Chosen from among the members of the five honored teams of basketball, baseball, track, tennis and golf, Pink and Winkler best represented the "hard-work and dedication of Unicorn athletics," said Doug Miller of the New Braunfels Jaycees. "Each one has aimed for the best and acheived it." Other outstanding acheivers who received honorary awards were Craig Wersterfer, Pain Dunks, Rick Shultz and Debbie Galvan. Dunks was named the recipient of both the Fighting Heart — an award given to the female athlete who best represented the "never say die attitude" of New Braunfels — and the Army Reserve Scholarship Athlete award while Shultz received the scholarship for males. Galvan was given the True Blue award for "the senior girl athlete who gave her all to the team, whether we won or lost," said coach Claudia Perry. Wersterfer was honored with the Gary Simon Memorial Scholarship. Simon was an outstanding athlete who suffered a head injury during a football game ttu.t later proved to be fatal. His picture hangs in the main hall of the high school. Before the presentation of the special awards, however, each coach recognized and presented his or her team with all-district and Most Valuable Player certificates. Listed In the order of their presentation they are as follows: In girls' basketball, coach Patsy Davis praised her junior varsity for their 11-16 record and named Stevle Smith the most improved freshman while giving Sabrina Sanchez the most improved JV award. For the varsity, Teresa Thomas was named most improved and Tonya Hurd was was presented with the Most Valuable Player award. J.P. Rector was given the MVP award for golf by coach Cliff Wilklns for leading the team to nine tourney wins and a fourth place in District 13 4A.

Alan Rompel was named freshman MVP while Mike Wofford was given the honor for the junior varsity. Rodney Fischer was named Most Improved Varsity player and the 1983 varsity MVPs were Lisa Roberts and David Pfeuffer, Mueller also presented a special award to the doubles team of Janice Fikac and Jenny Clonts called the Biggest Upset Award.

I AP) — Bert Jones' pro football career had its rewardintj times und its frustrating times, and he says the most frustrating was the final year. "The biggest diasappolnUnent for me was that I was ready to help the Rams in any way I could, and I couldn't do it," the IADS Angeles quarterback said Thursday at a press conference announcing his retirement. Jones, who played nine years in Baltimore before being acquired by the Rams in the spring of 1982, suffered a neck injury last November in Just his third game with Los Angeles. "I played 10 years in the NFL and enjoyed a lot of good things," said the 31-year-old Jones, fighting back tears at times during the press conference. "TJwt'a what I'll remember ... The players, the coaches, fulfilling our goals." Jones underwent surgery last January after the Injury, % nplwrt disc, and failed to respond to treiUnent. factors told Wro prior to the recent NFl> draft that he could not play again. Rockets use 'heads' to bag Sampson NEW YORK (AP) — The Houston Rockets, who captured the Ralph Sampson sweepstakes by winning a coin flip, would rather have acquired the draft rights to college basketball's best player in a less nerve-racking manner. "It was kind of silly for grown men to be sitting around flipping a coin with the success of a franchise at stake," said Ray Patterson, president and general manager of the Rockets. Rockets owner Charlie Thomas correctly called "heads" when larry O'Brien, commissioner of the National Basketball Association, flipped a 100-year- old silver dollar in O'Brien's office. Indiana was the loser of the flip to determine who chooses first and who picks second in the NBA draft on June 28. Thomas said the Pacers would have- walked away with the third pick as well as Krista Pink but one meet this year, Jana Chafiti was named oustandlnn freshman while Most Improved wasii tie between Virginia Hildebrand and Lisa McKinnis. The Most Valuable Athlete was national record holder Kim Whitaker. •Sierra returned to the podium when boys track coach I-ow SimmomLs presented his award for tIn- most valuable freshman. Sierra was one of two athletes to participate in three spring sports (the other was Greg Bender), but was the only athlete to receive two MVi J awards. Kumly Ung was given the MVP for the JV team and David Delemos received the honor for the varsity team. Baseball coach Pete Gar/n declined presenting awards to his varsity squad saying, "It has been a tradition to wait until the season is over before doing so. Fortunately, this year the tradition is In effect nguin." The Unicorns, now 20-fi-l after defeating Alamo Heights in the bkiistrict playoff just two hours earlier, will advance in the playoffs. CJurvia did, however, award Maggie Medellin the MVP a ward for the 8-6 junior varsity team. the second, plus a player and a first-round choice next year if they had listened to his trade offer. "We tried to make a trade to avoid all this," Thomas said. "It was too many dollars to have it come down to luck." But Thomas, who took his 21-year-old daughter's advice by calling heads, had the luck on his side, something the Rockets had very little of this season when they finished 14-68, worst in the NBA, with a 36 percent drop in attendance compared to 1981-82. Thomas said having the 7-fooM Sampson, a three-time Player of the Year for the University of Virginia, would be "worth millions to the Rockets." An estimated 2,000 calls were made to the team's switchboard in Houston after the toss, with about 300 season tickets purchased Thursday. The disappointed Pacers seid they had little choice but to try to get Sampson, who is considered to be the best player coming out of college since Bill Walton in 1974. "We felt we .owed it to the fans to give them a shot at the No. 1 pick," said Pacers co-owner Herb Simon. He said he, too, would have said "heads" if Houston had not won the preliminary flip that designated who would make the official call. "If we had gotten to make the call, I feel we would have won," the disappointed Simon said. "I wish we could have gone down fighting." In calling heads, Thomas was bucking a trend that saw tails come up 12 times in the previous H years. In addition, the team calling the toss had been unsuccessful 11 of 17 times.
