Fight mars HC-Midland showdown

February 17, 2012

One of the most storied rivalries in the Western Junior College Athletic Conference added an ugly chapter Thursday night.

Howard College defeated Midland College, 74-65, in a men's basketball matchup at Garrett Coliseum, but all anyone will remember about the game is a bench-clearing brawl that marred its final moments and resulted in several player ejections, at least two suspensions and MC having to finish the game with only four players on the court.

The CGA at 40: Still swinging

February 16, 2012

Five guys with a love for golf and the desire to help the community ended up creating a legacy that’s still making waves 40 years later.

Jimmy Marin, Gilbert Reyna, Nativade Nunez, Charlie Gonazles and Albert Gonzales all had a love for golf and the desire to help the community. Marin, the last one left of the Fab Five, is enjoying watching a legacy leave its mark.

Marin started playing golf in 1966 and a little more than 10 years later, he was part of something that would end up being bigger than he or any of the others could imagine — the Big Spring Chicano Golf Association.

Late shot lifts Hawks to win

February 14, 2012

ROSWELL, N.M. — Remember that old sports cliché about “throwing the records out the window when these two teams meet?” Apply it to just about any Howard College-New Mexico Military Institute basketball game.

The Hawks and NMMI entered Monday night's Western Junior College Athletic Conference matchup at opposite ends of the conference spectrum — Howard was firmly in second place, while the Broncos were ensconced in the WJCAC cellar.

So, of course, the game wasn't decided until the final moments.
