worked that strategy for the third straight game this time racing back to top San Marcos 149 Tuesday night for the districts north zone title NB Head Coach Michael Garrott seemed confident even when his team fell behind 8 3 in the fourth inning Theyve found a way to win these last three games by never giving Garrott said They just have hearts that dont quit We couldnt have put together a better selec tion of allstars than these 12 kids They play as a team no matter whose out there on field They support each The NB allstars rallied in bottom of the fourth inning scoring nine runs to take a 12

Matt Schulke Zeb Vicknair Jimmy Rodriguez Jimmy Quiroz Chad Gregson Michael Garrott and Peter Lingamfelter led the NB AllStars offensive attack The NB AllStars won each of their last three game after

inning by loading the bases Quiroz then smacked a 2 RBI double that put the score at 86 It was all New Braunfels from that point They are good said San Marcos Coach Robert Pfeiffer They are skilled at every position and they should go Third time is a charm for NB 11yearolds From staff reports HeraldZeitung photos by THOMAS GODLEY New Braunfels American Little League player Chad Gregson sets up for a hit In the fourth inning of Tuesday nights north zone championship game against San Marcos The NB American 10yearold AllStars won 149 The NB American 11yearold boys also won the north zone top ping Seguln 60 Both teams advanced in the tournament and will be vying for the District 31 title this week SEGUIN Playing the same Seguin AllStar team in three games over a fiveday span the New Braunfels American Little League AllStars knew their opponent all too well And they knew exactly what it took to beat them this time around With stingy pitching and smart baserun ning the NB 11yearold boys team came away with 60 win Tuesday night to capture the District 31 north zone title and advance to next round of the tournament Head Coach Dwayne McCrary said the team was ready for the rematch after a let down the night before The kids just came out like a different team McCrary said We hit the ball and spread it around on offense There wasnt a player out here that didnt con tribute to the The two teams came into the District 31 north zone championship having split two games in the series NB won the first con test 98 and Seguin took Mondays game 4 0 On Tuesday night it was all New Braun fels Kenneth Power pitched a twohitter and centerfielder Jake lowers and left field er Adam Silva starred in the outfield Silva and lowers combined for seven putouts snagging several line drive hits from Seguin batters The NB AllStars had six hits and only two errors to Seguins two hits and 11 errors Justin Schaeffer was 2 for 3 at the plate with 2 RBI Jowers went 2 for 3 with an RBI Adam Gallegos and Greg Winters each went 1 for 3 The NB AllStars reached the champi onship by beating Canyon Lake 76 Lock hart 98 and Seguin 76 in seveninning game last Friday This group of kids is McCrary safd Theyve won the north zone for three years in a row now as 9 10 and now 11 If it moves speaks or spells then it falls into sports Thomas Godley Its getting harder these days convincing people that certain items dont belong on the sports page Everyone else has the upper hand in the wide world of sports where just about any recreational activ ity hobby and physical movement falls into the cat egory To be fair ninetyeight percent of the phone calls letters press releas es and photos that make it this way are clearcut legitimate sports news Its the other two percent that slip through editorial screening landing on sports that just dont seem quite right for this page Making that judgement can be tricky and people dont take too kindly to being told their form of exercise or pastime doesnt quite con stitute a sport Not long ago a story about a local chess team winning a middle school tournament was submitted to It came attached to an actionpacked photo of two kids pondering their next move I drew the line and immediately directed it to the news side of editorial noting that it could run in the Education section of the paper After all chess is generally considered a mathematical mind game The article and photo returned my way with the explanation that Sports Illustrated the her alded institution of sports magazines featured chess articles They were right The famed pub lication annually covered the world chess cham pionships The middle school kids werent exact ly in the realm of Bobby Fisher or Kasparov but I conceded thinking maybe it would some day legitimize a swimsuit issue in the Herald Zeitung More recently a fishing article was submitted for publication and I took it without question because I knew fishing was definitely a sport The article had a nice title using the word But after reading through it turned out to be not so much about fishing as it was about a guy sharing fishing stories to a group of school kids Not the kind of stuff a sports fan grabs the newspaper to read about I thought Again I sent it to the news side suggesting maybe a Lifestyles feature It came back and made it to the sports page Fishing is sporting even if a person is just telling anecdotes while casting a line Next on the list was whether cheerleading fell into the category of sports It seemed if we put cheerleading on the page then wed be obliged to give coverage to pep squads booster clubs and organized fans who root just as hard for the home team The point seemed sound until someone not ed that ESPN regularly aired the College Cheer leading Championships They were right The cheerleading story should make the local page Not only does ESPN cover cheerleading They cover lumberjack competition monster truck racing Australianrules football and equestrian riding competition It was wasnt until a few weeks ago though that I realized the grand scope of sports It was during lunch at place that had ESPN tuned in On the screen was a kid standing on a stage carefully uttering the letters in a rare word It was live coverage of the National Spelling Bee Thats when I knew I could never tell another soul there was no place for their article on Sports Page Thomas Godley is sports editor for the Her ald Zeitung NBA draft short on big talent DALLAS AP The Dallas Mavericks would love to find a big man in todays NBA draft even though they realize its unlikely The San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets would love to draft anyone who could contribute next year even though they also know its unlikely Thats pretty much the case throughout the NBA going into this years draft which is heavy on underclassmen and light on impact players Few of the soontobe rookies appear to have the apparent pizazz of last years co Rookies of the Year Grant Hill of Detroit and Jason Kidd who made a 23victory dif ference to the Mavericks Drafting Kidd with the secondoverall pick in last years draft capped a threeyear stretch in which Dallas built ils foundation Jim Jackson was first with the fourth pick in 1992 and Jamal Mashburn went fourth in 1993 This year the Mavericks are picking 12th giving little opportunity that theyll be able to choose an immediate starter They also have the 24th pick and hope to find another role player They used the 19th choice last year to take Tony Dumas who didnt earn many minutes The best chance Dallas has to find an impact player would be making a trade As bait player personnel manager Keith Grant is dangling six more firstround picks over the next three years and Roy Tarpley if any one would lake him and his huge contract Cowboys testify in Williams sex case McKJNNEY Texas AP A Collin County grand jury investigating sexual assault allegations against Dallas Cowboys offen sive tackle Erik Williams has heard from three of his teammates Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin appeared before the grand jury for about 15 minutes on Tuesday morning Cowboys players Charles Haley and Leon Lett testified June 20 Each was asked 20 questions about what they knew about Williams and his relation ship with a i7yearold girl who accused him and college friend Roderick Carson of Madison of sexually assaulting her two months ago in Williams north Dallas residence Some of the questions pertained to how often they had seen Williams with the girl whether they had ever seen them in a sexual situation and what the girl had told them about herself and her life Williams attorney Donald Godwin said he has heard that the grand jury had reached a decision and will make an announcement this morning AllStar arm Herald
