Canyon Lake Ladies Basketball graduated one senior off of last year’s squad and were able to start this year as a younger team.

Take that in and then see a group of ladies that find themselves with a 5-6 record after finishing 2nd in the Johnson City Tournament finishing with a 3-1 record.

Last year Hawk team had several Juniors that have either graduated earlier or chose to concentrate on their favorite sport.

That group had some good players with different strengths that have been missed in starting this year….hence a slower start and a tougher schedule has made that learning curve a little steeper and slower start.

Last year’s Freshman class lost one of their own who transferred to another campus which left another hole to fill on this year’s resume.

                      Way to go Hawks!!

Now CL’s team consists of no seniors, 3 juniors, 6 sophomores, and 2 freshman and a lot of learning for those younger players that are faced with a much faster game than they played in year’s past.

The Lake did a decent job during the JC Tourney but lost in the championship game without the services of Sophomore Ayren Lightfoot who had been present during those 3 wins leading up to the championship game.

A margin of error that is razor then and also suffered during their loss after losing two of CL’s top scorers to foul trouble. It was a 5 point loss that turned into a foul contest in order to have a chance to score for a comeback which did not materialize.

District will begin this week when Canyon Lake goes on the road to Navarro on Tuesday and then will play Nixon this Friday. That will be the Hawks final non-district encounter.

                  Proud of these Hawks!!

Sofia George (12.3 pts per game) and Reece Coburn (11.5 pts per game) has provided most of CL’s offense and Mya Vorhis has been chairman of the boards averaging right at 8 rebounds and just shy of 2 blocks per outing.

Canyon Lake will have their hands full when district starts with three schools in the top 20.

Fredericksburg (11-2 & ranked 2nd), Boerne (7-0 & ranked 5th) and Wimberley (9-0 & ranked 22nd) will be hard to top with Navarro sporting a 12-3 slate.

Pretty tough district to say the least and that will make this year’s learning curve a bit more ominous.
