Todayâ€™s contests against Wylie will be the last of four straight home games for Sweetwater High Schoolâ€™s baseball and softball teams against district opponents. Furthermore, they will be the last home games of the 2011 season for both teams.
And for the two squads, a victory today is crucial to remain viable contenders in District 5-3A, though the 2-3 Lady Mustang softball team â€” which will host Wylie at 5 p.m. â€” has more wiggle room than the 1-3 baseball team, which entertains Wylie at 7 p.m.
Here are Roscoeâ€™s indivi-dual results from its recent track meet at Roby:
High jump â€” Dakota Bradbury T6th (5-0)
Pole vault â€” Dillon Freeman 4th (7-0)
Long jump â€” Devan Cole 7th (16-9 1/2)
Triple jump â€” Emilio Morales 8th (33-7)
Discus â€” Chase Saunders 5th (90-2); Alex Rhoades 7th (83-2); Keeston Ford 8th (81-7)
Shot put â€” Chase Saunders 4th (35-2)
3200 â€” Kane Peavy 1st (12:26.56)
400 relay â€” 3rd (48.79)
800 â€” Keeston Ford 2nd (2:29.85)
800 relay â€” 2nd (1:43.19)

The Taste of Sweetwater is an annual event people of Sweetwater and the surrounding areas have come to enjoy.

As a way to "celebrate the efforts to end child abuse", the 6th Annual Child Abuse Awareness Banquet was held on Tuesday evening, April 5, at the Nolan County Coliseum Annex, sponsored by the West Texas Children's Advocacy Center (WTCAC).
Peggy Parrott with the WTCAC led a presentation honoring the late Amy Rainey, who was instrumental in setting up the Angel Tree program eight years ago.
