Christmas For Our Troops deadline nearing

November 15, 2010

Area residents hoping to spread a little Christmas cheer to U.S. military service personnel serving overseas have a little more than two weeks left to donate to Christmas For Our Troops Inc.

Debbie Burrow, local director for the drive, said local response has been good to date and that volunteers will be soliciting gifts and monetary donations through Dec. 1.

The inspiration for the drive is simple, she said — the desire to let troops serving in combat zones that the folks back home haven't forgotten them.

Girls basketball: Lady Steers cruise past Cooper 45-35

November 15, 2010

All the Big Spring Lady Steers needed was a spark to fend off Abilene Cooper in a 45-35 win Saturday in Steer Gym.

The Lady Steers’ mishaps and turnovers prevented them from gaining a substantial lead over Cooper, but they were in a tied game 24-24 as the third quarter was coming to an end.

That spark they needed came in the form of a 10-2 run, thanks to clutch shooting from Cerbi Ritchey, Valerie Ross and Mackenzie Stone.

All the pieces started fitting together for that to happen, too. Jason Martinez punched the ball in for a score to cut the Lynx lead to 13, Coahoma’s defense forced a three-and-out on the next drive and suddenly, the Bulldogs were driving down the field for a second score.

Fulton leads Stanton past Abernathy

November 13, 2010

SEMINOLE — Stanton is known for defense and physical play in the trenches.

The Buffaloes still had that in their 30-6 win over Abernathy Friday in Seminole in bi-district playoff action. They just had the passing to go along with it.

“We didn’t know what to expect in a first-round playoff game,” Stanton head coach John Peterson said. “Everybody’s hungry to stay in the playoffs. Abernathy did a great job of trying to take away our run, so we adjusted a little bit, started throwing the ball.”

Backed by a 48-22 run in the second half, Sands rallied to claim a wild 72-60 victory over the...
