Growing numbers spark
move by Coach Jeff Guice
Boys will get new coach
The Dublin Bulls, 3rd and 4th grade boys' Pee Wee Basketball
team, recently won second place in the StephenvWe Project
Graduation tournament. Pictured are, front row, Dane Johnson,
Perry Rich, Cotoy Strokes, Tanner Dippie. Second row, Jarred
Greenway, Christopher Warner, Bradley Black. Coaches are Donna
Williams and Alex Aguilar.
Coach Jeff Guice, who has
headed the boys and girls vanity
basketball programs the past two
seasons, will be seeing a change of
assignment next season.
“It's nothing new and it's some-
thing that Fve been thinking about
for some time,’ Ouice said.
Guice will still be handling the
duties as head coach of the Lady
Lions but will relinquish his duties
as head boys coach.
This is something that started
before I got here,” Athletic Direc-
tor Jim Taylor said. T support
Coach Guice's decision and I know
he's worked hard at both jobs.”
If things go according to plan,
Guice will still be working hard as
he heads girls basketball and will
assume some of the administrative
duties involving girl's athletics.
In effect the move will put Guice
as the girls' coordinator but that is
not official, according to Superin-
tendent Roy Neff, until further
details can be worked out with the
It's also good news for female
athletes at Dublin because of the
growing numbers of athletes taking
part in sports. Currently at the high
school level, there are 42 girts in
the basketball off-season, program
and that number is expected to
grow next fall
“It's been tough but I really
enjoyed coaching botji teams,”
Guice said. T really think this is a
good move that will help all of our
No one has been named boys'
coach and that process may take
some time with either an assign-
ment out of the current staff or the
possibility of someone else taking
over the boys program.
Lions take second at De Leon baseball tournament
Dublin's baseball program con-
tinues to florish with a second
place finish at the De Leon tourna-
ment over the weekend. v
The Lions dropped the title con-
test 12-2 to Eastland after they ran
out of experienced pitching but
that didn't overshadow a 9-7 win
against De Leon's junior varsity
and a 16-6 stomping of favored
"We played some pretty good
baseball'' Coach Doug Shanafelt
said. "It's a real test for your team
when you get into a tournament. It
will help us this week in Ranger."
Dublin has a 11: IS a.m. date
with Ranger today and will face
either Gorman or Cisco in a second
round game Friday.
The tournament will be a good
test for the Lions first-year pro-
gram who will see district oppo-
nents De Leon. Ranger and Cisco
Dublin dropped a 7-6 contest
against Cross Plains Tuesday night
but had their chances late in the
"We probably could have gotten
away with a win but I was worried
about the Ranger tournament,"
Junior Mata, a freshmen with a
no-hitter to his credit this season,
pitched the first three innings and
produced hit less baseball but was
pulled to prevent him from tiring.
Dublin had a 3-0 lead after the
first inning of play with runs
scored by J.R. Sharp. Jeremy Jen-
nings and Jacob Dunson. Dunson
had a big evening with a three -
of-four performance at the plate
while Mata, Adrian Saldivar and
Brandon Black each collected two
hits in the contest.
In the De Leon tournament,
Mata and Dunson were named to
the all-toumament team for their
play in three games.
Tm pleased with the improve-
ment that Tm seeing,” Shanafelt
said. "The guys have been working
hard on their individual skills and
are coming together as a team."
Amy Thiebaud takes double gold at Coleman relays
Coach Bobby Phillips has a
loaded junior varsity but is only
dealing With six to eight athletes at
the varsity level as Dublin fields a
young track and field team this
r\ "Depending on the nttSW, Will
have about six and maybe as many
as eight on the varsity level"
Those varsity athletes include
distance runner Jack Harper,
sprinters Aaron Locke, Ramiro
Olvera, Kolin Howell and J.R.
Sharp, hurdlers Adrain Saldivar
and Brian Hightower while Justin
Huckabee should see time in the
; "We’ve got Aaron Locke in after
'powerlifting and that will give us a
boost," Phillips said. "Jack Harper
is turning in good times and posted
■a career best in the 3200-meters."
' Harper, a sophomore, is already
a seasoned veteran and posted a
11:36 at the Early meet for a 6th
"We're young but were getting
better everyday. The kids show up
and they put in good workouts for
usf.” Phlffip* Said «
The Dublin Lady Lions track
and field team kept busy over the
spring break with a strong showing
against mainly 3-A teams at the
Coleman Blue Cat relays.
Senior Amy Thiebaud blazed to
first place finishes in the 100-meter
dash and the 100-hurdles. Thie-
baud’s 16.47 clocking in the
hurdles was her fastest time this
season and her 13.62 mark in the,
100-meter dash proves she can be
"Amy ran really well and she cut
some time off the hurdles," Coach
Karen Hickman said.
While Thiebaud was enjoying
her success, distance runner Adri-
ana Osomio was busy mining for
silver with a pair of second place
finishes in the 1600 and 3200-
"It's still early but you can see
the girls are ready to turn the
comer," Hickman said.
