JESSIE SLATEN/Herald-Zeitung New Braunfels senior Tracey Garvins makes a diving dig during Tuesday night’s game against Pflugerville. NB won 15-5,14-16, 15-13. the end of a long rally, Paige fired a spike from the left side of the court to the deep right corner of NB’s side of the net. Mozeley dove for the ball and barely got her hand under it. With little reaction time, Jackie Lucas barely saved the ball from hitting the floor again. While Pflugerville was already celebrating the point, Johnson punched the ball over the net and it landed for a sideout. “I saw the ball was still up and when it came at me I just decided to tip it over the net,” Johnson said. “I actually saw that they were already celebrating so I knew that side would be open.” With Johnson at the line, Pflugerville made one hitting error and Lucas dumped a ball over for a point to make it 13-12. The Panthers called a timeout. “I just wanted to be out there,” Johnson said. “I wanted to show everybody that I can play at the varsity level.” The two teams returned to the floor and NB tied the game at 13-13 on a kill by Lucas, went ahead 14-13 on an unforced error by Pflugerville and won the match on an ace by Johnson. Wendell led the team with 15 kills and 3.5 blocks in the match. Amanda Jergins recorded a team-high 21 assists and Tracey Garvins served up four aces. Jenna Hartmann and Garvins each had eight digs. The Unicorns improved their record to 4-3 this season and will co-host the Fraulein Volleyfest Friday and Saturday.

COWBOYS/From 7A amid Carter’s disastrous starting debut. “I think Quincy got better as the game went on,” Campo said. “I just felt he was getting more aware of some things as the game went on. I don’t think that game bothered him a lick.” If it did, it didn’t show on Monday. During scrimmage-type drills, TCU/From 7A Carter even flashed some of the scrambling skills that has Jones drawing comparisons of him to Philadelphia’s Donovan McNabb and Minnesota’s Daunte Culpepper. Carter, the Cowboys’ first draft pick and the 53rd overall in the NFL draft, reminded everyone that he’s just going through the typical rookie struggles. The season hasn’t even started yet,” Carter said. “People are making too many judgments. At first people wanted to know why I wasn’t starting, now they don’t want me to start. I just need to keep focused on the job.” Even veteran receiver Joey Galloway, who didn’t make a single catch in his first preseason game of the year, said he’s confident the Cowboys can win with Carter at quarterback. “I’ve been conditioned to go with whoever is under center and just play,” said Galloway, who worked on some pass routes with Carter after practice. “I don’t think Quincy’s going to have any problems. He’s done a great job.” And he’ll have to do so with a new offensive fine. Only Victor Payne, a 6-foot, 305-pound guard, remains from the five linemen known as the “Big Uglies” that blocked up front the past two years. Patterson has talked to Printers about what is expected. “I told Casey that this is not about putting more pressure on him. Pressure is when you Jiave got to take a test and its only you doing it,” Patterson said. “Its not just pressure on Casey, it’s pressure on everybody.” Initially, Tomlinson will be replaced by a committee of tailbacks. With 178 yards, senior Andrew Hayes-Stoker is the top returning rusher, but he’s had two surgeries since last fall for torn cartilage in his knee. Sophomore Ricky Madison (20 carries for 89 yards) got only a taste of college ball while sophomore Corey Connally doesn’t yet have a carry at TCU. “We’re going to play the best player, but you’ll probably see all three of them,” Patterson said. “Both Ricky and Corey are faster and stronger than L.T. was as a sophomore.” TCU wants senior big-play threat LaTarence Dunbar more involved in the offense. Schultz said 10-15 touches a game would be ideal, and Dunbar could be used in different spots to reach that goal. Dunbar was the nation’s leading kickoff returner last year, averaging 33.7 yards per return with two touchdowns. The speedster also caught 17 passes for 251 yards and four TDs. The Frogs also have plenty of holes to fill on the defense that was the nation’s best a year ago, allowing just 245 total yards and 9.6 points a game. Six starters, five of them All-WAC selections, are gone. “We lost a lot of players, but we have players replacing them that are probably more talented and more athletic,” said senior linebacker Chad Bayer, the leading tackler last year with 107. “When they mature and get their playing experience, I think we’ll be right back where we were, and probably better.” TCU plays 12 games this year, starting Aug. 25 at fourth-ranked Nebraska — the team the Horned Frogs were also originally scheduled to start against in 2000 until Franchione, right after taking over a 1-10 team, canceled the game.
