CLHS Soccer Team Competes in Semi-Finals
Canyon Lake High School Boys Varsity Soccer team competes today against Midlothian Heritage in the 4A State UIL tournament in Georgetown at 6:30 p.m. today.
If they win the semi-final game in the 2019 Boys Soccer State Championship, they’ll move on to play in the final state championship game.
On April 13, they made Canyon Lake High School history by winning the regional final.
“We are incredibly proud and excited for (Head) Coach Ryan Tierney and his soccer team,” said Liana Gombert, director of athletics for the Comal Independent School District. “Winning the regional tournament and advancing to the UIL State Soccer Tournament is a once in a lifetime accomplishment, and the 2019 boys soccer team is the first team in Canyon Lake High School’s history to earn a bid to the state tournament.”
The varsity team won back-to-back regional games earlier this month, beating Gonzales 2-1; the Progreso in the regional final with a score of 1-0.
The Hawks have a season record of 19 wins, five losses and two ties.
