LUBBOCK â€” The Howard College Hawks and the Western Texas College Westerners aren't exactly strangers passing in the night.
The two have met four times this year in Western Junior College Athletic Conference play, in which WTC was outscored by the Hawks 37-3.
A turnaround wasn't in the cards for the Westerners on Thursday, as they found themselves on the short end of an 8-0 ball game in the Hawks' regional championship opener.
MINERAL WELLS â€” There is no telling how deep into the playoffs the Big Spring Steers baseball squad could go this season, but if they maintain their current pace, it may be a few more weeks before the fans run out of games to attend.
BSHS Coach Bert Otto said prior to the bi-district series opener that he believed his team could compete with Iowa Park in the playoffs.
He was right.
The Steers took the first game by a score of 5-1 and will head into Game Two with the all-important momentum any coach would like when squaring off against the region's best.
