Big Spring High School Softball Coach John Sparks got a first look at his full-strength squad Monday night, and liked most of what he saw.
For sure, he enjoyed the outcome.
Terra Keeney stroked a RBI double with two outs in the eighth inning to give Big Spring a 7-6 victory over Coahoma in non-district action Monday at the Lady Steer Softball Complex.
Considering it was a matchup of Howard County teams, perhaps it was only fitting that this one would play out like it did, with both teams rallying from deficits while displaying a flair for the dramatic.
ODESSA â€” The Howard College men's basketball team apparently decided it had had enough last-minute drama for now.
The Hawks, who came into Monday's Western Junior College Athletic Conference game with Odessa fresh off two nail-biting wins, watched the Wranglers rally to take the lead with seven minutes remaining.
Rather than watch this game go down to the wire, however, the Hawks responded with a closing run that gave them a somewhat comfortable 69-59 victory at the OC Sports Center.
