Gem show: Pitchers shine as Hawks win 2 at regional tourney

May 6, 2011

LUBBOCK — The Howard College Hawks have made their name with hitting this softball season, but it was pitching and defense that saved the day Thursday.

The Hawks escaped a no-out, bases-loaded jam in the first inning, then turned things over to the pitching combo of Sandra Serna and Selina Mitchell en route to a 4-3 victory over Midland College in a second-round Region V West tournament game at Lubbock Christian University.

Offense key to Hawks' chances at Region V tournament

May 5, 2011

Anyone who has watched the Howard College softball team knows that, to a large degree, the Hawks will go as far as their bats will take them this postseason.

Fueled by one of the most potent offensive attacks in team history, the Hawks finished third in the Western Junior College Athletic Conference with a 19-6 mark, and they hope their bats remain hot as they prepare to open play at the Region V Softball Tournament, which begins Thursday at Lubbock Christian University.

FHS state track contingent's been there, done that

May 5, 2011

FORSAN — As Yogi Berra might say, it's like deja vu all over again.

When the Forsan High School boys' track contingent competes in the upcoming Class 2A state track and field meet in Austin, first-time jitters will not be in abundance.

That's because, for the most part, the same athletes will be competing in the same events on the same stage as they did at this time last year.

May 4, 2011

LUBBOCK — Just as he did in 2010, Big Spring High School’s Mike Menefield will compete in two events at the upcoming state track and field meet in Austin.

Menefield qualified for the state meet by placing first in the triple jump and second in the long jump at the Region I-3A meet, which concluded Tuesday in Lubbock.

After winning the triple jump during the first day of the regional meet Monday, Menefield recorded a distance of 22 feet, 1.25 inches to place second in the long jump Tuesday.

BSHS trio state-meet bound

May 3, 2011

LUBBOCK — It doesn’t pay to doubt Mike Menefield.

The Big Spring High School track star earned a return trip to the Texas high school track meet in dramatic and convincing fashion, setting the triple jump record at the Region I-3A Track Meet in Lubbock Monday.

Menefield scratched on his first two attempts Monday, but on his third and final try, he uncorked a leap of 49 feet, 6.5 inches to both win the event and set the meet record at the same time.

His winning jump was more than three feet better than that posted by runner-up Dillon Wilkins of Mineral Wells.

Lady Steers sending quality, quantity to regional track meet

April 29, 2011

Big Spring High School girls' track coach Nick Roberson believes a window of opportunity is opening for his team.

The Lady Steers will send 10 athletes to the Region I-3A track meet, which starts Monday in Lubbock, and Roberson believes that large number is but a harbinger of things to come for the program.

Seniors Desiree Anderson and Chanvel Cuviello, juniors April Turner, Cerbi Ritchey and Bridgette Tuitt, sophomores Bianca Ryle and Jaycee Williams and freshmen Morgan Seaton, Donisha McGree and Dyrshae Vandervilt will represent BSHS at the regional meet.

Young Lady Buffs ready for regionals

April 29, 2011

FORSAN — Robert Hillger is hoping youth will be served at next week's Region I-2A track meet.

That's because Hillger, the girls' track coach at Forsan High School, will send a team dominated by freshmen — five of the eight team members who qualified for regionals are freshmen.

But just because the team is younger doesn't mean it isn't ready to compete at a high level.

“The quality here is much deeper than I've ever had,” said Hillger, who is in his sixth year at the helm of the program. “We don't have a few athletes who contribute — they're all pretty good.”

3 Hawks sign letters of intent

April 28, 2011

Three members of the Howard College men's basketball team will be honing their hoops skills at a higher level next season.

Corey Stern, Joe Bright and Carlos Emory signed letters of intent to attend Division I universities during a Wednesday ceremony at Garrett Coliseum.

Stern will attend Texas State University, Bright will head to Stephen F. Austin and Emory will play ball for the University of Oregon.

All three sophomores played crucial roles this past season for the Hawks, who advanced to the second round of the Region V tournament before falling to McLennan Community College.

Forsan baseball, Coahoma softball teams make playoffs

April 26, 2011

COLORADO CITY — New year, new classification, same postseason hopes for the Forsan Buffaloes.

The Buffaloes clinched a spot in the Class 2A state high school baseball playoffs with a 12-5 victory over Colorado City Monday afternoon.

Forsan came into the game needing a win to hold off Coahoma for the final District 3-2A playoff spot. A loss to C-City would have dropped the Buffs into a tie with Coahoma and forced a one-game playoff between the teams.
