March 26, 2011

It was a non-district game against a Class 2A opponent. Still, Friday’s 19-4 romp against Crane at Jerry Collins Complex was a very impressive way for the Sweetwater softball team to begin a five-game homestand.
The 19 runs represented the Lady Mustangs’ highest output of the year, and they needed less than four full innings to amass their total — as well as get 13 hits — against Crane.
