As they have for the past several years, the Big Spring High School and Forsan High School marching bands turned in exemplary performances at recent University Interscholastic League regional competition, with each band earning a Division I rating, the highest possible.
Forsan's performance earned it another spot in the Class 2A area contest, which will be held Saturday in Lubbock. The top three bands there advance to the UIL state marching contest, set for November in San Antonio.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Thursday and 7 a.m. today:
â€˘ RONALD LEE MONCADA, 47, of 2530 Hunter, was arrested Thursday on a warrant from another agency.
â€˘ DANIEL WAYNE MCKNIGHT, 34, of 1114 Mulberry, was arrested Thursday on a warrant from another agency.
â€˘ PAUL MORENO, 49, of 616 Caylor Dr., was arrested Thursday on a warrant from another agency.
â€˘ DAVID WARD SAUSMAN, 47, of 1309 Grafa, was arrested Thursday on a warrant for failure to drive in a single lane.
â€˘ CRIMINAL MISCHIEF was reported in the 2500 block of Dow.
The Forsan boys cross country team finished in first place in the district meet in Lubbock. This is the fourth consecutive district title for the Buffaloes and makes five out of the last six.
The boys had a perfect score, claiming the first five spots individually. Kyle Stevenson finished in first place overall with a time of 17:08, followed closely by second place finisher P.J. Horton with a time of 17:28.
Third place went to Tyler Evans with 17:35, while Matthew Mims took fourth place and Elgen Suazo took fifth place.
The Lady Steers clinched a playoff spot this week, defeating Brownwood in four games. Big Spring grabs the runner-up position for District 5-3A and will face the Vernon Lady Lions, District 6-3A's third place finisher either Oct. 31 or Nov. 1 in the Bi-District round of the playoffs.
The Lady Steers fell behind in the first game, eventually falling by a close 23-25 score. The games did not get any easier, but the girls of Big Spring forced things to go their way, winning three straight games by scores of 26-24, 25-23 and 27-25.
The future of the Forsan Buffaloes is sitting calmly in their own hands. This week, the 5-3 Buffaloes (2-2 in district) will take on Stanton in a clash of area teams looking to distance themselves from the herd and make the playoffs.
Idalou and Coahoma have already clinched a place at the table, though who gets to say grace will not be determined until the two teams finally meet Nov. 4.
It would be easy to look past Stanton for Forsan head coach Jason Phillips â€” and look at next week's match-up with Hawley (2-2) â€” but the Forsan helmsman knows better.
