April 12, 2011

Hail to the champs.

Big Spring High School claimed its first team district title of the year when the boys' golf team took first place in the Disrict 5-3A golf tournament, which concluded play Monday in Sweetwater.

Errors prove costly for Lady Steers in loss

April 12, 2011

The Big Spring Lady Steers continue to be their own worst enemy.

Seven Big Spring errors opened the floodgates for Brownwood and helped the Lady Lions waltz to a 10-0 run-rule victory over the Lady Steers in District 5-3A softball action at the Big Spring ISD Softball Complex Monday.

It wasn't as if Brownwood needed any help, either — the district champion Lady Lions suffocated Big Spring with strong pitching from Sydney Laws, who improved to 12-3 for the season, and sterling defense to improve to a perfect 6-0 in district games.

April 6, 2011

COAHOMA — The race for the third baseball playoff spot from District 3-2A can't get much tighter.

Coahoma starter Kaleb McAdams was tagged with the loss.

Forsan down Bulldogettes in softball showdown

April 6, 2011

COAHOMA — The Forsan Lady Buffaloes have a specific script for success they must follow this softball season.

Unlike the past two state championship teams, this year's squad is not packed with star power and therefore has a smaller margin of error. To succeed, their coach said, the Lady Buffs have to combine good defense with timely hitting and throw in a pinch of pitching if they are going to have any chance of duplicating their past success.
So far, so good.
