coaching Gustafson is going to be new baseball SVHS athletic director Larry Hill said Wednesday Coach Teuton has asked to do other things within athletic Hill said he was excited about bringing Gustafson aboard He spent the last three years at Clark High School where his teams made the playoffs each of those three years Coach Gustafson has fine reputation and has won lots of Hill said Were pleased to have someone of his caliber and Hill said Teutons new duties have yet to be determined Weve got a big picture type of thing right he said We have to make sure all puzzle pieces are in place before we start filling the Gustafson said being able to concentrate on baseball in the fall was a big perk of the Smithson Valley job I am really he said It was one of those great opportunities for a baseball coach who is looking to free up the fall with football and work with the team yearround Those jobs are hard to find 1 think there are only three other schools in South Texas which have baseball coaches free in the Turning the Rangers into playoff contenders may take patience but Gustafson said he was ready for the task Im looking forward to he said Its a dif ficult challenge for myself Ive things about Comal ISO and Smithson Valley High School I think it fits me Gustafson began his career at Marion High School and coached in Uvalde for two years before moving on to Clark He has an overall record of 183841 in 11 seasons and was 4825 in three years at Clark Gustafson said he planned to spend the next few months getting adjusted to the team Right now I really dont know much about the kids but Ive heard good and positive he said Reaching the playoffs is the main goal for Gustafson but there was no timetable set When I took over the Marion job they had won six games in eight he said We went to the playoffs in my second year and then went five years straight after that I expect to get in the playoffs soon I will tell the kids that I cant promise how many games they will win but they will be better young men and know lot more about Using the force A i t i HeraldZeitung photo by Michael Darnall Ashley Bird 12 of the Heat is forced out at second base by Ashley

Houston has 112 record when backs are against wall HOUSTON AP The Houston Rockets are facing elimination once again and that might not be so bad for them Were backed into a corner again and maybe this is the best situation for coach Rudy Tomjanovich said Wednesday We seem to play better in this kind of deal Weve got to come out fighting for our The Rockets will play host to the Jazz tonight in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals Houston trails 32 and will be elim inated with another loss But the Rockets have an 112 record in elimination games under Tomjanovich and they expect to ward off an early vacation You trap a rat in the corner and he comes out Rockets guard Mario Elie said Its going to be guns slinging and come out fighting This team has a lot of character and pride Weve been through this situation before and we know what its like If we respond tomorrow well get a chance at Game The Rockets came away from Tuesday nights 9691 loss feeling just a few plays could have won it for them The Jazz felt the same about Game 4 when Eddie Johnsons buzzer shot won for the Rockets Im encouraged after Game 5 because thats the best weve played in the series and now we get to play at Charles Barkley said They MB A Playoffs Wednesdays Game Chicago 100 Miami 87 Chicago wins series 41 Tonights Game TV NBC Utah at Houston 8 Utah leads series 32 have the luxury of worrying about Game 7 and we dont have that luxu Tomjanovich expects another clutch performance To me this is what we talked about the first day of preseason at Tomjanovich said I assume thats how were going to respond Well be concentrating and well be focused on The Rockets were forced to depend heavily on Hakeem Olajuwon to stay competitive with the Jazz in Game 5 since their outside shooting was off They hit only 7for24 percent from 3point range The Rockets know they need more balance to beat the Jazz but Tomjanovich wouldnt fault his exten sive use of Olajuwon Young arms help Rice gain first CWS berth HOUSTON AP Rice baseball coach Wayne Graham made a deci sion three years ago that helped the Owls reach the College World Series for the first time this year The Owls will play defending champion Louisiana State on Friday in a firstround game because three freshmen pitchers Jeff Nichols Mario Ramos and Marc Gwyn picked up the slack when No 1 pitch er Stephen Bess was lost in February with a forearm injury We recruited all three because we made a decision three years ago to recruit pitchers who could throw Rice coach Wayne Graham said About midseason it became evident that they were going to be able to carry the things we knew they could Nichols 101 ERA and Ramos 93 ERA have carried the brunt of the starting load but the Owls also have benefited from Matt Anderson 101 who also has nine saves Anderson a top pro prospect has struck out 97 this season Nichols is a good example of what Graham has tried to accomplish with his pitching staff He makes a lot of use out of a moving fastball and he knows how to change Graham said of Nichols Plus he has only 28 walks in 102 Rice has also given its young arms plenty of run support Leading the way is junior Lance Berkman a Canyon High School graduate Berkman leads the NCAA with 41 home runs The Owls carry a 4714 record into the World Series There is no question that this is my best team Graham said The key to this team was that we had freshmen pitchers come through We wanted a high rating at the beginning of the year but we were real con cerned that we were going to try to make it with freshmen pitching But those guys have come through arid now Stephen is back just in the nick of Smile for the camera Gerry Olert left tapes an upcoming episode of The Texas Angler featuring Troy Aucoin Keith Warren The Texas Angler Wednesday
