MATHIS The Canyon Cougarettes were as serious as a summit conference Tuesday Canyon blocked out all the distractions and there were more than a few and wiped out the Rio Grande Ci ty in an area volleyball playoff match at Mathis High The decision sends the Cougarettes into the regional playoff the equivalent of the state quarterfinals Saturday against South San which beat Brownsville Pace Tuesday in Canyon overcame some Heavyhanded intimidation some petty annoyances and a ceiling that at times seemed to be creeping Closer to the We were very determined to play Canyon Coach Donna Boehle We had heard a lot about this but we wanted to play our style and not fall into their Or into their mind The Rattlers coach tried to intimidate Boehle as futile as trying to stare down a statue as well as bully the Rio Grande city also posted cheerleaders to try and distract Canyons Nothing worked on the who stoically roll Statistics Canyon Rio City points Canyon A A B K Nancy Tieken 3 0 6

started a little bit at the end of the first game and the start of the The turning point of the match came early in the se cond game after a Canyon time Two Cougarettes had just bumped into each other on a and the ball soared up and bounced off the ceiling beams for a point to make it After the time out and one exchange of Canyon scored three quick points on an ace from Nancy a hard shot from Liana Tyler and a Rio Grande City dink that fell out of The Rattlers narrowed the score to 96 when Canyon hit the ball into the but the Cougarettes shut them out the rest of the way while slowly building the Every time Rio Grande City got the Canyons defense would pick it pass well and get the ball to one of its hitters for a The Cougarettes made it 106 on a kill by then 12 6 on an ace from the senior and a kill by A Rio Grande City mistake pushed the score to and Tyler scored on a sliding After a Rattler time Tyler repeated her ace to end the All the girls have different styles to their serves some tail some Boehle We served so Canyon won the first game on its posting an amazing 10 Shiela Tara Cappleman and Kim Krieg all scored aces in the first as the Cougarettes serving stunned the And when they werent shocked by the they were surprised at the variety of hits they saw from the Cougarette Tieken pounded the ball in the first bouncing one hit off a Rio Grande City players And when she wasnt ripping the somebody else Shiela Soechting uncorked some shots and that kept them off Boehle I dont think they were expecting the ball to come from over much less come with that much speed and from that Cheryl Butler also had a kill that surprised the Rattlers in the first Canyon simply ran off and hid in the grabbing a quick 61 lead before the Rattlers could call time out and then running up the In the Cougarettes 131 no player served more than three but every server was And when the Rattlers did get into their Ca nyons defense picked up the ball and kept the Cougaret tes in Im relaxed but tomorrow Ill get tense Boehle David King Cougars set to explode All Canyon football Coach Troy Burch has been talking about the Cougars putting it all playing a complete ballgame on of fense and defense on the same Burch doesnt think the Cougars have done There have been nights when they came like the first week of the season against Gon zales or the wipeout of Kerrville But theres always been something something that keeps the Cougars from pushing on through to that supreme Some it was a lack of In one it was something completely out of their control the this may be the And it couldnt come at a better since Canyon is playing Fredericksburg for a spot in the Quarterback Danny who can give the Cougars a major threat throwing the is back and working out Halfback Danny who is a shifty runner and always a threat to throw the is mobile And the people who have filled in for injured players are playing Quarterback Kody Smith made Lockhart change its entire defense with his Wade Jankowski has run Brad Campbell may have found his stride last week before knocking himself The Cougars have a chance to have that game on combining their overpowering running game with Hernandez But do they have the juice on defense Look at last weeks They stopped Robert Thompson time after and they harassed quarterback Bubba Kanemeier when he went back to Pressure on the quarterback is the If the Cougars can pressure the Fredericksburg quarterbacks and sack them on the defense can have Us best night of the And for it wont come any too By the ail the Cougars need Friday night is a since they have a onegame lead on the Billies right But dont look for Canyon to play for a At New the Unicorns and the Hays Rebels will play out the opposite ends of the New Braunfels is getting ready for the playoffs while Hays has been out of the race since close losses to Fredericksburg and Lockhart early in district Hays isnt the kind of team to roll over and play dead for but the Rebels will have a hard time competing with the Unicorns headto Unicorn quarterback Victor Sierra will be but its not imperative that he play the entire Alan Matney has come through during Sierras showing that he can lead the team Leopards oust Smithson Valley Smithson Valleys Roxanne Wehe bumps match LESLIE the ball back over the net during Tuesdays iyTOMUIINSKI Staff writer SAN MARCOS Smithson Valley must feel like it has been had by the neighborhood La Granges aggressive tactics paid off early as the Leopards wore down the winning the Region IV playoff match 15 11 at Strahan Coliseum Tuesday It was a good effort on our but we were a little tentative early on in the said Smithson Valley Coach Louise La Grange opened the first game by taking a 72 alternating driving kills in the back court with arching dinks which would fall just over the The Rangerettes recovered by making the score 96 with a block and a kill by Laurie Hughes and a service ace by Michelle but the Leopards regained the momentum with three Rangerette miscues and a kill by Stephanie After a block by Shalynn McCoy for the a kill by La Granges Melba Homer made the score Smithson Valley fought taking the next seven points to tie the An ace by Roxanne Wehe and an overzealous kill put the score at After a time Smithson Valley kept the momentum and the ball when back to the hit a twohanded kill that caught the Leopard backcourt After a La Grange set fell into the Wehe drilled another Susan Davis fed Tiffany Beene with an easy kill and the Leopards were forced to call their last time A block by McCoy tied the game at 14 before the Rangerettes finally lost the After a brief ex change of Lesia Henderson recorded a block and Wilson found a hole in the Smithson Valley backcourt to take the first We didnt play our best in the first game but I thought we still could have won We were just Davidson The Rangerettes seemed a little weary in the second as La Grange took a 41 I think we were a little tired in the second game

Davidson A kill by Davis gave the serve back to the who pro mptly took the McCoy and Davis recorded quick kills to make it and after eight serve a La Grange kill in the net and a kill by Hennigar gave Smithson Valley its only After the Leopards tied the score at the teams exchanged serves eight more times before La Grange rattled off three unanswered It seemed we played very good when they had the serve and then when we won it wed slack off a Davidson The Leopards maintained their threepoint lead at but a net violation by Smithson Valley and an ace by Wilson made the score The Rangerettes mounted another but this one also fell La Grange had one block in the net and another out of and a block by Davis cut the lead to Another net violation by Smithson Valley gave the serve back to the who put the game away with a block and a kill by Homer led all players with 10 kills and eight while McCoy led the Rangerettes with six I think we just tried a little too I know that we could beat but not the way we played It was a good they played their hearts And Im very proud that they never gave up in either Davidson talent booming for Lady Longhorns AUSTIN AP The Texas Lady Longhorns are the preseason l pick in womens college basketball and season tickets sales have shat tered previous but Coach Jody Con radt says she hasnt settled on a starting The dilemma is a result of abundant she Thats And I like to give them a month if I can at just seeing what they can do individual is so much talent you want every player to feel like theyve had a chance to see what they can she said Tuesday at a media day a seniorladen team loaded with Lady Longhorn fans have already pur chased season The previous high was with returning AilAmericans Kamie Ethridge and Andrea Lloyd and five starters back from last finished first in the preseason womens basketball poll conducted by Mel Greenberg of the Philadelphia Inquirer for The Associated I think this will be a good I think it is going to be difficult again for us to deal with be ing The last thing we need is to give any of our opponents another cause when they play and thats basically what Conradt Texas was ranked 1 at the close of the regular season last season but fell to Western Kentucky in the Midwest regional I will never get over the Western Kentucky loss because it was a very difficult Con radt Asked if she did not like being rated she You like to be you like for your players to have that kind of vote of con fidence because it gives them that but on the other fans are already star ting to How many times have we gotten there and we havent been able to do it Think about How many times have we had a realistic chance at winning the national championship In my once last And yes we Among the seniors is Annette an Ail American two years ago who has been rehabilitating an injured knee for 19 Conradt said Smith is doing very She will I cant tell that shes lost very Halfcourt she still looks Fullcourt she is running
