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.

Garden City routs Hermleigh 75-41

February 21, 2013

Garden City cruised past Hermleigh on Tuesday, 75-41 in an area playoff match at the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum, but the score doesn't accurately reflect just how hard the Cardinals fought.

The Bearkats had their hands full against a very physical Hermleigh team who played with a lot of heart, but couldn't keep up with state-ranked GCHS, who began pulling away late in the first period.

Corbin Davis scored 26 points for the Bearkats, while Sam Miller added 16, Juan Bustos put up 14 and Austin Odom had 10 for Garden City.

Avery's late 3 lifts Grady past Borden County

February 21, 2013

SEMINOLE — It was a tight game from the opening buzzer between Grady and Borden County on Tuesday, but a late three-pointer by Ellyn Avery lifted the Lady Wildcats past the Lady Coyotes, 58-55.

Tied at the half, Grady outscored Borden County 13-9 in the third quarter, but the Lady Coyotes rallied back in the fourth. Avery sank the game-winning basket — a 25 footer — with only six seconds left on the clock. Borden County managed to get off a shot, but Grady got the rebound as time expired.

February 16, 2013

Forsan

ROBERT LEE — Forsan (24-9) outscored area playoff opponent Christoval in three-of-four quarters Friday as it came home the 43-32 victor after pulling away from the Lady Cougars in the second half of play.

Brittney Hergert shot a game-high 17 points for the Lady Buffaloes. Raegan Haggard put up 11 and Mary-Ashley McDaniel and Ali Knight each accounted for six.

Defense — once again — was the key to win, according to FHS Head Coach Lindsey Schmidt.

Hawk men, women avenge losses against South Plains College

February 11, 2013

Backed into a corner. That's how Howard College Head Coach Earl Diddle described the Lady Hawks, who have struggled to establish dominance since Western Junior College Athletic Conference play began.

However, on Saturday, HC may have found their rhythm against one of the best team in the conference, defeating South Plains College 54-52 in gritty fashion.

“I'm really proud of the way they came back,” Diddle said. “They did a great job defensively, they rebounded the ball — their spirit in the second half was really good.”

Forsan's Horton, Roman sign with Arlington Baptist College

February 9, 2013

FORSAN — A pair of Forsan student-athletes — P.J. Horton and Brendan Roman — signed letters of intent to attend Arlington Baptist College on Friday. Roman will be on the private, four-year school's track and field squad, while Horton plans to run track and cross country.

Both seniors are excited to take their athletic ability to the collegiate level.

“I chose Arlington Baptist because they told me I would run. I won't have to redshirt. I will be running my freshmen year and the coaches told me if I'm in the top seven on the team, I will go to nationals.”

Steers stomp Stangs, girls fall in thriller to Sweetwater

February 9, 2013

Big Spring

Boys

A few weeks ago, not too many people expected much out of the Steers, who seemed befuddled on the court from the start of District 4-3A, which they opened with four straight losses.

But Head Coach Cliff Thompson insisted it was just a phase his squad was going through while they found their identity.
Apparently, they found it.

Big Spring has won four of their last six games, including a thrilling win over Greenwood last week and Friday's season-ending, 74-54 rout of Sweewater.

Howard College teams rout Clarendon to wrap up road stint

February 8, 2013

CLARENDON — The Lady Hawks came away with a 66-50 road win against Clarendon College in what Head Coach Earl referred to as “a pivotal game”.

“I was really impressed with the way we came out and played,” Diddle said of his squad's performance. “They played well defensively and really had no mental lapses even though Clarendon is a tough team to play against. They are very unorthodox.”

HC led the Lady Bulldogs by 12 at the halfway mark, who pulled within eight in the second half of play, but couldn't complete the rally and fell short in the final minutes of play.

Nunez signs with WTAMU

February 7, 2013

Before Big Spring senior Chris Nunez signed his letter of intent to play football at West Texas A&M University in front of a foyer packed with family, friends and classmates, Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Phillip Ritchey had a few remarks about his success.

Howard College hoops teams fall to Midland

February 5, 2013

MIDLAND — The Howard College women had a chance to avenge their Jan. 7 home loss to Midland College on Monday, but the Lady Chaparrals hung on to edge the Hawks 63-61 despite a strong effort on the road.

“I thought we played really well defensively,” HC Head Women's Coach Earl Diddle said. “We did a good job on their All-American, Achiri Ade, and we were in a good position to win the game, but you've got missed free throws, missed blockouts — that's how you get beat.”

Hawk men, women rout Frank Phillips College

February 1, 2013

Men
BORGER — Continuing their four-game road trip, the Hawks visited Frank Phillips College on Thursday where they picked up another conference win, downing the Plainsmen 94-69.

That puts the Hawks in the top of the pack, where they are battling New Mexico Junior College, Odessa College, South Plains College and Midland College for conference supremacy.

“We're all kind of bunched up,” Howard College Head Coach Mark Adams said.

The Plainsmen were overwhelmed from the start.

Cameron Forte scored a game-high 29 points for the Hawks, who led FPC by 18 at the half.
