Lady Steers oust Snyder for first district win

January 22, 2011

Apparently, the Big Spring Lady Steers made up their minds in practice Wednesday they weren’t going to fall to 0-4 in District 5-3A play.

Whatever was said then, it definitely gave Big Spring a much-needed spark as the Lady Steers upended Snyder 59-53 Friday in Steer Gym.

“We were just determined,” BSHS center Cerbi Ritchey said. “In practice on Wednesday, we decided ‘Hey, we’re tired of this and this isn’t our team. So we’re going to practice hard and we’re going to play hard.’ So we did. We played like we practiced this week and it really paid off.”

Hawks Announce Record Adjustment

January 21, 2011

Howard College athletic director Britt Smith has announced the forfeit of two men's basketball games because the Hawks inadvertently played an ineligible player in the Mesa Shootout over the winter break.

The forfeits change the Hawks' overall record from 15-3 to 13-5. They are 3-1 in conference play in the western zone of Region 5.

"The player's eligibility has since been re-established and he has returned to the team. The eligibility issue was a communication error within the athletic department and the student athlete was not at fault," Smith said.
