After going 3-1 in the Fredricksburg tournament, Big Spring boys basketball coach Cliff Thompson believes heâ€™s watching his team learn from the mistakes it made at the beginning of the season.
Thatâ€™s good news, too, considering district play is about two weeks away.
â€śThe first part of the season was up and down, but weâ€™re kind of on a roll now,â€ť Thompson said. â€śI think weâ€™ve been improving all year.â€ť
The Steers took care of Randolph 62-32, lost to St. Andrews 61-56, beat Rouse 65-55 and defeated Ingram 68-39 in the Fredricksburg tournament to move to 13-6 on the season.
The Garden City Bearkats were led by Josh Coulnga and Brett Chudej all season during their run to a second consecutive state championship.
So, it seems right the two swept the district's Offensive and Defensive MVP awards.
With the Six-Man Division I District 7 football honors being released, Coulnga was named Offensive MVP and Chudej, who regularly made plays at linebacker, was named the district's Defensive MVP.
The Bearkats had 13 players earn honors. Chudej, Reggie Halfmann, Ruben Mier and Brian Hirt earned multiple honors.
