COAHOMA â€” As Pete Acosta was trying to recall how many people have congratulated him on his selection to the 2010 Class 2A All-State Football team, another bystander shouted his name from afar, hoping to do the same.
Safe to say Coahoma is proud of what the senior has done.
Acosta was named second team all-state by the Texas Associated Press Sports Editors with three other defensive backs. He wasnâ€™t the only Bulldog on the list, either. Josh Castilaw earned honorable mention as an offensive lineman.
The Big Spring Lady Steers took care of business at home once again this season Tuesday. This time they cruised past Monahans 56-34 in Steer Gym for their 11th win of the season.
Like most games recently, this game was all about experimenting with different lineups and getting every player on the floor.
â€śWe started a different lineup, had an all junior lineup just to kind of look at that group and I thought they kind of got in there and got after it,â€ť head coach Mike Warren said. â€śAlthough, the score was close
COAHOMA â€” In a game like this, a nine-point deficit looked like it was too far out of reach for the Coahoma Bulldogettes heading into the fourth quarter.
But they didnâ€™t want to go 0-2 in district play. The fear of that happening alone sparked Coahoma in a thrilling 46-45 win over Post in District 3-2A action Tuesday in Coahoma.
The Bulldogettes were down 39-30 heading into the fourth quarter, but battled back to tie it thanks to a few baskets from Minnie Goodblanket and a clutch shot from Haley Pace with about a minute left in the game.
