Howard College trustees will get an update on the building project on the college's San Angelo campus â€” including a recommendation for construction manager at risk â€” when they meet at 12:30 p.m. Monday in the student union building's Tumbleweed Room.
According to College President Dr. Cheryl Sparks, the project â€” estimated at $12 million, with a final figure not yet established â€” will allow for construction of two new buildings on Howard's San Angelo campus.
CLYDE â€” Brendan Roman, senior running back for Forsan picked up a Quanah fumble at the one-yard line and ran it in for a 99-yard touchdown early in the first quarter during the Buffaloes (6-5) bi-district outing against the 8-3 Indians on Friday.
Unfortunately for the Buffs, a holding penalty caused the score to be recalled.
That would set the tone of Forsan's season-ending, 41-6 loss. Five interceptions and a lost fumble coupled with costly penalties proved insurmountable for Head Coach Jason Phillips' squad.
ACKERLY â€” Grady (8-3) opened its season with back-to-back losses, including a narrow, 56-48 defeat at the hands of the Ropes Eagles (7-4) in the Wildcats first game of the year.
After winning six of its last seven regular season games, Grady â€” under the tutelage of first year Head Coach Chris Kuykendal â€” met Ropes once again Friday in the first round of postseason action.
This time, a much-improved Wildcat squad upended the Eagles in a convincing, 80-56 win.
Grady trailed 16-0 early in the affair, but rallied back to take a 44-22 heading into the second half.
STERLING CITY â€” The Garden City Bearkats posted a 3-7 record during the regular season, but found a way into the playoffs.
Despite being at their healthiest in some time, the Bearkats â€” who won back-to-back state championships in 2009 and 2010 â€” were outmatched by the undefeated Water Valley Wildcats on Thursday, losing their postseason opener by mercy rule, 64-18.
