OutdoorsMustangs nip Aggies I1
DALLAS (AP) — The smallest Mustang stopped Southern Methodist’s stampede off the Southwest Conference basketball summit with his finest game
Stubby Butch Moore, a 5-foot-9 junior guard built like a bulldog who looks like smokin’ Joe Frazier, scored a career-high 25 points Wednesday night to carry the Mustangs to a hard-earned 81-79 victory over Texas A4tM.
The victory gave SMU a one-game edge over AAM, Arkansas and Texas Tech in a still-tobe decided league
In other games, Tech nudged Rice 61-60 and Texas Christian bounced Baylor 81-70.
“Butch Moore is the best player they have,” said Aggie Coach Shelby Metcalf. “I’ve said that all along. He’s a great competitor.”
Moore hit his first nine shots and said, “I haven’t had a game like this since I played against Mt. Vernon in high school back at Newburgh, New York.
“I felt in the warmups like my shot was going to go. So I took it to ’em.”
SMU made 15 of 18 foul shots in the second half but went 8:29 without a field goal as the Mustangs almost blew a 19-point lead.
“The team came back from three tough losses (Arkansas, North Carolina State, Baylor),” said SMU Coach Dave Bliss. “The Aggies made a great comeback at the end but we just gutted it out. The first half of this game showed what this team can do.”
Bliss said his players had earned a day off with their victory.
“We’re going to take tomorrow off and work out very lightly on Friday to get ready for Louisville,” said Bliss.

New Braunfels Herald Zeitung Thursday, February 14,1985 9ATime ripe for record bass
Texas fisherman may be a bit overdue for bringing in a new state record black bass, but the next few weeks maydo the trick.
Phil Durocher, inland fisheries management coordinator for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, pointed out that most of the 12-pound-plus largemouths taken in Texas succumbed to lures during late January through March.
“The state record bass, a 15-pound, eight-ouncer, was caught on Feb. 7, 1981, and with very few exceptions almost all the fish on the top 20 list were caught in the late winter and early spring period,” Durocher said.
Biologists believe the large bass begin to move into shallow water and become more aggressive in preparation for the spawn, thus giving anglers the best opportunity to get a wall-hanging size bass.
Sor far in 1985 the big bass scene has been fairly quiet, with only one fish reportedly breaking into the top 20.
Andy Iosue of San Antonio landed a 13-3 on Jan. 19 at a private lake in Dimmit County, but that fish only tied for number 16 in the unofficial rankings.
During 1984, anglers caught six top-20 fish, and three of them were caught during January when the state was in the grips of record cold temperatures. Two others were caught in February and March, respectively, and the third had to be considered an oddity, caught during July at toke Calaveras near San Antonio.
Durocher said ifs anybody’s guess which lake will produce the next state record, but several devinitely have the potential, l^ake Monticello near Mount Pleasant has produced the most top-20 fish, with nine. Nearby toke Welsch has contributed only three on the list, but one of them (a 15-3 ^-pounder) caught in 1983 was the largest bass ever taken from a public reservoir. The state record bass was caught from a private lake in East Texas.

Filling the gaps will be New Braunfels’ main concern in the 1985 baseball season
Except for the pitchers, none of last year’s starting squad will be in the same position when the season opens Feb. 27.
Graduation took a heavy toll on the Unicorns in 1984, with the result being that Coach Peter Garza will have to shuffle around the returners he does have while looking for replacements in the other positions.
New Braunfels’ strength will be in the pitching department, which suits Garza just fine.
“If you could have one team strength, you’d want it in the pitching. You like to have experience at that position and I feel both of our kids can handle the job,” he said.
.Seniors Armando Martinez and Bobby Tristan will be back for the Unicorns, both coming off strong showings last season,
Garza said he will also look to junior Alan Walker and sophomores Ralph Gonzales and Ricky Gomez as possible pitchers.
"I feel very confident with our pitchers. We have two guys who have proven they can do the job and some promising prospects,” Garza said.
In the field, the Unicorns will be playing with last year’s shortstop playing second base, last year’s third baseman playing short, and last season’s right fielder playing in center.
In addition, Garza will have to fill two holes in the outfield and one each
NB tennis team downs Clemens
New Braunfels took a 6-2 decision from Samuel Clemens in a dual tennis match Wednesday in Schertz.
Earning victories for New Braunfels in singles were Cris Skov (6-3, 6-3), Robert Moors (6-1, 7-5), toigh Ann Farney (6-1, 6-0) and Mario Haas (6-1,6-0).
In doubles, the team of Stephanie toyh-Gayle Cerratto won 6-3,6-0, and Denise Denson-louise Settree won 6-1,6-3.
The Unicorns’ record is now 18-3. Their next match fill be today against Canyon
Spring of 85
at third base, first base and catcher.
“The catching spot is our most critical position,” Garza said. “Right now, the job is wide open with four kids fighting for the spot.”
Gunning for the catching position are juniors Erie Rivers and Dicky Ortega, sophomore Bobby Alvarez and freshman Ray Carrillo.
“Right now, no one has stepped out in front of the others. I hope someone will come through and take over by mid-March,” Garza said.
In the middle of the infield, Garza will use two familial names in new positions. Tristan will move from third base to shortstop and Tomas Juarez will make the transition from short to second.
“I’m confident both of them can make the switch. Having both of them play new positions will make it a little hard, but at least we’ll have the experience up the middle,” Garza said.
At the corner bases, Garza will again be looking for youth to fill the gaps
“First base is wiide open,” he said. “We are going to have to move some people around to fill that position.”
Garza said juniors Walker and Barry Baker are top contenders for tile job.
At third base, three players are vying for the spot: Walker and seniors torry Barnes and Russell Hansmann.
“We are open for a fight at third
NBMS downs Kirby; wins tournament
New Braunfels Middle School volleyball teams defeated Kirby Tuesday and won last weekends tournament at NBMS
In Tuesday’s game, NBMS’ seventh grade A team won 15-3, 15-9 while the B team won 15-8 NBMS’ eighth grade A team won 15-2, 15-5 while the B team defeated Kirby 15-9.
In the tournament, NBMS’ eighth grade team defeated Canyon 15-5,14-16, 15-3; Kitty Hawk 8-15, 15-4, 15-9; and San Marcos 15-3,15-11.
NBMS* seventh grade team m 8-15, 15-12, 15-1; 15-11; and San
also,” Garza said.
In the outfield, right fielder David Caddell will move to center to take advantage of his experience, Garza
Utility infielder Victor Sierra will be looked at in the outfield, because of his “quickness and ball sense,” Garza said.
Juniors Don Duncan and David Gunn will also be looked at for an outfielding job.
Garza said the Unicorns’ youth will not pose a problem for the team.
“Our youthness doesn’t bother me. The thing you need which these kids lack is experience,” he said. “Without the experience, I’ve found them to be hesitant and non-aggressive. That’s why our scrimmages and early games will be so important.”
Garza said he expects a close district race, with Canyon being the strongest club.
