Bulldogettes beat San Angelo TLCA, 09-01-2020


Any worries Coahoma Head Volleyball Coach Jamie Bonner may have had about her team being out of practice after two weeks off from competition were put to rest Tuesday night.

The Bulldoggetes played like a well-oiled machine beating San Angelo TLCA in three sets —  25-19, 25-23, 25-15.

 

“I talked to them about being off,” Bonner said. “I told them we can’t let not having a game or two or three games stall us with what we want to achieve. They responded really well.

 

“The overall leadership from our seniors was a major factor in our win tonight,” she continued.”They kept us going and kept the momentum going on our side. The overall athleticism shown by this team, their all-out heart and hustle by all of our kids, is making the difference.” 

 

Both teams played a hard-hitting, physically aggressive game for the first two sets. All evening the Bulldogettes were hawkish in blocking or chasing down attack shots with one thing in mind. Keep the ball alive.

 

Coahoma took an early lead in all three sets although the Lady Eagles stayed in the game keeping the score close in the first two matches. By the third set, the Bulldogettes built up a 10-point advantage by the time the Lady Eagles began a second-half rally. Coahoma ended the match earning three points in a row with Christian Everett serving. 

 

Everett had one ace for the evening. MaKynlee Overton led the Bulldogettes with seven kills, four blocks, and five digs. Julia Cox had six kills and Zoie Joslin had 19 assists.

 

Since returning to the court this after sitting out last season because of an injury, Ashley Romero has been an all-around player for the Bulldogettes.

 

“Since day one when she set foot on the court this year, she has worked her tail off,” Bonner said. “She played extremely well tonight. She showed out for us — getting her hands on the ball, bocking for us. She was an all around player tonight. She did a phenomenal job.”

 

Romero, who had five kills and three blocks for the game, said she was just glad to be back on the court. 

 

“I love being part of my team,” she said. “I love how we are working together and I missed the excitement.”

 

And she is hoping to cap off her senior year with a long season.

 

“How we are playing and how we are playing as a family, it feels amazing,” she said. “That is how every team should play - as a family. We all have fun both in practice and on the court.”

 

Now the Bulldogettes will turn their eyes south towards Grape Creek on Saturday for a rematch against the Lady Eagles, who gave Coahoma its only loss of the season.  

 

“Last time, they did a lot of tipping,” Bonner said. “We are going to do a lot of tip coverage for the rest of the week in practice. We are used to teams that constantly hit the ball. Grape Creek saw that was a weakness of ours, so they tipped a lot. We also didn’t play our best offense when we played them last. I told them let’s celebrate this win, but our focus is on Saturday.” 

 

JV Bulldogettes vs TLCA: White lost in two sets: 17-25, 12-25. Red lost in three: 16-25, 25-21, 23-25.  

 

Next: Coahoma (5-1) at Grape Creek on Saturday. JV White plays at 10 a.m. followed by JV Red at 11 p.m. The varsity game begins at noon. Tickets must be purchased in advance. Ticket sales are at https://www.grapecreekisd.net/apps/pages/TICKETS

 

Coahoma DEF. TLCA - San Angelo: 25-19, 25-23, 25-15

Bulldogettes split Sweetwater Dual, 08-15-2020


SWEETWATER —Bulldogettes will be focusing on defensive basics when they return to practice this week after their latest match, but head coach Jamie Bonner is pleased with how her volleyball team is shaping up this season.

 

The Coahoma team earned its first loss of the preseason to Grape Creek — 21-25, 25-18, 11-15 — and won against 4A Sweetwater — 26-24, 21-25, 15-13 — in a dual match hosted by the Lady Mustangs on Saturday.

 

The Bulldogettes made some costly defensive errors during their first set against the Lady Eagles, but were able to recover to win the second set. In the last set, the Bulldogettes made a late-in-the-game rally to pull within three points before Grape Creek ended the match with a kill. 

 

“One big thing they did to us is that they tipped the ball a lot, and we were standing back ready for a hit. We couldn’t adjust and move our feet in time,” Bonner said. “Another issue for us was being in the correct defensive position quick enough. We are definitely going to go back and work on those fundamentals.”

 

Kenzi Canales led Coahoma in the final push of the Grape Creek game sending over some powerful serves to Lady Eagles side for the last three Bulldogette points. Stepping into the team’s Libero position, the Coahoma High School senior has added an additional level of depth to the Bulldogettes’ defensive arsenal. 

 

“She worked so hard in the summer,” Bonner said. “Summer workouts were off and on, but she was there every day and continued to work, and she has stepped up her leadership skills this year. Also, I think that just translates to our physical play on the court.”

 

Quickly shaking off the loss, the girls turned around to face a tough second match against the Sweetwater Lady Mustangs. With the powerful arms of seniors Julia Cox, Ashley Romero, and MaKynlee Overton, Coahoma left the floor with a two-set to one victory. 

 

Combined stats for the two games show Cox led the Bulldogettes with 10 kills followed by Romero with nine and Overton had eight. 

 

Led by four senior starters, the Coahoma team still has plenty of talent from its younger players to draw from. Sophomore Zoie Joslin, who returned as the team’s go-to setter, had 16 assists for the match. Freshman Isabella Cox had five kills and an ace and her classmate Sophie Biddison got two kills and two aces. 

 

“It feels really good, and it feels good to the girls, to know that we have nine players who can all step up at any time and play any position because of their overall athleticism,” Bonner said. “That’s huge for us to have people who can step in no matter what the situation is, and I have faith they can get it done.”

 

After more than five months and an interrupted summer workout program caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the return to competition has been welcomed by both Coahoma athletes and their coaches. 

 

It also means getting used to following new UIL Covid-19 guidelines. 

 

“It’s been weird getting used to the mask, but they have adjusted well,” Bonner said. “I thought not being able to switch sides might have affected us. It’s all mental as far as what side you are on anyway, but so far, I don’t think that has affected us in any way. We are just excited that we get to play. Every day that we get to play, I tell them we are just going to work hard and have fun. You never know how long it will last.”

 

JV Bulldogettes volleyball action: JV White fell in both games at the Sweetwater dual. JV Red went 2-0.

 

Next: The Coahoma varsity Bulldogettes (3-1) hosts Lubbock Estacado for their home opener at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday. JV White plays at 4:30 p.m., JV Red’s game starts at 5:30 p.m. All games are held at the Coahoma Elementary School competition gym on the Kim Nichols gym floor.

Local Sisters Step Up to Spread the Joy of Softball by Volunteering with BSGSA


This year’s COVID-19 pandemic impacted every aspect of life from businesses to recreational activities. 

 

Johnny DeLeon, President of the Big Spring Girls Softball Association, told KBest News that due to COVID-19, BSGSA had lost both sets of 6 & Under coaches that serve ages 4-6 just a week before this year’s delayed season began. After asking all parents of the players involved if anyone would volunteer to coach, DeLeon said that it appeared no one was going to step up to fill the positions, but then two step-sisters, 19-year-old Gabriella Medina and 14-year-old Lexus Lozano reached out to them and volunteered to take the teams. Both girls have played multiple years with BSGSA, but currently have no ties to any of the existing players, merely the love of the game. 

 

Medina told KBest News that they had both helped their dad coach soccer when their schedules allowed for it and were compelled to coach the young group of girls.

 

“We wanted these kids to have a chance to play, just like we did before,” said Medina.

 

Lozano also advised that she had sustained an injury earlier this year that prevented her from playing this year, but loves softball so much that she still wanted to put her heart on the field with the kids. 

 

With the small group of kids, these ladies held practices together and played 4-on-4 games. The ladies not only coached, but also recruited assistant coaches, such as Abigail Bose and one of the parents. The coaches experienced struggles throughout the season, but were able to find a support system with the parents and pulled off a great experience for their players.

 

When asked what lessons they took away from the experience, Medina stated that everyone should be grateful for volunteers.

 

“It kinda opened my eyes to see what really went into it, from getting snacks for the kids, to the water, to being there early, which is kinda hard for me,” Medina laughed. “It was just something nice to do.” She also stated that she learned that it takes time and effort to volunteer, but it’s possible to make time for it.

 

“It brought so much joy to my face to see kids experience what I got to experience, and knowing that they couldn’t experience that if we hadn't picked [the teams] up,” added Lozano.

 

Lexus Lozano is a freshman at Coahoma High School. Gabriella Medina is a 2019 graduate of Big Spring High School and will be a sophomore at Texas State University this fall.

2nd Annual Midnight Madness in Coahoma


 

The Bulldogs kicked off their season late Sunday night / early Monday morning with their second annual Midnight Madness!

 

At precisely 12:01 AM on August 3, 2020, after several intense protocol and safety meetings, the Coahoma Bulldogs took the field for their first organized practice since March.

 

When asked what he was hoping to accomplish through this year's Midnight Madness, Head Football Coach and Athletic Director for Coahoma ISD Chris Joslin told KBest News, "Most of these kids have been here all summer long and the goal tonight is to make sure that the guys are in shape. We got plenty of time between now and [game time]," said Coach Joslin.

 

"We just don’t want to rush into it and [want to] try our best to avoid any foolish injuries,” he continued.

 

Coach Joslin was of course not the only one ready to get the Bulldogs season underway. Senior Defensive End Collin Daniels spoke on behalf of his defense and stated, “We’re just trying to continue to build on what we had last year, and continuing to instill the ideals that the last class of seniors had instilled in us. Like trusting your coaching, and how to play real Coahoma Bulldog Football.”

 

Of course we can’t forget about that Bulldog offense! Senior Wide Receiver Tony Hagens told KBest News, “There’s a bar that was set this last season, and we have to try and break that.” He went on to say, “all we can do is work hard, and try to win football games.” Which, of course, could not have been said any better.

 

Unfortunately, the Bulldogs football practice was cut short due to weather, but not before KBest News was able to get one more question in with Junior running back Bryson Kerby about how he thought that his team's first practice went.

 

Kerby stated, "The guys were excited to be back and you could tell that everyone had that extra pep in their step. The intensity was there, and now it’s just time to capitalize on it.”

 

Dave Cambell has the Bulldogs picked to place third in the district this year and in the words of Senior Linebacker Patrick Gutierez, “It’s not about where your picked in August, but about how you play in September!”

CISD: The Boys & Girls are back


Coahoma ISD athletes will return to action on Monday to begin two-a-days after the UIL gave the go-ahead last week for Class 1A-4A programs to start the season on schedule.

 

“It’s exciting because now we have direction, and we are getting sports back,” said Chris Joslin Coahoma ISD Athletic Director and Head Football Coach. “It’s been a little stressful because we’ve been sitting here making plan after plan and not really knowing what the future holds. Now it’s time to get going and that’s good. We are all excited to get back to it.”

 

The Coahoma Bulldog football team will kick-off the season with a Midnight Madness practice at 12:01 a.m. Sunday night/Monday morning at the Bill Easterling Memorial Stadium. The stands will be open for spectators.

 

“That event went over well last year,” Joslin said. “Our kids are excited for the return of football and this gives them a cool, evening first practice.” 

 

Also returning on Aug 3, Bulldogettes volleyball players will report to the CES competition gym at 8:30 a.m. to begin two-a-days. 

 

Professional, college, and public school sports programs across the nation shut down back in early spring in hopes of slowing down the spread of Covid-19. 

 

By summer, UIL OK’d public school programs to hold conditioning programs under strict guidelines after the spread of the Coronavirus began to slow, but in June, summer workout programs were halted for a brief time in response to the surge of new Covid-19 cases in Texas.

 

Now with the resumption of sports, Joslin said the department will continue to strictly adhere to UIL Covid-19 guidelines as the program moves forward. 

 

“Even if we come to a point when the UIL drops those guidelines, we are going to continue to clean the weight room the way we’ve been doing it,” he said. “We are going to clean all the locker rooms the same way. We bought face shields for all the kids in athletics. We are doing everything we can to get our kids to competition days.” 

 

Cautious but optimistic is how Joslin described the attitude CISD coaches have in approaching the next few months.

 

 “We are going to deal with stuff,” Joslin said. “Every school is going to have to deal with students and faculty getting sick, but if they are going to let us go, we are going to do it but do it cautiously.

 

“I think the kids are ready,” he continued. “Our coaches are ready to go. They love sports, but the kids are the real reason why we are in this job. Our student athletes have been shut down since March, and they are ready to get back.”
