Burnet varsity Lady Dawg soccer player Phebe Musasa elevates to an incredible height during a downfield sprint. If that weren't enough, Burnet's leaping Lady Dawg made a solid connection with the ball, sending it on the righ tpath from a difficult angle. The LIttle River Academy goalie made the stop but Musasa certainly wowed her spectators, and the Lady Dawgs went on to win the match 3-1.

Left: The enforcer: In the games of soccer, hockey, and other physical sports there’s always a few guys on the team that don’t take no mess. When opposing players get rough and want to play a little dirty these guys just smile and respond. Ruben Rodriguez is one of those dudes. Things got real chippy at times last Tuesday versus Jarrell with plenty of extra-curricular and the Bulldogs No.14 quickly became the enforcer to settle some visitors down.
Right: The Burnet varsity Lady Dawg soccer team saw some struggles in pre-district play but they’ve gotten off to a great start in district and are now 3-0. Pictured above varsity team member, Phebe Musasa, leaps high into the air while competing for the ball in last week’s game versus Jarrell. The Lady Dawgs won that contest, 4-1.

Our ancestors were once able to behold the twinkling night sky like the one pictured after every sunset, but thanks to inefficient outdoor lighting, that experience is becoming endangered. The Night Sky Conservation movement was started in hopes of reversing this sad truth, and Lauren Sweat, an intern at Inks Lake State Park, is doing her part in educating residents of the Hill Country on the issue.
