Big Spring golfers to tee off at state tourney in Austin

April 26, 2012

Big Spring High School's 21-year drought is over. That's how long it has been since a BSHS golf squad has made an appearance at the state golf tournament.

The Jimmy Clay Golf Course — one of the toughest in the state — in Austin awaits the team. As well as the top high school golfers in the state.

But if you ask Coach Chris Joslin, he would tell you that this is a special year on the links for the Steers golfers.

“All of the kids played really well all year,” Joslin said. It's an exciting time for Big Spring. We feel like all five guys are going to compete.”

Howard Hawk Noatala leads nation in JUCO homers

April 19, 2012

What wears red and black, leads the nation in home runs and can strike out three opposing batters in a row? If you are a fan of Howard College softball, you would know the answer is Olive Noatala.

Noatala, a sophomore at Howard College is leading the nation (yes, the nation), in National Junior College Athletic Association play with 26 dingers.

Three of them were hit Wednesday during a doubleheader at Foundation Field against Frank Phillips College. Noatala also produced nine RBIs on the day bringing her total for the season to 74 — also on the nation’s leaderboard.

Hawks soar past Plainsmen, Noatala hits walk-off grand slam

April 19, 2012

Spectators at Foundation Field not only saw a doubleheader Wednesday at which the Howard College Hawk softball squad trounced Frank Phillips College 11-3 the first game and 12-0 the second, but were also treated to a homerun display — eight to be exact — by Hawk batters including a walk-off grand slam by the NJCAA home run leader, Olive Noatala, which ended the first game in dramatic fashion.

After falling behind 2-0 to the Plainsmen early in Game One, the HC hitting engine apparently just needed to warm up a little before cranking out the runs.

Seaton, a senior at Big Spring High School, signed a letter of intent to play volleyball at McMurry University in Abilene on Tuesday at the BSHS Athletic Training Center.

Heavily recruited by the institution, Seaton believes McMurry will be a good fit for many reasons.
