May 6, 2011

Officials with the Big Spring Police Department say they are investigating an e-mail alleging a former Big Spring Independent School District principal engaged in an inappropriate relationship with a student several years ago.

Kennel Club planning dog-gone good time

May 6, 2011

Were it said that Big Spring has something to bark about this weekend, well, someone might be hanging their head in shame. Certainly, there would be no tail-wagging over that bad pun.

What is happening, however, is an event in its 41st year — the Big Spring Kennel Club Dog Show. Once again it is being held at the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum on the Howard College campus. Admission is free and the show, or shows — the event is actually two separate dog shows — begin at 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. The coliseum doors will open at 8 a.m.

Pressure no problem for Stanton's Montez

May 6, 2011

STANTON — The Texas High School Track and Field Meet is one high-stakes event, but Adam Montez just may be pressure-proof.

After all, the Stanton High School senior has already thrived under one of the most pressure-packed situations a track and field runner can find himself in.

At last week's Region I-2A track meet in Odessa, a false start disqualified Montez from the 400-meter run final, meaning he went into the 800-meter run facing his last chance to qualify for the state meet.

No pressure, right?

Gem show: Pitchers shine as Hawks win 2 at regional tourney

May 6, 2011

LUBBOCK — The Howard College Hawks have made their name with hitting this softball season, but it was pitching and defense that saved the day Thursday.

Offense key to Hawks' chances at Region V tournament

May 5, 2011

Anyone who has watched the Howard College softball team knows that, to a large degree, the Hawks will go as far as their bats will take them this postseason.

Fueled by one of the most potent offensive attacks in team history, the Hawks finished third in the Western Junior College Athletic Conference with a 19-6 mark, and they hope their bats remain hot as they prepare to open play at the Region V Softball Tournament, which begins Thursday at Lubbock Christian University.

FHS state track contingent's been there, done that

May 5, 2011

FORSAN — As Yogi Berra might say, it's like deja vu all over again.

When the Forsan High School boys' track contingent competes in the upcoming Class 2A state track and field meet in Austin, first-time jitters will not be in abundance.

That's because, for the most part, the same athletes will be competing in the same events on the same stage as they did at this time last year.
