LUBBOCK â€” If Forsan's Buffaloes are going to advance in the Class 2A state baseball playoffs they'll have to do it the hard way â€” winning two games today at Lubbock Cooper's Pirate Field against a formidable Bushland High School squad.
LUBBOCK â€” Howard College's Hawks managed to survive marathon games and a torrid pace through the loser's bracket to place themselves in position for a trip to nationals during the Region V Baseball Tournament here, but in the end, it may have been fatigue that sent them home Thursday.
It wasn't all fatigue, of course. A scrappy, highly-touted Grayson County College ballclub had more than a little to do with it.

â€˘ ATHEA RYANNE DARROW, 26, of 704 Willia, was arrested Thursday on warrants for no driver's license â€“ when unlicensed and a warrant from another agency.

LUBBOCK â€” Win or lose today, Howard College Coach Britt Smith can finally say his Hawks are doing what he has been wanting them to do all season long â€” they are playing as a team.
â€śThis is probably the biggest team effort we've had all year,â€ť he said this morning, hours after his Hawks upended Grayson County College 18-7 to force a winner-take-everything championship game in the Region V Baseball Tournament. â€śIt took a lot of adversity to get them to do it, but they have really come together.â€ť
