**Canyon Lake Ladies Track Team finished 1st at this year’s Area Meet.

               Way to GO FAST HAWKS!!

Canyon Lake had 7 ladies punch their ticket for the Region Meet to be held in Kingsville on the Texas A&I campus on Friday the 19th of April.

In the Relays this season, The Lake, set all-time times in those 3 events and It was the 4×100 relay that saved their best for this Area Meet after entering the Meet as an alternate team after Boerne had to bow out because of a soccer conflict.

That had Oberholtzer. Sofia George and Abigail Lowth adding Lightfoot to their first leg which led to a Hawk record breaking time.

All three relays have lowered their record times these last two years.

This season top times in the following events and where Canyon Lake stands for the Region Meet


    Event      Region 4 Best               Hawk Best
100 Meter      12.01 Freeport Brazosport   Savanna Oberholtzer 12.17

4x100 Relay    47.48 Royal                 Lightfoot-Lowth     49.71 
4x400 Relay  4:00.71 Sealy                 Avey-Hammer       4:01.56 

In the last two meets the top 4 performers were able to move to that next rung on a ladder. For the Region Meet that margin of error is cut down to those top 2 for each event and making that ultimate state meet on May 2nd in Austin.

Canyon Lake has some legitimate chances of getting that chance to compete for The Meet.

The Hawk’s Boys had two that qualified for this Meet and both scored when Trevin Cutrer ran a 11.13 time for a 6th place finish and that time put Cutrer with the 5th best time.

Freshman Anthony Hockman got his first taste competing in an essential Bi-District type of sport with a chance to improve as he continues to work on his high jump event. Finishing 4th will give this young man more experience as he qualified for Region. Congrats Anthony!!

The ReSporter has several interviews these past two meets of Hawk Athletes on Instagram and X.
