The Howard College Hawks Softball Team is on their way to the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Regional Tournament that is scheduled for May 4th through May 6th. "We are in the playoffs, it's just going to be a matter of whether we're going to be the 1 or 2 seed and it comes down to this weekend at Frank Phillips and Clarendon College," says Hawks Head Softball Coach Kelly Raines tells us more.
Clarendon College and Howard College both have a record of 21 -3. Both teams will be competing against different colleges today – Howard will play Frank Phillips College and Clarendon will play Western Texas College. More than likely, the Hawks will be playing against Clarendon for the 1st seed spot tomorrow afternoon.
According to Coach Raines the if they split with Clarendon tomorrow, then both, Howard and Clarendon, will tie for Co-Conference Champions, and Clarendon would receive the 1 seed at the Regional tournament. If the Hawks win all games this weekend, they’ll be name the outright Champions.
When asked how she felt the season has been building up this year, Coach Raines stated that due to the weather, the team didn’t have as many pre-season games as they normally do and it took them a little longer to figure some stuff out. She also went on to say, "Essentially, we need to take care of ourselves. We need to play like we can play. We think we're the best team in the conference, but we need to play like we are."
No. 14 COAHOMA 0, No. 16 CLYDE 1
MILES - The Bulldogettes will head into playoffs seeded second in District 5 3A after losing a hard fought game against the Clyde Lady Bulldogs 1-0 Monday in Miles.
Meeting for the second time in four days, the two co-district champions battled fiercely for seeding rights showing just how tough these two teams are this year.
Control of the game stayed on the pitcher's mound during all 7 innings of play. Both Coahoma’s MaKynlee Overton and Clyde’s Kaitlyn Turner didn’t give an inch to batters evident in the hit count. Coahoma had 3 hits over 7 innings. Clyde only had one but it was enough to determine the outcome of the game.
Heading into the bottom of the 7th, Jacie Roberts singled on the first pitch and later scored the winning run after fellow teammate Petyon Lee hit a sacrifice fly ball to right field. Leading the Bulldogettes at bat were Caitlyn Corley, Kamri Kemper, and Overton, who had the only double in the game for either team.
On the mound, Overton allowed 1 run from 1 hit and struck out three. She earned 47 strikes from 70 pitches and faced 21 batters.
Next: Coahoma will face Bangs at 7 p.m. Friday at San Angelo Central Softball field.

Bulldogettes win 5 3A District co-championship
The Coahoma Bulldogettes walked onto the Clyde softball field Friday knowing they were about to play the best team in District 5 3A. The Lady Bulldogs were undefeated in the district and most of their wins were with double digit runs.
At the end of the game, the Coahoma girls left the field with a 9-1 victory and clinched a slice of the 5 3A District Championship.
“We know what Clyde is good at. They are a solid team,” said Bulldogettes Head Coach Alex Orosco. “To give ourselves a chance, we had to put the ball in play. That was the emphasis. Put the ball in play. I think we did it.”
Overall, Orosco said his team played well at all areas of the game and is now turning his attention towards the playoff season.
“We haven't reached our peak,” he said. “If we continue to climb there is no team in the state that can stop us. We have six more times to prove it.”
It was a pitchers battle throughout the game with only one run scored through four innings and that by a Lady Bulldog Then the Bulldogette fifth inning offensive onslaught began with an out of the park homerun by MaKynlee Overton and ended with another out of the park homerun by Cassie Grant. In between, the Bulldogettes scored 9 runs to walk away with the co-championship.
Also playing crucial roles in the fifth were Jaydan Mann with 3 RBI, Lexi Montelongo and Macee Grant, who both earned an RBI a piece.
Grant led the Bulldogettes at bat. She went 2-for-4 with 2 runs and 2 RBI. Montelongo followed going 2-for-4 with 1 run and 1 RBI
Overton gets the win. She went seven innings, allowed 1 run over 6 hits and threw 8 strikeouts.
Next: Coahoma will face Clyde again on Monday in Miles to settle the seeding for the playoffs.

Earlier today, Stephen Mackey, Founder of 2Words Character Development, spoke to numerous Big Spring ISD student athletes at the ATC. 2Words Character Development is a character development system in which they partner with athletic departments across the United States to help them create and implement an intentional character development plan for their athletic department with the goal of connecting the dots between sports and life. Mackey stated that in doing so, it helps to create not only champions but also better people who will be able to carry success to other areas of their life off the field as well.
“Every week a character trait of the week is defined and described by two words, and those two words becomes a pneumonic and a theme for the week that coaches and athletes can use during the week and can draw back on in difficult times or in situations as they move forward in life they can always draw back on the anchor point of those two words,” says Mackey.
During his speech, Mackey stressed to the athletes that they are the most powerful person in their world because they have the power to make their own choices. He noted that making the right choices every day, again and again, eventually lead to these little choices adding up to success. If they can do this on the field, they can carry this success over into other aspects of their life.
Big Spring High School Athletic Director Mitch McLemore stated that he reached out to Mackey on a recommendation from another coach at the district meeting. The athletic program has been using the 2Word curriculum for the past 4 weeks, and the kids have been responding extremely well to the program.
“I felt that the presentation was really motivational to us because it’s coming from someone who’s really been through it,” said C.J. Harris, a Sophomore at BSHS who plays football, basketball, and runs track.
Harris took advantage of the opportunity to meet Mackey and told KBest News that he’s a fan of Mackey’s 2Word Character Development program. When asked what he likes about it, he stated, “It shows you that you don’t have to grow up in the best home to be successful, and I respect that.”
Mackey is a first-generation college graduate who’s earned a Bachelors of Science in Recreation Parks and Tourism Science with a Youth Development emphasis from Texas A&M University, and a Masters Degree in Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary. He is a character development coach, motivational speaker, and a husband and father. Mackey’s West Texas tour continued on with Seminole this afternoon and will lead to Lubbock tomorrow.

Robert "Bob" Miller, the 72-year-old local Big Spring attorney, competed in the NASTAR (National Standard Race) National Championship in Squaw Valley, California last month. He competed along side with his daughter, Paula Valli Gilheany of Round Rock, a Big Spring High School graduate of the Class of 1986. Miller competed in the Male 70-74 category, and Gilheany competed in the Female 45-49 category.
Rainy weather that occurred in Squaw Valley on Wednesday, March 21st, kept skiers off the mountain on Thursday, and on Friday, March 23rd, only the bottom half of the mountain was open because the ski lift could not be used.
Miller had a reported time of 25.21 seconds on his first run on Friday, and he stated that his skis end up slipping out from under him on the second run, causing him to crash into a gate. He stated that he had not been injured, but was thankful that he was wearing a helmet.
On Saturday, March 24th, Miller decided to take his time and ensure that he completed his race safely. Even though he didn't medal this year, he was happy to return home without injury.
His daughter, Gilheany, had placed 3rd in her age group.
