The New Braunfels High School swimming team received its first taste of competition over the weekend, as the Unicorns were one of 36 schools participating in the San Antonio 'invitational Swimming Championships.

Coach Nancy Sheridan said the San Antonio meet, which featured more than 400 swimmers, was a Stern ojiciiing test for her athletes.
“This was a difficult first meet for the kids, but it gave them a taste of some of the best competition in the state,” she said.
Although the swim team was only officially formed in November, the group plans on competing in its first district meet ig two weeks.
“Because our district (25-SA) docs not have a swimming program, we had to petition to be allowed to participate in some other arca district. AII the paper* work took time, which bm caused us,to miss a great deal of the swimming season/* Sheridan said. “However, we arc swimming now in District 27 and are developing the nucleus of a good team. We expect to be strong competitors in the upcoming district meet on Feb. 16.”
Swimmers at Canyon High School arc also working to establish a team and hope to represent the school in UIL district competition pcxt year. ,
Four swimmers from Canyon competed in the San Antonio meet, with the relay team of Joel Brenton, Mathew Flume, Steve Hannah and Jared Rosson finishing tSth.
Day lights it up for Razorbacks
Arkansas blows out UAB, begins to set sights on top-ranked UNLV
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Alabama-Birmingham Coach Gene Bartow says the Feb. IO matchup between No. 2 Arkansas and No. I Nevada-Las Vegas will be interesting.
Banow’s Blazers lost 104-72 to Arkansas (21-1) Wednesday night. On Dec. I, in a game played at Vancouver, British Columbia, UAB lost 109-68 to UNLV.
“They are two phenomenal teams,’’ Bartow said after Wednesday’s loss. “What makes Arkansas tough is they keep coming at you, at you.’*
Bartow said he thinks the 1-2 rankings of UNLV and Arkansas are accurate, but “Arkansas will have the advantage at home.’’
UAB (13-8) stayed close to Arkansas throughout the first half, which ended with the Razorbacks up by just four points, 46-42. The opening period saw the score tied 11 times, and
the lead change hands IO times.
But in the fast five minutes of the second half,Todd Day hit 10ofhis33 points to spark a 21-2 surge that gave Arkansas firm control.
Razorback Cooch Nolan Richardson said Day’s efforts, following his five-point game Saturday at Baylor, showed what a good player he is.
“Todd Day’s performance just goes to show you never know about a player,’’ Richardson said. “Everyone has bad days and Todd had one at Baylor. But he showed what a good player he is.’*
Day also led Arkansas in rebounds with a career-high ll, and went 8-for-8 at the free-throw line.
Roosevelt Wallace added 17 for Arkansas and Miller had 14. Andy Kennedy led UAB with 20, Elbert Rogers had 13 and Stanley Jackson and Jack Kramer added 12 each.
Dexter Cambridge came off the
bench to score a career-high 26 points as Texas won its sixth straight conference game, defeating Southern Methodist 96-80.
Cambridge sparked the Longhorns in the first half, scoring 15 points. During one three-minute stretch, the 6-7 junior from the Bahamas scored 13 straight points as Texas (13-5,7-1) jumped to a 35-23 advantage with 4:18 left before intermission.
The Longhorns convened 4-of-8 3-point attempts in the first half, but only 2-of-10 in the second. Cambridge was 11-of-18 from the floor, including two 3-pointers.
Before Wednesday, the Mustangs (9-10, 4-4) had won six of their last seven games.
Tim Mason led the Mustangs with 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting from the field. Mike Wilson followed with 17 and Chad Allen 13.
Kelvin Crawford scored 17 points
as Texas Christian used a balanced attack to beat Texas Tech 72-66.
The victory was Coach Moe lba\s 199th career win. *
TCU (13-5, 5-3) held an 18-point lead, 54-36, early in the second haft but had to regroup as the Red Raided rallied to pull to within two points on Bryant Moore’s 3-pointer with 3:12 left in the game.
Texas Tech (6-15,2-6) equalled the Homed Frogs from the field, shooting 52 percent.
Dana Hardy and Marvin Moore scored 23 and 18 points respectively to lead Rice to a come-from-behind 102-96 victory over Baylor.
The 102 points were the mosi scored by Rice (8-10,3-5) this season.

The game seesawed back and for thin a first half which featured three ties and nine lead changes.
Klingler decision to be announced today
HOUSTON (AP) — University of Houston Coach John Jenkins hopes the NFL draft doesn’t strike twice in the same spot.
Heisman Trophy winner Andre Ware skipped his senior season with the Cougars last year in favor of the NFL and his replacement, quarterback David Klingler, planned to announce today if he’ll make the same decision.
The Houston Post quoted sources Wednesday as saying Klingler, who set or tied 33 NCAA records last season, would remain for his senior year with the Cougars.
Klingler refused to confirm the report.
* ’The decision is made, I was just trying to find a time convenient for me to hold a news conference.” Klingler said. “It’s amazing how many
things have been said that supposedly I said or somebody else said. So tomorrow, we’re going to set the record straight.’’
Ware passed up his senior season with the Cougars and became the first-round draft pick of the Detroit Lions. He signed a four-year contract worth a reported $52 million.SportsworldUIL looks into expanding playoffs
AUSTIN (AP) — A University Interscholastic League panel is gathering information about three plans that would change the state high school playoff structure for the 1992-93 and 1993-94 school ycar.>, according to a report.
The three concepts apply to all team sports and arc aimed at compensating for different enrollments among schools in all classes, the Austin Amtricun-S tales man said Wednesday.

Tile UIL’s legislative council Tuesday also asked for input on a proposal dial would allow four playoff teams from each district. The measure would set up divisions widiin each eight-team district. lf division winners did not meet in die state playoffs, IO state football champions and 40 other team w inners would be crowned each school year.
UIL Director Bailey Marshall said staff members will solicit comments on the proposals at several February meetings around the state.
The 24-mcmbcr legislative council will meet March K in Austin for public hearings and vote March IO on policy affecting UIL realignment for the 1992-93 and 1993-94 school years.
