The way Valerie Goodblanket sees it, both she and the Howard College Lady Hawks got a good deal on Wednesday. She got to stay close to her roots, and the Lady Hawks got a good player.
Goodblanket officially signed on the dotted line on Wednesday afternoon, agreeing to play next season with the Lady Hawksâ€™ softball program. The Big Spring High School senior signed her Letter of Intent in a special ceremony in front of her family and friends in the BSHS foyer.
The Howard College Hawks have become accustomed to being ranked among the best in junior college baseball. Well, they should feel right at home this season.
Howard College menâ€™s head basketball coach Scott Raines can look at the Western Junior College Athletic Conference standings and see the Midland College Chaparrals are a .500 team for the year.
What he doesnâ€™t see is a team that will come into the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum and roll over. In fact, he figures heâ€™ll see something quite different.
