Garden City-Throckmorton clash in state title game

December 10, 2010

GARDEN CITY — Garden City head coach Vance Jones remembers the last time his Bearkats lost vividly.

It was to Throckmorton in the beginning of the 2009 season and Jones remembers his players naturally being upset.

More good than harm came from that loss, though.

“That loss was probably our motivation to work harder to get to play them again,” Jones said. “After the game, they said ‘Coach, we can beat them.’ They worked hard and that was the driving engine that helped us get to that point and once we beat them, we said ‘Hey, maybe we have a shot to go all the way.”

Angel Tree gifts fall far short

December 9, 2010

Officials with the Big Spring Salvation Army say donations to the local charity's annual Angel Tree program are trickling in at an alarmingly slow rate with just days before the holiday effort meets its deadline.

Bessie Flores, newly appointed social worker for the Salvation Army — taking over for longtime social worker Paula Lafler, who has been sidelined with health problems — said the lack of Christmas gifts donated for the annual effort has her very concerned.

Leading the charge: Adams’ strong start driving force for Steers this season

December 9, 2010

Big Spring guard Luke Adams wasn’t fully aware how big his performance against Odessa Permian was on Nov. 19. Forty-two points was far from where he thought he finished.

“I really didn’t,” the senior said. “That’s the crazy thing about it. I didn’t even know how many. I probably thought I had 20, maybe 25.
“I guess when you’re playing to win, you don’t really care about points. You just care what’s on that scoreboard.”

Maybe it’s that mindset that has opponents taking notice of Adams.
