwiched in there, it will speed us up as far as getting back and going forward.”
The ReSporter: Thanks Coach and good luck as you draw nearer to district play…

The ReSporter: You are in new ground for length of stay at one school, what has been your likes for being The Hawks Volleyball Coach?
Coach Clemons: “I really appreciate the opportunity (6 years ago) to come in and set a standard and philosophy for the Hawk Volleyball program and Girls Athletics as a whole. Comal ISD and specifically Canyon Lake High School, is a GREAT place to work and be a part of! I am truly blessed and I tell everyone how proud I am to be a part of such an AMAZING school district! We have something special here at the lake and in Comal ISD that I know other school districts have a hard time matching up with! The opportunities for growth as a teacher and coach are limitless, and they truly care about us and our performances, so that they will provide as many tools as possible for us to be successful. I am PROUD to begin my 7th year at Canyon Lake High School.”
The ReSporter: What was the difference in these past two seasons as CL’s Baseball Coach as you look to jettison into another year of off-season work?
Coach Escamilla: “We spent more time in the weight room during this year than last year.” (more…)
The ReSporter: How do you assess this first year on the job at Canyon Lake?
Coach Galloway: “I know the season did not end the way any of us anticipated when we started back in January. But, despite our record this year, I believe we accomplished some great things as a team. Some of those cannot always be seen in the win and loss column. I am ready to get back to work so we can show people what we are capable of.” (more…)
The ReSporter: Wow, what a week for CL’s Soccer team, how would you describe what you just witnessed?
