ABILENE â€” After a split decision Thursday at Wylie, Sweetwaterâ€™s softball and baseball teams both share the lead in District 4-3A â€” and nothing will change un-til at least next Friday.
The Lady Mustang soft-ball team (4-1) won 7-3 to remain in a tie for first place with Snyder in the district at the halfway point.
But the Mustang baseball team (3-1) lost, 14-7, to fall out of undisputed first place and into a three-way tie with Big Spring and Wylie.
The next action for Sweet-waterâ€™s teams will be April 5 at Snyder. The district is taking a break due to student testing next week.
