Big Spring Steers will have medical provider on sidelines this season during home football games


Big Spring Steers opened their season with a victory on the road last week in Vernon and will play at home this Friday against Lubbock High. Not only will this Friday be the first home game of the season, but it will also be the first game in a long time that there will be a medical provider on the sidelines for the Steers.

 

According to Mitzi Knight, Business Developer for Scenic Mountain Medical Center, this year, Scenic Mountain Medical Center and Scenic Mountain Medical Group, along with John Overton, Athletic Trainer for Howard College, and new BSHS athletic trainer Hannah Gartman will be working with two medical providers on the field during home games for the Steers.

 

“It’s going to be Dr. Scott Barclay, and Jonathan Morales, Nurse Practitioner, and we’re so excited for the home games, and they’re super excited,” said Knight.

 

She also announced that SMMC will also be teaming up with the Odessa Sports Clinic at Odessa Regional Medical Center (ORMC) with Dr. Luv Singh, MD - Sports Orthopedic Surgeon. In Odessa, there will be a free sports clinic from 9 am - 10 am on Saturday mornings, where sports injuries can be seen on a first-come-first-serve basis.

 

"So if we have an injury, hopefully, they don’t have to go to the emergency room, but if they do, they know exactly what to do and they make that call to Dr. Singh, otherwise Dr. Barclay or Jonathan - whichever is on the field that night - will hook up with John Overton and they’ll make a straight phone call to Dr. Singh and he’ll know exactly what’s gone on, and he’ll know exactly what to do when he sees that young gentleman," said Knight.

 

Tickets for this week’s home game go on sale today at the ATC, next to Big Spring High School, from 8:30 am - 12:30 PM and 2-3 pm. Pre-sale prices are $4 for adults and $2 for students. All general admission at the gate will be $6 per person.

 

Be advised that only student tickets for home games can be purchased on Fridays at each campus. If you have questions concerning football tickets, contact Rosi Slate at 432-264-3662.

Bulldogettes starts volleyball season 2-0 


POST — The Coahoma Bulldogettes started the season with a pair of wins after outlasting Post in five sets and beating the Lamesa in four in non-district action on Tuesday night.

Coahoma closed out the dual with a 18-25, 21-25, 25-9, 25-23, 15-13 win over Post and a 23-25, 25-17, 25-11, 25-19 victory over Lamesa. 

 

However, the day didn’t start off well for the Bulldogettes. The Post volleyball squad wrapped up the first set with a seven-point run for the win and held off a late-in-the-game, five-point rally by Coahoma in the second set to get a 2-0 lead in the match.

 

By the third set the Bulldogettes seemed to have put away their game day jitters and dominated Post 25-9. Madison Rodgers set the tone for the Bulldogettes at the serve line going on a three-point run early in the game. Helping the cause were Karleigh Burt, Brynn Rodgers, and Isabella Cox, who had deep runs at the serve line.

 

Zoie Joslin helped to continue the Bulldogettes’ momentum by snagging the first point of the fourth set with a setter dump. The CHS junior then served up four more points to bring Coahoma into a 5-0 advantage. Post battled back and briefly took the lead at 19-20 before Coahoma got the 25-23 win and forced the tie-breaking fifth set.  

 

Cox led the Bulldogettes on offense with 10 kills. Cayhill Lewis had eight. Joslin had 24 assists for the match. 

 

In match two, the Bulldogettes bounced back again after losing the first set to Lamesa 23-25 but won the next three decisively. Joslin and M. Rodgers picked up three aces each and Cox served one. Joslin also had 19 assists. M. Rodgers and Lewis earned seven kills each.

In sub-varsity action, JV White split the dual with a win over Post and a loss to Lamesa. JV Red dropped both games on Tuesday.

 

Next: The varsity Bulldogettes head to Veribest to compete at the annual Falcon Fest tournament this Friday and Saturday. The sub-varsity teams will have the weekend off.

Familiar Face Returns to Howard College as Head Baseball Coach


 

BIG SPRING – A familiar face will be seen on Jack Barber Field as Howard College has hired Jack Giese as the new head coach for the baseball program. Giese was previously with the Hawks as the associate head coach under Britt Smith when the Hawks won the NJCAA Division I National Championship in 2009. He will be on campus and officially begin his duties on August 1, 2021.

 

            The position was recently opened after the resignation of the Hawks head coach, Michael Lopez.

 

         “We are very excited that Jack is returning to our program,” said Mike Yeater, Athletic Director. “With his previous national championship coaching experience with our program as well as the other Division I and Minor League coaching experience that he brings to the table, our baseball program will be positioned for tremendous success.”

 

         Most recently, Giese has spent 6 years as a pitching consultant and recruiter with MVP Sports Group. Prior to that, he served 2 years as a Pitching Coach and Recruiter at the University of Oklahoma in Norman.

 

Following his stint with the Hawks and the National Championship win in 2009, Giese moved on to be a Minor League Pitching Coach with the Tampa Bay Rays.

 

“I’m excited to be coming back to Big Spring and Howard College”, said Giese. “I look forward to meeting the team and growing the tradition of excellence that has been started at Howard.”

 

Although this will be Giese’s first head coaching stint, his pitching coach record speaks for itself as he has worked and continues to work with several current Major and Minor League players, including 2 Cy Young Award winners.

 

“Jack has a lot of experience in player development,” added Yeater. “That in conjunction with his coaching and recruiting experience will be a huge asset for our program.”

 

That experience isn’t just limited to the United States as Giese was also tagged to travel to the Dominican Republic to work with pitchers at the Tampa Bay Rays Dominican Academy in 2010 and coached the 18U USA National Team in 2007.

 

“Being a first-time head coach, I couldn’t ask for a better place than Howard College,” added Giese. “I know the traditions here will guide us as we do things the right way both on and off the field and immerse ourselves in the team environment as well as our local and college community.”

 

The Hawks will soon be returning to campus in August as classes begin on August 25th.

CISD's Shawver named TGCA 2020-21 1A-2A-3A-4A Softball Sub-Varsity Coach of the Year


COAHOMA — The Coahoma ISD Athletic Department is proud to announce that Katherine Shawver has been named the 2020-2021 1A-2A-3A-4A Sub-Varsity Softball Coach of the Year by the Texas Girls Coaches Association (TGCA).

 

“I was shocked when I heard,” Shawver said. “It hit me that other coaches in the state have taken notice of all the hard work our students, parents, and coaches have put in to continue a long tradition of Coahoma High School softball excellence and competitiveness. It’s a huge honor for me.”

 

TGCA is the one of the largest associations of coaches and the largest association for coaches of girls’ athletics in the United States, according to the TGCA website. Shawver was nominated for the honor by Bulldogette head softball coach Alex Orosco, and was selected by a committee of Texas coaches.

 

“Coach Shawver is present for this team 100 percent of the time. She is a true assistant,” Orosco said. “She always picks up the load for me without being asked. She has been a steady presence for the Coahoma softball program. She was here before I came  on board, she never misses a game, an event, or a practice, and she always has a positive attitude. She’s awesome, and the girls respond to her coaching well.”

 

Shawver has served as a sub-varsity coach at Coahoma ISD for the past seven years. This past season, her JV Bulldogettes were undefeated in district action and finished the 2020-2021 season with an 11-1 record. In the previous full UIL softball season, Shawver’s JV team lost only one district game for the 2018-2019 season. 

 

Shawver also serves as the assistant coach to the varsity Bulldogette softball team, which finished the 2020-2021 season with a 26-7 record, an undefeated district record, and an appearance in UIL Texas state playoffs regional quarterfinals.

 

The Missouri native credits the success of the Coahoma softball program to the work ethic of the players and support of their parents. 

 

“We are lucky to have excellent athletes to coach, and it started at home,” she said. “Many of these girls have been dedicated to the sport since they were little and had strong parental support to encourage them. It takes a community to develop a competitive program.”

 

As a Coahoma Bulldogette coach, Shawver feels her job is to help direct the player’s competitive nature to strive for excellence not only on the field but in all other areas of their life. 

 

“Wins are great, but we are also here to teach them life lessons,” she said. “In order for a team to be great on the field, the players have to work as a team and not play just for individual glory. 

 

“When we fall behind and find ourselves in a tense situation, they have to be able to handle the stress,” she continued. “Umpires are not always perfect, and players make mistakes. You have to let that go and persevere. We had a few games this year where we were behind, but we pushed through and came out on top.”

 

Before joining Coahoma ISD, Shawver played softball as a utility player for the Ottawa University Braves in Ottawa, Kansas, under head coach Jay Kahnt. 

 

“I would like to give a huge shout-out to my college. They just went to the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) Softball World Series, and a shout out to my former head coach Jay Kahnt,” she said. “He just had his 500th win of his career. High school and travel ball taught me a lot about the sport, but Coach Kahnt also taught me a lot.” 

 

Shawver will receive her Sub-Varsity Coach of the Year award in July at the TGCA state convention.
