CISCO â€” Riding the wave of momentum that got them in the postseason â€” and guard Kevin Dunn â€” the Bowie Jackrabbits tested the Big Spring
Steers early in Mondayâ€™s bi-district playoff game.
To combat that, the Steers didnâ€™t just rely on Luke Adams. There was Marc Segundo and Tristian Clay hitting big jumpers and Mike Menefield and Devante Lloyd dominating in the post.
Everything fell into place for the Steers on the way to a 77-47 win to start the boysâ€™ Class 3A playoffs.
ODESSA â€” Tyler Fulton and Grayson Gray have been big for the Stanton Buffaloes all season.

Stanton head coach Ken VanCuren said he was impressed with the way his team stepped up at the right time.

If Howard County Volunteer Fire Chief Tommy Sullivan and his band of firefighters seem a bit weary these days, there's good reason.
The volunteer fire department has been called to numerous grass fires — despite an ongoing county-wide burn ban.
It may be a touchy subject, but they are Ballsy enough to handle it — pun intended.
The Ballsy Cancer Society of America is a new foundation aimed at educating the public, especially males ages 15-40, about testicular cancer.
“At this point, there is nothing else like this out there,” Jennifer Hedges, founder of Ballsy, said. “There is nothing in America that focuses on research and education.”
Hedges understands the need for education on this issue, after witnessing the journey her husband, Brady has had to travel.
