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.
Could this be the year of the Steer?
Coach Bert Otto and his baseball squad believe it is as they ready themselves for Game One of a three-game series in postseason play against Iowa Park today in Mineral Wells.
SEMINOLE â€” The rain held off and the wind picked up just enough to cool the crowd who traveled to see the Coahoma Bulldogettes on Monday in their bi-district matchup against the Ladyjackets of Kemit.
Coahoma â€” who entered the postseason as the third District 3-2A seed â€” found themselves trailing 2-1 in the bottom of the third when Bree Hilario bunted and reached safely after Kermit's first basemen bobbled the ball. Laurel Nix hit a one-out single that scored Hilario, who had stolen second and third base, tying the game at 2-all.
