Lady Steers sending quality, quantity to regional track meet

April 29, 2011

Big Spring High School girls' track coach Nick Roberson believes a window of opportunity is opening for his team.

The Lady Steers will send 10 athletes to the Region I-3A track meet, which starts Monday in Lubbock, and Roberson believes that large number is but a harbinger of things to come for the program.

Seniors Desiree Anderson and Chanvel Cuviello, juniors April Turner, Cerbi Ritchey and Bridgette Tuitt, sophomores Bianca Ryle and Jaycee Williams and freshmen Morgan Seaton, Donisha McGree and Dyrshae Vandervilt will represent BSHS at the regional meet.

Young Lady Buffs ready for regionals

April 29, 2011

FORSAN — Robert Hillger is hoping youth will be served at next week's Region I-2A track meet.

That's because Hillger, the girls' track coach at Forsan High School, will send a team dominated by freshmen — five of the eight team members who qualified for regionals are freshmen.

But just because the team is younger doesn't mean it isn't ready to compete at a high level.

“The quality here is much deeper than I've ever had,” said Hillger, who is in his sixth year at the helm of the program. “We don't have a few athletes who contribute — they're all pretty good.”

COLORADO CITY — New year, new classification, same postseason hopes for the Forsan Buffaloes.

The Buffaloes clinched a spot in the Class 2A state high school baseball playoffs with a 12-5 victory over Colorado City Monday afternoon.

Forsan came into the game needing a win to hold off Coahoma for the final District 3-2A playoff spot. A loss to C-City would have dropped the Buffs into a tie with Coahoma and forced a one-game playoff between the teams.

After a 12-year drought, a Howard College cowgirl will be representing the school at the College National Finals rodeo.

Hawk barrel racer Kaci Smith became the first Howard cowgirl to claim a spot in the CNFR since 1999, when Kim Green brought home the Reserve National Champion award in barrel racing.

“Kaci is doing what Kaci does best right now,” said Greg Kernick, Howard College rodeo coach. “She’s done a great job throughout the entire season and has peaked at just the right time.”
