Bulldogettes finishes 3-2 at Falcon Fest tourney


The Coahoma Bulldogettes begin volleyball season with a 3-2 record after competing in the Falcon Fest Tournament hosted by Veribest ISD this past weekend.

 

Coahoma earned solid wins against McCamey, Paint Rock, and the San Angelo Central Freshman Blue team on Friday and lost against Crane and Fort Davis on Saturday. 

 

Overall, Bulldogette Head Coach Jamie Bonner said she is encouraged by her players performance in their first competitive setting. 

 

“We have a lot of learning to do, but we are also much further along this year than we were this same time last year,” Bonner said. “The advantage we have this year is that every single player is a hustler. They get out and work hard every day.”

 

Bonner added the majority of the players participated in summer conditioning and the results are showing on the court.

 

“You could tell on day one of two-a-day workouts who participated in summer conditioning,” Bonner said. “They are faster to the ball and their reflexes are sharper. It’s definitely going to pay off for us this year. I think we have one of the most athletic volleyball teams Coahoma has seen in a while.”

 

Over the two-day tournament, MaKynlee Overton led on offense racking up 21 kills followed by Caitlyn Corley with 18 and Kirah Kimball with 16. Standout freshman Zoie Joslin made 45 assists during the tournament. 

 

Next: The Bulldogettes travel to Lubbock on Tuesday to face off against the Estacado Lady Matadors in a non-district match. JV Red and White teams play at 5 p.m. while the varsity game begins at 6 p.m.

Hang Gliding Returns to Big Spring


Hang gliders will return to the skies over Big Spring next week. The Big Spring Nationals competition will take place at McMahon-Wrinkle Airport August 11 through 17.

 

This year’s event is part of a series of competitions to determine the 2019 U.S. National Hang Gliding Champion and is sanctioned by the U.S. Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association. It will also be the test event for next year’s 1st FAI Pan-American Hang Gliding Championships, sanctioned by the World Air Sports Federation.

 

The public is invited to watch the launch activity, which normally happens between noon and 1 PM, depending on the weather. Visitors can see the pilots getting ready and lining up, towing up behind ultralight airplanes, and circling above the airport to get high enough to start. It takes about an hour to get everyone into the air.

 

The City provides shaded bleachers at the McMahon-Wrinkle airport (enter through the terminal). There are restrooms inside the terminal, and there is usually food available for purchase before the launching starts. The airport is on the west side of town, near where Business 20 intersects with Interstate 20.

 

Belinda Boulter, Co-Organizer and Meet Director, explained that the competition is a race to a goal, with a different task announced at a briefing every morning. Daily tasks are designed to take three or four hours for the winner to complete, and often include turnpoints, so they might look like a dogleg or a zigzag or even a triangle. The longest task ever called at Big Spring was 215 miles, with five pilots making goal. But normal tasks are more commonly between 100 miles and 150 miles. During the competition the Terminal office usually has some information about daily activities: (432) 264-2362.

 

“There are two reasons we keep coming back to Big Spring: the weather, and the community,” said Boulter, noting that this will be the seventeenth year for this event. “There are very few places in the world with such consistent, excellent flying conditions. And the support of the community is unique — visitors from other regions or other countries are always amazed at the genuine welcome we find in Big Spring and will agree there's no place like it.” She pointed out that many local volunteers work hard to make the competition a success.

 

Ultralight Flights

Although tandem hang glider flights will not be available, it’s possible to take a flight in one of the Bailey-Moyes Dragonfly ultralight tow planes with designer Bobby Bailey. These flights take place in the early morning or the evening, before or after the other event activities and when the air is smoother. The price starts at $65 for a 15-mnute flight. All flying is weather-dependent, and reservations are advised: call Jim Prahl at 352-516-8618.

Bulldogs to kick off football workouts with Midnight Madness Practice


The community is encouraged to come out and support the Coahoma Bulldogs as they kick off football workouts starting with a Midnight Madness Practice Sunday night.


According to Coahoma ISD Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Chris Joslin, UIL rules allow programs to officially start practice on Monday Aug. 5, so the team will begin workouts at 12:01 a.m. 


“It’s the first practice. The players are going to have a lot of high energy, so why not do it in the cool weather,” Joslin said. “Plus, it gives the parents an opportunity to come watch. Most of the time when you are practicing in the morning, parents are at work. I know it’s late at night, but it is a good chance for parents to come up and watch the first practice, and makes it pretty neat for the kids.”


Joslin also encourages the community to attend the event which will be held at the Bill Easterling Memorial Stadium. 


“The stands will be open,” he said. “We will turn on the lights a few minutes before midnight and then we will come out there and get going. Anybody in the community that wants to come, we will be out doing our normal thing. Just come out and support these boys who have put in all this time.” 


Following the three-hour workout, the players will have 36 hours to recuperate before reporting to practice again at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Joslin added the staff and the players are geared up for the football season.


“We’ve been excited for this time to come since November,” he said. “The kids have put in a lot of hard work over the off season. We had outstanding numbers over the summer with both boys and girls working out. We had over 70 kids make the 100 percent club which is awesome. We have great senior leadership for both the boys and girls and that is trickling down into the other grades, so we are excited to see what happens.”


Now with a full year under his belt as the Bulldog head coach, Joslin, who was hired in the summer of 2018, said he and his staff are feeling much more confident heading into the season.


“We are 900 times ahead of where we were last year,” he said. “Last year, we still felt like we were ready to go when it was time, but we’ve taken advantage of the new rules this summer to get some looks at some kids, we played 7-on-7 and then we did a lot of stuff in the spring. With that and summer workouts, we are way ahead of where we were this time last year.”


Fans will see a change on the Bulldog defense this year. Thanks to the hire of new defensive coordinator Mitchell Woodard, Coahoma has added a 3-4 defensive strategy to the playbook. Woodard, who comes to Coahoma from Big Spring, will also served as the head track coach. Also new to the staff are Robert Sanchez, who was hired in the spring and will coach the outside linebackers, and K.J. Glaspie, a Stanton High School graduate, who joins the offensive coaching team. 


As preparation for preseason nears, Joslin said the staff and players are eager to hit the gridiron come one minute past midnight Monday morning. 


“We are doing this to get the players a workout in cool weather and to give them a big break in between the first and second practice, but it would be great to have parents and the community come out,” Joslin said. “They have put in a lot of hard work since November of last year. This is the first chance you will get to see what the 2019 Bulldogs look like.

Professional indoor soccer team comes to West Texas.


Over the last couple of months, the West Texas Rumbleweeds have been drawing the attention of soccer fans in the area. The professional indoor soccer team is associated with the United States Arena Professional Soccer League. Their home games are played at the Ector County Coliseum in Odessa.

 

Leif Kertis, General Manager for the West Texas Rumbleweeds, told KBest News that the league had been in the works for about 5 years. Even though this is the inaugural year for the league, Kertis advised that they’ve had great turnouts for their games. He stated that the first game brought in over 2,000 people and they’ve been able to draw at least 1,500 for each of the following games. 

 

Kertis described the games as being fast-paced, fun, and family friendly. He also advised that their organization is unique in that they allow the fans a lot more access to the players. 

 

"After every game, we allow our fans to come on to the field and meet the players," said Kertis. "We make our players accessible, and just seeing the reaction of the community's had to that, seeing the fact that they love that. They have access to the players. They can get an autograph; they can get a picture. They can actually have that relationship with a player rather than having to idolize a player. They actually get to meet that player."

 

This Saturday, June 29th, the West Texas Rumbleweeds will take on the undefeated Amarillo Bombers at the Ector County Coliseum at 6 PM. This Saturday is Oil Appreciation Night and Military Appreciation Night. If you’re a part of the oil industry, or if you are present or past military, just show your ID at the box office for a free ticket.

Hawks selected for conference and region honors


Success is no stranger for the Howard College Hawk Softball Team and this year is no different. After bringing home their fifth consecutive Western Junior College Athletic Conference (WJCAC) championship, the Hawks fought hard to win the Regional Tournament and secured their fifth straight trip to the NJCAA Division I National Tournament in St. George, Utah.


In addition, the Hawks landed 8 student athletes on the WJCAC All Conference and Region V West All Region softball teams for their efforts in the 2018-2019 season.

 

Headlining the list is the unanimous selection of shortstop Amanda Gonzalez as both the Conference and Region Most Valuable Player (MVP). Gonzalez was also selected to the Infield All Conference and All Region teams.

 

Heading into the regional tournament, Gonzalez was 1st in the nation in RBIs (94) and home runs (27) and was 5th in the nation in batting average with .527.

 

“I believe Amanda has been the best hitter in the conference this year, and I am excited she has received recognition for her hard work,” said Hawk head coach Kelly Raines. “She has been the catalyst of our offense all year long. As a freshman, being at the top of the national leaderboard in all three offensive categories is very impressive and something you don’t see very often.”


In addition to the MVP slot, the Hawks had 7 other players recognized for their contributions this year.

 

All Conference:
Pitcher: Marin Musicant and Julia Grib
Infield: Amanda Gonzalez and Paige Hallam
Outfield: Laela Minnich
Honorable Mention: Addison Lewis, Catcher; Lani Graft, Infield; and Sarah Urrea, Outfield

 

All Region:
Pitcher: Marin Musicant
Infield: Amanda Gonzalez
Outfield: Laela Minnich
Honorable Mention: Julia Grib, Pitcher; Addison Lewis, Catcher; Paige Hallam, Infield; and Sarah Urrea, Outfield

 

“After the first loss, we could have given up but every girl made a choice to fight to the end,” said Raines. “Our motto around here is we are never out of the fight. I am really proud of our program for winning 5 consecutive championships and feel very fortune for everyone who has helped make this happen.”

CHS Ott qualifies for junior nationals, state in track


In his first year of competition, Coahoma High School freshman Vance Ott has qualified for both junior national competition and UIL state competition in track and field.

 

Ott qualified at a meet held in San Antonio this past weekend in the 100 dash, 200 dash, 400 dash, shot put, and powerlifting to attend the Adaptive Sports US Junior Nationals which will be held in Minnesota on July 17-19.

 

Last week, the Coahoma High School freshman learned he is heading to state in three UIL track and field events.

 

To qualify for UIL adaptive sports events, an athlete must place in the top nine performances from around the state based off of submitted results from local, area, and regional competitions.

 

Ott, a paralympic athletic, is currently third in the state for the 100 dash, fourth in the 400 dash event and ninth in the shot put event.

 

“This is an extremely impressive accomplishment for a freshman who has never competed in track until this year,” said CHS Head Track Coach John-Michael Leggett.

 

At UIL 3A Region track contest held recently, Ott, Zack Schneider and Sean Streighler had an outstanding day on the Abilene Christian University field. Ott earned gold in all three of his events. He finished the 100 dash in 18.39 seconds, the 400 dash in 1:09 seconds and threw 16 ft, 3 in the shot put competition.

 

Schneider, a junior, finished third in his shot put competition. His performance placed him in a wildcard position for state, but he just missed by one inch. Schneider threw 47 ft, 5 inches. Rounding out the team, sophomore Streighler placed ninth in the semi-finals for the long jump. His distance was 20 feet, 2 inches.

 

The UIL State Track and Field meet will be held on Friday and Saturday at Mike A. Myers Stadium on the University of Texas campus in Austin.
