Canyon Lake’s Softball team lost 3 players to graduation from last year’s Bi-District Finalist team that finished with a 19-10-1 record.

It was the first time that both Baseball & Softball made the post-season during their same campaign.

                    Way to go Hawks!!

It was a pretty good overall year with a group of ladies who finished as a team with the 2nd Best Batting Average (.369) behind the 2019 team (.397) but when you delve deeper, last year’s team finished first all-time in On Base Percentage (.481) and Slugging Percentage (.545) in Hawk history.

In the circle, The Lake, was middle of the road with a 4.33 earned run average. If the Hawks were not on fire in the batting box then a much worse record would have been the result.

Giving up right at 7 runs per outing compared to scoring at a 7.66 runs per game average. Being on the plus side would be the end result for that stat.

The Hawks had 8 players that finished with a .300 average (with more than 15 at bats)or higher and 2 of those players graduated for hopefully greener pastures.

This team is young and will be returning all their pitchers which is good news in having another year of pitching to help lower that team 4.33 era.

Notice the 4.33 era compared to allowing 82 more runs due to an error from bad fielding.

                    Let’s GO HAWKS!!

That will be the main focus for this season as a better fielding team would turn many of last year’s losses to wins and a further ride into that Post-Season Sunset.

Another item to be looking for is having those Freshman & Sophomores from last year’s team being able to continue a good regular season into a stronger district. Consistency would be a key in seeing this team continue to improve with an overall better season.

For a strong lineup the Hawks have shown some signs that might continue when you look at the number of walks a hitter has compared to striking out.

A player that can have a plus with more walks, then it puts pressure on the opposing team, in fielding and that helps moving players around those bases even when the result is a ground or fly out.

Look at these stats from last year for Gabby Barnes.

                            Number of           % chance of
                BB   K’s   plate appearances  +/- striking out
Gabby Barnes    10   4            99          +       6       0.04%

Add that with the following percentages of a player walking back to the dugout after a strikeout.


Last Year            K’s    plate appearances   percentage
Alysa Johnson        10             78             12%
Shelby Porter        15             82             18%
Gabby Rivera         12             64             19%
Madison Hartman      21             91             23%
Aubrey Long           2             13             23%
Rianna Gonzales      20             85             24%

The ReSporter had heard from softball coaches and they deduced that a player would be classified that having a 25% strikeout ratio or lower would be a good sign for a chance to put an opposing team in peril.

                     Way to Go Hawks!!

As a team Canyon Lake had an exemplary 16% chance getting a strike out per plate appearance. That shows a team that had a good percentage of putting a ball in play hence the .481 on base percentage.

CL had a successful first scrimmage against Pieper and continued that same format in games with Blanco/Cuero.

This week the Hawks will play at the Hawk Nest against Abilene (2pm) and Southside (6pm) on Thursday. On Friday the Comal Classic will continue with a game with Alamo Heights (2pm) and then Westlake (6pm).

Seeding will determine who the Hawks will play on Saturday.

Below are some All-Time Stats Top 10 and how close some present players (in Hawk Green) stand on those lists.

Let’s Go Hawks!!
