Varsity Girls Basketball – Westlake @ Dripping Springs

This game started out with Dripping Springs taking an early lead, but by halftime, Westlake had secured a 1o point lead, 24-14. After all was said and done, Westlake ended up winning 55-19, holding Dripping Springs virtually scoreless in the second half. It was a fun game, and the Lady Tigers played with heart, but just didn’t have the skill or strength to beat a team like Westlake.

Congratulations to the Westlake Lady Chaparrals for a very well-played game! Here are a few photos from the action, more can be found at MaxPreps or SmugMug. There’s also some photos from the JV game at SmugMug which was played just before the varsity game.

Varsity Boys Basketball – Lake Travis @ Dripping Springs

Last night’s game between powerhouse Lake Travis and newcomer to 6A basketball, Dripping Springs, was a nail biter, to say the least. The game was fairly close throughout, but in the end, Lake Travis came out on top by a final score of 52-41. Dripping Springs had a slight lead at the end of the first half, but in the second half, and especially in the last period, Lake Travis poured on the heat and finished strong to take the victory.

Varsity Boys Basketball – Dripping Springs vs Akins

Last night’s contest between Dripping Springs and Akins was a fantastic game! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but both teams performed extremely well, resulting in a very tight game, especially in the second half. At the outset, Akins held a slight lead, and by halftime Dripping Springs had narrowed the gap to 2 points. In the second half the score remained extremely close, and in the end Dripping Springs pulled it out 78-76. It was a great game – and both teams played hard. Congratulations to Dripping Springs for pulling out the win!

Varsity Girls Basketball – Wimberley vs Fredericksburg

Last night’s game between rivals Wimberley and Fredericksburg was a high energy performance by both teams, but Fredericksburg dominated through most of the game. Both teams played extremely well, and this was a very exciting game with lots of fast breaks and steals. The Fredericksburg girls showed their polish, and stamina, and after it was over, they won easily, 75-36. Congratulations to the Lady Billies on an impressive win last night!

Varsity Football – Wimberley vs Cuero (Texas 4a Semifinal Playoffs)

Friday’s game between Wimberley and Cuero was definitely an exciting matchup! Both teams have powerful offenses, but in the end, it was Wimberley coming out on top, 42-36.

Cuero actually led most of the game, but Wimberley sparked some good offense in the second half, and their defense held Cuero to only 9 points in the final 2 quarters.

All in all, a very exciting game. Congratulations to Wimberley as they win a trip to the state championship in Dallas on December 16.

Texas Beef Initiative Team Roping

Today I attended a team roping event at the Dripping Springs Ranch Park (have I said how privileged I feel to live so close to such a fantastic facility?) and I have to say it was very exciting. I am always impressed at the skill these riders have, and how they have a special bond with their horses, and today was no different. Very amazing to see – and this group has a pretty amazing story as well. The Texas Beef Initiative actually donates beef to local area food banks to help provide food for those in need around us!

I’ve provided a link above or navigate to to learn more about the good they do in our community helping those in need.

Also, check out what else is happening at the Ranch Park in Dripping Springs on their website: or their Facebook page.

I’ve seen individual roping at rodeos, but team roping is where 2 cowboys work together to rope cattle. The first rider lassos the head/horns, and the second attempts to snag the back leg with his rope (at least that’s what appeared to be happening to a novice like me). One rider can easily handle a calf, but for larger cattle, the team makes things easier. Here are some photos of the exciting action today.

If you’re ever in Dripping Springs, and you see horse trailers parked at the Ranch Park, you can bet something like this is going on inside. Or, better yet, check the Ranch Park calendar and plan to come out some weekend to catch something unique to Texas! And, if you can support the Texas Beef Initiative, please do – you’ll be helping to feed our neighbors in need.

Varsity Girls Soccer: Dripping Springs vs Lehman

The Dripping Springs Varsity Girls Soccer team is doing great this year. They have a 13-0-1 League record this season, and are 18-1-1 overall. They defeated Lehman (Kyle, TX) handily by a score of 7-0 on Friday night. Dripping Springs played hard for the entire game, and passed the ball very effectively against the Lobos.

It was a great game, and I always enjoy seeing the players have fun out there!

Here’s a few photos from Friday night’s action.

Varsity Boys Basketball: Blanco vs TMI-Episcopal

December 5, 2020

Today’s game was very intense, and both teams played well, with TMI leading pretty much for the entire first half. Blanco, however, came back in second half and was able to outlast TMI by a final score of 72-60. It looked to me like Blanco had a slight size advantage under the basket, and just wore TMI out in the 4th period.

Here are some game photos.
