SNYDER â€” The Big Spring High School Lady Steers 2014 volleyball season came to an end on Friday afternoon in the friendly confines of the Scurry County Coliseum with a tough 3-0 setback against the Decatur Lady Eagles in the semifinal round of the Region I-4A Volleyball Championships.

ALEDO â€“ When the Gainesville High School Leopards looked at the statistical numbers associated with the Big Spring High School Steers, they probably got all giddy and developed a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.
Garrett Wigington and Manuel Galvan helped the Steer defense turn that feeling into one of disappointment and despair on a cold Friday night at Bearcats Stadium. The two helped turn a dominating defensive effort by the Steers in the first half into a thrilling 35-17 victory in the Class 4A Division bi-district state playoffs â€“ and a return trip to the second round.
Nathan Schneider didnâ€™t think too much about the situation when Brownwoodâ€™s Harley Price ducked his head and pushed his way into a pile in an effort to get a few extra yards. He only knew one thing, with his team trailing with 9:25 left in the game the Steers desperately needed the ball.
Thus, when Price didnâ€™t go down, Schneider decided to try and strip the ball from the running backsâ€™ hands.
28 New Orleans (4-4) @
10 Carolina (3-5-1)

The Steers were scheduled to have played their games in Merkel.
For Julianna Rodriguez and Erin Pollard, the seven-year volleyball itch probably wonâ€™t be ending any time too soon â€“ especially if the Western Texas College Lady Wranglers have their way.
Rodriguez and Pollard, two key pieces to the Big Spring High School Lady Steersâ€™ run to the Class 3A state volleyball tournament a year ago, officially extended their volleyball careers on Monday afternoon when they signed letters of intent to play for the Lady Westerners.
