A look at the class of 2018:
2007 BHS State Champion Softball Team
The 2007 Boerne High softball team is the only squad in Boerne ISD history to ever win a state title in girls athletics.
The Lady Hounds made a historic run during the 2007 season and hit 47 home runs in 47 games. The 47 homers, hit by six different players on the team, was third best all-time nationally and set a greater San Antonio area and state record at the time.
Included on that team were Alex Yarbrough, Cera Southerland, Katelyn Faulkner, Katie Smith, Lacey Palla, Kaitlin Southerland, Ryanne Chapman, Kim LeComte, Ashton Bohnert, Shelbey Veselka, Chelsea Muskopf, Victoria Beltran, Madeline Hurdt and Sara Corcoran.
Jennifer Fox coached the team along with assistants Eddie Salas and Roy Klein.
During that historic year, Boerne High finished the season 38-9 and went 8-2 in district, but didn’t win the district title, however that didn’t matter because once the playoffs began, the Lady Hounds didn’t stop until they claimed the 4A crown.
BHS opened with a first-round win over Edison, 17-1 and 10-0. Up next, the Lady Hounds faced New Braunfels and dropped the first game, 0-1, but won the next two, 4-0 and 2-0.
Boerne swept Dripping Springs in the third round, 8-3 and 5-2 and then faced Corpus Christi Moody in the fourth round. The Lady Trojans took the first game, 4-1, but BHS won the next two elimination games, 5-4, and a tight one in the third game, 1-0, down in Corpus Christi at Cabaniss Field.
After that, the Hounds squared off with Vista Ridge in the regional finals on a Friday night in Brenham and won the opener in their best-of-three series, 5-4.
On Saturday, Vista Ridge took the second game, 4-1, but Boerne closed it out with a 9-1 victory to win their fifth elimination game of the playoffs and advance to the state tournament.
Once in Austin at the 4A state tourney on the UT campus, Boerne High battled Brenham in the state semifinals and took a close one, 3-0, with all three runs coming in the fourth inning to advance to the state finals.
In the championship contest against Denton Ryan, BHS fell behind early after the first Ryan hitter smacked a triple on the first pitch of the game, but BHS managed to eventually tie it at 2-2.
In the third inning, the game turned in Boerne High’s favor after Victoria Beltran belted a three-run shot over the left-field fence for the 5-2 advantage to put the Lady Greyhounds in the driver’s seat. From there, BHS closed it out with a 7-3 victory for the title.
After the state tourney, Beltran was named the 4A Tournament MVP, while Corcoran, LeComte, Kaitlin Southerland, Veselka, Muskopf and Chapman were named to the all-tournament team to give BHS seven of the 10 all-tournament selections.
Eight of the nine starters on that 2007 Boerne High team received college athletic scholarships (one in volleyball) and Coach Fox was named the Texas Sports Writer’s Association 4A Coach of the Year.
Victoria Beltran was a move-in to the Boerne area and came to the school before her junior season and had a great two-year career for the Hound softball team.
During one game her junior season against New Braunfels High, Beltran threw a seven-inning perfect game – 21 up and 21 down – against the No. 1 state-ranked Lady Unicorns.
During her senior year, Beltran was a force for BHS on offense and defense on their way to the title. She led the team in home runs with 13 of their 47 homers that year and batted .493.
On defense, Beltran threw 310 innings that season, fanned 349 batters, had an ERA of 0.99 and also tossed 17 shutouts.
After the year ended at the state tourney, Beltran was voted the 4A State Tournament MVP, was named the 4A Player of the Year by the Texas Sports Writer’s Association and was also named to the 4A Texas Girls Coaches Association All-State Team.
After high school, Beltran played at Texas A&M-International University in Laredo for four years.
Kim LeComte was also a move-in to Boerne High from the state of Georgia before her junior year and played two years at BHS. She was an integral part of the Lady Greyhounds success during their 2007 state title run her junior year.
LeComte hit eight home runs that season, tied for third best on the team, and played centerfield for the Lady Greyhounds. LeComte made a diving catch in the state semifinals game against Brenham during the sixth inning that played a big role in the outcome of that contest.
After the state tournament, LeComte was named to the 4A All-Tournament Team and returned to Boerne for her senior season and helped lead the Lady Hounds to a second-round appearance in the playoffs. She showed her versatility and played outfield and infield for the Greyhounds that year.
When her senior season concluded, LeComte was named to the Texas Girls Coaches Association 4A All-State Team with a .412 batting average.
She went on to star at West Texas A&M and was named a Louisville Slugger/National Fastpitch Coaches Association First-Team All-American, the first at the school to ever receive such an honor.
LeComte was also named to the UIL’s Softball All-Century Third Team for her years in high school.
She recently was Jennifer Fox’s assistant at Johnson High School in San Antonio. LeComte has been recently hired to be a head softball coach in Amarillo.
Justin Cannon was a playmaker on the defensive side of the ball for the Greyhound football team and was a two-time all-state selection by the Texas Sports Writer’s Association before he graduated from Boerne High in 1995.
After his junior year, Cannon was named to the TSWA honorable mention team and following his senior season, Cannon landed on the TSWA second team and was a unanimous first-team all-district selection.
Cannon is the all-time interception leader in Greyhound football history with 19 picks. At one point during his junior season, Cannon was leading the state in interceptions and finish second that season with 11.
Cannon said it was an honor to be selected.
“I loved being a Greyhound and I have many great memories of my coaches and teammates. Playing high school sports taught me many great life lessons,” Cannon said. “I’m very grateful for the opportunity to grow up and be part of this community and I’m very grateful to be inducted.”
Cannon helped lead the BHS football team to a 7-2-1 record his senior season and was also named homecoming king.
