Buffaloes rout Post, 11-1

March 14, 2012

FORSAN — It was all too much for the Post Antelopes.

The combination of several hot Forsan bats and a no-hitter pitched by Foster Burnett turned out to be too much for Post to overcome as the Buffaloes took an 11-1 run-rule victory in District 3-2A action Tuesday afternoon.

The Buffs made life difficult for Post from the very start, grabbing the lead in the first inning.

Patrick Robles was the first Buffalo to reach base after smacking a double in his first at-bat. Burchett drew a walk, and was driven in by Blaise Coffman in the bottom of the first.

Ali Knight, who also pitched for the entirety of the game; began the onslaught by belting a double, and following suit was Kayla Tilley, who drove in Knight to score the first run for Forsan. Jahnia Willard and Shelby Roemer also drove in runs, making the score 4-3 at the end of the first inning.

HC softball takes 1 of 2 vs. Clarendon

March 12, 2012

The Howard College softball team showed some rust from a long layoff in the first game of its doubleheader with Clarendon College Sunday, but rebounded in the nightcap to earn a split in the Western Junior College Athletic Conference opener for both teams Sunday afternoon.

Clarendon took the first game, 13-7, but Howard came back to take the second game by a 15-5 score.

The Hawks improved their record to 18-8 overall.

In the opener, Clarendon took advantage of ineffective Howard pitching to take the win.

Unfortunately for Howard College, the South Plains College Texans could do a little bit more.

Behind an outstanding shooting performance from guard Marshall Henderson, the Texans rallied from a first half deficit to claim the Region V title with an 84-74 victory at Lubbock Christian University's Rip Griffin Center.

Hawks open Region V with win

March 9, 2012

LUBBOCK – Hard work apparently pays off.

The Howard College Hawks spent much of the week leading up to the Region V junior college basketball tournament fine-tuning their defense and the results of all that preparation were on display Thursday at Lubbock Christian University's Rip Griffin Center.

The Hawks delivered a stunning defensive performance in the first half of their tournament opener and that was more than enough to secure them an 85-57 victory over Weatherford College.

Steers slam Monahans

March 9, 2012

The weather was cold, but the Big Spring Steers' bats were hot.

The Steers proved to be ungracious hosts Thursday night, downing Monahans, 15-5, to cap first day play at the Big Spring Varsity Baseball Tournament.

The Steers spotted Monahans a 2-0 lead after the top of the second, but stormed back with seven runs in their half of the inning and never looked back from there.

BSHS Head Coach Burt Otto said his team did a good job shaking off temperatures that hovered around freezing Thursday night.
