Big week of sports in Burnet

Burnet varsity Lady Dawg soccer player Phebe Musasa elevates to an incredible height during a downfield sprint. 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.

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.
