New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 18, 2000, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2B — Herald-Zeitung — Thursday, May 18, 2000 Girls’ sports program gets funding boost BULVERDE — Wells Fargo Bank is donating $5,000 to the Community Education Department of the Comal Independent School District to buy new equipment for girls' sports programs. The grant will allow participation fees charged to students to be kept at affordable levels. “Wells Fargo wants this donation to honor Coach Jimmy Boehm,” said Ron Mercer, San Antonio regional manager of the Wells Fargo Commercial Banking Group. For years, Boehm, a teacher at Bulverde Elementary School, had noticed that girls who wanted to play sports had few opportunities for participation. In 1996, he started a volleyball and basketball league for fourth-, fifth- and sixth, -grade girls in the Comal School District. The program has grown, as has the need for equipment. The check from Wells Fargo will be presented at the Comal ISD school board meeting today. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at Bill Brown Elementary School west of US. on Texas 46.

Leiter (5-0) gave up five hits and matched his season-high with nine strikeouts, giving him 26 in his last three starts. He has won four straight starts, beginning with a 14-11 victory at Colorado on April 30. John Franco pitched the ninth for his second save. Colorado took a 2-0 lead in the third on Jeff Cirillo’s two-out RBI double and Jeffrey Score New York Mets 4 Colorado Rockies 2 Hammonds’ run-scoring single. The Mets got one back in the bottom half as Benny Agbayani led off with a single, went to third on Rey Ordonez’s hit-and-run single to right, and scored on Joe McEwing’s RBI single. A one-out walk to Derek Bell loaded the bases, but Rolando Arrojo escaped further trouble by striking out Edgardo Alfonzo and getting Mike Piazza to fly to right. Former Patriots’ official joins Houston NFL franchise team HOUSTON (AP) — Bobby Grier, former vice president of player personnel for the New England Patriots, will be associate director of pro scouting for Houston’s new NFL franchise. Grier was responsible for all aspects of the Patriots’ pro and college scouting departments until May I. He had been with the Patriots in personnel capacities for 18 years. “Any time you have an opportunity to add someone to your organization with the experience and reputation that Bobby has, you do it,” Houston general manager Charley Casserly said Tuesday. “His vast background in the NFL as a scout, personnel executive and coach will be extremely valuable to us.” SVHS/From 1B Valley’s playoff victories against Austin McCallum last week. Fuller struck out nine in Game I while Reininger struck out 11 in the second game. If the series goes into a third game, Gustafson said he believes his team would have the advantage because the Rangers have more depth in their pitching staff. Matt Machecek and Chris VanKleef make up the bullpen for Smithson Valley. VanKleef was the No. I reliever for SVHS this past year, but has not been called upon as much as this year because Fuller and Reininger have performed so well, Gustafson said. While Gustafson realistically views a more competitive series, the players are hoping for another sweep. “I don’t feel any different going into this series than I did against Austin McCallum,” Fuller said. “They have an ace that isn’t anything we haven’t seen before. “We don’t plan on going three games, we plan on doing it in two. But if it comes down to Game 3, we’ll take it.” Reininger said, “We’re coming out ready to play. This is the time we have to play our best ball. One mistake can cost you a 1-0 ball game. It’s too easy. “I have a great feeling we’re going to come out on top. The team is psyched up just as much as I am.” With both schools playing a similar style of baseball, the team who wins this series will have cracked the mirror. MMimm NEW TIRES!
