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.
Steers win season opener in dramatic fashion with a 41-yard "Hail Mary" pass in the end zone as time expires.
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.

Hawks drop Region 5 championship to Cisco

May 17, 2012

LUBBOCK — It wasn't exactly how Howard College Head Baseball Coach Britt Smith wanted the season to end, but as he pointed out after the Hawks' 5-2 loss to the Cisco College Wranglers on Wednesday, “These guys went 91-25 in two years. That's .800 baseball — you can't ask for much better than that.”

One bad inning — the top of the second — would come back to haunt the Hawks as the normally dependable starting pitcher Logan Ehlers and the defense gave up five Cisco runs on five hits, a walk and an error.

“(Ehlers) was on short rest,” Smith said. “He didn't have the same velocity.”

Mayes signs with Oklahoma Wesleyan University

May 10, 2012

When introducing Diamond Mayes to the crowd who gathered to watch her sign a letter of intent to play basketball at Oklahoma Wesleyan University, Big Spring High School Athletic Director Phillip Ritchey said “Diamond (Mayes) is what all Big Spring Steers — Lady Steers should be like.”

Mayes, who has played on the varsity basketball team for four years, as well as other sports, received a full scholarship to OWU.

What drew Mayes to the school was the similarities between there and Big Spring.

Hawks down WTC in opener

May 4, 2012

LUBBOCK — The Howard College Hawks and the Western Texas College Westerners aren't exactly strangers passing in the night.

The two have met four times this year in Western Junior College Athletic Conference play, in which WTC was outscored by the Hawks 37-3.

A turnaround wasn't in the cards for the Westerners on Thursday, as they found themselves on the short end of an 8-0 ball game in the Hawks' regional championship opener.

Steers take Game One of bi-district

May 4, 2012

MINERAL WELLS — There is no telling how deep into the playoffs the Big Spring Steers baseball squad could go this season, but if they maintain their current pace, it may be a few more weeks before the fans run out of games to attend.

BSHS Coach Bert Otto said prior to the bi-district series opener that he believed his team could compete with Iowa Park in the playoffs.

He was right.

The Steers took the first game by a score of 5-1 and will head into Game Two with the all-important momentum any coach would like when squaring off against the region's best.

Coahoma captures bi-district trophy

May 1, 2012

SEMINOLE — The rain held off and the wind picked up just enough to cool the crowd who traveled to see the Coahoma Bulldogettes on Monday in their bi-district matchup against the Ladyjackets of Kemit.

Coahoma — who entered the postseason as the third District 3-2A seed — found themselves trailing 2-1 in the bottom of the third when Bree Hilario bunted and reached safely after Kermit's first basemen bobbled the ball. Laurel Nix hit a one-out single that scored Hilario, who had stolen second and third base, tying the game at 2-all.
