Mountain Valley Dominate SV Rangers in Win, 15-1

Mountain Valley Lady Hawks Softball Win District

                              Mountain Valley Lady Hawks Softball Win District

Mountain Valley took SV Rangers to the cleaners after swamping the home team, 15-1 in completing their undefeated season.

Earlier this year, the Hawks escaped with a 12-11 win over Smithson Valley, which was as close any team would get to Mountain Valley Middle School.

On Saturday, Mountain Valley had a statement game as they had seven outs in the 4 inning affair as the Hawks were capped with 5 runs in three of the four innings played.

Maddy Puente and Kensie Sayles combined for a 4 hitter in this mercy game with a total dominating win over the Rangers.

Last season, Mountain Valley was denied a first place finish by this same club as the Hawks had plenty motivation in wanting to complete this season with this victory.

Mountain Valley started off strong with a lead off walk and 5 singles while only having one out when Chelsea Tschoepe scored stopping the inning.

SV Rangers scratched across one run on two singles with their half of the first inning and that score would be all she wrote for the home team.

Going into the 3rd inning, the Hawks, started strong again when Puente was first up with a triple.

Adrianna Peaslee was up next with a single to drive in Puente. Peaslee finished the day with 3 hits and 3 rbi’s.

After a Hawk out, the next 5 batters would get a hit as this game was quickly getting out of hand with no MV batter being struck out.

Another 5 run inning and a comfortable 10-1 lead going into the bottom of the 3rd inning.

Mountain Valley changed pitchers as Puente took 3rd base while Kensie Sayles

would finish the next two innings.

In the bottom of the 3rd inning, Sayles started off allowing two singles. However, that would be the extent of the Rangers damage as two fly-outs and 4 strikeouts would put the Rangers out of their misery in those last two innings.

Only a walk in the bottom of the 4th as Sayles struck out the side against the other SV batters.

“I was going for spotting the ball,” Sayles said like a crafty pitcher that struck out the side to end the game.

Meanwhile, Mountain Valley would all but clinch their title with another 5 run 4th inning.

In what would be the last inning, Peaslee would touch all the bases after a line shot to left field that only had the outfield fence able to stop the screamer hit.

Peaslee was non-stop around the bases as she hit an inside the park homer to the delight of her teammates and the Hawk crowd.

“Amazing feeling,” Peaslee said with excitement. “I felt the hit and getting all the way home was amazing.”

“Last year, we lost to Smithson Valley, which kept us from winning it all,” Peaslee commented. “We wanted to get this win….this game we were ready to dominate and wanted to finish this season strong….we wanted to go all the way and not just halfway.”

The stunned silence from the Smithson Valley side of the stands was the price of admission on a day your Hawks would silence the Ranger team after turning this game to a laugher.

Only two Mountain Valley players were not able to get a base hit, but those two at bats did not go to waste as Landry Brown’s sacrifice flyball scored Madi Row who opened with a single.

Patrice Martinez was not allowed a chance to hit as she was walked and she stole a base and scored later in the inning.

If you want to know what dominance looks like then be sure you have some water close by as you try to digest these numbers:

                      game batting stats

 batting average   on base percentage   slugging percentage
       .720             .750                  .960

Those 4 hits Smithson Valley recorded for the game was less than the number of hits the Hawks accumulated in 3 of their innings.

This game was bound to be over after the 4th inning as there were other forces that would be sure this game went no further as the lightning and rain started soon after the umps called the game due to that 14 run lead.

“I hope I can be the best pitcher next year and strike out more players for outs,” Pitcher Peaslee said unabashedly.

A banner year for a group of ladies that dominated district opponents from Cuero to Middle Schools that feed into 6A schools.

That beacon of light seen by Hawk parent’s going home was the collective smiles of Canyon Lake Coaches who will be welcoming in a wealth of talent for the coming years.

Next school year can not get her soon enough for the sports addicts, but some of you can be excused if you want to take a couple of months off before making your trek to Canyon Lake High School

Congrats on another District Championship and Go Hawks!!

MVMS Softball Hates to Lose, Beat Canyon, 8-0

Friday, May 13th, 2016
Marley Carrizales and Maddy Puente next stop will be at Canyon Lake HS

Mountain Valley Hawks dam up Canyon to make a Lake in 8-0 victory to remain undefeated this season.

MV now has a 7-0 record going into their last game this Saturday with a chance of finishing this season with an unblemished record.

“They all hate to lose,” Head Coach Jacque Scott said lovingly. “It takes a lot of hard work in practice and they have grown as a team.”

Coach Scott continued, “They have all done a great job and by working hard they have definitely been a team thing.”

A paltry 2 hits was all Canyon could muster in this loss as Mountain Valley’s defense kept the water from spilling over as each facet of the Hawk’s game was in high gear.

Starting pitcher, Maddy Puente was on this night and helped start what would turn out to be a dominant performance as she has a chance of having her sister, Kaylee Puente as her catcher.


CrawFish Run to a Great Success

The ReSporter: How did this year stack up with your previous years?

Craw Martelli: “The 9th annual Crawfish Boil was a great year! The 7th Annual was a good year but it falls short of this years success. We boiled up 1200lbs this year and sold every last one ,compared to 750lbs in 2013.”

The ReSporter: Compare your first year with this last Saturday’s Crawfish.

Craw Martelli: “The first boil was just 4 family’s eating crawfish in the back yard and maybe finishing off two sacks-70lbs. Comparing it to HCB #9,……. it would be like me comparing the Slot -T offense to a Spread offense, Veer or three separate offense but its all football, ya just cant compare them as far as fundraising goes. However, its always goodtime to hang out with all your friends for a good cause- CL Athletics.”

The ReSporter: Having the event at Brookshire’s had to be a boost based on their location and how they support the Hawks, do you think that had anything to do with this year’s event?

Craw Martelli: “Brookshire Brothers really came through for us and the community. They are 100% behind our CLHS and its causes. Kenneth Moore the store Manager and Kaci Spence – the Lakeside Café and Bar Manager, really opened up the doors for us and the crowds kept coming steadily all day until 8pm. This location helped drive out of town people into the event and it helped the cash register chiming along, at least that’s what Dr. Hartman said, they keep me in the back and don’t let me out much.” (more…)

The Hilltop news sat down with founder and head cook “Martelli” of the beloved mud bugs and got a candid interview on this annual CL fundraiser.

Crawfish Boil is coming this Saturday with All Proceeds going to Hawk Sports

                                        Crawfish Boil is coming this Saturday May 7th

The ReSporter: So when did this all get started and why:

Martelli: “Since there was not a lot of people around the CL area who love bugs, a group of parents got together for the love of the bugs and invited others over to enjoy fellowship and talk about our new high school and little league sports while the kids all played around. The first year was the spring of 2008. It all started off pretty simple; we wanted to eat crawfish and no one around here even sold them, so necessity is the mother of all inventions, so we rolled forward.”

The ReSporter: Since that initial event, when did this event evolve into what it is today?

Martelli: “Well the first few years it was just a bunch of friends getting together to generate friendship spirit, a get together for everyone, something these parts are not known for especially back in those days. As word got out each year it grew and one day we thought there should be a charge for folks to come and give money away for the youth around here for sports.” (more…)

MVMS Tracksters Score Well in District Meet

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016


Mountain Valley Middle School was busy in Wimberley last Friday as their District Track Meet had all hands on deck for this event.

“We are really proud of how all of our kids competed at the district meet,” Athletic Coordinator Brandon Pawelek said. “They worked hard all season and we had quite a few personal records throughout our boys and girls teams……We had school records set by Nic Rivera in both 110 and 300 meter hurdles, as well as, Devon Cordell in the discus as well as both 7th and 8th grade girls 4×100 meter relay teams.”

MV Hawk Proud

The Hawks had several athletes that excelled on Friday with Rivera topping all MVMS students scoring 28 points after combining all events Rivera was entered.

Those boys hurdles will be busy next year for Canyon Lake as that is presently the best part of the Hawks high school team headlined by Brandon Courtney.

Well, Rivera served notice that he is ready to make his mark after setting MVMS bests in those events with two 1st place finishes.

Canyon Lake Sports start to wind down as the Hawk Softball team will playing their last game of the season on Tuesday in La Vernia.ads-300-x-600

This was a difficult year for Hawk Softball as this team had a very successful pre district record but just could not get out of the circle in district play.

What made last week win over Wimberley so satisfying was that the win was against the Texans and that would be the last district game for the next two years since Canyon Lake will moving west for their district games.

Baseball is entering into their last 3 games with one game this week in La Vernia and then an off day on Friday.

CL will have their last week of action next week when they play Yoakum away and then Senior Day with Gonzales on that Friday.

Track & Field will be in action in Liberty Hill this Thursday as the Hawks will do battle with District 25-4A Schools and our district qualifiers for a chance to compete the next week in TAMU-Kingsville.

Canyon Lake has a chance of sending several athletes this Thursday as the Hawks will need to finish in the top 2 to keep their eyes on getting to Austin.

The ReSporter added some Mountain Valley schedules for this week as you can have a chance of seeing some future CLHS Hawks compete.

Go Hawks!!

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?
