Cougarettes blast Austin Travis in quarterfinal game
(Editor’s Note: This story was received at 8:50 p.m. Saturday, after the B section of the paper, which includes sports, had already gone to press.)
From staff reports
The Canyon Cougarettes blasted their way into the regional semi-finals Saturday night after outlasting Austin Travis 15-9, 15-13 in a grueling quarter-final matchup in San Marcos.
Austin Travis served blistering shots all evening, according to Canyon coach Donna Boehle, but the Cougarettes answered with real firepower of their own.
“It was extremely exciting. We were, offensively, very
strong and very aggressive,” a breathless Boehle said after the match.
Her Cougarettes will take on Flour Bluff in a quarterfinal match this week.
“We were never threatened in the first game, but they really got in front of us in the second,” Boehle said. “But we stayed cool and calm.”
Among a team of standouts, several players played exceptionally well, Boehle said. Setter Marci Allen had 16 assists, eight digs and one ace. Tiffany Wagner also played outstanding for CHS, recording IO kills. Call Courtney added five kills, and Leslie Reimer made 11 digs.

The first name, which is in the history books, is Audie L. Murphy, a World War II veteran, who is now a deceased member of the Medal of Honor recipients.
Sen. Bob Kerry, who in the Vietnam conflict while fighting stepped on a land mine and lost his leg. He had a desire to survive and returned to the American mainstream.
Pfc. David Barkley Cantu, a World War I veteran, lost his life while per-, forming heroic actions on Nov. 9, 1918, two days before Armistice Day. Cantu’s body was returned to Texas and is one of two servicemen whose bodies laid in state at the Alamo in San Antonio. Cantu will be remembered as being the first Hispanic awarded the Medal of Honor. He is buried in the national cemetery in San Antonio, along with 12 other Medal of Honor recipients. His grave and all the other American heroes can be visited daily by all who would like to pay their respects.
Master Sgt. Roy Benavides of El Campo was awarded the Medal of
Honor for his heroic deeds in Vietnam. This award was presented to him 14 years after the Vietnam conflict, and he is the last Medal of Honor recipient in the United States. He is also the last Hispanic member of our armed services to receive the Medal of Honor. Benavides is very active in speaking to individuals, groups and in visiting high schools. The main thrust of his program is to stay in school and stay free of chugs.
These heroes are remembered by their families and friends and should be remembered by all of us in America, for these heroes answered their commitment to our military service and went above and beyond the call of duty.
In our society, servicemen come from all walks and races of life. They have contributed their lives to fight for freedom, to protect us from oppression and fear. The following is a personal comment of the injustice done to servicemen: Many of our servicemen and women come from different nationalities and have served in all wars. But they have not been given the recognition they deserve due to the color of their skin. We are proud to
say that there has been a correction in the manner in which a person is chosen to receive the Medal of Honor.
There have recently been IO names submitted to the president of the United States, the secretary of Defense and the secretary of the Army, of which were chosen seven veterans of African-American descent who will receive this prestigious medal. Out of the seven African-Americans chosen, six are deceased. The Medal of Honor will be presented in the near future to the families of each recognized serviceman.
I am proud to know that this is a good beginning for change. We finally have recognized that no matter what the color of skin, the Medal of Honor is presented to anyone who bravely fights in war time. I also believe that there will be more Medal of Honor recipients who represent all American nationalities, from the Vietnam War, Korean War and from World War I and World War II.

Gus Culwell, Comal County veteran services officer, said there are many veterans in the ax inly his office is trying to help.
“Right now, the latest count we have, there are 7,550 veterans (in Comal County),” Culwell said. “There is a pretty good mixture of World War II, Vietnam and the Gulfwar.”
Culwell’s office assists veterans in getting much needed services from Veteran’s Administration hospitals and facilities.
“There are many things we as a service office can assist them with, like helping them with transportation,” Cul-
well said. “We are here to assist in any way we can with their problems. Right now we are working on possibly getting a van for needy veterans to transport them to medical facilities.”

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many volunteers who work in the Senior booth, from the carpenters and painters to the coordinators, cooks and sales people. It is this kind of cooperation and friendship that make it all a success.
