Lady Steers sending quality, quantity to regional track meet

April 29, 2011

Big Spring High School girls' track coach Nick Roberson believes a window of opportunity is opening for his team.

The Lady Steers will send 10 athletes to the Region I-3A track meet, which starts Monday in Lubbock, and Roberson believes that large number is but a harbinger of things to come for the program.

Seniors Desiree Anderson and Chanvel Cuviello, juniors April Turner, Cerbi Ritchey and Bridgette Tuitt, sophomores Bianca Ryle and Jaycee Williams and freshmen Morgan Seaton, Donisha McGree and Dyrshae Vandervilt will represent BSHS at the regional meet.

Young Lady Buffs ready for regionals

April 29, 2011

FORSAN — Robert Hillger is hoping youth will be served at next week's Region I-2A track meet.

That's because Hillger, the girls' track coach at Forsan High School, will send a team dominated by freshmen — five of the eight team members who qualified for regionals are freshmen.

But just because the team is younger doesn't mean it isn't ready to compete at a high level.

“The quality here is much deeper than I've ever had,” said Hillger, who is in his sixth year at the helm of the program. “We don't have a few athletes who contribute — they're all pretty good.”

AGency hopeful gallery will create new 'parents'

April 28, 2011

The whole idea behind it is to touch someone's heart, which only makes the name more fitting: The Heart Gallery.

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services began the Heart Gallery, a traveling photo collection of children waiting for adoption, in 2001.

“The idea is that someone will see these photos and want to adopt one of these children,” said Rebecca Moughon, chairperson of the Howard County Child Welfare Board.
