Noel Olivas, Coahoma Youth Baseball Board Member, told KBest News that youth sports are great to get kids outside in fresh air, moving, and learning about wins and losses.


"I still remember a lot of the things my coaches told me, more so than when I was older. I didn't realize how big of an influence they'd be. Now that I'm a 40-year-old man, I still think about them."


Olivas said that the coaches get together to discuss strategies to help kids across the board and make it a good experience for everyone.


Sign-ups will be held from 6-8 pm at the Dairy Queen in Coahoma today, Feb. 24th - Feb. 28th.

LOCATION CHANGE for annual Run 2 Love 2 Run event

Runners participating in the annual Run 2 Love 2 Run event, scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 15th, 2020, in Big Spring will experience a nice change of scenery this year. The race, traditionally held at the Big Spring State Park, has been moved to Comanche Trail Park. According to Craig Felty, Race Coordinator for Permian Basin Events, the race will begin and end at the new SM Energy pavilion, which is located between the Dora Roberts Community Center and the historic spring.


Felty told KBest News that they had made the change to try and make the race more accessible to people at different fitness levels. This year’s course at Comanche Trail Park, utilizes the old Rose Majers trail, runs past the spring and makes a loop through the park. Felty advised that the new course is an easy mix of road and trail that should be much flatter and faster than the Scenic Mountain course.


Online registration for the race is still available at Cost for adults is $30, students and children are $20, and the entry fee for teams of 2 competing in the couple’s category is $50. Money raised from this year's race will benefit CASA of West Texas.


It should be noted that the entrance roads leading to the golf course and the Dora Roberts Community Center will remain open, but the rest of the park will be closed from 9:30 am – 11 am for the race.

Coahoma's Corely Signs with Sul Ross Lobos to play basketball

COAHOMA - Four years ago Caitlyn Corley knew what she wanted to do after high school. On Monday morning at the Coahoma High School auditorium, it became a reality when the Coahoma senior signed an agreement to play basketball for the Sul Ross State University Lobos. 


Sul Ross is a Division III school in Alpine. It plays in the American Southwest Conference and Katherine Novak is the women’s head basketball coach.


Corley, who plans to major in physical therapy, said Sul Ross is a good fit for her. 


"I had other schools contact me by e-mail, but I visited Sul Ross and I liked the place," Corley said. "I felt comfortable, at home there. I love coach Novak. I like what she's trying to do with the program, turn it around. I feel she's thinking about the best interest of the team."

Novak said Corley is a "great find" for her team. 


"I think Caitlyn Corley is going to be a great fit for our program," she said. "She is a natural competitor. She is hungry to win and get better and obviously has the skills to play at the next level."


Novak, Coahoma ISD Athletic Director Chris Joslin and Coahoma girls basketball coach Jim Kinnear all agree that it's Corley's drive that makes her special.


"She very dedicated and works very hard. She makes a lot of sacrifices. One of her goals was to make it to the next level,” Kinnear said.


"She is an awesome person and athlete," said Joslin. We challenged all of our athletes to commit to summer conditioning every day. Caitlyn took a big step in encouraging all the girls to show up and participate. She plays every sport we offer and excels at every one. Sul Ross is getting a great person as well as a great athlete.”


Novak already has plans for Corley. 


"My plans are to play her at a point guard position first. She has the ability to play off guard as well. She will add toughness to our team. Another aspect about Caitlyn's game that  really stands out is her leadership ability. She is very vocal on both ends of the court and vocal high school players always have an easier time transitioning to college," Novak said.


The 5-foot-8 Corley has participated in basketball, volleyball, track and field and softball throughout her career. Last year she was first team All-District in 5-3A in basketball. This year, she has led Coahoma to one its best basketball starts in recent history. 


The Bulldogettes are 7-2, coming off a second place finish at the O.W. Follis tournament in Lamesa last weekend. Corley is averaging 12 points per contest.  


"My freshman year I decided I wanted to play college basketball. Everybody told me I couldn't do it," said Corley. "I come from a small school with not much basketball tradition. I wanted to prove everybody wrong."


Indeed, she did.

Corley to commit to the Lady Lobos

COAHOMA — Coahoma High School invites the public to join Caitlyn Corley on Monday when she takes the next step toward her future by committing to play basketball at Sul Ross University in the fall.


Corley, who has been on the varsity Bulldogettes basketball team for four years, will sign the commitment papers at 10 a.m. Monday in the CHS auditorium.


This season as a team captain, Corley has led the varsity Bulldogettes to one of their best starts with five wins and one loss. She was named to the 5-3A Basketball All-District First team for the 2018-2019 season.


The CHS senior has been a member of the varsity Bulldogettes for the past four years. She is also an all-around athlete at CHS and participates in varsity volleyball, track, and softball.


On Monday, Corley will officially ink a deal to join the Division III Lady Lobos at Sul Ross University were she plans to take coursework to prepare for a career as a physical therapist.

CISD: Six Bulldogs made All-State Academic Football list

COAHOMA — Six Coahoma Bulldogs have proven they excel not only on the gridiron but also in the classroom after they landed on the THSCA All-State Academic Football list.


Seniors Keegan Dobbs, Cutter Atkins, Brant Gartman, Gaige Hill, Garrett Anderson, and Jonathon Schneider made the list by the Texas High School Coaches Association (THSCA) to honor high school athletes who shine both academically and athletically. 


“I am very proud of these young men for taking care of business in the classroom and on the field,” said Bulldogs head football coach Chris Joslin.


Gartman, Atkins, and Hill were named to the second team and Anderson, Schneider, and Dobbs made honorable mention. The award is based on grade point average, class ranking, and SAT or ACT scores and is made up of athletes from 1A to 6A schools.
