Fresh off a first-place victory at the Beach to Bay Relay in Corpus Christi, the 35-year-old runner is the strong favorite to win the local 5K event. He figures to break the 14:40 mark, which should be the fastest time unless another world-class runner makes a last-minute arrival. "I've heard (Erie) Polonsky may be there, but I'd be surprised if he does make it," said Reina, a nationally-ranked marathon runner and member of the New Braunfels Running Club. "It will be a competitive field either way. This is my fourth time and it's always a great race." The Three Parks Run, sponsored by the New Braunfels Running Club and Schlitterbahn Water Park, begins at 8 a.m. at the intersection of Liberty and Common streets. More than 300 runners are expected to lace up their sneakers and cover the 3.1 -mile course along Hinman Island Drive and the nearby neighborhoods of Edgewater, Klingcman and Dallas streets. Also scheduled Saturday is a 5K competitive walk, Kids IK and Wheelchair Kids I/2K. Following the race, runners can bid for items in an open auction and enjoy free refreshments. The post-race schedule also includes an awards ceremony and music with emcee Paul McLaughlin. Proceeds from the race, which is dedicated in memory of former NBRC member Mary Ann’ Phillips, will go to Hospice New Braunfels and for funding cancer research. Phillips was an avid runner and inspiration to local runners until her death from breast cancer in October of 1993. "This is the final chapter in honoring her," said daughter-in-law Susan Phillips, president of the NBRC. "She was a popular fixture at all the local races. We want to continue remembering her courage in the fight against cancer." The Three Parks Run annually draws big running names such as Randy Reina, brother Ruben Reina, Roger Soler and Paul Perrone. Reina said the Schlitterbahn 5K will be a tune up and upcoming 8K in San Diego on June IO. If he fares well there, he plans to enter the Peachtree I OK in Atlanta, GA, where many of the top marathon runners in the world will converge. His long-range goal for 1995 is to run in the Chicago Marathon in October. Though considered predominantly a I OK runner, Reina is a veteran of the New York Marathon and the Houston Marathon, both in which he has clocked times under 2 hours 16 minutes. His personal best in the 26-mile course is 2 hours 14 minutes. "Marathons are more of a hit and miss," said Reina who will mn Saturday for sponsor Dan D. Phillips, Inc. "With a 5K or a I OK, I know exactly what I can do." Jose Iniguez, a close friend of Reina and a world-class runner in his own right, will be on hand at the Three Parks Run, though he is readying for Sunday's Gardina Invitational in California. 'TU be in New Braunfels Saturday but only to watch," said Iniguez, an NBRC member and recent qualifier for the U.S. Olympic Trials. "I am looking forward to seeing many top runners." Other long-distance athletes are expected to give Reina a mn for his money. Robert Yara and Juan Bernal are two main threats. The women's field will be headed by Natalie Nepela, last year’s winner, and Carmen Troncoso of Austin. Phillips credited many local volunteers for contributing to the race. Sherrie Brammall, public relations director for Schlitterbahn and Rick Faber, marketing director, were instrumental in procuring donations for the auction. Employees and volunteers of Hospice New Braunfels generously contributed time and effort to the event. Randy Reina, of San Antonio, is the strong favorite to defend his title at the 1995 Schlitterbahn Three Parks 5K. He finished in a time of 15:04 last year. More than 300 runners are expected to compete in Saturday's race which begins at Common and Liberty streets in New Braunfels. Herald-Zeitung file photo Three Parks 5K Run £ ] I?

The Rockets prevailed 100-95. HOUSTON (AP) — lite I-10 series between Houston and San Antonio is over, and the Spurs are road kill. Perhaps no team has had a more precarious or improbable route to the NBA Finals than the Rockets. They were defending champions. But after a sixth-place finish in the Western Conference, nobody gave the Rockets much of a chance for a repeat title. Now, after coming back from the brink of elimination against Utah and Phoenix, Houston has disposed of San Antonio, the team with the league’s best record, and is headed back to the Finals. "Once again, we proved all the doubters wrong,” Houston’s Sam Cassell said. ‘This ball club is a playoff team. When the playoffs come, we know what to do." The Rockets finished off the Spurs I00-95 Thursday night, putting to rest Game glance SAN ANTONIO (95) Elliott 6-15 5-6 18. Rodman 7-9 CM) 14. Robinson 6-17 7-12 19. Del Negro 3-9 4-5 10.

It took six tries, but finally the home team won a game, and Houston won the best-of-7 series 4-2. "I’m probably the proudest man in the world,” Houston coach Rudy Tom- janovich said. “I don’t want to take anything away from last year. It was special. I don’t want to tarnish that, but right now this was better.” As usual, Hakeem Olajuwon was magnificent. He had 39 points, 17 rebounds and five blocked shots. In six games against the league’s MVP, David Robinson, Olajuwon averaged 35.3 points and 12.5 rebounds. The showdown between these two Texas towers was no contest. Olajuwon’s play made his fifth-place finish in this year’s MVP voting seem ridiculous. "I’ve never seen anyone on this planet play like this guy," Houston's Clyde Drexler said. “He is phenomenal, night in and night out. He does it so easily people come to expect it. That’s the ultimate." Drexler, the Rocket without a championship ring, had a rough start Thursday night, but he made big plays down the stretch and finished with 16 points and IO rebounds.Astros draft teen sensation pitcher HOUSTON (AP) — Tony McKmght’s no stranger to the Houston Astros brass. “I’ve known Tony for a long time," said Astros’ scout Chuck Edmondson. "! know what kind of ability he has and I know about his background. He’s the type we’d like to have. He’s definitely got big league potential:" So it came as no surpnse when the Askos selected right-handed pitcher from Arkansas High Sch(x)l in Texarkana, Ark., in Thursday’s opening round of the 1995 amateur draft. McKnighl, 18, was the 22nd selection overall. In 14 games this season, McKnighl went 9-2 with a 0.79 ERA and 130 strikeouts in 74 innings. The 6-5, 220-pounder has been selected a prep All-American twice. McKnighl earned Most Valuable Player of the 1994 Stale High School Championships. Arkansas High was the 1994 state champion and finished second in the 1995 tournament. McKnight’s fastball has been clocked at 95 mph, and Astros scouting director Dan O’Brien said he “lends to pilch comfortably" in tile range of 89-92 mph. “He has a gixxJ arm and good stuff, and the young man throws strikes,” O’Brien said. “He has the potential to develop an excellent curveball." Top team Submitted photo The Atlanta Bravettes finished second overall in the New Braunfels Girls' Softball Association (7 and 8-year-old division) with a record of 12-4. The team was the preseason tournament champion. The Bravettes players are: (from bottom, left) Cassie Craft, Rebecca Garcia, Lecia Bradshaw, Ashley Davila (All-Star), Casandra Aguirre.

The team was sponsored by Sunbelt Cement.Rangers select Seminole hurler By DENNE H. FREEMAN AP Sports Writer DALLAS (AP) — Florida State pitcher Jonathan Johnson isn’t expecting to wait long before reaching the major leagues. The Texas Rangers selected the junior right-hander as its first-round pick and the seventh overall in the amateur draft Thursday. Johnson didn’t say how much of a bonus he will see from the Rangers in contract negotiations. But he appears to be a young man in a hurry. "When they put this kind of money into a player, they don’t expect to waste my time and their time in the minors,” he said. "Going to a team that wants to better itself and get me there quick, I couldn’t have painted a prettier picture,” he said. In his junior year, the Ocala, Fla., preacher’s son is 11 -3 with a 2.95 ERA going into today’s opening round of the College World Series in Omaha, neb. In three seasons at Florida State, Johnson was 33-5 with a 2.61 ERA and 386 strikeouts in 354 1-3 innings. He pitched 16 scoreless innings in the ACC tournament and beat Clemson which also reached the CWS. Although his fastball has fair velocity and good movement, Rangers pitching coach Dick Bosnian says Johnson’s money pitch is said to be his curveball. rn ;
