With a four-over 40, Burns felt he could have played stronger. "I had already played IS today,” lie explained softly. “I hit my drives tine, but gave up my putting game on the 1st and 3rd.” Bums putted within six inches of the final hole from eight feet out before finalizing the three-stroke lead. The NBJGA tournament was courtesy of PGA Professional John Ferguson Jr., and was held at San Marcos’ Quail Creek Country Club, drawing one of the largest fields of talent in the area.

Two New Braunfels Middle school golfers, Josh Speck and Hagen Cohle. were tied at 44 for third, with the final ruling going in favor of Speck.

With a 10-5 victory over the Hays Lady Rebels on Tuesday, the Unicorns (14-8, 6-0) stayed unbeaten in District 28-4A and put the magic number for a post-season bid at two more wins. “It’s looking real good for us right now, but we know there’s still four games left in the second round,” NBHS coach Cindy Manley said. “We have to keep working and give it our best shot because everyone is going to be coming after us.” The Lockhart Lady Lions (13-10, 4-2), winners over Bastrop, remained two games behind New Braunfels in the district standings. A four-run rally in the fifth inning secured the Unicorns’ two game cushion in district and sixth straight win. Hays (11-9, 2-4) jumped out to 4-0 lead in the first inning. The Unicorns closed the gap to 5-4 in the third inning then took the lead in the fourth.

It was Blue’s second home run of the season. Roberts added a two-RBI double in the fifth inning that scored April Tuch and Melinda Aguirre. Braune’s suicide bunt then brought in Roberts and capped the scoring. Blue went 2-for-4 with a home mn and a double. Roberts was 2-for-3, with 2RBI.
