tonight They are a muchimproved said Fowler in her first year at NBHS Were not expecting to go in there and have it easy This is the playoffs and Kerrville will be The Unicorns wrapped up the District 284A title with a dramatic threegame comefrombehind win over Smithson Val ley They then beat Austin High in a warm up match on Saturday Fowler said two players middle hitters Jill Evans and Shelley Bredewater who were getting over illness last week are healthy and ready tq face the Antlers Coming off an impressive win over Smithson Valley last Saturday Canyon 244 hopes to keep the momentum going against the 274A champion Buffaloes Middle hitters Veronica Sanchez and Carisse Conques bring frontcourt power a lineup that plays a 62 offensive scheme and has strong net attack said Canyon coach Donna Boehle They are a ballcontrol team with good said Boehle who is making her 14th straight playoff appearance at Canyon We expect them to be feisty on defense and dig a lot of our shots The key will be for us to just play our game pass well and just go after Canyon reached the regional finals in 1993 and lost in bidistrict in 1994 Thomas Godley HeraldZeituna photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Canyons

Canyon its a mad scramble The latest turn in the District 284A playoff race left everyone waiting for a contender to step and challenge for second place New Braunfels and 1 Smithson Valley two teams on the skids emerged from Fridays battles with new life The Canyon Cougars resting firmly in first place flexed their muscle again with a 216 win over Hays and can clinch a playoff spot against Lockhart this Friday The Cougars owners of a sevengame win streak are focused and on course to cross the finish line com fortably ahead of the pack After that there are five teams with shots at the postseason heading into the final two weeks The scramble for the runnerup spot was further muddled by the Rangers upset over Bastrop 167 on Friday Maybe upset isnt the right word since really there arent any solid favorites in this district But Bastrop entered Ranger Stadium with a 20 district record and was probably looking past the 02 Rangers toward a showdown with Canyon on Nov 10 Coach Larry Hill had the right game plan ballcontrol offense and a heavy dose of running back Tim Ivey to keep the Bears offense in check and spoil their unbeaten district quest Down the road New Braunfels hob bled into the third week of the district schedule but showed it still has some fight left The Unicorns came away with 176 an upstart Lockhart Lions team that had knocked off the Rangers just a week earlier It sounds strange but if everything falls into place the Unicorns could squeeze into the playoffs with a 46 record That would happen only if they win the next two games the Cougars go undefeated and Smithson Valley beats Hays As expected in a sixteam district the playoff possibilities wont be nar rowed until the final week Imagine the confusion next year when the UIL allows three teams from each district into the playoffs Thomas Godley is spans editor for the Herald Zeitung Drugrelated suspensions confront Cowboys By DENNE H FREEMAN AP Sports Writer IRVING Texas Barry Swi tzer
