The New Braunfels All-Stars completed a banner week at the sectionals tournament in Seguin, going undefeated and advancing to the Junior League State Tournament in Waco on Sunday.New Braunfels All-Stars knock off Lee County 18-8
By THOMAS GODLEY
SEGUIN — The New Braunfels All Stars are headed to Waco and into the local history books.
With an 18-8 dismantling of the Lee County All-Stars on Wednesday night, the NB All-Stars became the city’s first team to advance to the Junior League State Tournament.
"This is something these kids will look back on with pride later in life," NB manager Floyd Chapman said. "They’ve made their mark, and they never doubted they could do it. When they play strong defense and stick with it, they are hard to beat."
The trek through sectionals was a display of complete dominance. The NB All-Stars went
undefeated in four games during the tournament and outscored opponents 48-18. A 3-0 game against Bastrop last Saturday was the closest any team came.
Two of the wins ended on the 10-run rule after five innings.
It was the same story against Lee County. On Monday they were pelted 13-6. In the rematch New Braunfels pounded out 12 hits and took a 17-3 lead heading into the fifth inning.
Lee County had jumped out to a 2-0 lead but must have known they were in trouble when Lee County pitcher Bryan Priem gave up four runs on one hit in the first inning.
The real avalanche of runs came in the fourth inning. Priem left the game shell shocked by an NB All-Stars' barrage that bombed him with nine hits and 12 runs.
The high-scoring affair didn't reflect New Braunfels' control on defense. While Lee County was committing seven errors, NB infielders were calmly scooping up ground-ball hoppers, catching runners in a pickle and leaving potential scorers stranded. Lee County had seven hits and left nine runners on base.
Lee County managed five runs in the fifth inning to extend the game, but Chips Adams crossed the plate with two outs in the sixth to end it on the 10-run rule.
Ty Johnson pitched five innings to earn the win. Bradley George entered in relief and immediately threw heat to notch the save.
“We made history tonight, and we’re going to keep it going,” NB coach Mike Reimer said.
The team leaves Saturday to prepare for their first game on Sunday at 4 p.m. in Waco.

^ Opposing coaches will
-be shaking their head at
these 13-year-old kids with the Natural Bridge Caverns shirts and natural baseball instincts. They won’t find a weak link in the bunch.
Across the board this team is steady as a rock, talented and well-coached. They seem to have golden gloves at every position and the smarts for using those gloves in every defensive situation.
Fans who witnessed their quest to the District 31 title and ensuing romp through sectionals know all about it. We’re talking key hits, smart base running and patience at the plate.
On defense, we’re talking pickoffs, run downs, force outs at home plate, double plays and many men left on base.
Make no mistake, it all centers around defense, and fundamentally these kids are as sound as they come.
There’s a catcher, Cody Chapman, who covers the plate like a wolf and dares runners to go for second. A shortstop, Erie Sultemeier, who deftly handles hard-hiL ground-ball hoppers and owns a silky smooth throw to first. A set of basemen — Cody Reimer, Andy Schmid and Clay Coleman — who control the infield and keep runners and batters at bay. A group of outfielders— Jared Fellers, Chip Adams and Bradley George — who run down, leap high and snag balls that normally would be extra base hits. Utility players like Drew Snider and Cody Erben come in when needed and supply that extra boost.
Behind the scenes are two coaches,
Floyd Chapman and Mike Reimer, who know the right mixture of aggressiveness and patience. Combine that with a deep pitching staff in aces Javier Gonzales and Ty Johnson and we’re talking Dream Team.
For other teams in Waco we’re talking nightmare.

Cowboys, Oilers rusty in first combat
By PAULINE ARRILLAGA
Associated Press Writer
Herald-Zeitung photos by MICHAEL DARNALL Dallas Cowboys tight and Jay Novacek hauled in two passes for 15 yards during Wednesday scimmage against the Oilers.
AUSTIN (AP) — The Air McNair era has begun for the Houston Oilers.
Steve McNair, the Oilers’ newly signed $28 million man, showed he indeed can air it out in a scrimmage against the Dallas Cowboys Wednesday night.
Given the green light to throw on most of his plays in the controlled scrimmage, McNair connected on several short passes, had a neartouchdown pass dropped and another throw in the end zone intercepted.
“I was trying to be patient and take what Dallas gave us,” McNair said after finishing 5-of-10 for 30 yards, including a clutch 14-yard pass on third-and-11.
“I went with the short pass first and then the deep ball,” he said. "I think I did that excellent, but I’ve got a lot of hard work ahead.”
Houston coach Jeff Fisher liked what he saw.
“I was excited. You saw some eyes wide

open on the sideline,” Fisher said. “He threw the ball on target. He showed some mobility. He has a chance lo play in this league.”
The Oilers were the only team to score on one of the five 12-play drives that each offense began at its own 30-yard line.
With the third units on the field, Will Furler hit Todd McNair in the end zone with a 10-yard pass over the middle.
Before Steve McNair look the field, the most intense action of the evening was a fight during special teams drills. Several players took swings at each other after Houston’s Willie Gaston charged the Cowboys’ Alundis Brice.
With each team playing its first units for only one drive, the 14,128 fans who sat in 100-degree heat got just a brief look at star players such as Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin of the Cowboys and Gary Brown of the Oilers.
Houston played quarterbacks Chris Chandler, Bucky Richardson, Furrer and Lee Williamson before putting in McNair, the former Alcorn State star who signed a seven-year contract on Tuesday.
McNair said the “jitterbugs” left his stomach after jogging on the field lo warm cheers from a largely Cowboys’ crowd. McNair hit two short passes before going deep on a 50-yard lob dropped by Chris Sanders.Comal golf tournament aids scholarships

Not another nude golfing event
EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Organizers of a golf tournament that will feature as many as 40 dancers and waitresses from an adult nightclub insist it won’t be a repeat of a 1993 event where witnesses said some women stripped completely naked.
Serinek Walker, manager of operations for the club sponsonng Fnday’s tournament, said the women will be expected to "flirt” and “make the guys feel special.”
“There's not going to he girls taking their clothes off, prostitution or sexual favors for money,” Walker said Wednesday. ‘Thai is not the goal of (his tournament.”
The tournament will be held at the city-owned Painted Dunes golf course, the same course where some golfers who played in the 1993 tournament complained about the nudity and provocative behavior.
“At one hole, a girl asked me for suntan lotion, then took off her top in front of me and a mend to try to get us to put lotion on her,” Albert Ocegueda said.
“One of them even reached for my groin.
They were also offering to dance and show more skin for money.”
Another golfer, who asked to remain anonymous, said some naked women struck provocative poses over the golf cup while players were putting.
“It was the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen,” the golfer said.
Steve Willy, head professional at the golf course, said there was no choice but to allow the club to sponsor a tournament despite the 1993 fracas. He added that rules regarding acceptable course behavior will he taped to every golf cart.
The city has a clause in its lease requiring those who contract with the city to abide by all its rules, thus making it a violation to disrobe on die course, said Assistant City Attorney Robert Ash.
“lf there’s a violation, it’s probably going to be public lewdness, or something,” Ash said.
Dancers at the club were divided over whether they will participate.
