Bdle, Tuch chosen for World Scholar-Athlete Games
By DOUGLAS PILS Hereltf-Zehung
Open any daily newspaper or Aide on any news channel and news of teenagers in trouble is certain to be (bund. In these days where not much good is heard about those will lead this nation into the 21st century, The Institute for International Sport is looking to change that with The 1993 World Schol-ar-Athlete Games.
Sarah Bolle, 16, and Traci Tuch, 16, sophomores on the 1992 New Braunfels Unicom volleyball team, will be part of this Anytime event, which win be held June 20 through July I in Newport, RI.
The Games will bring together 2,000 teenagers from 16-to-19 from 126 countries and all SO states. In addition to athletes involved in volleyball, basketball, soccer, tennis doubles and sailing, there will be participants talented in art, creative writing and singing.
Bolle and Tuch will be placed on teams with members from different countries and states in order to provide a cultural, educational and athletic experience.
To qualify for the Games, the girls had to submit applications and essays explaining why they wanted to attend the event. They
were then judged by virtue of their athletic statistics, their academic standing in their class, their GPAs and letters of recommendation.
Bolle, who also plays basketball, tennis and is active in a couple of school activities, said the opportunity to interact with the people of different cultures was the focus of her essay.
“It’s like international, so itTs a great opportunity to play volleyball with people worldwide and to also meet a lot of different people," Bolle said. "Ifs pretty exciting, because there’s like a lot of important people like (New Jersey Senator) Bill Bradley and (Patricia Dowdell) the (volleyball) coach from Iowa, who used to be the Olympic team (from 1973-80). Everyday there’s like a theme day, like there is a drug-abuse and environment days.”
Other theme days include world peace, ethics and fair play, and international commerce. The theme days are educational programs designed to act as a forum for all the participants to discuss the issues that are affecting everyone’s lives.
Neither girl said they see themselves as anything out of the ordinary, although both speak of one

UT stockpiles quarterbacks as Baylor pulls in elite haul
A hoc lated Presa
The Texas Longhorns continued to stockpile quarterbacks by signing top California prospect John Dutton and Baylor snatched Dallas Bishop Lynch lineman David Davis from die Miami Hurricane to highlight today’s national schoolboy football signing day.
The Longhorns, moving to ease the departure of senior Peter Gardere, started the day fay signing top Texas quarterback prospect James Brown of Beaumont West Brook and then added Dutton, among the top rated quarterbacks in California.
Baylor, as expected, raked in an elite haul that included Davis, a 6-6,296 lineman, who committed first to Texas AAM and then to Miami, but today he signed with the Bears.
Killeen running bade Dion Marion, who gained 1,007 yards and scored 13 touchdowns in seven games last season, also signed with the Bears. He’s rated among the top running back candidates in the state but still must pass his qualifying exams.
Brown, 6-1, 180, highlighted the Longhorn signees that also
included lineman Byron Lloyd of Spring; kicker Philip Dawson of Lake Highlands, defensive back Quinton Wallace of Fort Bend Terry and defensive back Chris Carter of Tyler.
Aggies ask for retoetotement/Pege IO
Baylor coach Chuck Reedy, starting his tenure with a bang, had Alief Elsik running back Kabef Muhammad among a list that also included DeSoto defensive back Mike Benjamin, Houston Lamar linebacker Robert Mason and Lake Highlands’ defensive back Corey McLane.
Brown hopes to fit quickly into the Longhorn quarterbacking picture.
“I feel I have a good chance to play soon,” Brown said prior to signing his scholarship. “None of the quarterbacks will have too much experience. I’m going to challenge.”
The Texas Aggies had four fax machines working early to take in signed scholarships and one and one of the first to report was Alief Elsik defensive back Donovan Greer. Greer, the object of nationwide recruiting efforts, commit
ted to the Aggies last week.
Other early morning signees included tight end-linebacker Brad Crowley of Corpus Christi Calallen, noseguard Marcus Heard of San Antonio Clark, lineman Chris Ruhman of Aldine Nimitx and running back Larry Walker of Rusk.
Baylor and Texas expected to gather in large portions of the state’s top athletes on the first day under NCAA rules that athletes can sign athletic agreements.
. The Rice Owls also were expected to gather in another good recruiting class after posting their first winning season since 1963 and the Texas Aggies expected select quality if not quantity.
College coaches are not allowed any contact with their prospects until Friday during an NCAA-mandated dead period. Therefore, athletes must send faxed copies of their scholarship agreements to their schools.
The Aggies have had to battle controversy throughout the recruiting season because of an in-house probe into four athletes who accepted money for work they did not perform on summer jobs.

Tuesday night’s Unicom soccer game was just about as competitive as the Super Bowl.

Junior midfielder Ryder McDonald, increased the lead by nailing the net from a center-line break up the middle midway into the baff Albert GallegM, Topy Ramiros, and Danny Rios all had an outstanding game, moving around tho field so often even their parents had trouble following them.
Bustee andMcDonald teamed up again just before halftime. Bustee glided the ball to McDonald, who slammed in th# third

Round two belonged to the seniors. After a slow start, the Unicorns resurfaced. Junior Bobby Gersa blasted the Buffalo goalie with a hard shot from the right of the net, but Clemens revised the ball. Not to worry. Sanches was standing by to ditto the shot, and this time it found a home.
Just under a minute later, McDonald began to creep up the sideline from about 30 yards out to loft a pass for a second Sandies scorcher.

Although things have not been going their way to date, a look bock to last year's comeback still reminds the competition that they had better not discount Head Coach Danny Bueno and the Cougars just yet.
“We had a good first half,” Bueno reflected in a soft voice, hut they had the second.” Canyon played to a 0-0 halftime score, with a firm defensive stand.

Forget the Texas vs Baylor argument over who won the Southwest Conference recruiting battle. The real question of who did the best in the Lone Star State could be between Arkansas and Tennessee.
In fact, several Southeast Conference schools joined usual invaders Michigan, Miami and Notre Dame ii) signing a bushel of the state’s Top IOO recruits.
Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer’s first recruiting class is expected to include wide receivers Courtney Epps of Dallas Carter and John Pol* lard of Jersey Village, quar? terback Mike Groin of Aldine Nimitz, defensive lineman Brandon Ashley of Carter and defensive bade Tomell Hurd of Dallas Kimball.
Ashley and Hurd were first team choices on The Associated Press Class 5A all-state team. Pollard and Epps received honorable mention.
The Razorbacks didn’t have much time to assemble under new coach Danny Ford, but they were able to lure seven Texans, including first-team-ers Frank Middleton, a defensive lineman from Beaumpnt West Brook, and Odessa Permian linebacker Sam Brooks,
The jewel of their class, however, could be Dexter Hebert, who played at a private school, Beaumont Kelly. Hebert led the state in regu-lar-season rushing yards with more than 2,000, and had more than 400 in a game against 4A Bridge City.
The rest of their class is; expected to include Houston: Northbrook wide receiver, James Perry, Richardson wide receiver-running back-Duane Lawson, South Gar; land running back Leon Clark and running back William Price of League City.
Vanderbilt signed four Texans, including South Garland teammates Chad Wood, a center, and defensive back Matt Anderson. Jay Stall-worth, a defensive end from Marshall, and Erie Vance a defensive back from Hurst Bell, also will be Commodores.
Other SEC expected signees include Denison defensive lineman Tyrell Buckner and Aiding MacArthur running back Dameian Vallery to Alabama, Kilgore defensive back Bran-' don Craven to Georgia, Richardson defensive lineman David Carmona to Louisiana State and DeSoto wide receiver Gerald Daniels to Mississippi State.
Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Colorado led the Big Eight’s march into the state.
Those schools signed a total of 14 players, including Dallas Kimball linebacker Allen Wilbon, the AP 5A defensive player of the year, to the Buffaloes.
Kevin Ellison, a defensive lineman from Houston Westbury, also is going to Colorado.
The Sooners signed defensive backs Antony Fogle of Houston Westbury and Roderick Manuel of Fort Worth Weetem Hills, defensive linemen Donnie Embra of Alief Elsik, Mike Phipps of Humble and Barron Tanner of Athens, linebacker Zerick Rollins of Houston Kashmere and offensive lineman Derrick Nelson of Kashmere.
