The Howard College menâ€™s basketball team kicked off its 2014-15 season on a high note on Friday afternoon by grinding out an impressive win over Carl Albert State College in Plano.
The Hawks, who entered the year ranked No. 18 nationally in the NJCAA preseason poll, began their three-day outing in north-central Texas with an 80-68 win over the Vikings.
The Christoval Cougars did the unexpected on Friday night. And the Forsan Buffaloes were the worse for it.
Christoval dealt Forsan a stunning 26-20 setback at Jack Pardee Memorial Field. In so doing, the Cougars handed Forsan its third straight loss in as many weeks and all but ended Forsanâ€™s postseason hopes.
Early voting for the Nov. 4 general election finished lower than recent Howard County elections, but officials are still hopeful for a good-sized turnout when the polls open Tuesday.
