Backs against the wall: Steers fight for playoff spot against Snyder

November 5, 2010

Even before Big Spring-Snyder kicks off at 7:30 p.m. today at Memorial Stadium, the Steers are down 13-0.

They have to come out swinging, no question about. That is, if Big Spring wants a playoff spot.

There are other scenarios that would allow the Steers to clinch a playoff spot in Week 10 against Snyder, depending on what happens in the Brownwood-Wylie game. The one they'll most likely have to rely on is beating the Tigers by at least 13 points, by way of the point differential rule in case of ties in District 5-3A.

BSHS cross country ready to make noise at regional meet

November 5, 2010

Big Spring cross country coach Randy Britton doesn't want his runners worrying about where they finish when the Steers compete in the regional meet Saturday in Lubbock, at least not during the race.

Britton's approach to this meet is simple: run a personal best and everything will take care of itself.

“This group of kids is really young,” he said. “I do see a lot of potential in them. My biggest thing to tell them is they need to go up there and try to run a PR (personal best). If they run a PR, there's nothing they can do about it. Just let the chips fall where they may.”

Hawks put away LCU JV 92-26

November 5, 2010

There's not much Howard College can take from its 92-26 win over the Lubbock Christian Junior Varsity team Thursday at Dorothy Garrett Coliseum.

But Howard College head coach Mark Adams is pleased with what his team can do defensively.

“This is another good warm-up for us,” he said. “We're getting ready to go up to Weatherford (Okla.). But our defensive effort is good. I think we have a chance to be very good defensively.”

Vernon ends BSHS volleyball's season in playoffs

November 3, 2010

ALBANY — The Big Spring volleyball team's season is over.

The Lady Steers were in a long, hard-fought battle all night in their bi-district playoff game against Vernon, but the Lady Lions prevailed in five set 25-20, 19-25, 15-25, 30-28, 15-9.

This match had all the twists and turns one could handle. Vernon got the advantage early, especially in the first set. The Lady Lions held on to the lead the whole set, while service errors and Vernon's persistence caused problems for the Lady Steers.

Ready to Roll: With no play-in game, rest, Lady Steers confident about playoffs

November 2, 2010

Excuse the Big Spring volleyball team for feeling like its in uncharted territory — or at least territory the Lady Steers haven't been in for a while.

No play-in game to get into the playoffs. Check. Some much-needed rest before the playoffs. Check. No defending state champion waiting to pounce the Lady Steers in the bi-district round. Check.

All that has Big Spring feeling like it has a chance to go deep in the playoffs this season, as opposed to last year. It starts with Vernon at 6:30 p.m. today at Albany High School in Albany.

Howard College women thrash LCU JV 114-44

November 2, 2010

Porsche Young felt like all freshmen women's basketball players should during their first collegiate game.

“I was excited and nervous,” the guard from Oklahoma City said. “I came out and my hands were sweating. But it was fun, it was a good experience.”

Young might have said she was nervous, but she didn't play like it.
The freshman shined in the Howard College Hawks' season-opening win over Lubbock Christian Junior Varsity 114-44 with 25 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.

Midland, Howard College top NJCAA DI Men's Basketball Preseason Rankings

October 30, 2010

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Since 2005, NJCAA's Region 5/District 5 has won three national titles and appeared in four championship games.
Thus, it is no wonder why the top two programs from Region 5 top this year's NJCAA Division I Men's Basketball Preseason Poll.

Midland College, which won the 2007 title and was runner-up in 2009, and defending national champion Howard College come into this season ranked No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, which is just par for the course.

Grady falls to Borden County

October 30, 2010

GAIL — Borden County defeated Grady this week, but the Wildcats will be the Coyotes' biggest cheerleaders next week.

The 64-38 loss at Borden County gave the Wildcats their first district loss this season. The Wildcats need Borden County to beat Sands in Week 10 next week to clinch a playoff spot. If Sands win, then it comes down to point differential, something Grady head coach Brad Cox hopes to avoid.

Stanton clinches playoff spot, Forsan falls to 1-4 in district play

October 30, 2010

STANTON — With a playoff spot on the line, the Stanton Buffaloes took care of business.

Stanton's 42-20 win over Forsan Friday in Stanton clinched a playoff spot for head coach John Peterson's squad. The Buffs earned the last spot right behind Idalou and Coahoma (those two teams play for a possible share of the district title next week). Stanton will finish up at Anson in Week 10.

“This is one of the goals we've had all year,” Peterson said. “Of course, we want to finish it out with another victory against Anson. This puts us in the playoffs, now we'll finish out the season next week.”

For many years, the Coahoma and Forsan football teams did the unthinkable – they decided the “...
