Graves finishes a perfect 10

Graves finishes a perfect 10- Varsity Bulldog player Caelin Graves had high hopes the playoff ride would continue past Area for he and his longtime teammates. Burnet didn’t get the Area win but the senior standout gave a near flawless effort in his final BHS games. Graves was a perfect 10-for-10 at the free-throw line and scored 20 points in the Area round playoff game. Before that he was a perfect eight-of-eight in Bi-District and turned in a team leading 26 points.

Bi-district win, heartbreaking loss

After defeating Giddings 74-58 for a Bi-District Championship the Bulldogs pose with their newest gold ball. Leading scorers from that Bi-District game were Caelin Graves, 26; Drew Kiser, 22; and Kyle Cavender, 10.

By Wayne Craig Bulletin Sports The varsity Bulldog basketball team entered the UIL state playoffs last Tuesday night with a Bi-District match-up against Giddings. It was a surprising start for some, as the Buffaloes jumped out to a 14-10 lead after one. It was a slow offensive start for the Dawgs with Drew Kiser and Ryan Robertson leading the way in the first with three points each. Caelin Graves and Kyle Cavender each chipped in a bucket, but Burnet was down four going into the second. The next eight-minutes of play were much different for the Dawgs. Burnet posted 25 points in the second period, while holding Giddings to just 11 for a 35-25 lead at the break. The Dawgs took five trips to the charity line in the second, between three players, and they cashed in all 10 points. Kiser hit six of those. After the break it was Graves who got hot. He kick started the third with a three-pointer and went on to post 11 of the Dawgs 15 in the period.

Ride ends at area, Diamonds light up

By Wayne Craig From the Dawg House Burnet high school basketball provided a lot of great memories this season from exciting district match-ups to the playoff games. Unfortunately it all came to an end Friday night. The varsity boys traveled to UMHB in Belton for a contest versus Lorena in the Area round of the state playoffs. Our boys left it all on the floor in a very exciting contest but when the final buzzer sounded it was a heartbreaking 73-69 loss for the beloved Bulldogs. Burnet fans couldn’t have been more proud of these guys, especially the 2017 seniors. A special Attawaytogo to the seniors, you guys have been a joy to watch over the years and have left us with countless awesome memories. When longtime fans reflect back on BHS basketball the 2017 senior class will join those select teams that come to mind. You guys have left a great blueprint for future Bulldogs with your on and off the court actions. Way to be!
