CLARENDON â€” The Lady Hawks came away with a 66-50 road win against Clarendon College in what Head Coach Earl referred to as â€śa pivotal gameâ€ť.
â€śI was really impressed with the way we came out and played,â€ť Diddle said of his squad's performance. â€śThey played well defensively and really had no mental lapses even though Clarendon is a tough team to play against. They are very unorthodox.â€ť
HC led the Lady Bulldogs by 12 at the halfway mark, who pulled within eight in the second half of play, but couldn't complete the rally and fell short in the final minutes of play.
A Big Spring man was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery and criminal mischief Thursday after a bizarre turn of events at the local Wagon Wheel restaurant.

FORSAN â€“ There's always something.
As they have worked their way toward calling for a bond election to finance a new elementary school, Forsan Independent School District officials have tried to balance what they want with what they think the district's taxpayers can afford.
So, you can imagine their reaction when they learned the price tag might be boosted by a couple million dollars.
The culprit? Wastewater.
