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.

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.”

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.

Hawks take out Hutchinson 92-69

March 20, 2013

HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The Howard College men’s basketball team had never seen a crowd like they did Tuesday at the National Junior College Athletic Association championship tournament as they were tasked with facing the hometown team — Hutchinson Community College (31-2) — which was in the national tourney for the first time since 1997.

But, the Hawks have some big time players who made some big time baskets down the stretch to take a commanding lead they wouldn’t relinquish and removed the Blue Dragons from the bracket with a 92-69 win.

SNYDER — Big Spring Head Baseball Coach Bert Otto’s team is off to another good start.

Gunnar Kennedy then hit a ball hard to the Tigers’ short stop who committed a throwing error, allowing Rodriguez to cross home plate and Kennedy to advance to second base.
