Send-off set for Lady Steers

November 19, 2013

The community is encouraged to participate in the activities surrounding the Lady Steers' departure for the state UIL state volleyball championship tournament in Garland on Wednesday.

A pep rally is slated for 9:35 a.m. Wednesday, then at about 10 a.m., the Lady Steers will board the bus and be escorted out of town by local law enforcement.

The planned route will begin on the west side of the high school, then south on Goliad to 24th, then west on 24th to Gregg, then to I-20.

Lady Steers defeat Wylie to advance to state championship

November 18, 2013

SNYDER — Big Spring is headed to the state championship tournament.

The Lady Steers (31-13) may as well have been playing a home game Saturday against District 4-3A nemesis Abilene Wylie, as the crowd was very Big Spring-centric. And quite loud.

Steers win bi-district championship with rout of Fabens

November 16, 2013

PECOS — In a display of sheer domination, Big Spring (8-3) defeated Fabens (4-7) 61-21 at Eagle Stadium Friday, earning the bi-district championship for the first time since 2009.

There were no pivotal moments which served as turning points in momentum — the Steers simply dominated in all phases of the game from the opening kickoff, amassing more than 650 yards of total offense while keeping the Wildcats stymied with smothering defense.

Forsan falls out of playoffs with 20-14 loss to Windthorst

November 16, 2013

COLORADO CITY — It was a hard-fought game, but Forsan (4-7) lost to Windthorst (5-5) 20-14 Friday, ending the Buffaloes' up-and-down season in the bi-district round of the postseason.

The Buffs played well for much of the game, outgaining Windthorst by more than 100 total yards and led 14-7 at the start of the fourth quarter.

It wasn't a lack of offensive or defensive skill which slowed Forsan down, but errors coming at inopportune times, according to FHS Head Coach Jason Phillips.

Lady Steers rally past Springtown, advance to regional final to meet Wylie

November 16, 2013

SNYDER — The Lady Steers (30-13) rallied Friday at the Coliseum after falling in the first two sets to top Springtown (32-8) 22-25, 19-25, 25-17, 25-16, 15-13, claiming the regional semifinal championship in the process.

The win also set up a chance at redemption against District 4-3A rival Wylie (32-9), which is ranked No. 4 in the state by the Texas Girls Coaches Association. A win would crown Big Spring the regional champions and set up a state title run.

Crossroads teams brace for playoffs

November 13, 2013

The Crossroads area football playoff pairings have been finalized.

Big Spring (7-3) will be facing Fabens (4-6) in Pecos on Friday at 7:30 p.m. If the Steers can rebound from Friday's 31-0 loss against Monahans and knock Fabens out of contention, they could again face Andrews (4-6) — which they defeated 61-38 in predistrict play — in the area round, should the Mustangs come out ahead of Borger (3-7).

The road will get a bit harder for BSHS if it can make it to the regional quarterfinal round. At that point, the Steers would likely face Stephenville (8-1) — the defending 3A champion.

Steers close out season with loss to Monahans, move on to face Fabens in bi-district

November 13, 2013

For the first time in 23 years, Big Spring had a chance to claim at least a share of the district championship Friday at Memorial Stadium.
It wasn't the Steers' night.

District foe Monahans ended up winning the title with a 31-0 rout of Big Spring.

Hardly the end to an otherwise stellar season the Steers and Head Coach Phillip Ritchey had hoped for.

But this time around, instead of being forced to wait an entire year to for a shot redemption, BSHS only has to wait a few days, as it will be in the playoffs taking on Fabens — the first postseason appearance since 2009.

Lady Steers edge Monahans to advance to Region I-3A tourney

November 13, 2013

MIDLAND — Not only are the Lady Steers headed to the regional volleyball tournament, they overcame a huge obstacle by the name of Monahans to get there.

Big Spring (29-13) started off strong. Unwilling to let rival Monahans defeat them for the third time this season, the Lady Steers took the first set 25-20 and turned in an even stronger performance in the second set, winning 25-15.

Steers come out ahead of Sweetwater in 65-42 shootout

October 26, 2013

SWEETWATER — Out to prove they're no fluke, the Steers (6-2) traveled to Mustang Bowl Friday to take on Sweetwater (3-5) — as well as earn their second consecutive district victory.

They did just that. Big Spring defeated the Mustangs 65-42, asserting its dominance in a district it couldn't find a way to win in for the past two seasons. But good things come to those who wait. And BSHS Head Coach Phillip Ritchey is glad the wait is over. Not only are the Steers a shoe-in for the playoffs, they could win or split the 4-3A title.

Forsan Cross Country — District champ again

October 25, 2013

LUBBOCK — Forsan brought home its sixth straight district championship after edging No. 2 Sundown Wednesday at Mae Simmons Park.

Jeremy Cervantes led the Buffaloes — as well as the entire field — with a first place finish. Tyler Evans came in second overall and Matthew Mims placed third as Forsan runners populated the top spots. Justin Goff also turned in a top 10 performance, finishing ninth. Cody Tanis earned a 15th place finish and Joshua Evans and Granger Newton claimed 18th and 20th, respectively, giving FHS a point total of 27 to rival Sundown's 34.
