Grady boys are lone area team in regional round of playoffs

February 27, 2013

SEMINOLE — And then there was one. No. 8 Grady rolled past Ropes in a Class A, Division II regional quarterfinal playoff round Tuesday, routing the Eagles 72-38 using a balanced offensive attack and aggressive defense.

With the win, the Wildcats (25-6) advanced to the regional semifinal, where they will meet the winner of the Whitharral-Nazareth game which is being held today due to a weather postponement.

Trio of Lady Steers named to All-District

February 25, 2013

Three Lady Steers — senior Logan Yarbar (First Team), junior Dyrshae Vanderbilt and sophomore Julianna Rodriguez (Second Team) — were selected to represent Big Spring by being named to the All-District squad for their work on the basketball court this season.

The Lady Steers had an overall record of 16-16 and finished at .500 in a competitive division, but fell just short of a postseason appearance after losing to Sweetwater in a game to determine the third and final playoff seed.

Four area teams advance, two eliminated from postseason

February 23, 2013

BOYS

MONAHANS — Forsan Head Coach Gary Huckabee watched as his team's season came to a close Friday at the Jerry Larned Sports Complex, falling to El Paso Harmony 78-56.

The Buffaloes started the area playoff game strong, topping the Tigers 18-14 in the first period, but a sixteen point deficit in the second quarter was too much for Forsan to overcome.

Kade Fannin put up 15 points and had 16 rebounds, while Aric Hernandez and Tyler Evans each added 11 for the Buffs, who were outscored 44-21 in the middle quarters.

Garden City routs Hermleigh 75-41

February 21, 2013

Garden City cruised past Hermleigh on Tuesday, 75-41 in an area playoff match at the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum, but the score doesn't accurately reflect just how hard the Cardinals fought.

The Bearkats had their hands full against a very physical Hermleigh team who played with a lot of heart, but couldn't keep up with state-ranked GCHS, who began pulling away late in the first period.

Corbin Davis scored 26 points for the Bearkats, while Sam Miller added 16, Juan Bustos put up 14 and Austin Odom had 10 for Garden City.

Avery's late 3 lifts Grady past Borden County

February 21, 2013

SEMINOLE — It was a tight game from the opening buzzer between Grady and Borden County on Tuesday, but a late three-pointer by Ellyn Avery lifted the Lady Wildcats past the Lady Coyotes, 58-55.

Tied at the half, Grady outscored Borden County 13-9 in the third quarter, but the Lady Coyotes rallied back in the fourth. Avery sank the game-winning basket — a 25 footer — with only six seconds left on the clock. Borden County managed to get off a shot, but Grady got the rebound as time expired.

Forsan

ROBERT LEE — Forsan (24-9) outscored area playoff opponent Christoval in three-of-four quarters Friday as it came home the 43-32 victor after pulling away from the Lady Cougars in the second half of play.

Brittney Hergert shot a game-high 17 points for the Lady Buffaloes. Raegan Haggard put up 11 and Mary-Ashley McDaniel and Ali Knight each accounted for six.

Defense — once again — was the key to win, according to FHS Head Coach Lindsey Schmidt.

Hawk men, women avenge losses against South Plains College

February 11, 2013

Backed into a corner. That's how Howard College Head Coach Earl Diddle described the Lady Hawks, who have struggled to establish dominance since Western Junior College Athletic Conference play began.

However, on Saturday, HC may have found their rhythm against one of the best team in the conference, defeating South Plains College 54-52 in gritty fashion.

“I'm really proud of the way they came back,” Diddle said. “They did a great job defensively, they rebounded the ball — their spirit in the second half was really good.”

Forsan's Horton, Roman sign with Arlington Baptist College

February 9, 2013

FORSAN — A pair of Forsan student-athletes — P.J. Horton and Brendan Roman — signed letters of intent to attend Arlington Baptist College on Friday. Roman will be on the private, four-year school's track and field squad, while Horton plans to run track and cross country.

Both seniors are excited to take their athletic ability to the collegiate level.

“I chose Arlington Baptist because they told me I would run. I won't have to redshirt. I will be running my freshmen year and the coaches told me if I'm in the top seven on the team, I will go to nationals.”

Big Spring

Boys

A few weeks ago, not too many people expected much out of the Steers, who seemed befuddled on the court from the start of District 4-3A, which they opened with four straight losses.

But Head Coach Cliff Thompson insisted it was just a phase his squad was going through while they found their identity.
Apparently, they found it.

Big Spring has won four of their last six games, including a thrilling win over Greenwood last week and Friday's season-ending, 74-54 rout of Sweewater.
