Schubert to coach at Avinger

Burnet’s Lady Bulldog AD David Schubert announced last week that he has accepted a job to coach boys basketball at 1A Avinger next season and will be leaving Burnet at the end of the 2017 school year. Burnet will also be losing his wife Casey Schubert who coached cross county and track. The two are pictured above after the Lady Dawgs basketball bi-district win.

By Wayne Craig Bulletin Sports Burnet Lady Bulldog Athletic Director and head basketball coach David Schubert has accepted an AD job at 1A Avinger High School where he will also be the head boys basketball coach. Schubert came to Burnet from Marble Falls in 2016 and spent one year leading the Lady Bulldog basketball program. Under his direction Burnet made it two rounds deep in the UIL State Playoffs. Basketball is the main sport at Avinger and Schubert said it was just perfecting timing since both of his boys will be playing at the high school level next spring. “I was contacted about the job twice and spent a lot of time praying about the situation. We love Burnet and had no intention of staying only one year but the timing is perfect for my family,” said Schubert.

Dawgs advance position with win at Leander

Bulldog senior Tyler Ford lays down a nice bunt during Tuesday’s game at Leander Glenn. Ford and his Bulldog teammates handed the Grizzlies a 12-6 loss to earn their second win in district play. Burnet wrapped up round one on Tuesday in Liberty Hill and will host the Taylor Ducks to kick off second round play this Friday.

By Wayne Craig Bulletin Sports The varsity Bulldog baseball squad picked-up their second district win last Tuesday night with a 12-6 victory over the Leander Grizzlies. Burnet combined for 14 hits in the contest and improved their shot at the playoffs with their efforts moving them ahead of Llano and Leander. Each team scored one run in the first inning. Burnet took a 3-1 lead after they plated one runner in each of the third and fourth innings, but in the bottom of the fourth the Grizzlies pushed across three runners to take a 4-3 lead. Burnet wasted little time with their comeback. The Bulldogs scored four in the fifth, four in the sixth and one on the seventh. They held Leander to just two additional runs in the bottom of the sixth for the 12-6 victory. Koby Edwards had a monster game at the plate. Edwards went four for four with a double and three triples. He scored four runs and had a team leading four RBIs. Dylan King also had a nice hit for a double.

Soccer journey ends at Area with loss

Burnet senior Madelinne Deitrick flies through the air for a head shot to advance the ball for the Lady Dawgs during last Friday’s Area round playoff game. Burnet faced a very talented Boerne team and unfortunately were eliminated from post season play with a 5-0 loss to the Lady Greyhounds.

By Wayne Craig Bulletin Sports The Lady Bulldog’s first official season of soccer came to an end last Friday night as team green fell short to the Boerne Lady Greyhounds in the Area round of the state playoffs. The loss brings Burnet’s final season record to rest at 13-7-1. After finishing 9-3 in district play Burnet entered the playoffs and faced the La Grange Lady Leopards in the first round. Burnet dominated the match and eliminated the Lady Leopards with a 7-2 win. That victory set the stage for Burnet to meet Boerne in the Area round. The Bulldogs and the Greyhounds had met once before back in January. That contest ended 2-0 in Boerne’s favor but Burnet was looking forward to a rematch that would feature some players they were missing in January. Boerne entered the contest 16-2-1, and other than a 2-1 loss to Argyle in a playoff warm-up game, the Lady Greyhounds had rolled off 14-straight victories.

The Search is on

From the Dawg House Wayne Craig There have been several things being searched for in Burnet lately; the Kiser’s White Tahoe tops the list. The SUV was stolen from their garage in the middle of the afternoon on Thursday. As of presstime it still hadn’t been located. Burnet high school is also in the hunt for a new girls’ athletic director. Coach David Schubert announced on Tuesday that he would be accepting a job at Avinger High School, where he will have the opportunity to coach his own boys at a school known for their basketball success. While it was disappointing to hear the news, I completely understand a man taking advantage of opportunity when it presents itself. Best of luck to the Schubert family as they relocate to the deep east Texas town of Avinger. Now the search is on for a new girls’ AD. A number of applicants have already put in for the job, and some of those are well known to Burnet. We will keep you updated on the progress.
