SNYDER â€” The Big Spring Lady Steers are entering the offseason a little earlier than they wanted.
In a win-and-in scenario, Snyder clinched third place and a playoff berth with a 44-32 win over Big Spring Tuesday night in the season finale.
The Lady Steersâ€™ woes in the first half continued, which was a big reason for the loss. Big Spring scored seven points in the first half.
But despite that, Big Spring made Snyder sweat a little bit, getting within 10 a few times in the second half after the slow start.
The Howard College softball team went from a close win to an onslaught in its doubleheader against Cisco College Tuesday at Big Spring High School.
The Hawks needed an RBI single from sophomore infielder Lana Dominguez in the bottom of the seventh to edge the Lady Wranglers in the first game.
They didnâ€™t have to sweat so much in the second game, upending Cisco College 10-1 in six innings.

Anticipating a shortage of water in the coming months, Big Spring City Council on Tuesday approved first reading of a resolution supporting and participating in a regional water education and conservation program developed and implemented by the Colorado River Municipal Water District.

With barely a quorum, the Big Spring City Council approved a measure Tuesday night that could save the municipality thousands of dollars in the coming years on general obligation bonds.
The council — with members Stephanie Horton (District 1), Manuel Ramirez Jr. (District 2) and Terry Hansen (District 6) absent — approved the ordinance on a unanimous vote, giving the city administration the go-ahead to refinance bonds in an effort to take advantage of lower interest rates.
