Bulldogettes split Sweetwater Dual, 08-15-2020

SWEETWATER —Bulldogettes will be focusing on defensive basics when they return to practice this week after their latest match, but head coach Jamie Bonner is pleased with how her volleyball team is shaping up this season.


The Coahoma team earned its first loss of the preseason to Grape Creek — 21-25, 25-18, 11-15 — and won against 4A Sweetwater — 26-24, 21-25, 15-13 — in a dual match hosted by the Lady Mustangs on Saturday.


The Bulldogettes made some costly defensive errors during their first set against the Lady Eagles, but were able to recover to win the second set. In the last set, the Bulldogettes made a late-in-the-game rally to pull within three points before Grape Creek ended the match with a kill. 


“One big thing they did to us is that they tipped the ball a lot, and we were standing back ready for a hit. We couldn’t adjust and move our feet in time,” Bonner said. “Another issue for us was being in the correct defensive position quick enough. We are definitely going to go back and work on those fundamentals.”


Kenzi Canales led Coahoma in the final push of the Grape Creek game sending over some powerful serves to Lady Eagles side for the last three Bulldogette points. Stepping into the team’s Libero position, the Coahoma High School senior has added an additional level of depth to the Bulldogettes’ defensive arsenal. 


“She worked so hard in the summer,” Bonner said. “Summer workouts were off and on, but she was there every day and continued to work, and she has stepped up her leadership skills this year. Also, I think that just translates to our physical play on the court.”


Quickly shaking off the loss, the girls turned around to face a tough second match against the Sweetwater Lady Mustangs. With the powerful arms of seniors Julia Cox, Ashley Romero, and MaKynlee Overton, Coahoma left the floor with a two-set to one victory. 


Combined stats for the two games show Cox led the Bulldogettes with 10 kills followed by Romero with nine and Overton had eight. 


Led by four senior starters, the Coahoma team still has plenty of talent from its younger players to draw from. Sophomore Zoie Joslin, who returned as the team’s go-to setter, had 16 assists for the match. Freshman Isabella Cox had five kills and an ace and her classmate Sophie Biddison got two kills and two aces. 


“It feels really good, and it feels good to the girls, to know that we have nine players who can all step up at any time and play any position because of their overall athleticism,” Bonner said. “That’s huge for us to have people who can step in no matter what the situation is, and I have faith they can get it done.”


After more than five months and an interrupted summer workout program caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the return to competition has been welcomed by both Coahoma athletes and their coaches. 


It also means getting used to following new UIL Covid-19 guidelines. 


“It’s been weird getting used to the mask, but they have adjusted well,” Bonner said. “I thought not being able to switch sides might have affected us. It’s all mental as far as what side you are on anyway, but so far, I don’t think that has affected us in any way. We are just excited that we get to play. Every day that we get to play, I tell them we are just going to work hard and have fun. You never know how long it will last.”


JV Bulldogettes volleyball action: JV White fell in both games at the Sweetwater dual. JV Red went 2-0.


Next: The Coahoma varsity Bulldogettes (3-1) hosts Lubbock Estacado for their home opener at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday. JV White plays at 4:30 p.m., JV Red’s game starts at 5:30 p.m. All games are held at the Coahoma Elementary School competition gym on the Kim Nichols gym floor.

Local Sisters Step Up to Spread the Joy of Softball by Volunteering with BSGSA

This year’s COVID-19 pandemic impacted every aspect of life from businesses to recreational activities. 


Johnny DeLeon, President of the Big Spring Girls Softball Association, told KBest News that due to COVID-19, BSGSA had lost both sets of 6 & Under coaches that serve ages 4-6 just a week before this year’s delayed season began. After asking all parents of the players involved if anyone would volunteer to coach, DeLeon said that it appeared no one was going to step up to fill the positions, but then two step-sisters, 19-year-old Gabriella Medina and 14-year-old Lexus Lozano reached out to them and volunteered to take the teams. Both girls have played multiple years with BSGSA, but currently have no ties to any of the existing players, merely the love of the game. 


Medina told KBest News that they had both helped their dad coach soccer when their schedules allowed for it and were compelled to coach the young group of girls.


“We wanted these kids to have a chance to play, just like we did before,” said Medina.


Lozano also advised that she had sustained an injury earlier this year that prevented her from playing this year, but loves softball so much that she still wanted to put her heart on the field with the kids. 


With the small group of kids, these ladies held practices together and played 4-on-4 games. The ladies not only coached, but also recruited assistant coaches, such as Abigail Bose and one of the parents. The coaches experienced struggles throughout the season, but were able to find a support system with the parents and pulled off a great experience for their players.


When asked what lessons they took away from the experience, Medina stated that everyone should be grateful for volunteers.


“It kinda opened my eyes to see what really went into it, from getting snacks for the kids, to the water, to being there early, which is kinda hard for me,” Medina laughed. “It was just something nice to do.” She also stated that she learned that it takes time and effort to volunteer, but it’s possible to make time for it.


“It brought so much joy to my face to see kids experience what I got to experience, and knowing that they couldn’t experience that if we hadn't picked [the teams] up,” added Lozano.


Lexus Lozano is a freshman at Coahoma High School. Gabriella Medina is a 2019 graduate of Big Spring High School and will be a sophomore at Texas State University this fall.

2nd Annual Midnight Madness in Coahoma


The Bulldogs kicked off their season late Sunday night / early Monday morning with their second annual Midnight Madness!


At precisely 12:01 AM on August 3, 2020, after several intense protocol and safety meetings, the Coahoma Bulldogs took the field for their first organized practice since March.


When asked what he was hoping to accomplish through this year's Midnight Madness, Head Football Coach and Athletic Director for Coahoma ISD Chris Joslin told KBest News, "Most of these kids have been here all summer long and the goal tonight is to make sure that the guys are in shape. We got plenty of time between now and [game time]," said Coach Joslin.


"We just don’t want to rush into it and [want to] try our best to avoid any foolish injuries,” he continued.


Coach Joslin was of course not the only one ready to get the Bulldogs season underway. Senior Defensive End Collin Daniels spoke on behalf of his defense and stated, “We’re just trying to continue to build on what we had last year, and continuing to instill the ideals that the last class of seniors had instilled in us. Like trusting your coaching, and how to play real Coahoma Bulldog Football.”


Of course we can’t forget about that Bulldog offense! Senior Wide Receiver Tony Hagens told KBest News, “There’s a bar that was set this last season, and we have to try and break that.” He went on to say, “all we can do is work hard, and try to win football games.” Which, of course, could not have been said any better.


Unfortunately, the Bulldogs football practice was cut short due to weather, but not before KBest News was able to get one more question in with Junior running back Bryson Kerby about how he thought that his team's first practice went.


Kerby stated, "The guys were excited to be back and you could tell that everyone had that extra pep in their step. The intensity was there, and now it’s just time to capitalize on it.”


Dave Cambell has the Bulldogs picked to place third in the district this year and in the words of Senior Linebacker Patrick Gutierez, “It’s not about where your picked in August, but about how you play in September!”
