The Unicorns, leading 8-7, clinched a trip to state when Goldman won her match and Bartram, down a set, won the second set to guarantee New Braunfels the win in the event of a tiebreaker. All the matches up to that point had been straight-set victories. In case of a tie, the number of sets won is the first tiebreaker. But Bartram came back to w in his match, making it a moot point. Bartram said die New Braunfels fan support sparked his comeback. “In the first set, I didn’t have anybody supporting me,” he said. “In the second and third, everybody came over. I was inspired.’’ Goldman agreed, adding that the importance of her match also gave her a lift. “I had no idea (what the score was). I asked our coach (Susan Citek), ‘Have we won yet?,’ and she kind of stuttered and said we needed matches," she said. “Our team and all the parents really helped a lot. We really came together as a team today." The team effort and support was high on the long list of things Coach David Mueller liked about the meet. “They lifted some of these games up,” he said. ‘‘I couldn’t be more pleased with the way they’ve done that." Neither Goldman nor Bartram played at the district meet. Both were alternates, winning challenge matches during the week. Bartram is a doubles specialist, and Goldman, who Mueller believed was a little burned out on tennis, had to be talked into rejoining See TENNIS, Page 14A Sandinistas to break 19-month cease-fire SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) — President Daniel Ortega said anew today that Nicaragua’s Sandinista government will break a 19-month cease-fire with U.S.-backed Contra guerrillas, but he refused to say when. “I don’t want to abuse the hospitality of Costa Rica and so the date on which the cease-fire will be suspended will be announced in Nicaragua,” he told a news conference. The leader of Nicaragua’s leftist government added, however, that he would keep observing the cease-fire if the United States decided to “take the money it gives to the counterrevolutionaries and gives it instead to the United Nations so that it can be used to demobilize the rebels inside and outside of Nicaragua.” Ortega had shocked a hemispheric meeting on peace and democracy Friday by saying the cease-fire could not hold because of stepped up attacks by rebel guerrillas. He made the announcement in a speech at the University of Costa Rica. President Bush, at a news conference, called it "a shameful blow to democracy” if Ortega docs end the cease-fire and renew hostilities. He called Ortega "this little man ... in a military uniform” and criticized Ortega’s conduct at the hemispheric meeting on democracy. The cease-fire has been extended on a monthly basis since March 23, 1988, with die latest extension run- So CONTRAS, Page 2A Six Americans seized in Mozambique capital MAPUTO, Mozambique (AP) — Government soldiers seized six members of an American medical team and two South African colleagues and held them at a military compound in northern Mozambique, U.S. officials said Saturday. In Carlsbad, Calif., David Courson, president of the Carlsbad-based Christian Emergency Relief, said late Saturday that all eight had been flown to the capital of Maputo. He reported information received from Mozambique saying the eight had been held at a military outpost at Tete, near the border, and were flown 290 miles south to Maputo. He said U.S. Ambassador Melissa Wells was to meet with them there Sunday morning. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Anita Stockman said in Washington thai American authorities were told the eight were still in the custody of Mozambican soldiers and were being transported to Maputo.
