Id say well be pretty competitive at I think well get some people to but thats where it he As far as state is I think it will be tougher because there are more people who are as Despite the tougher Hansen said he would not dismiss possibilities of returning to the state especially with a junior and a sophomore returning with state I think Robin and Amy have the best chance for but who he Boys Continued from 9 also be running two of those Well see where the points are and try to put them in where we can get some without sacrificing a chance for them to go to he One place where the Unicorns might pile up some points is in the Behind the probable district are Randy Watson and Lance Sim inonds said any three of those four jhave a chance to I Starnes and Matt Walters will enter the shot and could place behind heavy favorite Bryant Bailey of f They could be very competitive 5 in the Simmonds said of his You probably wont their names on any summary right up until In the the team is thin in the long and triple aside from Hud gins and Schriewer in the long Hudgins and Jeb Breda could place in the high and freshman Bret Riedel may jump on varsity as The intermediate running distances may be the teams biggest far as putting together a mile relay Freshman Nick Buske is a promising as is Ray Rayos a senior who hasnt run track Right we dont have two other legs that can be Weregoing to run but we dont have a good mile relay at The teams lack of Sim monds makes the chances of winning an invitational But because few of the district teams should have heavy turnouts the Unicorns should still be a force at the district New Braunfels may not have a good idea of what to expect in Except for the Uni corns are not likely to see any of the other district teams before the 255A And we wont see any results because theyll be running against Judson and MacArthur and all of the competitive San Antonio he Were not going to know what were up against until the day of the district This more than weve got to be concerned with our own per formance as opposed to their perfor because we wont know what their performance Simmonds said East Central and Seguin will be the teams for New Braunfels to The Hornets he has will be depen dent on how many athletes come out for track and how many stay The Matadors are the defending champion of their more than tripling the finish of runnerup South San last What the other schools will have is some good individuals to get their he I think thats the way South McCollum and maybe even San Mar cos will with two or three real good A case in point is who last year accounted for 18 of McCollums 35 district points with his shot and discus South San has a simi larly talented athlete in defending reg ional 800meter run champion Richard If we had our usual I would be feeling real Sim monds Theres not a track power in this district there are some occasional good like Seguin and East But year in and year there arent any like Kerrville or what I think we Though Simmonds said the team needs to get every point he noted that the main thing is for the Unicorns to perform at their regular level on the day of the district If youre jumping youve got to jump 21 that he You cant jump Weve just got to do what weve been But Simmonds said the Unicom tradition has been to exceed expecta tions at district something he hopes carries over to this years Theres always one disappoint ment and some good The kids perform real well they have for us at district he Im con but I feel good about our Briefly MV Bowling Club forms new league The Mission Valley Bowling

I was in the leftmost of Houstons jLoop 610s four so I was hemmed in on the left by a massive concrete My only choice was to hit the And if I did the patchy lice that had contributed to the Old ismobiles demise would surely do the same to I was about to be in a headon colli 1 sibn with that I still am not sure exactly what had Apparently another merging Ifrom the hit the ice and slid into starting the t I MY MIND raced With plummeting and freez ing rain Id decided I should slip into Houston from Clear which had been my home until ji moved to New Braunfels two weeks ago and pick up the 91 Mercury Sable station wagon assigned me by jFord Motor before the weather made me a shut Getting into Houston had been no though the rain had begun ljust about the time I passed the In that split second before I hit the I cursed my Why hadnt I just stayed home Then I did what I knew I shouldnt but what was the only option left I hit the Sable wagons brake And instantly I knew everything I knew that because I felt the pedal i characteristic of an antilock And I knew that though I knew I was riding on the same slick surface that had been the Oldsmo biles I never even came close to losing The Sable slowed just enough to let the car on my right pull with it out of my I was able to steer that brand new Mercury wagon into the lane that gave As I pulled past the I could see the terrified look on the face of the woman who had been driving in the Sables rearview I could see two other cars up against the con crete barrier on the other side of the Thanks to that Sables antilock braking I had just emerged unscathed from the very heart of a multicar accident on a Houston WELL THE next car I buy have antilock brakes Take a wild On the Sable the antilock brakes are an option that adds just less than to the cars sticker I guarantee you the accident I didnt have would have cost more than that quite aside from damage to the what price do you put on your life Ill bet its worth at least isnt it But there is a lot more to like about the Sable wagon than just its In the first it in my opin one of the best looking cars on the road though the design of the Sable and its Ford the is now about five years were introduced in December 1985 as 1986 models it is still a winner both in sales figures and in garnering honors in automotive In spite of the fact that it has hit the five year the which broke ground and set trends when it was still consistently shows up in the annual top ten lists of such And its a comfortable My Wheels family and I used once that pre Christmas to travel to North Texas for the holi The Sable wagon was perfect for such a It swallowed us and all our stuff and there was a lot of my it pampered us on that long and virtually nonstop journey about six much of it in heavy traffic and it delivered us feeling good enough to stay up most of the night and visit with THE SABLES standard powerp a 3liter has been upgraded By DAVID SULLENS for Its multiport fuel

engine is also rated at 140 horsepow but produces 215 footpounds of Also new for 91 is an electronical ly controlled fourspeed automatic overdrive The effectiveness of the Sables ABS is multiplied by the fact that the car has disc brakes all the way around and its frontwheel drive adds still further to the confidence youll feel at the wheel of this Other changes to the Sable for 91 have been It has new hydraulic engine isolated valve covers and doubleisolated strut all intended to improve the quiet and comfort of the cars The base price of our crystal blue test vehicle was As the bottom line
