Hawks soar past Plainsmen, Noatala hits walk-off grand slam

April 19, 2012

Spectators at Foundation Field not only saw a doubleheader Wednesday at which the Howard College Hawk softball squad trounced Frank Phillips College 11-3 the first game and 12-0 the second, but were also treated to a homerun display — eight to be exact — by Hawk batters including a walk-off grand slam by the NJCAA home run leader, Olive Noatala, which ended the first game in dramatic fashion.

After falling behind 2-0 to the Plainsmen early in Game One, the HC hitting engine apparently just needed to warm up a little before cranking out the runs.

April 18, 2012

Taylor Seaton is passionate about volleyball. This coming fall, she will get a chance to take that passion to the next level.

Seaton, a senior at Big Spring High School, signed a letter of intent to play volleyball at McMurry University in Abilene on Tuesday at the BSHS Athletic Training Center.

Heavily recruited by the institution, Seaton believes McMurry will be a good fit for many reasons.

“I really wanted to go to a school that has Christian values,” Seaton said. “I know that is where I am supposed to be.”

Wind whipped through Steer Park Friday and with a potential playoff spot at stake, the Big Spring Steers’ baseball squad faced off against district leader Abilene Wylie (6-1), treating fans to yet another exciting outing.
Unfortunately, the Steers were on the short end of a 2-1 ball game despite Adam Franco’s brilliant performance from the mound.
Franco recorded a loss but allowed only one Bulldog hit, striking out six batters. The hit that went through, however, was a two-run blast in the top of the fourth, propelling Wylie to a hard-fought victory.

Brownwood tops
Lady Steers
Big Spring Softball Coach John Sparks knew Brownwood would be a tough District 5-3A opponent, and he was proven right as Big Spring was on the short end of an 8-3 decision at the Big Spring ISD Softball Complex Friday.
Things got out of hand quickly for BSHS — Brownwood came out swinging, putting up five runs in the top of the first.
Errors — seven to be exact — derailed the Lady Steers.
Sparks said those miscues were the major reason the Lady Steers dropped to a 1-2 district record.
