May1,2003 Sports & Outdoors Page 9 The Free Press Rebels rout Reagan and move to second round of softball playoffs BY BRENT STRONG Staff Writer AN ANTONIO-Most people want the home field advan- tage in the playoffs. Hays High School Softball Coach Jo Fair doesn't necessarily go for the home field advantage. She just goes for the win. Last Thursday, Farr's Rebel softball team chalked up a deci- sive 9-3 victory over San Antonio Reagan in the first round of the playoffs. The victory was signifi- cant, but so was the venue. The Judson fields, where the game was played, gave Reagan a decid- ed home field advantage. Despite getting just one more hit than Reagan during the game, the Rebels put the hits together better and came away with the win. "I felt very confident with our offense doing so well," senior pitching star Daci DeLeon said. "It allows your nerves to relax." The offensive output also helped Farr's nerves to relax. "We came out and hit the ball well," Farr said. "They made a couple of errors and we used them." The offense started early in the game after the Rebels fell behind in the first. Hays fell behind 1-0, but rallied for three runs in the bottom half of the inning off three Reagan errors. DeLeon kept the runs coming in the second with a two-run sin- gle. The Rebels added two insur- ance runs in the fourth and put the game away. Farr still sees some areas to improve before the next game despite the wide mar- gin of victory. "We need to eliminate our errors in the next game," Farr said. "We also had a couple of double plays which should have been followed through." San Antonio Marshall will be the next opponent for the Rebels. Marshall is coming off of a 27- 5A regular season championship and has been idle for the better part of two weeks. Farr, who scouted Marshall last Monday, said Marshall is a Rebelsbeat up Akins to close baseball season Staff Report AYS CISD-The season ended well for the Hays High School baseball team, which put a beating on last-pace Akins and had to quit just when it was having fun. The Rebels won, 12-1, on their home field last Friday in a game that was called in the fifth inning due to the ten-run rule. After opening the District 25-5A schedule with six consec- utive losses, the Rebels broke even in their final eight games to finish 4-10 in the district and 12-13 overall. Akins scored a run in the first against Hays starter Jeff Summers, but scored none the rest of the way. Summers ended the game with a three-hitter. After Adam Froeschl hit a two-run homer to center field in the bottom of the first inning, the Rebels never looked back. Justin Weatherford followed Froeschl with a homer and David Morales later doubled in a run, giving Hays a 4-1 lead after the first inning. The Rebels added five more runs in the fourth inning, keyed by Weatherford's two-run homer. Lawrence vaults to state track meet Staff Report AYS CISD--If Hays High School doesn't watch itself, it might pick up a reputation as a pole vaulting school. Not only did Britni Lawrence qualify for the state mack meet, as expected, but Corey Vegas finished in a height tie for the lead last Saturday at the Region IV Championships at Alamo Stadium in San Antonio. Lawrence, who holds the highest vault in Texas history for a high school girl at 12-10, fin- ished with an unusually low win- ning vault of 12-0. But the rest of .... the field went out at 11-6, so Lawrence didn't need to tax her- self. Vegas finished in a first-place tie for the lead at 14-6 with Daniel Wallace of San Antonio Reagan and Dustin Quinney of Converse Judson. However, Vegas finished third on misses, meaning he will be an alternate to the state meet. The Rebels had three other boys in the competition - Ronald Green in the 200 meters and the triple jump, Tyler Lindsey in the 00Rebel SOFTBALL HAYS 9, San Antonio Reagan 3. WP: DeLeon, 6 strikeouts.

"There aren't many of them." Bobble Lenz, who ran the races for the Buda Lions Club, said weiners entered from all over Texas and as far away as Denver. Juggy, owned by Ben Trimmer of Houston, finished second, with Buddy, owned by Heather Hargrave of Mansfield, finishing third. The Hodnetts actually bought Me for their five-year-old daughter, Kaylee. Little did any of them know they had on their hands not merely a child's pet, but a champion who will live forever in the annals of history. Heather Hodnett heard about the weaner dog races from a co-worker at the Texas Department of Housing, Grace Timmons of Manchaca. Now, the Hodnetts have made it two years in a row, and they're almost certain to make it three, just so they can defend their championship at the country fair. "It's a very well run event," Heather Hodnett said. "a nice family event." Buda Council Election, from page 1 until these criteria are adopted, it is unfair to select a new board member. "I have asked the Mayor to remove from consideration the appointment of a new EDC director until the new criteria has been adopt- ed," Chilcote said in a statement. "At that time, we should use the appoint- ment of this very important position as the first under the new rules and procedures so that all citizens have a chance to participate. "In addition, this Saturday, citi- zens will be voting on three city council positions. This constitutes a majority of the council. Win or lose, I believe those individuals should have the opportunity to appoint a [board member] they will then work with for the next two years." Mathis said there shouldn't he an issue with the current council mak- ing its final decisions. "As far as I'm concerned, the three individuals who are up for election have served the city well for the last two years," Mathis said. 'Tm confident they'll make the fight deci- sions up until the last second." Aside from possibly filling a vacancy on the EI, the council will also he acting on some proce- dures for resigning commissioners andboard members. Another con- flict could arise if Chilcote loses her seat. She would still have the power, regardless of the outcome of the election, to vote her procedures through. ine new council, once sworn in, will have its first votes counted at the May 20 council meeting. Two big items coming up on the agenda for the council will deal with new devel- opments. The May 20 meeting is the first possible meeting for council to approve the final plat for the Cullen Country development on FM 967.

"Hitter for hitter, we're fairy equal to them," Farr said. "If we're fairly disciplined, we can hit the pitcher well." Farr has the team working against Del_eon in live batting practice sessions to prepare for the Marshall pitcher's breaking pitches. Farr said her team hasn't faced enough breaking pitches, adding that it's necessary for her team get a live look at the outside pitch selection. DeLeon said she's confident her team can come out on top. The senior pitcher said, "We've just got to come out headstrong and get runs on the board before they can."
