Mustangs, Lady Stangs are defeated at Merkel

December 8, 2010

Though it was a short trip, Tuesday proved to be a long night for both Sweetwater High School varsity basketball teams at Merkel.
The SHS girls lost 54-29 to the Lady Badgers, who are currently ranked No. 7 among all Class 2A teams by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches. Then the SHS boys — who just two weeks earlier had defeated Merkel 60-55 at Mustang Gym — fell victim to a horrible start and lost, 64-48. Both teams will get another shot at Merkel on Thursday, however, when they play first-round games at the Stanton tournament that runs through Saturday (see schedules below).

Sweetwater’s freshman girls are also having an excellent season.
