SWEETWATER â€” Out to prove they're no fluke, the Steers (6-2) traveled to Mustang Bowl Friday to take on Sweetwater (3-5) â€” as well as earn their second consecutive district victory.
They did just that. Big Spring defeated the Mustangs 65-42, asserting its dominance in a district it couldn't find a way to win in for the past two seasons. But good things come to those who wait. And BSHS Head Coach Phillip Ritchey is glad the wait is over. Not only are the Steers a shoe-in for the playoffs, they could win or split the 4-3A title.

It's amazing what you can create with nothing more than a knife, a piece of a wood and the right attitude.
That's the message the Mustang Draw Woodcarvers Club will be spreading when they host their annual Show and Sale starting Monday at the Dora Roberts Community Center.
The annual event serves as both a showcase of club members' talents and a teaching experience. On one hand, the public will get a chance to view some of the finest wood carvings to be found in this area. On the other, they can try their hand at the craft themselves.
