New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 8, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas SPORTS IN BRIEF From The Associated Press A&M-CORPUS CHRISTI FIRES PERRY CLARK CORPUS CHRISTI —Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has fired Perry Clark after the former Tiilane and Miami coach went 10-21 in his fourth season with the Islanders. Athletic director Tim Fitzpatrick said Monday that success in men’s basketball is “critically important” to the athletic program at A&M-Corpus Christi. ( lark was 54-71 with the Islanders after spending three years as a television analyst before he was hired. He replaced Ronnie Arrow, who started the program in 1999 and led the Islanders to the NCAA tournament in 2007 before leaving. BOSTON MARATHON START TO COME IN 3 WAVES BOSTON — The Boston Marathon is adding another wave. The race, which expects 27,000 entrants for its 115th edition April 18, will send the runners off in three separate starts. The groups will leave the starting line in Hopkinton about 20 minutes apart, which officials hope will lead to a more orderly race. The Boston Marathon start was essentially the same for more than a century. In 2004, the women were given their own start, and in 06 the men’s field was broken up into two waves for the first time. SELF PICKED AS AP BIG 12 COACH OF THE YEAR LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas’ Bill Self, whose remarkable run of seven consecutive Big 12 championships has astounded his rivals and probably spoiled his fans, is the Associated Press Big 12 coach of the year. Self easily outpolled everyone else in voting by writers and broadcasters who regularly cover the Big 12. It’s the third time in his eight seasons at Kansas that the affable Oklahoma native has won the honor. The Jayhawks lost two NBA lottery picks off last year’s team as well as playmaking guard Sherron Collins. They also had injuries, suspensions and the tragic death of one player’s mother. But they still finished 29-2 overall and 14-2 in the league, losing only to Texas and Kansas State. EX-NEB STARS FRAZIER, SHIELDS ON HOF BALLOT LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Former Nebraska stars Tommie Frazier and Will Shields are among 79 players on the Football Bowl Subdivision ballot for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame. Frazier quarterbacked the Cornhuskers to perfect seasons and national championships in 1994-95. He was the 1995 Heisman Trophy runner-up and the Big Eight offensive player of the year. Shields was a consensus first-team All-America guard and 1992 Outland Trophy winner. Shields helped lead the Huskers to three NCAA rushing titles before starting his long career with the Kansas City Chiefs. JUDGE ALLOWS PLAYERS' STEROIDS TESTIMONY SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge is allowing the testimony of former baseball players and their drug-dealing relationship with Barry Bonds’ former personal trainer during the slugger’s perjury trial. Bonds’ trial begins later this month on charges that he lied to a grand jury in 2003 when he said he never knowingly took performance-enhancing drugs. Other baseball players are expected to testify that personal trainer Greg Anderson provided them with performance-enhancing drugs and detailed instructions on how to use them.

NFL, union talk 4 hours; plan to resume today WASHINGTON (AP) —Trying to work their way to a new labor deal, Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL Players Association head DeMaurice Smith resumed negotiations for four hours Monday. With both sides adhering to mediator George Cohen’s admonition that they not discuss the talks publicly, it wasn’t clear how much — if any — progress was made in the shorter-than-usual session. The only sure thing: The sides planned to meet again today. The current collective bargaining agreement originally was set to expire last week, but two extensions have now pushed the cutoff to the end WRESTLING CONTINUED FROM Page 6 wrestling club is that it provides New Braunfels and Canyon with a feeder program for ftiture generations, lames Yonker won state titles of I riday. After months of infrequent formal negotiations and plenty of acrimony, the sides have spent 12 days at the Federal Mediation Conciliation Service, but they still remain apart on key economic issues. What will happen the rest of this week is still anyone’s guess. If a deal isn’t reached, the sides could agree to yet another extension and negotiate beyond Friday. Or talks could break off, leading to, possibly, a lockout by owners or antitrust lawsuits by players. The NFL has not lost games to a work stoppage in nearly a quarter-century, and by agreeing to continue with mediation, the league and union the past two seasons as a rookie and novice grappler, and will be a freshman, along with cousin Michael Yonker, at New Braunfels in the fall, while Corey Fraunhofer will join the Canyon Cougars next season.

The past two Super Bowls rank No. 1 and No. 2 among most-watched TV programs in U.S. history. The old CBA was agreed to in 2006, and owners exercised an opt-out clause in 2008, leading to the current stalemate.

The key issues have been: • How to divide revenues, including what cut team owners should get up front to help cover costs such as stadium construction and improvement. Under the old deal, owners received about $1 billion off the top. T hey entered these negotiations seeking to add another $1 billion to it. • A rookie wage scale, and where money saved by teams under that system would go. • Benefits for retired players. • The owners’ push to expand the regular season from 16 games to 18. community," Rick Hodges said. “If anyone saw the kind of turnout we had at Canyon High School when the Unicorns and Cougars competed against each other for the first time in a varsity meet, they would see that wrestling is here to stay.” Tliesday, March 8, 2011 — Herald-Zeitung — Page 7 LADY RANGERS FINISH THIRD IN PECAN VALLEY Dallas 79° / 44‘ New Braunfels Five-Day Forecast TODAY WEDNESDAY THURSDAY FRIDAY SATURDAY Chance of Warm, some A warm, sunny day Dry and mostly Increasing clouds, scattered showers sunshine sunny slightly cooler 82° 747° 75° 741° 77° 7 45° 79°753° 73°755° CLICK Almanac Temperature Yesterday’s High / Low    78° / 39° Normal High / Low    71°/46° Record High    97°    in    1991 Record Low    21°    in    1989 Precipitation Yesterday’s    0.00" Month to Date    0.02“ Avg.
