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.

Vernon ends BSHS volleyball's season in playoffs

November 3, 2010

ALBANY — The Big Spring volleyball team's season is over.

The Lady Steers were in a long, hard-fought battle all night in their bi-district playoff game against Vernon, but the Lady Lions prevailed in five set 25-20, 19-25, 15-25, 30-28, 15-9.

This match had all the twists and turns one could handle. Vernon got the advantage early, especially in the first set. The Lady Lions held on to the lead the whole set, while service errors and Vernon's persistence caused problems for the Lady Steers.

Ready to Roll: With no play-in game, rest, Lady Steers confident about playoffs

November 2, 2010

Excuse the Big Spring volleyball team for feeling like its in uncharted territory — or at least territory the Lady Steers haven't been in for a while.

No play-in game to get into the playoffs. Check. Some much-needed rest before the playoffs. Check. No defending state champion waiting to pounce the Lady Steers in the bi-district round. Check.

All that has Big Spring feeling like it has a chance to go deep in the playoffs this season, as opposed to last year. It starts with Vernon at 6:30 p.m. today at Albany High School in Albany.

Howard College women thrash LCU JV 114-44

November 2, 2010

Porsche Young felt like all freshmen women's basketball players should during their first collegiate game.

“I was excited and nervous,” the guard from Oklahoma City said. “I came out and my hands were sweating. But it was fun, it was a good experience.”

Young might have said she was nervous, but she didn't play like it.
The freshman shined in the Howard College Hawks' season-opening win over Lubbock Christian Junior Varsity 114-44 with 25 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.

Midland, Howard College top NJCAA DI Men's Basketball Preseason Rankings

October 30, 2010

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Since 2005, NJCAA's Region 5/District 5 has won three national titles and appeared in four championship games.
Thus, it is no wonder why the top two programs from Region 5 top this year's NJCAA Division I Men's Basketball Preseason Poll.

Midland College, which won the 2007 title and was runner-up in 2009, and defending national champion Howard College come into this season ranked No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, which is just par for the course.

Batla was 13-of-20 for 229 yards and six scores.
The Bearkats finish the regular season at Sierra Blanca.

GARDEN CITY 101, RANKIN 53

Grady falls to Borden County

October 30, 2010

GAIL — Borden County defeated Grady this week, but the Wildcats will be the Coyotes' biggest cheerleaders next week.

The 64-38 loss at Borden County gave the Wildcats their first district loss this season. The Wildcats need Borden County to beat Sands in Week 10 next week to clinch a playoff spot. If Sands win, then it comes down to point differential, something Grady head coach Brad Cox hopes to avoid.

Stanton clinches playoff spot, Forsan falls to 1-4 in district play

October 30, 2010

STANTON — With a playoff spot on the line, the Stanton Buffaloes took care of business.

Stanton's 42-20 win over Forsan Friday in Stanton clinched a playoff spot for head coach John Peterson's squad. The Buffs earned the last spot right behind Idalou and Coahoma (those two teams play for a possible share of the district title next week). Stanton will finish up at Anson in Week 10.

“This is one of the goals we've had all year,” Peterson said. “Of course, we want to finish it out with another victory against Anson. This puts us in the playoffs, now we'll finish out the season next week.”

Buffs vs. Buffs: Stanton hosts Forsan

October 29, 2010

No one for Stanton is paying attention to Forsan's 61-0 loss to Idalou and 56-0 loss to Coahoma the past two weeks.

Stanton head coach John Peterson knows when the Forsan Buffaloes get a shot at his Buffaloes, the same team that took those two losses won't be on the field. Forsan will be better than its record shows, he said.

“It's a rivalry game,” Peterson said. “We were both in Class A together the last couple of years. I know the Forsan are going to get up to play for us.

Gardner, seniors push Coahoma to playoffs

October 29, 2010

COAHOMA — Coahoma has always been home for head coach Trey Gardner. When the alumnae was hired in June, he let it be known that not much had changed.

“Somebody when they first hired me said, 'Welcome to being a Bulldog,'” he said. “I told them, 'I've been a Bulldog for a very, very long time.' I never quit being a Bulldog.”

With that proclamation in mind, it's only fitting Gardner is the coach to get the Bulldogs back in the playoffs after two consecutive 5-5 seasons.

Steers use bye week to work on fundamentals

October 29, 2010

The Big Spring Steers have gone back to basics on their off week. No preparation for Snyder, no injuries to worry about, no pondering on the loss at Abilene Wylie, just the basics.

It's worked out well for head coach Phillip Ritchey and the Steers, too.
Ritchey said this week has given the Steers a chance to bring players from the freshman and junior varsity teams into practice, with the goal being to expose the younger players to what goes on in a varsity practice.
It's somewhat new for the Steers, Ritchey said, but something coaches want to be able to do often.
