Emory highlights WJCAC honors for Howard College

March 10, 2011

The Howard College Hawks are well-represented as the Western Junior College Athletic Conference honors were announced this week.

Probably the highest honor for Howard was Carlos Emory being named MVP of the conference. Shavon Coleman, Corey Stern and Joe Bright all earned honorable mention.

With little time left on the clock and the Hawk needing a big shot, Emory was often the go-to guy. The most memorable shot the sophomore took is probably the 3-pointer that gave the Hawks the lead at Midland College with 15 seconds left.

BSHS baseball takes care of Brownfield

March 9, 2011

It wasn’t exactly a night full of offense for Brownfield and Big Spring in their matchup Tuesday at Steer Park.

Big Spring third baseman Jacob Acosta changed all that with one swing, though.

Acosta’s three-run RBI double sparked a five-run third inning as the Steers went on to beat the Cubs 12-2 in five innings.

The Steers were up 3-1 before Acosta’s blast to left field, but they hadn’t had an extra base hit. Ascota’s double went past the Brownfield left-fielder and Gunnar Kennedy, Jared Deporto and Max Pappajohn were sent home. The Steers went from a 3-1 lead to an 8-1 lead.

Season ends for Sands, GCHS, Stanton

March 3, 2011

POST — Starting fast was key for the Garden City Bearkats against No. 10 Ira in Wednesday’s regional quarterfinal.
The exact opposite happened.
“We picked a great time of the year to play our absolute worst quarter of basketball, worst half of basketball,” GCHS Koby Abney said. “I don’t think we were overwhelmed by the moment, but we just didn’t play well. You can’t do that in the quarterfinals. There are no bad teams.”
The Bearkats struggled early on the way to a 69-50 loss Wednesday in Post, ending their playoff run.

Area softball: BSHS wins, Coahoma, Forsan fall

March 2, 2011

Big Spring softball head coach John Sparks believes Jillian Valle is his go-to hitter right now.

She proved why that may be the case Tuesday afternoon.

Valle’s game-winning home run in the seventh inning pushed the Lady Steers past Greenwood, 6-5 at home Tuesday.

It was her second home run of the game. She finished the day going 3 for 3 with three RBIs.

Sparks said Valle was as clutch as she could be. The Lady Steers were on their last out when Valle hit the bomb.

Kennedale ends Steers’ playoff run

February 26, 2011

BRECKENRIDGE — The Big Spring Steers were hanging on by a thread for most of Friday’s Class 3A area championship game against No. 4 Kennedale.

The Wildcats couldn’t exactly put the Steers away early and the Steers couldn’t seriously make a game out of it.

But like elite teams do, Kennedale wore down Big Spring on the way to a 74-43 win, ending the Steers’ season.

Steers face No. 4 Kennedale in area championship game

February 25, 2011

The Big Spring Steers are trying not to put too much pressure on themselves as today’s area championship matchup against No. 4 Kenndale at 8 p.m. in Breckenridge approaches.

After the Steers won Tuesday’s bi-district playoff game against Bowie, head coach Cliff Thompson mentioned if Big Spring beats Kennedale, there won’t be any movies made labeling it as the greatest upset of all time.
The message has been simple: Don’t be nervous, just believe.

Both Howard men, women headed to postseason

February 25, 2011

Howard College women’s basketball head coach Earl Diddle clearly was in a better mood by the end of Thursday night than he was before the regular season finale against Frank Phillips College started.

At one point, all he knew was New Mexico Junior College and Odessa College needed to lose and his team had to win if the Hawks wanted to return to the Region V Tournament. They could only control the latter.

However, with all the odds in the world against them, the Hawks took care of business and so did New Mexico and Odessa’s opponents. By the end of the night, Diddle was a happy man.
