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.

It was a week full of history making moments for the 2018-19 Lady Bulldog basketball team. The girls in green won three more playoffs games last week, including a Regional quarterfinal game over El Campo, a Regional semifinal game over Beeville, and the Regional Final match on Saturday night over Liberty Hill. The girls are now 31-7 on the season, and for the first time in school history Burnet will be represented at the UIL State basketball tournament. Pictured above Burnet accepts their Regional Championship trophy after knocking off rival Liberty Hill, 52-36 in the finals. Players and coaches include Makenna Gilmore, Karley Denton, Haley McHam, Halee Muccigrossi, Coach Rick Gates, Caitlynne Graves, Emma Lewis, Hattie Blair, Paris Brinkley, Trynadee Greenwell, Kendal Connolly, Kathleen Fipps, Coach Lacy Parker, Coach Chelsea Sivells, Sydne Massoletti, Gracyn Bennett, and Kyli Davis.

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.
