Many of the teams and athletes gathering this weekend at the University Interscholastic Leagueâ€™s Class 3A State Track and Field Championships in Austin know they donâ€™t have a chance at winning a state title. That isnâ€™t the case for the Big Spring High School Lady Steers 4x200- and 4x400-meter relay teams.
Both have very realistic chances of walking away from the meet with gold medals.
The Howard College Lady Hawks may have seen their bid to earn a berth in the NJCAA softball World Series fall one game shy, but that didnâ€™t mean the team didnâ€™t impress on the field.
Proof the Lady Hawks were among the top squads on the field came earlier this week when six members of the Howard College squad were named to the Western Junior College Athletic Conferenceâ€™s 2014 all-conference roster. The six were among 21 WJCAC softball standouts honored with postseason awards.
The Big Spring ISD Softball Complex will serve as the host site for the Class 2A regional quarterfinal playoff game between the Colorado Lady Wolves and Abernathy on Thursday, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The college board race ballots will be available at both the junior high in Coahoma and the coliseum.
