Bracken Christian is Ready to Make Noise

Saturday, August 13th, 2016
Go Warriors

  Go Warriors

Bracken Christian has been going strong for 10 years now as they finished out of the playoffs in just their first year of existence as they have been winning ever since.

Last year the Warriors had a younger team than their first campaign back in 2006 and if a losing record could have been made, that was the year.

That young group of players not only pulled off another winning season, but played well in the playoffs too.

Now, one year later, BCS will have a chance of making more noise as 18 players will be ready for getting the Warriors in the thick of their district and a longer run in those playoffs.

On Friday, Bracken had three other teams in attendance at their stadium as the first scrimmage was in full gear to start the 10th year of Bracken football.

The JV football team had its opening moments for the 2016 seeing eye to eye, meaning the scrimmage in which they started off with this season was played against each other, at least in the beginning.

Smithville fielded a smaller team this season and as it would happen the freshman got first shot at the Tigers on the other side of the field as Fridays scrimmage began in leaving the JV to bash one another up and down the field to start the season.

The Junior Varsity squad is full of Juniors and Sophomores this season, so much so, that there will be a JV Gold team and Green team with each team looking to compete for district title like last year’s JV team accomplished under Coach Bartels.

The CL freshman football team took the field Friday afternoon against Smithville Tigers in their first ever look at high school football and picked up where they left off last year as a district champs at Mountain Valley Middle School.

The offense as well as the defense seemed to have their starters already figured out as a few players swapped in and out on the first teams during the scrimmage.

The Hawks first string offensive-line appeared to have a consistent work ethic in blocking a well sized Tiger front four as well as down field blocking assignments with their linebackers and secondary.


Canyon Lake Starts Countdown for Next Season

Mountain Valley Lady Hawks Softball next Stop for many being CLHS

What happened this past school year for Canyon Lake for the sporting year?

Right off the bat, you had the first District Championship when the Hawk Volleyball team took the title from Wimberley that had won a district crown since the start of this century.

That was a height never envisioned by anyone in the know as the Texan’s had been cemented into the first place podium so many years.

Then jump into the Boy’s Cross Country team that qualified for the second year in a row and with that race this past season, the times were getting much lower with many runners who will be back to go further this coming season.

You could see the evidence during the track season when Canyon Lake’s distance runners scored more points in the history of the program and will have all those student’s returning.

Hawks gathering to see where they will be playing next Season after Realignment

What do all these schools have in common? District 14-4A

             Taylor             Fredericksburg          Boerne
              Austin Eastside Memorial        CL Hawks

When Summer goes into it’s final stages, then these 5 schools will begin getting prepared to compete against each other for a Football Crown.

Every two years, the schools have to realign based on enrollment so teams can compete with others that have similar numbers of students.

Bandera and Liberty Hill will leave for different districts while CL added Austin Memorial on the Eastside.

Bandera absence was based on having a smaller number of kiddos while Liberty Hill was moved to match up with other schools closer to where they live.

What do these schools have in common? District 28-4A (more…)

Too Hawk to Trot 5K Event Update!

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015


The ReSporter had an advertisement for the community a couple of weeks ago for a 5K Hawk Trot for the Canyon Lake Feeder schools.

Elizabeth Stearns was in charge of this event and The ReSporter had a chance to get news on how the extravaganza went.

The ReSporter: What is the history for this event?

Stearns: “We had our first 5K with just Startzville Elementary Nov 17, 2012 and then decided we needed to make it a community event. I am a runner and my kids beg to do the obstacle runs with me but most have an age limit. Because of that I wanted to make this an obstacle course that the whole family could do. I want our community to love being active together.”

The ReSporter: What is your purpose so you can get the word out for next year?
