Dawgs open district Friday at Taylor

By Wayne Craig
 
With their pre-district games behind them the Bulldogs will focus on Taylor this week. Burnet will play their first District 25-4A basketball game on Friday night at the home of the Taylor Ducks. The Ducks are always an unpredictable team; they have numerous athletes year after year but at times have struggled to play as teams which often costs them. The Bulldogs have had their own share of setbacks this season, including injuries; they are hoping they can quickly get everyone on board for what will be a tough road of district competition.

A look back at the Burnet Bulldogs of 2014

By Wayne Craig
 
What a year 2014 was in Bulldog territory. There were numerous groups that made the playoffs and went far beyond the Bi-District round. Burnet had a state swimmer, a state tennis team, a 7 on 7 team that competed at state, state cross country runners and the Esprit de Corp took it all the way to the big show. Like most year’s their were some good and bad headlines. Controversy marred the papers a few times. The town mourned the passing of Ramsey Clinton, Ed Abernathy and a couple of young people who lost their lives way to soon.
