Roscoeâ€™s football team currently sits atop the District 7-1A, Division II standings after a 47-6 win over Baird in its opener last week at Roscoe.
But for the Plowboys to improve their record to 2-0, they must find a way to beat a Cross Plains team tonight on its home turf.
And while Roscoe is 2-2 this season â€” matching its total wins for the past two seasons â€” the team is 0-2 on the road so far.
Here are recent results for the Sweetwater Middle School eighth grade White volleyball team:
Vs. Big Spring
Sweetwater â€˜Câ€™ lost 12-25, 4-11. Leading servers and points: Kalei Hayes 2, Addy Jones 2.
Sweetwater â€˜Bâ€™ lost 14-25, 23-25. Leading servers and points: Xaveria Clark 5, Caprice Cepeda 3, Avery Garcia 3.
Big Spring â€˜Bâ€™ tournament
Sweetwater lost to Monahans 22-25. 22-25. Leading servers and points: Caprice Cepeda 9, Dharma Hernandez 6, Ainsleigh Nelson 5, Alex Perez 3.
Today will be mostly sunny, with a high near 90. Winds will be breezy with a south wind at 15 to 20 mph.
Expect mostly cloudy skies tonight, with a low around 52 and southern winds at 10 to 15 mph. After midnight, winds will shift to the north-northwest and during the evening we'll have a 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms.
And get ready for the cold front that comes through this weekend! Highs will be in the upper 60s/low 70s, while weekend lows will be in the upper 40s. Winds will be from the northwest and breezy on Saturday, but will decrease by Sunday night.
Five of District 4-3Aâ€™s six football teams have finished the non-district portion of their schedules and are idle this week, with Monahans â€” which takes on Canyon â€” the lone exception.
The second, and by far most important, half of the season gets started when the teams begin district ac-tion next week.
So now â€” while the teams (except for Monahans) get a breather â€”seems as good a time as any to take a look at the teams (including Sweetwater), how they have fared so far and what their chances are in one of the stateâ€™s best 3A districts.
Head coach: Hugh San-difer
Itâ€™s taken awhile, but all three Nolan County football teams outside of Sweetwa-ter are hitting their stride.
The good news for Roscoe is twofold: not only are the Plowboys off to a 2-2 start after winning a total of two games the past two seasons, but â€” and much more im-portantly â€” they are 1-0 in District 7-1A, Division II after a 47-6 win over Baird this past Friday.
Roscoe will now travel to Cross Plains â€“ also 1-0 in district â€” on Friday as the Plowboys try to build on last weekâ€™s success.
The Mustang Baseball Classic golf tournament will be held on Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Sweetwater Country Club with a 9 a.m. shotgun start.

A benefit golf tournament will be hosted on Saturday to benefit the family of local paramedic Nick Barton who was injured in a motorcycle accident in Fisher County in August.
Barton was taken to University Medical Center in Lubbock in critical condition after the wreck occurred and he sustained several broken bones and brain damage.
The Barton family is facing a number of visits to the hospital and rehab facilities in the future. Barton is not expected to return to work anytime in the near future and the family is on the verge of having very little income and needs help.
