For the first time in 23 years, Big Spring had a chance to claim at least a share of the district championship Friday at Memorial Stadium.
It wasn't the Steers' night.
District foe Monahans ended up winning the title with a 31-0 rout of Big Spring.
Hardly the end to an otherwise stellar season the Steers and Head Coach Phillip Ritchey had hoped for.
But this time around, instead of being forced to wait an entire year to for a shot redemption, BSHS only has to wait a few days, as it will be in the playoffs taking on Fabens â€” the first postseason appearance since 2009.
MIDLAND â€” Not only are the Lady Steers headed to the regional volleyball tournament, they overcame a huge obstacle by the name of Monahans to get there.
Big Spring (29-13) started off strong. Unwilling to let rival Monahans defeat them for the third time this season, the Lady Steers took the first set 25-20 and turned in an even stronger performance in the second set, winning 25-15.
