Snyder romps past Sweetwater

April 18, 2012

It was simply no contest when visiting Snyder came to town Tuesday to face Sweetwater in a pair of key District 5-3A contests. The Tigers’ baseball team romped to an 11-0 win to nail down a playoff spot and damage the Mustangs’ hopes, while the Lady Tigers’ softball team rolled to a 14-1 victory to earn the No. 2 playoff seed from the district. Sweetwater, enjoying its best season in years, will still go to the playoffs as the No. 3 seed later this month after finishing 4-4 in district play, while Snyder winds up 5-3. Brownwood, with an 8-0 record, is the district champion.

Mobley returns to SHS as head football coach

April 17, 2012

Although he's actually a Big Lake native, Shane Mobley said his hiring Monday as head football coach and athletic director at Sweetwater High School feels like coming home.
In a sense, he's right.
Mobley — unanimously hired by the Sweetwater ISD board at its regular monthly meeting to replace Craig Slaughter, who resigned last month— not only has deep roots in West Texas, but is returning to a place where he has coached previously and where his wife, Tecka, grew up.
"I'm very fired up for this," he said. "The fact is, I'm ready to come back to West Texas with my family."

SW-Snyder games to have playoff feel

April 17, 2012

Today will be Sweetwater vs. Snyder day at both the baseball game at Newman Park at 7 p.m. and at the softball game that starts at 6:30 p.m. at Jerry Collins Complex, and the stakes are pretty high in both.
The baseball team’s situ-ation is the most critical as the Mustangs, with a 2-4 district record, may not be able to afford another loss to get into the playoffs.
A Sweetwater win would leave both teams 3-4 in district play with a game left.
