Worn out, Howard falls to Vikes

May 13, 2011

LUBBOCK — Howard College's Hawks managed to survive marathon games and a torrid pace through the loser's bracket to place themselves in position for a trip to nationals during the Region V Baseball Tournament here, but in the end, it may have been fatigue that sent them home Thursday.

It wasn't all fatigue, of course. A scrappy, highly-touted Grayson County College ballclub had more than a little to do with it.

Pressure no problem for Stanton's Montez

May 6, 2011

STANTON — The Texas High School Track and Field Meet is one high-stakes event, but Adam Montez just may be pressure-proof.

After all, the Stanton High School senior has already thrived under one of the most pressure-packed situations a track and field runner can find himself in.

At last week's Region I-2A track meet in Odessa, a false start disqualified Montez from the 400-meter run final, meaning he went into the 800-meter run facing his last chance to qualify for the state meet.

No pressure, right?
