Comal County high school basketball season came to an abrubt halt in Kerrville on Friday following New Braunfels If the 198687 season seemed a tad it was for the first time in recent no local team made it to the And if the season seemed unusually long for some it was for the same But the six local teams did not go down without a especially the teams from New Braunfels High the Unicorn boys were disappointed after their loss to the Tivy a defeat which dropped the team from a threeway tie for first into sole possession of third place and a spec tators spot in the playoff But the team came a long way to get especially after having lost four starters and the head coach from the team which was fighting its way into the state semifinals this time last With precious little varsity experience to go around and a brand new New Braunfels was not expected to be be in the upper echelon of the a status it truly deserved by years The Unicorn girls were favored to be among the best teams in this

struggle in its first season in Class Only a late ninegame losing string sent the team into a threeway tie in the At one point the Rangers were 34 in 134A games and had given New Braunfels the scare of the The Unicorns turned fourthquarter comebacks into an art but New Braunfels 5O48 win over Smithson Valley was as close to the edge as a team can get and still get a return The Hangers werent the most talented team to suit out they played well as a When they were there wasnt a more enjoyable group to Canyons girls finished in the middle of the pack this year with a 79 flirting with the mark ail season but never quite pass ing Because the volleyball team reached the state the Cougarettes first day on the court turned out to be the district No scrim no nondistrict not even a tourna Canyon

games without a To their the Cougarettes were never a The Boerne and Fredertcksburg had to be ready to play and the team always made their opponents Canyons boys team had more than a few obstacles thrown its way during the not the least of which was having only two seniors DER YL Photographer on the entire To say the district season got off to a rocky start is to put it mildly the Cougars were
