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.

Sands, Grady vie for state berth

March 3, 2012

The Sands Mustangs and Grady Wildcats have played plenty of big games over the years, but none will be bigger than Saturday's basketball contest between the two schools.

Hawks end regular season on high note

March 2, 2012

The Howard College women's basketball team ended its season on a winning note, but the Hawks needed every second on the clock to do it.

Senior guard Kali Jerrell hit two free throws with no time remaining to give Howard a 61-59 victory over Frank Phillips College in the regular-season finale for both teams at Garrett Coliseum Thursday evening.

In Thursday's nightcap, the Howard men's team needed no such late heroics as it tuned up for the upcoming Region V Tournament with a 75-54 win over Frank Phillips.
