The Coahoma varsity volleyball squad honored their two seniors Saturday morning before the last home game of the season.
Escorted by their parents onto the gym floor, seniors Maykala Overton and Chloe’ Starr received bouquets of flowers, presents, and hugs from their fellow teammates to honor them during senior appreciation day. Both girls are four-year varsity members.
“This is always a bittersweet moment for me,” said Head Coach Christina Cox. “I am so proud they will be moving on, but they will be missed next year. Maykala and Chloe’ have been integral players on our team for years. I am proud of them and hope the best for them in the years to come.”
Following the brief ceremony, the Bullogettes took the floor to face off against the Clyde Lady Bulldogs. Coahoma lost in three sets, (14,25) (9,25), and (13,25).
The Lady Bulldogs started strong getting the first two points on the board for the first set. An error cost Clyde the ball. Coahoma capitalized on the error by adding a second point from a kill by No. 6 Maykala Overton with No. 2 Julia Mashburn serving. That tied the game at 2,2.
During a long rally No. 3, Julia Cox saved the team with a dig from the floor to keep the ball in play. Coahoma was able to get the ball over the net when a Clyde player hit it out.
Coahoma moved into the lead for the next three rallies with No. 1 Naughtia Rockwell serving before Clyde went on a 12 point run. The Lady Bulldogs put away the game with an ace ending the set at (14,25).
In the second set, Coahoma started strong early on building a lead of (6,1). With No. 6 Maykala Overton serving, the Bulldogettes went on a 5 point score run before Clyde rallied back. The Lady Dogs then dominated the rest of the game which ended at (9,25).
At the beginning of the third set, No. 6 Maykala Overton struck quickly spiking the ball over to get a kill and put the first point on the board. However Clyde slowly built up a strong lead all throughout the game. The Lady Bulldogs dominated serving 23 times compared to Coahoma’s 13, but the Bulldogettes refused to give up quietly. At game point, Coahoma fought hard adding three points before Clyde could end the game at 13,25.
In junior varsity action, JV Red and JV White also lost to Clyde.

Coahoma’s No. 33 Isaac Murillo caught a Hail Mary pass from No. 7 Colt Redden and turned it into a touchdown run as the game clock ticked down to zero, but the score wasn’t enough to beat the Idalou Wildcats in junior varsity pigskin play.
The Bulldogs lost to the Wildcats 12,32 at Bulldog Stadium Thursday night.
Idalou dominated the first half of the game putting 12 up on the board in the first quarter but failed both times at the two-point conversion.

During the first half of the game, Coahoma’s No. 4 Steven Erives ran both 17-yard and 18-yard plays to help the Dogs out.

During the fourth quarter, Idalou struck again with a touchdown and this time - for the first time of the night - completed the two-point conversion making the score 6,32.
After getting possession of the ball, the Bulldogs worked their way up the field battling the Wildcats before Redden threw the Hail Mary pass. However, the Bulldogs were not able to complete the two-point conversion.

The Big Spring Tennis Team won a hard-fought victory against the Snyder Tigers 10-6 last night at Figure 7 Tennis Center to advance to the Team Tennis playoffs. Big Spring will next play Wichita Falls Hirschi in Abilene on Tuesday at Rose Park Tennis Center.
Big Spring opened with a dominating performance in doubles, taking six of seven matches to jump to a 6-1 lead. Snyder proved a little better on the singles side on the night and came roaring back before Big Spring’s Nick Gomez clinched the 10th and deciding match.
“I was a little nervous going into the match. We had just lost one of our top boys to grades, so we had to move almost everyone up in the lineup and juggle the doubles teams a little bit. Before the match, the Snyder coach and I agreed this match would be a coin-flip.
I told our players that every match would count and every match was important. It turned out to be exactly right. They came through when they had to. I was very proud of our performance,” says Dana Jones, Coach for Big Spring ISD Tennis.
