December 11, 2013

Boys
BIG SPRING — After a hard-fought matchup, Big Spring fell to Lubbock Monterey 65-59 Tuesday at Steer Gym.

Though it was a loss, BSHS Head Coach Ian Ritchey thought his squad turned in a strong performance.

“I thought we played much better against a very good team from a bigger school,” he said. “It was only our second game with our whole team and we’re starting to gel and show many signs of good things to come.”

Leading the Steers were Matt Yanez with 13 points, Tavaris Walker with 12 and Tyler Wigington with 11.

Next up for Big Spring will be a tournament in Andrews.

November 23, 2013

ODESSA — Within the storied confines of Ratliff Stadium, Big Spring (9-3) engaged in its second shootout with Andrews (5-7) this season, but this time, it was the Steers who did most of the shooting.

Despite the less than desirable field conditions and freezing weather, BSHS routed the rival Mustangs 56-7, bringing its two-game postseason point total to 117 — and counting.

Junior running back Hunter Hill scored four times, bringing his touchdown total to nine against AHS in two outings.

November 23, 2013

GARLAND — Big Spring’s hopes of a state title were rudely ended Friday at the Curtis Cullwell Center as the Lady Steer’s historic season came to a close in the state semifinal round.

Big Spring ran into a team with too many weapons and the result was a  25-12, 25-22, 25-10 loss to the Decatur Eagles.

It’s the first trip to the state tournament for the 40-7 Eagles and they made the most of their initial semifinal appearance.

November 18, 2013

SNYDER — Big Spring is headed to the state championship tournament.

The Lady Steers (31-13) may as well have been playing a home game Saturday against District 4-3A nemesis Abilene Wylie, as the crowd was very Big Spring-centric. And quite loud.

Steers win bi-district championship with rout of Fabens

November 16, 2013

PECOS — In a display of sheer domination, Big Spring (8-3) defeated Fabens (4-7) 61-21 at Eagle Stadium Friday, earning the bi-district championship for the first time since 2009.

There were no pivotal moments which served as turning points in momentum — the Steers simply dominated in all phases of the game from the opening kickoff, amassing more than 650 yards of total offense while keeping the Wildcats stymied with smothering defense.
