LUBBOCK â€” Thirty degrees with 30 miles an hour wind gusts. That's what the Big Spring boys golf team is facing today as they wrap up the regional tournament at Shadow Hills Golf Course in Lubbock.
The Steers shot a good round yesterday and at press time, are sitting in second place with a score of 309 â€” one stroke ahead of rival Abilene Wylie and 12 strokes behind No. 1 Andrews.
â€śI'm proud of our kids,â€ť Joslin said of Wednesday's performance. â€śIt was really tough, the wind was blowing hard. We wanted to put ourselves in position to get a top three finish finish and we did that.â€ť
GREENWOOD â€” Big Spring baseball was also on the receiving end of a loss on the road Tuesday, as the Rangers held on for a 5-2 win over the Steers, throwing a monkey wrench in Head Coach Bert Otto's plan to nab the No. 2 seed out of District 4-3A, which is more desirable than a No. 3 spot due to the strength of potential opponents.
In the top of the first inning, Karsten Knudson and Haegan Rodriguez led off the game with back-to-back singles, then Knudson scored a run on a sacrifice fly by Gunnar Kennedy to put the Steers up 1-0.
More often than not, when you give up 10 runs in a baseball game it's bad news, but that wasn't the case for Howard College on Tuesday. The Hawks were smacking the ball around and won 16-10, with sophomore Reed Seeley belting a grand slam to help key the win.
Howard also got a little â€” OK, a lot â€” of help from mistakes on the part of the Westerners, who recorded six errors in the high-scoring affair.
