HUTCHINSON, Kan. â€” The Howard College menâ€™s basketball team had never seen a crowd like they did Tuesday at the National Junior College Athletic Association championship tournament as they were tasked with facing the hometown team â€” Hutchinson Community College (31-2) â€” which was in the national tourney for the first time since 1997.
But, the Hawks have some big time players who made some big time baskets down the stretch to take a commanding lead they wouldnâ€™t relinquish and removed the Blue Dragons from the bracket with a 92-69 win.
It was a tight game for 30 minutes.
SNYDER â€” Big Spring Head Baseball Coach Bert Ottoâ€™s team is off to another good start.
Using a little small ball, patience and luck, the Steers won their district opener on the road against Snyder by a score of 2-0.
Both teamsâ€™ bats were quiet to start off, when in the top of the fourth inning, Haegan Rodriguez led off with a stand-up triple.
Gunnar Kennedy then hit a ball hard to the Tigersâ€™ short stop who committed a throwing error, allowing Rodriguez to cross home plate and Kennedy to advance to second base.
SNYDER â€” District play has been full of ups and downs for Big Spring â€” and itâ€™s only the first week.
After a 12-2 run-rule victory over Wylie to kick off 4-3A action, the Lady Steers lost by the same score to Snyder on Tuesday, also in run-rule fashion.
â€śThey did to us exactly what we did to Wylie,â€ť BSHS Head Coach John Sparks said.
