BRIDGEPORT â The Steers (5-12) met two larger schools Friday â Saginaw and Fort Worth Western Hills â and lost both outings as Big Spring dropped Game One to Saginaw 63-45 and Game Two to Western Hills 61-48.
Despite the mismatch in enrollment numbers, BSHS Head Coach Cliff
Thompson cited a lack of consistency as the reason for the losses.
âWe started off playing well against Saginaw, but then we had a terrible third quarter,â Thompson said. âWe turned the ball over four or five times and (Saginaw) scored on all of them. We just didn't play all four quarters.â
It may have taken six long years filled with skeptics and naysayers, but when the last few lights clicked on at the historic Hotel Settles during Friday night's opening ceremonies, Big Spring native Brint Ryan looked a lot like the cat who ate the canary.
Ryan â joined by his wife, five daughters and hundreds of friends, family and guests â hosted a private reception at the downtown landmark, including a lighting ceremony where onlookers got to see the hotel lit floor by floor, leading up to the large, red sign atop the building.
