Okay, letâ€™s get this straight. The Howard College Hawks need a win tonight when they take to the Harold Davis Court in the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum. And, because of tie-breakers within the Western Junior College Athletic Conference race, they need it badly.
The Howard College Hawksâ€™ head coach went into their weekend series with El Paso Community College looking for his team to improve its production at the plate. Quality at-bats mean more offensive production head coach Britt Smith had preached to his team.
The Tejanos probably wish they hadnâ€™t listened as well.
The Garden City Lady Bearkats saw their 2013-14 season come to an end with a loss to the No. 2-ranked Highland Lady Hornets in the Region II-A, Division 2 championship game. Highlandâ€™s 51-37 win sends the Lady Hornets to the state tournament, which begins on Feb. 27 in Austin.
