By Wayne Craig

Bulletin Sports

The 53rd Burnet County Rodeo is slated for this weekend, May 10-11. This is the third year for the rodeo to be held in May. Previous years the Burnet County Rodeo was held in June, but weather conditions seem to be more favorable in May; it tends to be cooler which is better for the livestock and the athletes.

Events will kick-off each night at 7 p.m. Adult tickets are $15 at the gate, $5 ages 6-9, 5 and under are free. You can expect to see riders participate in bareback bronc riding, bull riding, calf roping, barrel racing, breakaway roping, saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, and team roping.

In addition to the regular rodeo events kids will have an opportunity to get involved with a calf scramble, shoe scramble, and mutton bustin event which is always a crowd favorite.

Big week of sports in Burnet

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.

The echoes from all the cheering in Kingsville during the Lady Dawgs win over Liberty Hill this past Saturday can almost still be heard today, “We’re state bound baby!”

Those words were being shouted from the roof tops.

The Lady Dawgs exciting 52-36 victory certainly took its toll on some vocal chords. Get them healed up quick fans, because you’re going to need them again Friday at the San Antonio Alamodome.

That’s where the State Tournament is being held; the Lady Dawgs’ semi-final match is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. versus Hardin-Jefferson. It’s been an incredible journey and it’s not done yet!

A huge congratulations to Coach Rick Gates, Lacy Parker, Chelsea Sivells and the entire Lady Dawg team. Saying you guys have made Burnet proud would be an understatement.

Exciting district play happening in soccer

Wayne Craig/Clear Memories
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.

District competition is warming up for Burnet’s soccer teams and last week had some exciting matches for both the boys and the girls. The Lady Dawgs have moved their district record to 3-0 with three-straight wins. Burnet has knocked off Little River Academy, 2-1; Jarrell, 4-1; and most recently Florence, 6-0.

“The team’s confidence seems to be growing exponentially with each game,” said head coach Matthew Russell.

On the boys side the Bulldogs played Academy last Friday and almost pulled off a comeback win. Wyatt Young cut the score to 3-1 late in the second half, and Eduardo Medina added to the comeback making it 3-2 late in the contest with a goal of his own. The Bulldogs did score another goal for the tie, but an offsides penalty nullified the score, resulting in a 3-2 loss.

On Tuesday the Dawgs hosted Jarrell.

The Bulldog and Lady Bulldog soccer teams have been hard at work preparing for district play and the time is now near. The Dawgs will be competing in District 27-4A which plays host to Burnet, Lampasas, Liberty Hill, Salado, Florence, Jarrell, and Little River Academy.

The Lady Bulldog team has been going through some growing pains in addition to fighting through injuries to some top players. The girls, who are sitting at 2-9 on the season, have picked up wins over Cole and Allan College Prep. They most recently lost to Marble Falls and China Spring. They have high hopes that their senior leaders will be able to return to play soon and that they will be able to make a nice run in their district competition.

On the boys side the Dawgs lost to Hutto 3-0 in a JV/Varsity mix game, and then fell to La Vernia’s varsity at home on Tuesday, 4-1.

Bulldog lifters increase their loads

The Burnet powerlifting team competed at their host meet last Thursday and just about everyone who grabbed a bar set a new personal record.

There is still a lot to learn for some newbies; like hitting depth, waiting on commands, and learning lift patterns but all-in-all it was a pretty successful meet for our local lifters.

There were some pretty incredible feats accomplished by those in Bulldog green.

Roger Craig, 242 pound lifter, set the bar high right out of the gate with a 600 pound squat on his final lift. That was only 20 pounds shy of the school record set by Jesus Palacios in 2008.

Craig ended the night with the best heavy platform squat, 600 pounds; best bench press, 395; and collected the triple crown with the best deadlift as well, 565, for a 1,565 total. At the end of the night, for the second week in a row, he earned the best overall lifter of the meet award.

As of Monday’s presstime the Lady Dawgs were sitting at 23-7 overall, 5-2 in district, which had them as the No. 2 seed in District 27-4A. Burnet suffered their second loss to Liberty Hill in the first game of the second round last Tuesday night in Burnet. It was a frustrating thing to watch unfold for many in attendance. The Lady Dawgs had an early 8-0 lead and were still controlling things at half, 22-15, just before the wheels fell off. Nothing went right for the girls in green in the second-half.

Liberty Hill’s Jessica Holliday, a 5’7 sophomore, wreaked havoc in the third. She drained four three-points and was a perfect two-of-two at the line for 14 points. She was also perfect at the line in the fourth and the Lady Panthers added 30 points in the final two periods of play.
