CL Hawk’s Girls Soccer Exceeded Expectations

Lady Soccer is Area Champs after 8-0 win over SA JFK. Go Hawks!!


The Canyon Lake Lady Soccer team had a successful season with a record 18 wins this year after losing a good senior class in 2023.

                Way to Go Hawks!!

Playing in one of the toughest districts in the state, The Lake was able to hold on and qualified with a 4th place finish. Yes, a Bi-District win over a Burnet team that finished first in their district would give a taste on how hard of a road this young team traversed.

The ReSporter caught up with Soccer’s Head Coach Kara Stracener for her thoughts after bowing out in the third round in the playoffs.

The ReSporter:  First, would you comment on your seniors and what they meant to CL’s team?

Coach Stracener: “As I told the team last night after our loss…when our seniors were freshman was the start of this program becoming a winning program.  Their hard work and leadership have been a huge part of the success of the past four years and setting the tone and the bar for players that continue to come through.”

The ReSporter:  Did you reasonably expect to make it this far this season based on the youth of the team and why or why not.

           Go Hawks & Way to Fly High!!

Coach Stracener: “The team surpassed my expectations this year…with only 9 returners the freshman and new to Varsity came in and made an immediate impact and continued to improve and grow as players and as a team throughout the season.”

The ReSporter  What are you expecting for the new crop of players from middle school, I have heard this class has some more good lady athletes.

Coach Stracener: “I am excited for these 8th graders.  I think there is a good group that has a lot of potential.  With high school soccer, just like this year, there are always a few potential freshman that can come and compete for spots on Varsity.” 

The ReSporter: What will be your main concerns for building next year’s team?

                              Go LAKE!

Coach Stracener: “I don’t know if they are concerns, but the big things to think about each year are…what roles and holes do we need to fill that the seniors left?  After that we start thinking of who can fill those roles and holes. And then formation(s) we can possibly play to play to our strengths, which can typically change throughout the season.” 

The ReSporter: Any other thoughts that you would like to share? that would be great for the Hawk Nation to know….

Coach Stracener: “It was a record-breaking year!  We had more wins in program history (18) the past two years we have had 13 wins, more goals in program history (106) last year we had 81, Savanna broke the goals in a season record (55) her sister set it the last two seasons with 30 and then 32, and she also broke goals in one game (6) her sister had it last year with 5, and then we had our first tournament championship win ever at the Katy i-10 Shootout in preseason.”

More good times on the horizon and as always, Way to Go Hawks!!

                    Go Hawks & Go Fast!

Canyon Lake had a tune-up Track Meet in Wimberley this past Thursday and finished in second place after posting 167 points.

The Lake scored 35 points in the Sprints, 20 for the hurdles, 38 on the distance events and finished with 44 points scored  in the relays.

Counting the Girls JV those distance events totaled 58 points showing the strength for those students taking parti in those longer runs.

Counting both Varsity & Junior Varsity, The Lake had 23 different ladies scoring points that had Sophomore Savanna Olberholtzer (28 pts/5 events) leading the Varsity and Jazlyn Kearney (18 points/3 events) just topping Haley Petty (17 points/3 events) and Zoe O’Neal (17 points/3 events.

                      Let’s Go Hawks!!

O’Neal was the only JV Athlete to finish 1st when she ran a 2:44.42 her 800 meter run.

Caiden Ocanas (10 points) was the other JV Athlete who finished with double figures.

The Lake’s Varsity totaled a first place in 8 events and two athletes (Cadence Patterson and Ayren Lightfoot) were standing on that first place podium in 3 events a piece.

Future University of Houston athlete, Patterson is taking those long distance runs to task as she is now leading the CL All-Time charts in the following.

*Indicates Present Runners

Freshman Eva Zabarcencu is one of many Lady Hawks breaking the tape at Track Meets this season.

CLake’s mile relay was just off, .59 of a second from taking over last year’s foursome that qualified for State last season. Three in last year’s group returned and Patterson replaced Alencia Lentz who finished 1st Place in this year’s Big 12 Indoor Track Meet for the Baylor Bears in her pole vault specialty.

Avey (300 Meter Hurdles) and Lightfoot (200 & 400 Meter Dash) have now lowered CL’s All-Time marks in those categories.

So many Lady Hawks that continue to have personal bests (pr’s) with each week blazing a new trail on CL’s All-Time lists.

The key will see if these results continue to improve thus showing there are still more records as a possibility as District-Area-Region Meets results in having more entries at this year’s State Meet in Austin.

  *Indicates Present Runners

Canyon Lake will send several athletes to this week’s Texas Relays in Austin and will be in Comfort this Wednesday for a practice meet.

Distriict 27-4A Meet will be held at Wimberley on April 3-4 to give the local Hawk Nation two close venues to catch some great athletes.

February 16-17-18th
                 Canyon Lake vs  *Bandera
                 * If Boerne wins



Three weeks ago, The Lake, had a myriad of ways for a chance to earn a right to make the post-season in Boys Basketball.

The Hawks did start their playoff last Friday when they had a ‘must win’ situation which in reality is what this time of year presents for having a chance being able to continue their season.

C-Lake was able to take that next step beating Navarro, 62-45 and that now the Hawk Nation is waiting results of the Boerne/Bandera game this Tuesday (Feb. 13th).

If Bandera can pull off a win then Canyon Lake will need to wait another year… but the chances of having a play-in contest has the odds on Canyon Lake’s side based on Boerne coming into this battle undefeated and 12th ranked based on tabchoops.org.

Authentic Canyon Lake says Let’s Go Hawks & Don’t Forget Valentine’s Day!!

In this Hawk’s Navarro win, Carter Williams finished with his 6th double-double this year finishing with 17 points and 14 rebounds. As a team, CLHS topped 42 rebounds with Mario Aguilar (11) bounds.

This game CL got separation after the Panthers tied the score 7 all with 5:30 left in the quarter. In dominant fashion The Lake finished this opening period with a, 11-2 stretch.

During this season, Canyon Lake’s worse two quarters have been the 2nd & 3rd stanzas…so it was good to see CL fashioning a 16-8 quarter and halftime, 34-17 advantage.

That dominance would continue as these Hawks increased the lead to 23 points to end the 3rd period when Aguilar sank two free throws, 50-27.

CL’s largest lead was 25 points to start the last 8 minutes before Navarro’s last rush closing the gap with a Hawk 17 point victory, 62-45.

                  Way to Go Hawks!!

CLHS would use their bench depth after seeing a Logan Lewis pass to Ryan Alvarez for two points that brought the Hawk bench to their feet and final score conclusion.

The Hawk bench ended this contest scoring 18 points as Coach Monte Cole used different line-ups to fine-tune this game with an anticipated game with Bandera.

It will be known late Tuesday night when Canyon Lake finds out if they can continue their pre-playoff-playoff run with another win against those Bandera Bulldogs.

Keep in touch with The ReSporter as we post the date and time of CLHS next game if warranted.

If CLHS Boy’s Basketball team is fortunate to play this week it will represent the 500th game in Hawk history. A chance to start that next 500 contests with a special win that will have CL making their 5th year in the playoffs.

A bit of forward thinking has this possibility (using the Jethro Bodine math formulas) for the Bi-District round if CL can be so inclined in taking care of business against Bandera.

Let’s Go Hawks!!

Texans:     (4-5) CL Hawks,  Billies,   Davenport
Billies:    (3-6) Boerne,    Texans,    Navarro

       Go Hawks & Beat the Texans!!

Get your slide rule or abacas out…or for the hip audience ask ‘Alexa’ or you can activate your AI for these next questions on who might qualify for those last playoff spots.

Boerne and Davenport has shored up those first two places while your Hawks along with Bandera-Wimberley-Fredericksburg facing a tag-team wrestling bout for a spot.

This is what we do know:

1)  If The Lake can win their next two contests then they would secure the 3rd seed. Control their own spot….

Looking at the schedule above there are several other scenarios.

2) Take into account that Boerne and Davenport have a chance with wins against all 4 teams above.

3) We know games that involve playing Navarro give a  favorable chance for a win.

(CL did win that first round bout with the Panthers but this 2nd round in district has

             Go Hawks Beat the Texans!!

produced nothing, to brag about as a Hawk fan, as they still search for that win. Plus this game is on the road)

The Hawks will need a, take no prisoners mind-set, in that battle and quite frankly for the whole week.

There is a chance in having 2, 3 or 4 teams being tied on February 13th. That would require those teams playing on Thursday-Friday or Saturday to untie this knot. One game for sure….two games if there are 3 or 4 teams tied. This scenario would also involve coin flips.

A four way tie would involve the Billies finishing 2-1 which would leave the Texans with another loss to go along with the Hawks win on Tuesday against our Back-Bone neighbor.

Bandera has the biggest hurdle this week facing both front running schools and those possible losses resulting with another 5-7 district record.

The only way a school can avoid playing an extra game to qualify is by winning both games against that opponent to break that tie. Hence, if CLHS can beat Wimbo then they would secure that spot for 3rd place based on Bandera also losing both of their games.

Confused yet? There will be a lot of  ‘what is happening around the league’  chatter for these next 3 dates.

The Lake and Bandera are the only two schools that have two more contests.

One last thought to take note:

A win by any of the 3 schools over Davenport or Boerne would go a long way for securing a spot for that school.

Wimberley plays Davenport.
Fredericksburg plays Boerne.
Bandera plays both schools.

Make the trip to Wimberley to give your Hawks a boost this coming Tuesday and Let’s Go Hawks!!
