After a season-opening tie at San Angelo Lake View and splitting four games this past weekend at Lake View’s tournament, Sweetwater almost overcame two six-run deficits Tuesday against 5A San Angelo Central in the Mustangs’ home open-er. But the Bobcats held off a serious threat in the sixth inning, and held off another potential rally in the seventh for a 10-6 victory.
Sweetwater trailed 10-4 when Stephen May tripled with two outs to score Shawn Campbell and Cole Maxwell in the sixth inning and chase Central’s starting pitcher Jake Butler.

February 28, 2012

Carlos Rico was the man at the center of a case that shocked the Big Country. In June of 2011, Rico strangled his young son, then dumped him along the side of Interstate 20 in Sweetwater. On Monday, Feb. 27, 2012, 32nd Judicial District Judge Glen Harrison found Rico not guilty of attempted capital murder by reason of insanity.
