Parker Ks 13, Forsan defeats Roosevelt

March 28, 2012

FORSAN — The number 13 was lucky for the Buffaloes’ baseball squad Tuesday, as that was the number of Lubbock Roosevelt players that pitcher Payton Parker struck out during a dominating performance from the mound.

Parker kept the Buffaloes’ hopes for a win alive throughout a tight game until his team was able to rally in the bottom of the sixth inning, defeating the Eagles 6-2.

The win places Forsan alone in first place in District 3-2A with a 5-0 league mark.

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.

Gomez signs letter of intent

March 23, 2012

When life as an athlete throws you a curveball, you have two options: take the strike, or hit it out of the park.

The latter tactic was chosen by Mai Gomez, a former Big Spring High School softball and volleyball player who suffered a series of ankle injuries which put her sports career on the sidelines, but opened up a new, potential career.

Gomez, a senior this year at BSHS, signed her letter of intent Thursday to attend Howard College on a full scholarship, majoring in what she knows best — sports medicine.

Roberts, a senior, will compete in the super heavyweight class, and will try to set a new personal record — 650 pounds — in his best event, the dead lift.

Lady Steers fall to Snyder

March 21, 2012

SNYDER — The Big Spring Lady Steers, who opened District 5-3A softball play last Friday with a win over Sweetwater, didn't fare as well on the road Tuesday, as Big Spring dropped to a 1-1 district record following a 3-1 loss to rival Snyder on the road.

What went wrong for BSHS?

According to Coach John Sparks, it all came down to mental discipline at the plate.

“It was a defensive game,” he said. “We made three errors, which put people on base. Then, (Snyder) manufactured the runs.”

Steers stage comeback in district opener against Snyder

March 21, 2012

SNYDER — Don't count out Big Spring in District 5-3A baseball this season.

Even though Snyder racked up nine runs in the first four innings of play, the Steers kept their collective cool Tuesday, bringing home a 12-10 win thanks to quality relief pitching and an offense that came to life in the later innings.

The Steers took the early lead, scoring two runs in the top of the first inning, but Snyder responded quickly, scoring nine runs over the course of three innings of play to put Big Spring in a substantial hole.
