Local High School Freshman to Compete in First Professional Jiu Jitsu Competition Alongside of his Father

Big Spring High School Freshman, Mekhi “Khi” Castillo, will be competing in his first professional fight in the Fight2Win PRO 46, which is a professional Jiu Jitsu competition, in San Antonio this weekend on September 9th.  The event is set up like a caged match, much like what you would see in a televised MMA fight, but there is no striking involved – basically submission wrestling. The goal of the competition is to submit your opponent without striking.


Khi began his training with the Warlord MMA child’s program, which is ran by his dad - Nathan Torres. The program that Khi began with was initiated by Nathan in order to give kids something positive to do and to learn how to defend themselves. Nathan stated that sometimes kids come in and just want to learn how to defend themselves in order to get rid of a bully and then they don’t continue with the program, but Khi has been training since he was 9 years old.


Khi also has an older sister who has competed in professional competitions as well, but never thought that he would be competing in a similar competition at this age. When asked how he felt when he found out that he had been chosen to compete in Fight2 Win PRO 46, Khi said that he didn’t believe it until he saw the announcement for himself.


Since Khi’s father, Nathan, and sister have competed in professional competitions before and Nathan was also selected to compete in the event, one would think that Khi must be naturally gifted and that it may have come easy for the 14-year-old, but Nathan expressed that was not the case.


“He’s won gold medals and tournaments, but it didn’t start off that way. People don’t understand that it’s a process," says Khi's father, Nathan. 


Khi lost a lot in the beginning but he didn’t give up and over time a change in his attitude could be seen even when he wasn’t competing, which eventually lead to victories during his competitions.


When asked how he felt as a father to see his son and daughter competing in competitions of this caliber, he stated, "It's a little nerve-wrecking, but since I've done it so much I understand the experience and I can talk them and help them feel more confident. I really think that's a big part of how they do so well because I've been there before in every aspect of the game and I can be there to help calm them down before their match."


"It's a pretty big thing, you know, to see these kids being able to do something like that. You know, just something that they're gonna do for fun anyway and be able to make money doing it."


Nathan Torres still runs Warlord MMA Fitness and still competes. He also selected to compete in the Fight2Win 46 event this Saturday, and will be competing alongsid


First Home Match of the Season Ends After 5th Set in the Match - Big Spring Lady Steers v. Pecos

On Tuesday night the Big Spring Lady Steers had their first home match at Steers Gym against Pecos. 


After a hard fought first set, the Lady Steers turned over a 0-1 lead to their opponents, but came back in the second set, 25-23, to tie the game. During the third set of the match the Lady Steers started with a slow start and were not able to gain momentum quick enough to hold off the Pecos Eagles, however, the Lady Steers were able to make a come back in the fourth set to tie the match. In the fifth and last set of the match, the Lady Steers could not defeat the Eagles, leaving the final score 3-2. 


The Big Spring Lady Steers will travel to Frenship on Friday, August 26th to compete in the Frenship Tournament that will last through Saturday, August 27th.



Local Big Spring Resident to Compete in TSC New York Marathon in November

The TSC New York Marathon is 26.2 miles of course that runs through 5 boroughs of New York City and is currently the largest marathon in the world with a record amount of over 51,000 finishers in last year’s race alone. Local Big Spring resident, Mike Solis, is committed to taking part in the action this year! 


Solis said that one day he woke up and was inspired to run. He ran 9 miles that morning and decided to do a half-marathon. When he finished the half-marathon, he decided to compete in a full marathon. He participated in his first full marathon during the Austin Marathon back in February of this year.


Solis stated that he had only been training about four months before the marathon and that towards the end of the race he didn't think that he would be able to finish. Thankfully, his wife, Enchantra Solis, motivated him to continue and ran the last two miles of the marathon with him. When asked how it felt to cross the finish line, Solis said, "It was really breathtaking," and he had been excited that he was able to complete a marathon even though he didn't get the time he was hoping. 


Now Solis is less than 80 days away from the TSC New York Marathon that will take place on November 5th, 2017 and he's extremely confident that he's better prepared this time around. He's been training for almost a year and now that it's crunch time Solis trains with an intense workout five days per week.


When asked what advice he has for anyone who’s intimidated to go after their dream of competing in something similar to this Solis said, "Have the right mind-set. You're not going for time. You're looking to finish. That was my goal at first, just to finish. That's what I say to people who are going to try it out. If you don't succeed, try again. Just keep going toward your goal."

Team KBest takes on the 10th Annual Comanche Warrior Triathlon

The 10th Annual Comanche Warrior Triathlon brought regular competitors as well as attracted a group of newcomers. The variety of particpants ranged in different levels of fitness and ages, with the oldest competitor being a 71 year-old woman named Jo Schmidt who traveled in from Albuqurque, New Mexico. 


The first one to cross the finish line was Gage Bonestroo with a time of approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, followed by Bobby Gonzales, a regular competitor, who came in second.


Team KBest competed in the event this year for the first time and earned a bronze medal for the 3rd place team, with a completion time of 2 hours and 18 minutes. This was the first year that KBest Media had a team to compete in the event and it was made up of team members: Mark Richardson, Operations Manager - swim; Malinda Flenniken, Mananging Partner - bike ride; and Alesha Kay Yanez-Fischer, Production Director, rounding out the end with a run.


The trio began training for the event 8 weeks ago and all put in a tremendous amount of effort which resulted in smashing the personal goal they each had set for themselves. Flenniken, was noted to have reduced her riding time from 2 hours down to 1 hour and 25 minutes. 


When asked how they felt after completing their first triathlon, Richardson spoke for the group and said, "The important thing is that we feel like we completed something that we started. It was a lofty goal that we weren't actually sure that we could do when we started, but today we proved that we could. We worked together as a team and loved it!"


The Comanche Warrior Triathlon was made up a 500 meter open water swim in Comanche Trail Lake, a 30K bike ride on city and county roads to the highest elevation in Howard County, and a 5K run on a closed course that had some hills. The regular competitors who come back every year say that it's a beautiful course with favorable topography.



10th Annual Comanche Warrior Triathlon to be Held this Weekend

The 10th Annual Comanche Warrior Triathlon will take place tomorrow at Comanche Trail Park. The triathlon will have 3 events: 500-meter open swim in Comanche Trail Lake, a 30K bike ride out and back on city and county roads to one of the highest elevations in Howard County, and a 5k run that will be a loop completed on closed trails and roads in Comanche Trail Park with a few good hills.


Hayley Herrera, Tourism Coordinator at the Big Spring Visitors Bureau, stated that as of now there are very few people from Big Spring that have signed up for the event and the vast majority are people from out of town. This event has been so successful that it brings in regular competitors every year, Herrera stated that runners love the topography, the open water swim, and beauty of the Comanch Trail Park.


You can still register online today for a discounted price of $65 for individuals and $110 for teams. If you wait to register on Saturday at the event, the price will increase to $75 for individuals and $125 for teams. You can also register in person at Dora Roberts Community Center today from 5 AM to 8 PM. There will also be an opportunity to practice the open water swim from 6 PM to 8 PM in the Comanche Trail Lake.


On Saturday, the entrances to Comanche Trail Park will be closed from 7 AM to 1 PM for the triathlon, so participants and spectators will need to be inside the park before 7 AM. Golfers are asked to use the Parkway St. entrance to the Golf Course during this time.
