New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 24, 2000, New Braunfels, Texas 2B —Mkhald-Zeitijng —Thursday, February 24, 2000 GARVENS/From 1B (Jutveils already has an idea of where she’ll be playing when she arrives next fall. She also has plans on where she hopes to end up. CT 11 be playing a position on the outside in my first year. Hopefully, PII eventually make first team All-Big 12 Conference,” she said. As she prepares to graduate from high school and move on to Austin, Garvens does have her favorite memories playing for the Unicorns. “As a sophomore, Coach Fowler put me in the regional final against Judson. We then won and advanced to the state tournament,” she said. Defeating Houston Klein this past season also is a memorable moment for Garvens. “It was a big deal,” she said. “They were a big rival this year because they’re a big Houston school that beat us earlier in the season.” Another person who can attest to the skills of Garvens is her coach, Phyllis Fowler, who is also thrilled to see one of her star players move on. “This definitely gives New Braunfels High School well deserved recognition,” Fowler said. “It’s exciting you feel like you had a hand in it. Anytime you feel like you’ve had a part in a player’s life, it’s exciting.” “Whitney was a middle hitter for us. A lot of times, you have to be passing well,” Fowler said. “She has great blocking ability and is a good hitter. UT could see that. “I think she’s going to fit in great with the UT scheme and Jim Moore’s philosophy. “She s going to fit in and be successful,” Fowler said. Texas sluggers rally from behind to defeat SWT Kansas State breaks losing streak against Texas A&M Texas 4, SYV Texas 3 AUSTIN (AP) — With one run in each of the last four innings, Texas rallied from a two-run deficit to defeat Southwest Texas 4-3 Wednesday. Southwest Texas scored one run each in the fourth and sixth for a 2-0 edge before the Longhorns got on the board. Longhorns second baseman Chris Houser walked advanced to third with two sacrifice hits, and scored on a w ild pitch for the Longhorns’ first run in the sixth. The Bobcats responded with a one-run homer by shortstop Bryan Anderson, his second of the season, to extend their lead to 3-1. In the last three innings, Texas took advantage of the Bobcats’ mistakes to win. A throwing error during an attempted double play put a Longhorn runner in scoring position leading to an RBI single by outfielder Bend Emond to whittle the lead to 3-2. Texas scored a run in the eighth and won the game in the ninth after Bobcats closer Erie Johnson pegged right fielder Matt Rosenberg and threw two consecutive wild pitches. Jeff Ontiveros grounded out to second to drive Rosenberg home for the win. Johnson (0-1) got the loss for the Bobcats after allowing the winning run in the ninth, while Charlie Thames (2-0) recorded the win for the Longhorns after allowing two hits and no runs in 2 I -3 innings of relief.

Mohr hit 8-of-16 shots including 5-for-7, 3-pointers for Colorado (16-10, 6-7 Big 12). Jaquay Walls had 13 points and eight assists as the Buffaloes won their third-straight game and beat Baylor (12-12, 3-10) for the fourth consecutive time. Tevis Stukes, 5-for-12 on 3-pointers, led Baylor with 23 points. Baylor was 16-for-36 from beyond the 3-point arc, season and conference highs for the season. It was Mohr who came out hot, hitting 5 of 6 shots and both 3-point attempts to start the game as Colorado bolted to a 23-11 lead. Baylor, which was 8-for-20 on 3-pointers in the first half used successive treys by Stukes and Charlie Naihe, to get within 23-17. But Kyle Williams came off the bench to hit back-to-back 3-pointers to push Colorado’s lead back to 33-20. Mohr, who finished with 18 points in the first half, came back for the final 2:42 of the half and hit four free throws to offset a 3-pomter by Stukes at the buzzer as Colorado took a 54-38 lead into halftime. Walls buried a 3-pointer to put Colorado ahead 67-49 four minutes into the second half, but Baylor used the long-range bombs to answer with a 17-3 run to get within 70-66 with 12:48 left in the game. Will Smith came off the bench to hit two layups and Walls followed with a 3-pointer to give Colorado an 80-66 cushion. No. 20 Oklahoma 93, Texas Tech 65 NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Eduardo Najera scored 19 points as No. 20 Oklahoma beat Texas Tech 93-65 on Wednesday night to give coach Kelvin Sampson his 300th career victory. The Sooners (21-5, 9-4 Big 12) had shot below 40 percent in three of their previous four games, but made 56 percent against Tech. Najera, who had scored eight and IO points on 6-of-26 shooting in the past two games, was 8-of-12 from the field. The Red Raiders (11-13, 2-11) were coming off their first conference road victory of the season, but never threatened after the opening minutes and lost their fifth straight to Oklahoma. Freshman Hollis Price scored a career-high 20 for Oklahoma. Nolan Johnson continued his solid play of late, with 14 points and IO rebounds. All his points came in the first half when the Sooners took a 20-point lead. Mario Layne scored 25 and James Ware had 13 for Tech, which shot 38 percent. Tech led twice in the early going, the final time 8-6 after a Rayford Young 3-pointer. Oklahoma went on a 13-2 run in the next six minutes, when Tech made only one of six shots and committed five turnovers. Another Sooners run, this one 13-1 during a four-minute stretch, widened the lead to 34-16. Oklahoma held the Red Raiders without a field goal in the final three minutes and went to the half with a 20-point lead. By HARRY ATKINS AP Sports Writer DETROIT (AP) — A little patience paid big dividends for the Dallas Stars. After Detroit controlled play for the first two periods, Scott Thornton and Aaron Cavey scored 45 seconds apart early in the third as the Stars stormed back for a 5-2 victory Wednesday night. “Patience is something we take pride in,” said Mike Modano, who had a goal and an assist during the period. “We write our keys down before the game, and we stick to them. More often than not, it helps us win.” This was the seventh time the Stars have won when trailing after two. “It’s been a real positive thing to know we can come from behind in the third, especially against a team like Detroit,” Modano said. Brett Hull and Mike Keane also scored for Dallas. Vyacheslav Kozlov and Brendan Shanahan scored for Detroit. “We’re kind of like two personalities,” Shanahan said. “We had a good start, good middle, and bad finish. This is the second time in three games we’ve come out and had a disastrous third period.” Thornton’s fourth goal, on the rebound of Kirk Muller’s shot, tied it at 2 just 1:11 into the third period. Forty-five seconds later, Cavey skated in unchecked on the left side, took a pass from Modano and snapped it just inside the post, past goalie Chris Osgood for a 3-2 lead. Modano s 27th goal made it 4-2 with 6:17 left, and Keane iced it 40 seconds later with his eighth. “I think this is huge,” Stars coach Ken Hitchcock said. “This builds a lot of confidence in this team.” This was the third meeting between Dallas and Detroit. They split the first two, each winning on the other team’s ice. Shanahan’s 33rd goal, a blast from the right circle that handcuffed goalie Ed Belfour, gave Detroit a 2-1 lead at 9:44 of the second period. “Detroit had stymied us,” Hitchcock said. Stars recall Wright, send down Murray DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas Stars recalled left wing Jamie Wright from their top farm team Wednesday and sent down right wing Chris Murray. Wright, who had three goals in the his last three games with the Michigan K-Wings of the International Hockey League, has appeared in 17 games w ith the Stars this season. Murray played seven games in Michigan earlier this season. He had two goals and one assist in 32 games with Dallas. “Once they got the 2-1 lead we weren’t getting a sniff. Then we got that goal early in the third and it seemed to change everything.” Kozlov scored his 16th goal at 1:15 on the first shot of the game, taking a pass in the left circle from Steve Duchesne and slapping the puck between Belfour’s pads. Muller got the puck away from Detroit defense-man Chris Chelios near the Red Wings’ blue line to set up Hull’s 18th goal. Muller pushed it ahead to Thornton who fed it to Hull skating in alone. Hull drew Osgood down with a fake, then flipped the puck under the cross bar to tie it I-all with 7:00 left in the first. Each team had other good chances. Kozlov, on a clean shot, hit the post midway through the first period during a 4-on-4 situation. Osgood made a good stick save to rob Modano during a Dallas power play late in the period. Osgood had to be quick for a stick save on Hull who glided in unchecked with 9:30 left in the second. “This was playoff hockey,” Detroit forward Darren McCarty said. “The refs called a couple penalties early, then pretty much just let us play.” Yanks prepare for life without Strawberry By The Associated Press While the San Diego Padres fptmd their leadoff hitter, the New York Yankees will have to start looking for a designated hitter. The Padres acquired outfielder Al Martin from the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday for John Vander Wal and two minor leaguers. “This makes us a better club,” (HKYSILK Vlijmoutfi podgeDoes, Your Vehicle Idle Rough, Stall With years of normal driving and the quality of many fuel suppliers, your fuel system can develop oarbon build-up, deposits, and restrictions.

The Yankees were taking batting practice when Strawberry was told to go to the clubhouse, where general manager Brian Cashman relayed the message from the commissioner’s off ice. “We were trying to do it with as little fanfare as possible,” manager Joe Torre said. Elsewhere, Frank Thomas reported to White Sox camp, Ray Lankford was a no-show for the Cardinals and Jeff Kent was sidelined for San Francisco. Martin replaces Quilvio Veras atop the Padres’ lineup, even though his .337 on-base percentage was low for a leadoff' hitter. “I like Al Martin, but the thing is, is he a leadoff' hitter?” Padres star Tony Gwynn asked. “Al Martin is a guy who can help us, but I’m not sure he helps us in the leadoff' spot.” Martin hit .277 with 97 runs scored, a career-high 24 homers and 20 steals last year. “I try to set the tone by being aggressive and getting on base,” he said. “Runs are what wins games, not on-base percentage.” The Pirates received Triple-A reliever Jim Sak, who may compete for their closer’s job, and right-hander Geraldo Padua, a borderline prospect. The trade clears the way for Chad Hermansen, who hit 60 homers in Triple-A the last two seasons, to play every day in the majors. He will play alongside Brian Giles in either right or center field, with Wil Cordero replacing Martin in left. “We need to see what Chad is or what he’s going to be. We know he has great tools and he had two great years in Triple-A,” manager Gene Lamont said. The Yankees had been counting on Strawberry to be their top designated hitter this season with the retirement of Chili Davis. “I hope it’s not the end for him because I don’t know what that would mean,” Torre said. Strawberry, who has already been suspended twice for drugs, is expected to learn his fate from commissioner Bud Selig on Thursday. Asked if a one-year suspension was likely, a high-ranking baseball official, speaking on the condition he not be identified, said: “That’s a good guess.” The eight-time All-Star, who turns 38 next month, tested positive for cocaine Jan. 19, a violation of probation stemming from a no-contest plea to charges of cocaine possession and soliciting a prostitute in Tampa last spring. “I’m going to stand by him. I’m going to try to see that he rights his life. If its in baseball, fine, lf it’s outside baseball, fine,” owner George Steinbrenner said. “It isn’t like George has given him enough chances, now dump him. Dump him ... I don't think so.” Thomas arrived in Tucson, Adz., after missing Chicago’s first workout to be with his ailing father. “I thought I would lose him over weekend,” Thomas said. “He’s doing a little better. But you have bad kidneys and heart at the same time, it’s a tough situation.” Thomas, the AL MVP in 1993 and 1994, is hoping to reverse his struggles at the plate the last two seasons by working again with former hitting coach Walt Hriniak. “I worked with him for years. You saw the best of me with Walt,” Thomas said. “We’re bringing him just as a consultant.” Lankford was the only player to miss St. Louis’ first full workout in Jupiter, Fla. “We’re concerned — we haven’t heard from him yet,” manager Tony La Russa said. Lankford has until March I to report. La Russa said he heard Lankford was in Jupiter. In Scottsdale, Ari/., Kent was sidelined by a strained rib cage muscle as the rest of the San Francisco Giants had their first full-squad workout.Woods, Campbell go head to head at Match Play Championship CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) — They dressed in the same colors, wore the same swoosh, even looked strikingly similar from a distance. Tiger Woods and Michael Campbell shared one other thing in common — they were the two hottest players in the world. And then they played the first hole. Woods didn’t need long to remind Campbell, and perhaps the rest of the field in the Match Play C hampionship, that he’s still the player to beat. In what figured to be a tough match, Woods made short work of Campbell for a 5 and 4 victory Wednesday at chilly La Costa Resort. “Michael has obviously been playing well of late,” Woods said. “I just hope everybody didn’t forget I’ve been playing good for the same stretch.” La Costa was socked by rain late in the first round that left two matches suspended until Thursday. Still, the other 30 matches proved once again that rankings mean very little over 18 holes of the most unpredictable format in golf. Vijay Singh, Nick Price and Phil Mickelson, all ranked in the top IO, will have to settle for a $25,000 check and the rest of the week off atter being eliminated. It wasn’t as bad as last year, when five of the top seven seeds were eliminated the first day, but there were a fair share of surprises. None was greater than Mickelson, the No. 9 seed who only two weeks ago ended Woods’ PGA Tour winning streak at six. Mickelson faced a 12-foot eagle putt on the 20th hole to beat Billy Mayfair, his good friend and neighbor in Phoenix, until a shocking reversal in a matter of seconds. Mayfair, who had to make a 6-footer on No. 18 to send the match into overtime, holed his hunker shot from about 30 feet for eagle, and Mickelson’s putt to tie grazed the lip. “I was happy to win, but I feel bad for Phil,” Mayfair said. “We knew one of us had to lose. We went to the extreme out there. It felt more like Sunday afternoon than Wednesday.” Duff y Waldorf knocked off Singh, the No. 6 seed, on the 17th hole and Mark Calcavecchia overcame shaky putting early on to stop Price 2. f I ;
