Monday night choosing the school after recruiting visits to SMUandthe Mitchell University of Houston Unicorns stay in playoff hunt with 6452 win over Tivy By RICHARD TUERINA Sports Editor New Braunfels hasnt gone into half time trailing many times this season but the Unicorns did Tuesday night But down by six head coach Cliff Wilkins said he wasnt worried Believe ft or not I felt pretty Wilkins said All we needed to do was step it up defensively and I felt wed be all The Unicorns did step it up then stomped on Kerrville Tivy down the stretch to win 6452 and keep up with Alamo Heights and Boerne in the race for postseason play The Grey hounds beat Clemens Tuesday night knocking the Buffaloes into third place in District 284A Still the Unicorns started off a bit sluggish against Tivy The last meeting between the two teams ended in over time but a strong second half would put the game away for New Braunfels in the third period Mike Sierra led the Unicorns with 22 points David Gomez scored 12 and Shae Wilkins added 11 The Unicorns wanted to come out strong aggressively in the second half It showed The Antlers were just sixof22 in the second half Meanwhile the Unicorns began hitting their outside shots in the third period as well as getting their transition game going with timely steals New Braunfels went on a 72 run to start the third period and threepointer from the left wing gave the Unicorns their first lead of the game 3534 with to go in the period It was back and forth for the next three minutes but a switch in the New Braunfels defense gave the Unicorns the opening they needed Switching from a zone to mantoman in the third period New Braunfels was so suc cessful in stifling the Antler offense that it was able to run mantoman exclusively in the fourth which worked to great success When Shae Wilkins hit from the top of the key to put New Braunfels up for good 3938 with to go in the third the Unicorns went on an 114 run to end the third and start the fourth The Antlers would close to eight points late in the fourth but it was too late to catch the Unicorns We were able to play more aggres sive and started moving the ball Cliff Wilkins said Our being able to play mantoman in the fourth was a big key for us and it had a direct result New Braunfels 64 Kerrville Tivy 52 New BraunfeU Mike Sierra 22 David Gomez 12 Shae Wilkins 11 Albert Munlz 8

Lockhart are in What does this mean to New Braunfels Canyon and Smithson Valley By RICHARD TUERINA Sports SAN ANTONIO how happy you are with the UILs Class 4A Realignment depends on what kind of shoes you wear and on what surface you play Generally speaking the realign ment is great for basketball about the same for volleyball and some what troublesome for football as far as Comal County is concerned Canyon New Braunfels and Smithson Valley all remained in tJistrict 284A which is good news in itself forthe Unicorns who have gone through the last several months wondering whether they would be Class 4 A or 5A under the new system The Unicorns entered a class enrollment figure of near the expected limit for Class 4A classification As it turned out the UTJL made the cutoff point for Class 5 A schools which spared New Braun fels from possibly being moved to a San Antonio district with Jud son MacArthur and Madison or to an Austin district with Bowie and Crockett But football coaches were faced with the immediate problem of fill ing their football schedules for the 1994 season With three sixteam districts in Region IV few schools were left hunting for a fourth and fifth game by the time the realign ments had been handed down Lew Simmonds at New Braun fels Larry Nowomy at Canyon and Larry Hill at Smithson Valley spent most of Tuesday on the phone try ing to secure football games for next year Were having a hard time get ting games as everybody Hill said who added that he thought it unfortunate that the Rangers would nt be able to play traditional schools close by such as Boerne and Clemens he said I never djsajned wed never play people that are J320 miles away Thats disappointing Its hard to imagine District 27 getting on a bus and driving light by New

schools to and added two districts leaving it only two short of the UILs goal of 32 The growth was achieved by adding two new schools to 4A getting 15 schools from 5A and taking 11 from 3 A Also 11 schools from 4A went to 5A and two more went to 3 We just wanted to eliminate some of those byes and I think weve done said Peter Cpntreras assistant athletic director of the UIL the states governing body for high school athlet ics Also being overhauled is sixman football the forgotten game played in rural towns by schools with fewer stu dents than some 5 A teams Fearing that some schools were too
