New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 18, 2001, New Braunfels, Texas Page 2B — Herald-Zeitung — Tuesday, September 18, 2001Sports Too Contact Sports Editor Bryan Adams at 625-9144 ext. 223.Sports Shorts-►Jordan returns for 90 minutes NEW YORK (AP) — He’s back! He’s back! Oops, well, he’s almost back. For 90 minutes Monday, Michael Jordan was listed as an active player for the Washington Wizards on the team’s Web site. Apparently, someone pressed a button a little too soon. “Just a clerical error,” NBA spokesman Tim Frank said. “Our Internet department was making preparations in case he comes back.” Jordan had all but confirmed he would announce a comeback at a news conference as early as this week. Because of the terrorist attacks, he is now more likely to announce his decision in a more low-key manner, such as a faxed news release, in the next two weeks. Jordan was listed as a 6-foot-6 guard, 198 pounds. The uniform, of course, was No. 23. The Web site also included a brief biography, complete with his career statistics down to such trivial information as the fact that he wore his blue North Carolina shorts underneath his Bulls shorts when he played for Chicago. Jordan’s name was taken off the active roster late in the afternoon by the NBA, which controls the rosters on the Web site. This would be the second comeback for the 38-year-old Jordan, who led the Bulls to six NBA championships. He retired in October 1993 to play minor league baseball and returned to the Bulls in March 1995. He retired again in January 1999.►IOC examines safety measures LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — The International Olympic Committee’s ruling executive board opens a three-day meeting Tuesday — a regularly scheduled session that is taking on greater importance since the terror attacks in New York and Washington. Instead of routine business, the meeting will focus on keeping the Salt Lake games safe from terrorists. IOC and Salt Lake officials have stressed the games will go ahead as scheduled, but said all aspects of security must now be reexamined. Security has been the IOC’s top priority since a terrorist attack at the 1972 Munich Games claimed the lives of ll Israeli athletes and coaches. In addition, one person was killed and more than IOO injured when a pipe bomb exploded in Centennial Park during the 1996 Atlanta Games. Since the recent attack, federal lawmakers swiftly bolstered the $200 million Salt Lake security plan. A $40 billion package approved Thursday by the Senate includes another $12.7 million for the Olympics.►Pacers waive Redrills INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Sam Perkins just didn’t fit into the Indiana Pacers’ plans any more. He was too old to be part of their youth movement and too expensive to keep around. On Monday, the Pacers waived Perkins, the oldest player in the NBA last season. He began his career with the Dallas Mavericks. Perkins, who turned 40 in June, decided to retire before last season. But the veteran forward-center reconsidered retirement and returned to the Pacers for a 17th season last fall when he agreed to a three-year deal. The Pacers cited financial reasons and playing time for younger players as the primary reasons to release Perkins. Teams with payrolls above a certain level, estimated at $54 minion, will have to pay a dollar-per-dollar tax to the NBA. This is the first year for the luxury tax, and the payroll limit will be announced following the season. The other issue was playing time. With free agent Carlos Rogers, young veterans such as Jeff Foster, Bruno Sundov and Jermaine O’Neal and rookie Primoz Brezec, Walsh figured Perkins would take away precious minutes from the younger players. Perkins was a first-round draft choice of Dallas in 1984, No. 4 overall, just two years after he played on North Carolina’s national championship team with Michael Jordan.Game lime►On Radio Pro Baseball Houston Astros at San Francisco Giants on 1420 AM KGNB.

Ready for competition K.JESSIE SLATEN/Herald-Zeitung Canyon head coach Heather Sanders looks on with Cougarettes Krystle Weinder, a junior outside hitter, and Grace Geralds, a junior setter, during a tournament held in San Marcos.DISTRICT/From 1B this year. We just have to be ready to stay after it from beginning to end.” Canyon finished 28-12 this past season before losing to New Braunfels in the Region IV Quarterfinals. The Cougarettes were third in District 27-4A with a 6-4 record, despite a 0-2 start. “I think right now everyone in the district is doing really well. Its going to be a hard fight in district again,” Sanders said. “Boerne is doing as well as everybody thought they would do. I haven’t seen Tivy play, but I’ve heard they’re a really good all-around team.” “They play great defense, and they always play well against us, so I know we’re going to have to play well,” Smithson Valley head coach Margaret Mitcham said. “We’re playing at Cougar Den and it’s always tough to win in that gym.” The Rangers waited 21 games before they played their first home game this season. Smithson Valley won all three of its home games this past week and will now play its first to district games on the road. “We’ve played well at home, but we’ve also played well on the road,” Mitcham said. “I think the kids are playing really well right now. Katy Douglass, Katie Kern and Lindsey Schaal have all three stepped up as leaders. Right now the team is having fun and we’re experimenting with some new stuff that seems to be working. The kids are really excited about district starting and our chances to make the playoffs.” Mitcham was one of many coaches in the district that picked Boerne as the favorite to win the district this season. After an 18-4 start, Mitcham said she saw no reason to change her pick at this point. “I haven’t seen Boerne except for on tape. They haven’t lost very many matches,” said Mitcham, who has led her team to a 15-9 start. ‘I picked them to finish first before the season and I guess they’re still the team to beat. We’ll find out on Tuesday against Canyon, who I think will be second.” Smithson Valley finished the 2000 season 22-15 and was second in the district at 8-2. Smithson Valley was the only team in the district this past season to beat the defending state champs, New Braunfels. “New Braunfels is going to be a team that surprises some people, I just hope it’s not against us,” Mitcham said. ‘They’re going to be tough to beat. Your match against New Braunfels will help you or break you.” The Unicorns won their first nine district games in 2000 on their way to their first ever state championship in volleyball.

In conjunction with the move, the track is reducing the price of concessions to compensate fans. “While we regret that we have to step up our security measures to this extent, it is, at this time, completely necessary,” said Denis McGlynn, Dover Downs’ president and CEO. “We don’t know how long the changes will have to be in place. But given the events of the past seven days, we think it is of the highest importance that this race takes place in a completely safe manner.” The first sporting event in the nations capital since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon will be Tuesday night’s NHL exhibition game between the Capitals and Philadelphia Flyers.Scoreboard »MU Major League Baaeball National League All Times CDT East Division W L Pct GB Atlanta 78 64 .549 — Philadelphia 75 68 .525 3 1/2 New York 71 73 .493 8 Florida 66 77 .461 12 1/2 Montreal 61 82 .427 17 1/2 Central Division W L Pct GB Houston 84 59 .587 — St. Louis 79 64 .552 5 Chicago 78 65 .545 6 Milwaukee 63 81 .438 21 1/2 Cincinnati 58 86 .403 26 1/2 Pittsburgh 55 88 .385 29 West Division W L Pct GB Arizona 81 62 .566 — San Francisco 80 64 .556 1 1/2 Los Angeles 78 65 .545 3 San Diego 70 73 .489 11 Colorado 62 80 .437 18 1/2 Sunday’s Games Florida at Atlanta, ppd.

Every district match was a battle last year and we know it’s going to be the same this year. We’re pretty young, and we graduated all of our starters from last year, but I know our kids are going to do well and compete.” New Braunfels has beaten some tough teams already this season including Westwood, San Antonio Reagan and Leander. After beating Houston Clearbrooke and San Antonio Taft at the Northside Tournament, New Braunfels lost to Smithson Valley 15-5, 15-10. “I think the kids are getting used to playing with each a little better and they’re starting to gel a little bit,” Fowler said. “Now is a good time to come together. Early on we were rough around the edges, but I think they’ve grown and they’re playing well.” With the team that won the district this past season (New Braunfels) and the team picked to win the district this season (Boerne), tonight’s match should be an exciting one. “We haven’t been able to see them (Greyhounds) play this year, but we know they’re very tough,” Fowler said. “They have a couple of very good players. They play very good defense and they have two very good hitters.” American League All Times CDT East Division W L Pct GB New York 86 57 .601 — Boston 72 69 .511 13 Toronto 70 73 .489 16 Baltimore 55 87 .387 30 1/2 Tampa Bay 50 93 .350 36 Central Division W L Pct GB Cleveland 82 62 .569 — Minnesota 76 68 .528 6 Chicago 74 70 .514 8 Detroit 57 86 .399 24 1/2 Kansas City 57 86 .399 24 1/2 West Division W L Pct GB x-Seattle 104 40 .722 — Oakland 87 57 .604 17 Anaheim 73 71 .507 31 Texas 66 78 .458 38 x-clinched playoff spot Sunday’s Games Cleveland at Toronto, ppd.
