Hawks open baseball season with doubleheader sweep

February 3, 2012

Heading into Thursday's season opener, Britt Smith was counting on pitching to be a strength for the Howard College baseball team.

So far, so good.

Five Howard pitchers combined to surrender only one earned run as the Hawks opened their season with a 7-4, 10-0 doubleheader sweep of Frank Phillips College at Jack Barber Field Thursday afternoon.

Howard has split decision vs. NMJC

February 3, 2012

Mark Adams has long been an advocate of defense first in basketball, but even he approved of the offensive fireworks the Howard College Hawks set off inside Garrett Coliseum Thursday night.

A scorching first half paved the way for Howard to take a 71-54 win over New Mexico Junior College in Western Junior College Athletic Conference men's basketball action Thursday night.

The win improved the Hawks to 15-5 overall and 4-2 in WJCAC play, while NMJC dropped to 15-6, 3-3.
