Garden City football: Jones expects motivated Follett team in semifinal matchup

December 3, 2010

GARDEN CITY — The Garden City Bearkats are almost like rock stars after every playoff game, being mobbed by fans and supporters alike and showered with congratulatory messages and admiration.

“That’s one of the perks of winning,” head coach Vance Jones said. “Everybody loves a winner. They really enjoy the accolades they get from their family and their friends. It makes it all a lot more fun.”

Follett, the Bearkats’ opponent for the UIL six-man football semifinal
at 8 p.m. Saturday in Seymour, won’t be looking at Garden City with

Hawk men get break, women in WJCAC Pre-Conference tourney

December 3, 2010

LUBBOCK — At 10-1, not much should be bothering the Howard College men’s basketball team.

But there is one underlying problem bothering the Hawks: depth.

The Hawks have a break after their 107-46 win over Lubbock Christian Junior Varsity Thursday in Lubbock. They do not play until Dec. 31 in the Mesa Community College shootout.

Right now, however, they are down to eight players after Will Bunton was suspended this week for breaking team rules.

Both the Big Spring girls and boys will be in the Andrews Tournament, the Coahoma Bulldogs kick off their 25th annual tournament and the Forsan boys continue searching for their first win in the Garden City Tournament.

Lady Steers win in OT, boys stumble in San Angelo

December 1, 2010

GREENWOOD — Cerbi Ritchey was the go-to player when it mattered most and Greenwood probably knew that.

The Rangerettes just couldn’t do much about it.

The Lady Steers edged Greenwood in a 45-41 victory on the road thanks to nine points in overtime , six of which were from Ritchey.

In total, Ritchey had 21 points and Mackenzie Stone had 11 to lead the way. Stone had a team-high seven rebounds and Diamond Mayes had six boards.

Mayes and Ritchey in the post is becoming a lethal combination for head coach Mike Warren.

7 Lady Steer volleyball players earn all-district honors

November 30, 2010

The all-district honors for 5-3A volleyball were announced Tuesday and seven Big Spring players are represented on the list.

As a key component defensively for the Lady Steers, libero Valerie Ross nabbed top defensive specialist in the district. Setter/middle blocker Cerbi Ritchey, middle blocker Taylor Seaton and outside hitter Desiree Anderson made first-team all-district. These three were go-to players for kills this season.

Still going!

November 29, 2010

The Garden City Bearkats aren’t ones to waste opportunities or time.
So just because there were less than two minutes left in the second quarter, didn’t mean they should roll into halftime with a small lead over Ira.

Garden City had different plans en route to its 80-46 win over the Bulldogs in the six-man football state quarterfinal matchup at Memorial Stadium in Big Spring.

“I think we scored two touchdowns within a minute and 30 seconds just before the half, Garden City head coach Vance Jones said. “That was really huge.”

Area playoffs: 'Kats face undefeated Ira Saturday in Big Spring

November 26, 2010

GARDEN CITY — On Monday, all the hoopla from the Garden City Bearkats' emotional playoff win against Borden County was over. Head coach Vance Jones made sure of that.

“We’re already past that. We’ve already celebrated that,” Jones said. “We’re focused on the next challenge.”

The players have apparently heard Jones’ message and should take it seriously, considering another undefeated team will be across the field at 6 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Stadium in Big Spring.

Late shot downs Lady Steers

November 24, 2010

By the middle of the third quarter, the Big Spring women’s basketball sideline couldn’t be any more excited and Steer Gym couldn’t be any louder.

Merkel was ahead the whole game until a Valerie Ross steal in between two Mackenzie Stone 3-pointers gave Big Spring its first lead of the night against Merkel at 35-34.

Things didn’t stay that way for the Lady Steers, though.

One for the ages: Fumbled snap helps Garden City edge Borden County

November 20, 2010

FORSAN — Once Borden County’s score brought the Coyotes within two of Garden City with 22 seconds left, the Bearkats were thinking overtime.
They didn’t see a fumbled snap on Borden County’s conversion attempt after that score coming.

“When they had a bad snap, I was just ‘Golly, I can’t believe that,’” Garden City head coach Vance Jones said after the 44-42 win. “It was just an awesome game.”
