Sarah Stinnett has rebounded plenty of basketballs during the season for the Howard College Lady Hawks. None, however, were quite as important as the one she grabbed with 1:19 left in overtime on Thursday night in front of a large crowd in the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum.

The Big Spring High School Steers placed four players on the 63rd Annual Collin Street Bakery/Texas Sports Writers Associationâ€™s Class 3A All-State Football Team, which was released this morning.

Following the Howard College Hawksâ€™ practice session on Wednesday, head coach Scott Raines didnâ€™t act like a coach whose team had won 20 games and was fighting for a berth in the Western Junior College Athletic Conference.

After that, head coach Gary Huckabee said his team isnâ€™t really sure about much else.

PECOS â€“ Head coach Mike Warren knew the Big Spring Lady Steers needed to find a way to get the Fabens Lady Wildcats to abandon their zone defense early on Tuesday evening as he sat in the Eaglesâ€™ Nest at Pecos High School. He just needed something to happen that would force Fabens to spread out their defense a little so his team could use its size and athletic ability in the post.
Julianna Rodriguez was the answer.
