That was when she started the 440s and her mother Larry the coach at Dobie Middle School in lives down the street three miles and used to see her running back and forth to her friends house and told me he thought shed make a great long distance runner and wanted to try her in the first time she ran she ran a 440 at Judson and it was like I walked up to coach Smith and whispered to him how far is a 440 He said it was once around the track and I said all the way around the track Thats too far for my little she went out and ran the whole thing and when she got through her face was I went running out there and grabbed her after the race was over she placed third and then coach said lets let her do the I looked at him like he was nuts and said theres no way shes going to do the 880 Cant you see

there for a dramatic finish four former Masters champions separated by only two shots going into the final Seves birdieeagleparbirdie magic on the first four holes quickly took care of that as the handsome Spaniard outdistanced three of the games top players and strolled to a rather easy fourshot victory Monday in the seasons first major golf I played 4under the first four and I think that was probably the Ballesteros That put me 9under and put my confidence straight It also put more pressure on the third round Raymond Floyd and Craig playing one group behind and on playing partner Tom who had hoped to capture his third Masters The 26yearold who also won this tournament in lost that threeshot advantage only once the rest of the That came when Watson knocked in a 3540foot eagle putt on the par 5 eighth to move within two shots of the a Watson charge wasnt to Ballesteros rolled in a 15foot birdie putt on the ninth and one of the games top lost his touch on the He threeputted 9 and 11 and also bogeyed the and the game was over for the reigning and British Open Stadler and Floyd never got anything and the only ones who Ben Crenshaw and Tom were too far back for it to Ballesteros closed with a 69 for an 8 under 280 total in the daylate finish on the stillsoggy Augusta National Golf Club Crenshaw had the low round of the a and Kite fired a 69 as the two tied for second place at Watson and Floyd finished at 285 with scores of 73 and and the defending struggled to a 76 and was tied at 286 with Hale who had a Watson closed to within three shots with a birdie on the but had a double bogey 6 on Watson said the 14th sealed the The lights went I told my caddy after 13 that from here to the last hole we have to play in Ballesteros I Who are these guys in Ranger uniforms Suff

place The biggest comeback of them all was Sunday when the Rangers spotted the Boston Red Sox seven runs and charged back to win who was never known to accept losing gracefully in his playing days with the Houston started shouting in the dugout after Boston piled up the big He wasnt he was just shouting said Bill Stein got the He delivered the gamewinning RBI in the bottom of the eighth Buddy the Rangers Gold Glove third baseman and longtime sufferer through Texas losing I dont think you would have seen last year what happened here Rader made all the right moves in his first full week as

ball came right at It caught me I couldnt get off the ground to get Im generally happy with my Knepper but Im not overjoyed we lost They lost it in the llth when Julio Solano walked wildpitched him to
