Highland will be rep-resented by two teams in the upcoming 2013 basketball playoffs after sweeping a doubleheader with Roscoe on Friday at Highlandâ€™s gym.
The Highland girls as-sured themselves of the District 13-A title by win-ning 39-17, as the Lady Hornets improved to 9-0 in district and 26-3 for the season. Roscoe, despite losing, is still in second place in the district (6-3) and needs only to beat last-place Loraine at home on Tuesday to wrap up a playoff berth.
The Highland boys will be in the postseason after edging Roscoe 38-36 in the nightcap of Fridayâ€™s doubleheader.
Since their 65-49 victory at Snyder on Jan. 15, the Sweetwater boys basketball team has had trouble not only winning games â€” the Mustangs had lost four in a row coming into Fridayâ€™s rematch â€” but also putting the ball in the basket.
Even though Sweetwater ended its losing skid against Snyder with a 46-44 win, those troubles continued at Mustang Gym against the Tigers, whoâ€™ve won just four of 25 games this season.
Sweetwater led 9-0 before Snyder got on the board, and enjoyed a 13-5 lead in the first minute of the sec-ond quarter.
Sweetwater High Schoolâ€™s varsity tennis team won 14 of 16 matches against Mid-land Greenwood to begin its 2013 spring season here Thursday. The team plays at San Angelo Lake Viewâ€™s one-day tournament this Friday.
Individual results follow:
Boys doubles â€” Zach Bax and Billy Reeves won 8-5; Keygan Valdez and Bryan Vause won 8-3; Stephen Shipp and Brandon Howell won 8-6.
Girls doubles â€” Gewel Cherry and Brianna Hicks lost 6-8.
Mixed doubles â€” Isaiah Hernandez and Jenny Medellin won 8-0.
