Coahoma High School head coach Trey Gardner and Forsan head coach Jason Phillips had a lot in common on Friday night as they watched their two teams square off in season-opening “Howard Bowl.” Both were less than pleased with the way their team’s played. Mistakes. Turnovers. Penalties. Missed opportunities. In the end, however, Gardner had a little less to be unhappy about.

MONAHANS – The Big Spring High School defense had every chance in the world to fold up like a cheap suit on Friday night in front of a large crowd at Estes Memorial Stadium. Sure. At times, they were pushed around more than a lawnmower in Florida as they gave up 364 yards. Sure. They got a little help from the officiating crew that overturned a fourth-quarter touchdown that would have given the Loboes a lead with just ovet 2 minutes to play.
Kyler Franks and Joseph Melendez both rushed for a pair of touchdowns and helped the Bulldogs reel off a convincing 38-7 rout of the McCamey Badgers on Friday in front of a large crowd at Bulldog Stadium.
Jesse Cervantes rushed for three touchdowns on Friday night and helped the Forsan Buffaloes scratch their way into the win column with a dominating 57-0 rout of the Plains Cowboys.

Big Spring topples Wylie in finale

April 27, 2013

Big Spring Head Baseball Coach Bert Otto described the Steers' 5-3 win over Wylie on Friday as “icing on the cake” for the five seniors who were honored at Steer Park as they played the final home game of their careers.

Not their final game, however.

The victory guaranteed Big Spring the third District 4-3A playoff seed.

Forsan downs Winters, will play Van Horn in playoff opener

April 26, 2013

FORSAN — Thursday's game against Winters was basically a tune-up game for Forsan, who had already locked up the No. 2 seed in District 6-1A, defeated the Blizzards 8-2.

Blaise Coffman issued zero walks, didn't give up a run and struck out five in five innings on the mound. Clayton Galloway and Trevor Burchett each saw one inning of work as well.

Lady Buffaloes preparing for playoffs

April 24, 2013

FORSAN — In the past eight years, the Forsan softball program has been dominant.

Under the tutelage of Head Coach Shanna Taylor, the Lady Buffaloes — who recorded a 12-2 district record — have not only made the playoffs each season, they have not been knocked out until the regional quarterfinal round or later.

After the recent University Interscholastic league realignment, Forsan dropped from Class 2A to 1A — making it an even bigger fish in an even smaller pond. And that's just fine with Taylor, who hopes to take her girls all the way to the state championship in 2013.

Coahoma goes from 0-20 to district champs within one year

April 23, 2013

COAHOMA — Two things needed to happen for Coahoma to clinch a district title: The Bulldogs had to beat Lamesa — a team which beat CHS the first time around — and Denver City had to be upset by Brownfield.

The Bulldogs came through, defeating Lamesa 18-6, ending the game via run-rule. Then, the Cubs got the best of the Mustangs and Coahoma — a baseball team which didn't win a single game last year — found themselves atop the 4-2A standings.

Lady Hawks take two from Midland

April 22, 2013

Having already clinched the Western Junior College Athletic Conference title, Howard College is preparing for the Region V tournament after completing a sweep of Midland College at Foundation Field on Saturday by winning 13-4 and 9-1 in a doubleheader.

Claudette Smith helped the Lady Hawks in their rout of the Lady Chaparrals in Game Three of a four-game stand when she belted a grand slam home run. Smith also had a two-run blast, accounting for six RBI during the outing.

Hawks complete sweep of Luna College

April 22, 2013

Howard College finished off its sweep of Luna College on Saturday, winning Game Three of the four-game stint, 5-2 and Game Four, 9-0.

Taking all four games was important the Hawks, who are in a bit of uncharted territory.

Howard College's perennially strong baseball program has faced some adversity this year.

With the renovations to the playing surface at Jack Barber Field, the Hawks were forced to play more than 30 games on the road before they enjoyed a home field advantage.

Lady Steers earn playoff berth

April 22, 2013

The one-year playoff drought is over.

Big Spring defeated Monahans on Saturday by a score of 2-1 at Lady Steer Field, then Snyder beat Greenwood to ensure BSHS the final postseason bid from District 4-3A.

The Lady Loboes jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but the Lady Steers answered quickly answered back.

Steer golfers in second place at regional tourney

April 18, 2013

LUBBOCK — Thirty degrees with 30 miles an hour wind gusts. That's what the Big Spring boys golf team is facing today as they wrap up the regional tournament at Shadow Hills Golf Course in Lubbock.

The Steers shot a good round yesterday and at press time, are sitting in second place with a score of 309 — one stroke ahead of rival Abilene Wylie and 12 strokes behind No. 1 Andrews.

“I'm proud of our kids,” Joslin said of Wednesday's performance. “It was really tough, the wind was blowing hard. We wanted to put ourselves in position to get a top three finish finish and we did that.”

Coahoma squads come out on top, BSHS loses, Forsan splits

Baseball

Big Spring
GREENWOOD — Big Spring baseball was also on the receiving end of a loss on the road Tuesday, as the Rangers held on for a 5-2 win over the Steers, throwing a monkey wrench in Head Coach Bert Otto's plan to nab the No. 2 seed out of District 4-3A, which is more desirable than a No. 3 spot due to the strength of potential opponents.

In the top of the first inning, Karsten Knudson and Haegan Rodriguez led off the game with back-to-back singles, then Knudson scored a run on a sacrifice fly by Gunnar Kennedy to put the Steers up 1-0.

Seeley's grand slam helps key Hawks' win

April 17, 2013

More often than not, when you give up 10 runs in a baseball game it's bad news, but that wasn't the case for Howard College on Tuesday. The Hawks were smacking the ball around and won 16-10, with sophomore Reed Seeley belting a grand slam to help key the win.

Howard also got a little — OK, a lot — of help from mistakes on the part of the Westerners, who recorded six errors in the high-scoring affair.
