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.

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.

It was a tight game for 30 minutes.

Steers, Buffaloes win district baseball openers

March 20, 2013

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

Using a little small ball, patience and luck, the Steers won their district opener on the road against Snyder by a score of 2-0.

Both teams’ bats were quiet to start off, when in the top of the fourth inning, Haegan Rodriguez led off with a stand-up triple.

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.

Big Spring
SNYDER — District play has been full of ups and downs for Big Spring — and it’s only the first week.

After a 12-2 run-rule victory over Wylie to kick off 4-3A action, the Lady Steers lost by the same score to Snyder on Tuesday, also in run-rule fashion.

“They did to us exactly what we did to Wylie,” BSHS Head Coach John Sparks said.

Hawks fall in Region V championship game, but could receive at-large bid

March 11, 2013

LUBBOCK — Howard College's whole season came down to a free throw. With the game tied at 59 with 4.32 seconds left on the clock, if New Mexico Junior College's Desmond Lee missed his second shot from the line, the NJCAA Region V championship game at the Rip Griffin Center would have likely gone into overtime. But he made it, putting the Thunderbirds up 60-59.

March 9, 2013

LUBBOCK — Two down, one to go. The Hawks started off strong in the semifinal round of the NJCAA Region V tournament Friday at the Rip Griffin Center against conference foe Odessa College — who Howard dispatched twice already this season — but the Wranglers battled back to give the Hawks a scare before a strong second half showing by the seven-foot Goran Huskic, who keyed the Hawks' 71-56 win.

Coahoma trio named to All-District hoops squad

March 7, 2013

COAHOMA — It was a tough season for the young Bulldogette hoops squad (4-11, 1-4), but like many other Crossroads area sports teams, they are young and full of promise.

And that's not just coachspeak either. Three CHS basketball players were selected to represent the school and they are all underclassmen — a good sign of things to come, according to Head Girls Basketball Coach Paul Hartman.
