On the court, the Howard College Lady Hawks were one of the youngest teams in the Western Junior College Athletic Conference this past season, and it showed as the team struggled to find ways to win games. Despite their youthfulness, the one thing no one ever questioned was the Lady Hawksâ€™ athletic ability.
J.T. Breyman and J.P. Stevenson made sure their tennis seasons didnâ€™t come to a premature end this past weekend. The Forsan standouts punched their ticket to the Class A state tennis tournament by pounding out an impressive outing at the Region I-1A Tennis Championships on Thursday at South Plains College.
The members of the Big Spring High School boysâ€™ and girlsâ€™ track and field teams will begin their attempts at qualifying for the state track meet on Friday morning when the 2014 Region I-3A Track and Field Championships get under way.
On the track, Charles Green sprinted down the course at Rotary Field on Thursday with more than enough speed to cross the finish line in first place. On paper, however, he didnâ€™t fair quite as well as District 3-4A Area Track and Field Championships.
A scorerâ€™s mistake left Green listed as the seventh-place finisher in the 100-meter hurdles â€“ and a long way from qualifying for the Region I-3A Track and Field Championships.
In the end, not even being seventh on a piece of paper could stop the BSHS senior from making his second straight trip to the regional meet.

PECOS â€“ The Big Spring High School Lady Steers relay teams expected tougher races this week as they headed in to the District 3-4 3A Area Track and Field Championships. The teams advancing are supposed to be tougher, right?
A challenge in any of the three relay events never came Thursday at Rotary Field.
PECOS - Ryan Lopez never got in too big of a hurry during the first lap of the boysâ€™ 800-meter run on Thursday at the District 2-4 Area Track and Field Championships at Rotary Field. He was perfectly content to let the other seven runners in the field set the pace for the first 500 meters of the race.
It was the last 300 that concerned him most.
