Big week of sports in Burnet

Wayne Craig/Clear Memories
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.

Carter earns fourth-straight ticket to State; Dawg Track Team does well at Regionals

Wayne Craig/Clear Memories
Looking back it seems like a blur: Burnet senior track athlete, Ian Carter, has done it again. This outstanding young man will be making his fourth consecutive trip to the state meet in Austin to compete in the 110 hurdles. It’s no surprise to those who have followed his track career, nonetheless it’s a remarkable achievement. Many remember seeing this young man on the track for the first time back in junior high, and thinking wow. He’s wowed his cheering section from that point on and not just for his sports achievements. His career in Burnet has flown by in a blur, like most of his races, but Carter is not quite done. In recent weeks he again won district, area, and regionals and now he’s focused on one gold medal that has eluded him to this point. Regardless what happens on May 12 in Austin Ian Carter will leave BHS as one of the most decorated track athletes to ever wear Burnet’s kelly green. His track career will continue at Texas State where he will attend starting this fall on a track scholarship. Watch for more on Carter following the state meet.

Five Burnet track athletes traveled to Huntsville last Friday to test their skills at the Regional level. When it was all said and done on Saturday evening the Bulldogs brought home a Regional gold and bronze medal as well as lifelong memories of a great track season.

Senior athlete Ian Carter, once again ran an impressive race in the men’s 110 high hurdles. He has been Mr. Automatic all year collecting gold medals each time he steps on the track and Friday was no exception. Carter lined up against the best the region had to offer and still earned a gold medal with a blazing 14.40. The first place finish will have him returning to state for the fourth-straight time, a fitting end to a journey he started his freshman year.
