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.

The Lady Bulldogs put together a great team for the 2016 season. Burnet’s girls entered post season play with a 21-4-1 overall record, and finished district as co-champs with a 9-1 record. They had great leadership from their five seniors and many thought a long playoff run was in store for this well balanced team.

Burnet met-up with the Wimberley Lady Texans in Llano on Thursday night for the Bi-District round of the state playoffs. The Lady Texans brought a quality team to the diamond, 24-9 on the year.

It wasn’t the first meeting between the two. Burnet played them in their third game of the season winning that contest, 6-4. It’s often been said it’s a difficult task to be a good team twice in the same season, and that proved to be true Thursday night.


Tough loss for Lady Dawgs

The Burnet varsity softball team made the trip to Elgin last Tuesday and found a very good Lady Wildcat team waiting. Burnet posted a double and five singles in the game but could not put hits together to score runs and fell short in the low-scoring contest, 2-0.

Elgin had some success at the bat with eight hits in the game and one run scored in third and another in the sixth.

Makenzie Carpenter hit Burnet’s lone double, while singles were recorded by Lexey Parker, Marissa Escamilla, Alex Barry, and Ashley Hallmark with two.

It was a battle of two very good pitchers with Carpenter striking out seven Wildcats and Burnet suffering nine strikeouts.
