Brownwood tops
Lady Steers
Big Spring Softball Coach John Sparks knew Brownwood would be a tough District 5-3A opponent, and he was proven right as Big Spring was on the short end of an 8-3 decision at the Big Spring ISD Softball Complex Friday.
Things got out of hand quickly for BSHS — Brownwood came out swinging, putting up five runs in the top of the first.
Errors — seven to be exact — derailed the Lady Steers.
Sparks said those miscues were the major reason the Lady Steers dropped to a 1-2 district record.
