Lobos stylin' in new big wheels

DALLAS - When the Sul Ross State University baseball team emerged from their Dallas hotel Feb. 21 en route to play the University of Texas-Tyler, they did not see their familiar ride. Instead, a maroon, 40-passenger 2011 Glaval Apollo bus awaited them. The familiar 36-passenger Lobo bus was nowhere in sight. “The players looked around and asked, ‘where’s the bus, coach?’” said Bobby Mesker, Lobo baseball coach and interim athletic director. “They didn’t believe me when I said this was their new ride; I had to open the luggage compartments to show them their gear.”
