down to the last shot put in the last event in a track meet the Rice Owls had never won But Kodili Odimgbe produced a clutch performance Friday the likes of which had never been seen in the 22year history of the Southwest Conference indoor track and field championships The Nigerianborn Odimgbe needed a throw over 55feet 8inches to win the event and give Rice 108 points to 107 for the Baylor Bears His last throw was one inch to the good sending send Owl fans into a joyous display of emotion Friday night on the floor of Will Rogers Coliseum The toss of 559 beat his previous indoor mark of 5210 by almost three feet Baylor fans couldnt believe what hap pened They had gone into the event with a threepoint lead Two of a more NBs Shanna Webster and Canyons Lindsay McNeill excel beyond basketball By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor Shanna Webster approaches her studies the same way she takes to the basketball court All out The New Braunfels senior led her team with an scoring average during the 199495 season Equal ly impressive is her grade point average in the classroom She is a member of the National Honor Society Fellowship of Christian Ath letes and Young Life On the court its easy to see why Webster excels in and outside the classroom It centers around the word Chasing down an opponents fastbreak div ing for a loose ball scrap ping for inside position and Shanna Webster getting rebounds are all part of her game Its a down and dirty approach to getting things done and theres rarely a second thought about scraping an elbow or landing in an awk ward position if it means a chance to win Next year she will be attending either Texas University or Baylor University depend ing on her visits to each campus in the the com ing months Both schools have already sent acceptance letters and her plans to pursue a medical career seem only a matter of delving into the work Science is my Shanna the daugh ter of Dan and Paula Webster I dont mind seeing blood and other things people might be squeamish about Going to med school is what Ive always wanted to Websters basketball career at NBHS came to an end two weeks ago She was a threeyear var sity letterman and received All District honorable mention as a sophomore She topped that this year by being named to the CoachesAllDistrict First Team The selection was an honor but personally she had two more memorable highlights The first was the Unicorns win over the Canyon Cougarettes and the other was the first place finish at the Flo resville Tournament in December when Webster earned tournament MVP The Unicorns compiled an overall 1413 record in 199495 the first winning season in several years and were ranked in the San Anto nio area Top 10 early in the season Webster expects to carry over the success to the NBHS varsity track team which will use her skills in the 800meter relay Athletics have played an major role in her life but Webster also realizes the importance of academics Ive had a great time playing for the Unicorns but when I move on to college I plan to focus on By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor Few sports remain that Lindsay McNeill hasnt tried at Canyon High School The 60 senior stays busy training through out the year She is a foursport athlete who thrives on competition But she does has few limits she said I probably wouldnt enjoy that too Her central require ment is that the game have plenty of action McNeill has lettered in track volleyball soft ball and of course bas ketball the latter in which she recently took First Team honors McNeills scoring Lindsay McNeill average was a major reason the Cougarette basketball team finished the season at 199 and earned a trip to the playoffs McNeill the daughter of Charles and Bev erly McNeill has seen success in each of the sports she plays but Softball and basketball are her true calling Colleges such as Texas Lutheran College Texas in Kingsville and Abilene Chris tian already taken notice and McNeill foresees many options upon graduation The versatili ty of a multisport athlete serves as a bonus for recruiters They also will be investing in a scholar ath lete McNeill maintains an A average and is a member of the National Honor Society All this from a person who on school days generally arrives home after six How does she find time You learn how to get studying done by taking advantage of free time in and between she said I try to get to bed before 11 so I have to make the most the most of my time at In college she plans to study in the Arts Communications The field could lead to a career in film drama broadcasting or journal ism Outside of school McNeill is actively involved in her church Specifically she spends time with the church drama group As vice president of the Fellowship of Christian Ath letes she also serves as role model for youth and makes group visits to middle schools Using her athletic abilities in more ways than one has its advantages The skills she takes in volleyball carry over into basketball which carries over into track and so on They also carry over into are a good way to learn about succeeding in the real she said You understand winning and losing and the importance of preparation I know it has helped New Braunfels overcomes Canyon 284A SEASON STATISTICS HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Canyons Vlnce Bueno 11 goes high for a header during second half action of New Braunfels 52 win over the Cougars From staff reports In a repeat performance of last years comback in the playoffs the New Braun fels Unicorns erased a 20 deficit en route to a 52 victory Friday over the Canyon Cougars at Cougar Stadium The Unicorns improved their record to 70 in district Tyler Fumey coming back from an earlyseason injury put the Cougars ahead 20 with only 20 minutes gone in the game What appeared to be a Cougar rout came to an abupt end when Ruben Gonzales nailed a bouncing ball to make the score 21 with less than 10 minutes left in the half At the 37minute mark Stephen Rodriguez tied the score and ignited the Unicom offense The second half began with the Unicorns picking up where they left off With less than 10 minutes in the the half Rodriguez

title dreams By TOM FOREMAN Jr AP Sports Writer CHARLOTTE AP Together they came close to a title at the University of Hous ton Apart Hakeem Olajuwon got the crown Clyde Drexler has long been seeking They were finally reunited Thursday night as members of the defending NBA champion Houston Rockets bringing to life a dream that Drexler thought was doomed Last year at the AllStar game we said it probably wouldnt Drexler said after the Rockets marked his official arrival with a 10589 victory over the Charlotte Hornets Wed been there many limes and wed always have dinner with our families and wed just always visit We gave up on it last year And then it happens Wouldnt you know it Drexler was traded along with Tracy Murray from the Portland Trail Blazers to the Rockets Tuesday for Otis Thorpe and a conditional draft pick But a delay in the completion of Thorpes physical examination kept Drexler on the bench for the first 24 minutes against the Hornets When he came out of the locker room he returned to a smattering of applause and a one point deficit Drexler sat down for good midway through the fourth quarter having sparked the Rockets to a 41 point third quarter and a com manding lead It was the first game on a path Drexler hopes will lead to the title he never got either as a teammate of Olajuwons with the Cougars or as a member of the Trail Blazers Im Drexler said Drexler doesnt blame anyone for Portlands loss to Chicago three years ago in the NBA Finals nor does he spread blame for other play off losses It was just a matter of the Bulls and the other teams being a little better than the Trail Blazers When you look at that team we had no dominant he said We had a very good unit The chemistry was good The teams that beat us had been together a little longer Ive learned how to lose Now I want to learn how to win the big Championships have dominated their con versations for years now Some of those talks focused on the one chance that slipped away the 1983 NCAA title game against North Car olina State With victory within their grasp the Cougars slowed their familiar fast pace and eventually let the Wolfpack get back into the game Lorenzo Charles dunk at the buzzer gave State the victory while robbing Drexler and Olajuwon of the expected championship We talk about missed opportunities or things that happened during the game that maybe we could have done Drexler said How bad we wanted coach Guy Lewis to get a nation al championship We wanted it as much for him as we wanted it for ourselves It was very There were different emotions when the Rockets arrived at the Charlotte Coliseum with out clearance for Drexler to play He could only watch the morning shootaround He couldnt practice because the deal was not yet Olajuwon said
