Pustejovsky new basketball coach
3y JOE BELK Sports Editor
The New Braunfels ISD Board of Trustees approved the reassignment if Marla Pustejovsky to varsity girls basketball coach at its Tuesday night meeting.
The board also approved the hiring af Bruce McConaghy, the former head baseball coach at Boerne who will be the JV coach and varsity assistant in baseball as well as the defensive secondary coach for the varsity football team.
In addition, Neal Miller was officially promoted by the school board to head baseball coach, replacing longtime Unicom coach Peter Garza — now an assistant principal at New Braunfels Middle School.
Pustejovsky spent one year at New Braunfels as an assistant girls basketball coach and assistant track coach.
“She is such a fine person,” New Braunfels Athletic Director Lew Sim-inonds said. “She will do a good job in basketball, and she will also be good for the kids and the parents. She’s a real credit to our school system, and we’re real excited about it.”
He said Pustejovsky’s season as a basketball assistant was another asset, providing stability to the program.
“She was just the obvious choice, (because she would) give stability and be a good coach and so good with the kids,” Simmonds said.
Linda Isbell Hart, the basketball coach for the past two seasons, was reassigned to assistant volleyball and

McConaghy, who had been the head baseball coach at Boerne, moves to New Braunfels as Miller’s assistant. He also will coach the defensive backs, a role he also had at Boerne.
Simmonds said he was also excited about tile addition of McConaghy to the staff.
“He’s wanted to come to New Braunfels for several years,” he said. “When this opened up, he was the first one I called, and things just fell into place perfectly.”
He said that it was a great asset to find an assistant coach as capable and experienced as McConaghy.
“He’s really a knowledgeable young man,” Simmonds said. “He’s always been good with the kids — we saw that when he was at Boerne. It’s just a great situation for him and for us.”3 men and an iguanaDennis Speicher, Wade Hutson and Kent Krueger were surprised to find this iguana while rafting in the Guadalupe River.

Lingamfelter to dive at nationals Scoreboard after stellar performance at zone
Jenny Lingamfelter enjoyed the best diving meet of her distinguished career recently, advancing to the Junior Olympic national finals with a dominating performance in the zone meet.
Lingamfelter, who turned 14 in April and competed for the first time in the 14-15 age group, won two events and placed second in another at the zone diving meet in Oklahoma City — qualifying for nationals in all three events.
“She probably dove better than she has in her life,” said her father, Pete Lingamfelter of New Braunfels.
She is a member of the Texas Diving Club in Austin, and was the only diver among that elite group to qualify in all three events. The top five places move on in each event.
Lingamfelter’s top performance at the meet was on the 3-meter board, where she had her best-ever showing.
She compiled 451 points during the IO dives from the 3-meter springboard, winning the event by a comfortable
margin. The second-place diver canted 422 points, with third place being a distant 351.
Lingamfelter also won the I-meter springboard, compiling a personal record 395 points in that event. The runner-up finishers earned 376 and 365 points.
On the high platform, which is IO meters high, Lingam-feltcr placed second overall behind Houston diver Kathy Pesck. Pcsek’s 295 points beat Lingamfelter by a mere seven points, as she canted second with 288.
She advances in all three events to the July 24-27 national championships in Clayton, Missouri, near St. Louis. There will be 27 of the top divers in the country compting in each category.
If Lingamfelter wins any of the events at nationals, she will be invited as a member of the Junior Olympic first-place team to go to Sweden on August IO. She went to Mexico City two years ago after attending the national championship meet.scores

DETROIT (AIO — If the Detroit Tigers and Texas Rangers played more often, people might quit complaining about long ballgames.
Rob Deer’s two-run, IOth-inning homer gave the Tigers a 6-4 victory over Texas on Wednesday and a sweep of the three-game series with the Rangers.
It was an exciting series. Even Texas Manager Bobby Valentine thought so, despite being on the losing end.
“U seems like every time we turn around against these guys, something happens,” Valentine said. “But I’ve been around baseball long enough to know that’ll change."
The win gave the Tigers a 5-4 edge this season with three games remaining, all in Texas.
Nearly all of the games between the Rangers and Tigers have been close. Six were decided by one run and two others by two runs.
Texas hit five home runs in this three-game series. The Tigers hit six, bul none by Cecil Fielder, the American League leader with 23.
“These were great games,” Detroit Manager Sparky Anderson said. “If you saw three games like that in the playoffs or World Series, you’d go away talking about it. I know they weren’t great for Texas, but if you were impartial, you’d love these games."
Deer certainly did. He has just two hits in 23 at-bais since the All-Star break and his average has fallen to .185.
But at this rate, Deer might be the most valuable .185 hitter in the major leagues. His last two hits both were homers. The one he hit Tuesday night, breaking an 0-for-18 spell, lied the game in the eighth and the Tigers won that one in the ninth.
"I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t frustrated," Deer said. “But I never said I’d win a baiting title. I sure appreci-American League

Wayne Rosenthal (1-1) started the 10th by walking Pete litcaviglia. Deer then hit the next pitch into die left field seats, above the 165 loot mark, for his 19th horner.
“ll was a good pitch,” Rosenthal said. “I wanted a slider, down and away. Deer just reached out and got extended and did the rest with his wrists. Maybe I won’t throw him that pilch again, but you never know. Maybe he was guessing, too.”
The defeat was especially frustrating for Valentine, who loris the Rangers have played outstanding baseball since the All Star break. Bul they have almost nothing to show for it.

“I’ll be glad to gel home,” Valentine said. “Now, we’ll get that last alba! for a while. Boy that last at-bat has hun us lately.”
Walt Terrell (6-9), making his second relief appearance since being sent to the bullpen, gave up two hits over the last three innings for the Tigers.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The way things keep happening to their starting pitchers, the Houston Astros may ask to be included in the next round of amis talks.
Hey, buddy, can you spare ... a pitcher?
His team already down 0-2 in a three-game series against Pittsburgh, die hottest team in the majors, Astros Manager Art Howe saw his starting pitcher leave with a first-inning injury for die second night in a row.
With his bullpen in tatters and his hitters facing Cy Young winner Doug Drabek, winner of seven of his last eight, it figured to be a long night for die Astros.
It was — the game lasted a tedious 3 hours and 33 minutes — but it wasn’t because the last-place Astros were down and out. It was because Drabek (9-9) and the rest of Pittsburgh's five pitchers couldn’t get them out.
Ken Caminiii had three hits and drove in three runs and Luis Gonzalez went 4-for-5 as the Astros rocked Drabek and the Pirates 10-2 Wednesday night. The win ended the Astros’ five-game slide and Pittsburgh’s seven-game winning streak.
Howe may be the only manager in the majors who must call the emergency room before making out his starting rotation.
Just a night after Jim Deshaies left with a bruised forearm after throwing just three pitches, Mark Portugal — Houston’s lop winner with eight victories — made only 11 pitches before straining his right groin.NB conducts football camp
