dog days of a scorch ing New Braunfels summer can be quenched several ways Theres the neverending waterpark fun at Schlitterbahn Theres the smooth flow of the Guadalupe river to cool off any tuber and than theres the ever popular staying inside with the air conditioner affect that never fails But for a certain 13 young girls in New Braunfels this summer the only way to beat the heat is to pick up a ball and bat and practice in it Those 13 girls make up the New Braunfels Stars 12andUnder AllStar softball team The NB Stars started practicing in the heat in late May and now they will put all that time and dedication to the test this weekend when they play in the Pony League National Cham pionships in Round Rock These girls made a commitment to make it to Nationals when we start ed this said NB Stars Manager Rickey Beach They knew the sacri fice they would have to make by prac ticing three to four times a week when most of their friends were playing or at Schlitterbahn The girls have never regretted their decision to be commit Those words were echoed by NB Stars second baseman Courtney Beach Weve given up a lot to get this she said And thats the main reason weve made it this The NB

that thinks they will win every game and just never gives The National tournament will be filled with some of the top talent around as teams from California Massachusettes and Illinois are expect ed But that kind of competition doesnt seem to make NB Star Nicki Herring miss a beat We are a real good Herring said I think we will win it all and take first Courtney Beach shares those same high hopes for this weekend If we put our minds to it we can beat she said We have a really really really good One reason the NB Stars have expe rienced so much success this year is their work ethic The fact that they practice harder than most teams play is something that helps them down the stretch of games We try to get our girls in the best condition Beach said All the drills we do in practice have some kind of conditioning in The NB Stars also have the luxury of moving girls to different positions without a lot transition period because all the girls are good allaround ath letes When we started this team was made up of all said Coach Leon Vargas But the girls have adjusted and now we feel good about moving the girls around when we need to And the best thing is that these girls are a great group of kids so there is never anyone getting The NB Stars gather for a discussion at a recent practice The Stars JS Thursday afternoon for the start of the Pony League National Championship
