Dawgs dominate Hawks

by Wayne Craig

The varsity Bulldog baseball team only chalked-up one more hit than the visiting Hawks last week, 9-8, but Team Green completely dominated when it came to the score beating Canyon Lake, 10-4. Neither team played error-free ball but it was Canyon Lake that struggled the most with eight errors in the game.

The Bulldogs hit well in the bottom of the first scoring two runs off two doubles. Burnet also scored two runs in the second inning to take an early 4-2 lead. The second inning scoring was led by a RBI single hit by Rowdy Holmes that plated Reid Dalrymple.

Canyon Lake moved a little closer with one run scored in the top of the third making it 4-3 Burnet.

Burnet once again posted two runs in the bottom of the fourth and that offense was kicked-off by a Peyton Utsey triple that scored Dalrymple.

Successful first year for Burnet soccer

Harris is the only player the Lady Dawgs will lose to graduation at the end of their inaugural season. In 2017 the Bulldogs and Lady Dawgs will compete for the first time in district play. They were placed in District 25-4A which hosts nine girls’ teams and eight boys’ teams.

For the first time in school history, Burnet fielded two soccer teams and both opened play with very successful seasons in 2016.

Because of it being a non-realignment year the Bulldog teams did not play district games and competed mostly against junior varsity squads.

Next season, the Bulldogs and Lady Dawgs will compete on the varsity level in Region IV, District 25-4A. That district will play host to nine schools including Burnet, Lampasas, Leander Glenn, Liberty Hill, Salado, Florence, Georgetown Gateway, Jarrell, and Little River Academy. The Georgetown Gateway school will only have a girls team competing so the boys district will feature only eight teams.

Both the Lady Dawgs and Bulldogs collected numerous wins throughout the 2016 season. Most recently the Lady Dawgs earned three wins scoring 14 points to their opponents one. Burnet defeated the Lampasas Lady Badgers, 5-0; Gateway Academy, 5-1; and Liberty Hill, 4-0 on March 7.
