Bobcats seek higher goal
SWT wants a bid at College World Series
AUSTIN (AP) — Winning the Southland Conference baseball championship and earning an NCAA Regional bid weren’t Southwest Texas State’s goals for this season.
The Bobcats say the accomplishments were only milestones on the team’s route to the College World Series.
“We don’t just want to show up,” Bobcats coach Howard Bushong said of the NCAA playoffs. “I want to do something both for our program and our conference. We’re not just happy to be there.”
“Our kids believe in themselves. They think they can go to Omaha.”
Southwest Texas (35-24) is the No. 6 seed at the NCAA Central Regional in Lubbock. The Bobcats face top-seeded Texas Tech (46-12) at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Southwest Texas isn’t necessarily
the underdog despite its seeding. This season, the team has beaten NCAA qualifiers Texas A&M, Rice and Central Florida. The Bobcats are 4-5 against NCAA-qualifying teams.
“It’s a big help to the kids,” Bushong said. “That's what they keep saying. We’ve played these people, we know what it takes to get it done.”
Southwest Texas secured the school’s first Southland Conference title with a two-game sweep of Texas-San Antonio Sunday in the conference tournament. Bobcats pitchers posted a 2.72 ERA in the tournament while hitters set nine tournament records, including a .374 team batting average over six games.
The Bobcats started the season with pitching depth and have come around at the end of the season with strong offense, scoring 47 runs in the last four games of the conference tournament.
Part of the depth comes from Southland Conference tournament

never once called the league office about officiating,” said Utah coach Jerry Sloan. “That’s part of this game you have to accept.”
If anything, the referees treated Malone like they’re supposed to treat everyone else. But in a league where high-profile stars are accustomed to a favorable double standard, it was particularly vexing for Malone to be treated so pedestnan-hke on the very night he received his MVP trophy from commissioner David Stem.
Opposing teams have long complained that Malone and Co. receive favorable treatment from the refs — especially at home. Malone led the

league in free throw attempts with 690 during the regular season.
“When he wasn’t getting calls, I wasn’t fouling him,” Barkley said. “He gets frustrated because every time he gets bumped, he thinks he gets fouled. They’re really not fouls, but he gets them in the regular season. lf the refs don’t give him flop fouls, I can play him.”
Texas women rally, win conference title
WACO (AP) — The Texas Lady Longhorns went into the final day of the Big 12 track and field meet in ninth place, 23 points behind leader Nebraska.
“I was very nervous,” UT women’s coach Bcv Kearney said. “But it wasn’t the type of nervous where you hope someone else falters. I knew it was just a matter of doing what we had to do and we’d be fine ”
They were even better than that. The Lady Horns dominated Sunday’s sprint events so thoroughly that they ended up winning the meet by 27 points. That’s an amazing swing of 50 points.
Four events made the difference: the 4x100-meter relay and the IOO-, 200- and 400-meter dashes.
Nanceen Perry got things rolling by blowing through the pack on the second leg of the relay. The team won in 43.6 seconds, a season-best.Select HomesWe’ll Locate Your Land for Your New Home!

MVP Jeremy Fikac. The third baseman proved himself at the plate with a .391 batting average, but also has been a surprise on the mound.
Fikac pitched a 5-3 loss to Texas-Pan American in February before coming back in April with victories over Texas and Texas A&M.
He pitched again in the last conference series with a shutout and a season-high 11 strikeouts before picking up a win and a save in last weekend’s conference tournament.
The junior is a possible starter for Thursday’s game against Texas Tech.

like this came up.
Woods last week said he was disturbed that Zoeller walked away after .paying the fried chicken remark, then turned and added, “and collard greens, or whatever it is they serve.” He remained upset by it after their talk.
“I have a problem with anyone saying it in that tone,” Woods said after the meeting. Woods said the meeting lasted 20 minutes and Zoeller placed it at 12 minutes.
“Fuzzy and I had a nice lunch and a nice conversation and I found out some things I needed to know,” Woods. “Now I understand where he was coming from.”
Big 12 track
The 400 was next and Texas began making its move as Suziann Reid was first and teammates took up third, fifth and eighth — good for 21 points. Next was the best race of the day, the IOO.
Teammates Sabrina Kelly and Perry crossed the tape in 11.29. It took a photo to figure out that Kelly actually won by a smidgen. Other Lady Longhorns were fourth, fifth and eighth.
Then, there was the 200. Perry won in a personal-best 22.73, with teammates finishing second, third, fifth and seventh for a whopping 30 points.
Over just those four events the Lady Longhorns scored 89 points. Runner-up Nebraska, which scored I IO points, was the only team to score more than that for the entire meet.
