Burnet junior Alex Barry was a triple threat player for the Lady Dawgs in their final game of the 2017 season on Friday night. With two swings of the bat against the visiting Leander Glenn Lady Grizzlies Barry advanced around the bases to third with one official triple and another single that put her on third after an error. She also scored two runs for Burnet, had a RBI and did a fantastic job at first base all on her 17 birthday.
Burnet senior Rowdy Holmes charges an infield hit and smoothly scoops the ball and throws out a Leander Glenn runner at first base. The Bulldogs won each of their two games last week and Holmes played a key role in both victories. A Holmes sacrifice fly in the final inning of play against Lampasas broke a 3-3 tie and had Burnet winning the contest 4-3. He also hit one of Burnet’s five singles against Glenn.
