Transcript Houston is host to numerous athletic victories Alberto Houston is well on its way to becoming one of the countrys leading sports centers. Whether it is little league baseball or the WNBA some of the countrys most notable sports athletes not only come from Houston, but play for Houston teams. One source for Houston pride is the Houston Comets of the WNBA. In 2000, the Comets won their fourth consecutive championship. They are the only champions in the history of the WNBA. Houston also received bragging rights when a group of twelve year olds conquered the game of baseball and made it all the way to the 54th Little League World Series. The Bellaire Little League team is the first Houston-area team to go to the World Series since Springs Northwest 45 Little League All-Stars in '95. The Bellaire team received a 3-2 loss to Venezuela in the championship game. Even though they lost the championship, Houston still affectionately referred to the young boys as "Hometown Heroes" The spotlight was also placed on individual athletes that reside in Houston. One of the biggest victories this year was at the 2000 Olympics when Laura Wilkinson of the Woodlands won the gold metal in the individual womens platform competition. Not only did Wilkinson have stiff competition from other divers around the world, Mayor Lee Brown looks on as Comets guard Cynthia Cooper waves to the crowd at the Comets victory parade in downtown Houston. Photo by Will Cordray she also was competing on a foot that was broken in three places and had still not healed completely. The University of Houston received a notable athletic figure when two time Olympian Leroy Burrell became the univer- sitys head coach on June 17, 1998. Burrell had a long career as a sprinter and in the long jump. He held the record in the 100 meters twice and ranked as the top 100 meter runner in the world in both 1990 and 1991. As head coach of the UH track and field team, he has lead the team to two consecutive Conference USA track and field championships. Senior creative writing major Ed De La Garza thinks athletes like Burrell represent Houston well. "These people help put the University and Houston on the map!' Garza said. "It goes to show that Houston doesn't need to take a back seat to cities like New York and Los Angeles." Business tycoon Bob McNair is not a notable athlete but he is a hero to a lot of Houstonians when he brought Houston its next football team, the Houston Texans. With a number of championships under its belt and a handful of notable athletes, Houston is quickly earning a name for itself in the world of sports. 2661 Community HOO The Bellaire Little League team waves to the crowd during the Thanksgiving Day parade.
