Volleyball talent deep in 25-4A

By Wayne Craig
 
There are only two week’s left in volleyball district play but a playoff picture is not yet clear. Burnet, who is competing in 25-4A, started out at 3-0, but dropped both matches last week to Salado and Liberty Hill to end the first round with a 3-2 record. Ultimately four teams will make the cut, but the higher you are ranked makes a big difference in your early playoff opponents.

Dawgs fend off late surge, 38-28

By Wayne Craig
 
The varsity Burnet football team had to quite literally sweat out a 38-28 victory over the China Spring Courgars last Friday on the road. After jumping to a 28-7 first half lead some may have thought the Bulldogs would coast to victory. That was far from accurate.

Early follies, refined finish: 43-13

By Wayne Craig
 
The varsity Bulldog football team traveled to Taylor last Friday where the Ducks welcomed them as their homecoming visitor. Wrong choice, was the out-of-towner’s thoughts, but after a multitude of first-half follies there were some dubious faces. The Bulldog defense was called in for overtime duty early and often, and were solid as a rock on several occasions. One being an enormous goal line stand with a back-bowing effort that roared with Bulldog pride.

By Wayne Craig
 
Friday night the Fredericksburg Billies rolled into town with a perfect 2-0 record, but they had no idea the storm that awaited. Many were thinking a third-straight week of lightening delays were immanent but the weather held off.
