It wasn’t a pretty day inside the gym for Saturday’s Tex-Fest, as Canyon Lake, was a no-show in their contests after being swept by Peaster and Lago Vista in their Gold Bracket.

Canyon Lake was all business on Friday during their first day of competition in Wimberley’s Volleyball Tournament.
Burnet, Boling, and Caddo Mills were all fodder after the Hawks paved their way to the Gold Round that commence Saturday morning in the Main Gym. Canyon Lake will be paired against Peaster starting at 9am.
Canyon Lake split their 3-team round robin, to open their season, after losing to Clemens and then a win over Liberty Hill and a 1-1 record against two very competitive schools.
Canyon Lake will go to battle this week with a round-robin set of games against Schertz Clemens and Liberty Hill, as this year begins with two power house schools.
Last season both teams had some daunting records with LH Panthers garnering a 33-11 year while the Clemens Buffaloes came home with a 40-6 campaign.
The Panthers were beat by the Class 4A Champions Needville who happened to be the same team that ended CL’s season. That contest was a Final Four loss for LH while Clemens final loss was to SA Reagan.
Another Hawk season is looming as Volleyball, Football, and Cross Country start their preparation for competition.
Volleyball will have their regular season starting off first at home with a 3 team get-together at the Hawk Nest next Tuesday when Clemens and Liberty Hill comes to town with these schools starting their season openers. This round robin affair will start at 10am with sub-varsity and varsity using both gyms.
Coach Kim Paisley has had CL’s Volleyball settling in with several good years as this group of ladies have catapulted this sport to an all-time best record since the Canyon Lake started ten years ago.
Since Coach Paisley’s 2nd year of coaching the Hawks, this team, has not finished below a 2nd place finish with a high water mark, 3 years ago winning CL’s first district championship for any sport.
Canyon Lake Record Last 5 Years Year Overall District District Finish 2013 19-22 1-9 Last 2014 31-12 9-3 Second (Wimberley Won) 2015 33-09 12-0 First 2016 26-13 6-2 Second (Freddie Won) 2017 23-12 6-2 Second (Freddie Won) 132-68 34-16
Canyon Lake will for the next start two year’s with some different schools as Hondo will no longer be around while adding Wimberley and Llano to a 6 team District with Bandera, Boerne, and Fredericksburg continues, as partners.
Cross Country will have some work again this year as perennial powers with Bandera, Boerne and Fredericksburg having a ton of talent and the Hawk’s will be looking to make a dent against those powerhouses.
Football is coming off their first District Championship and will have a tough district with new-comers in Liberty Hill, Burnet, and Lampasas joining up with Taylor, Fredericksburg and your Hawks.
CL will be working on replacing an offensive and defensive line that dominated enough for a 10 win campaign and finishing their season in the month of December.
This year’s Senior Class is not low on talent as this group of players have dominated since middle school and will supply this year’s team with some leadership that was a major ingredient to last seasons banner year.
Canyon Lake will have their first scrimmage on the road against Cuero, August 18th starting at 5pm.
The Hawks will return to Cuero the next week with a scrimmage with Orange Grove. Why two road scrimmages?
Not that bad of a situation, since your Hawks have 6 home tilts with 4 road games this coming campaign. So some home-field advantages will have CL saving those school buses gas bill.
Road games to Wimberley and Blanco for the pre-district contests will feel like two more home games with those two schools with a less than 30 minute drive.
Should be another good season for all the Hawk Sports as Canyon Lake starts their second decade of competition.

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.”
