with the power shut off doesnt mean being shutdown The Rangers hit 10 singles Monday night their third straight game without an extrabase hit But they combined timely hitting and relief pitching to produce a 64 victory over the Detroit Tigers Its a plus that if youre not hitting home runs to still put six runs on the board because the object of the game is still to put runs on the board not home

Triathlon a Canyon Lake race that annually draws nearly ath letes from across the nation has been cancelled Organizers of the event which this year was selected as a National Championship said fund ing and the closing of its eightyear site in Comal Park led to the decision The THCT has gotten better each said Carl Owen race director Unfortunately weve been battling the fact that it has also been underfunded during much of its growth toward worldclass Owens added that triathlons of this size and stature are logistically difficult to work out and expensive to stage Solid corporate sponsor ship support is vital for its success and longevi ty Its difficult to pull the plug on such a great event especially in a year it had been selected as a National he added Real ity is reality The THCT has never had the lead sponsorship that weve always known was nec essary to its long term future Though we came close time was working against The final blow for this years event came when it was announced on June 14 that Comal Park staging site for the triathlon since its inception in 1986 would be closed for tho1995 season for construction Though not the prime reason Owens sqid it was a critical factor in the decision to cancel The Canyon Lake Corps of Engineers has been great in working withus over the years as this event has he said When they informed us of the closure they offered to work closely in every way possible to find an alter native site on the Lake for this years Moving the event to an alternative site would have bcfcn feasible had the necessary sponsor ship been secured Owens said That oneyear option would have been very difficult though for an event which covers 60milcs of country side and would have sacrificed the quality of the event he said The reputation of this event and what we have worked on for so long and hard to create even if it never takes place again in the future are more important than merely contfnuing for the sake of said Owens who orig inated the THCT in 1986 and has directed it ever since Many of the worlds top triathletcs have com peted in past years in the THCT including defending 1994 Ironman Champion Greg Welch from Australia and past Ironman winner and triathlon legends in their own right Dave Scott and Mark Allen of the United States Owens said the THCT could be back in 1996 if sponsorship is stronger A central sponsor would be necessary and the year off could give organizers a chance for more discussions in that direction Record nearly falls at New Braunfels track By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor Above more than 90
