The Sweetwater girls golf team moved up one spot to third place Saturday during the second leg of the district golf tournament held at Sweetwater Country Club.
Sweetwater shot 371 for a 759 total as it moved past Wylie, which shot 390-775.
But going into todayâ€™s third and final leg of the district tournament at Green-wood, Sweetwater is faced with a near-insurmountable task of grabbing one of the top two spots and earning a trip to regionals, as it trails second-place Monahans (673) by 86 strokes.
