WOODROW â€” As they say, better late than never.
Everything about Game 1 of Sweetwaterâ€™s area playoff against Pampa wound up being way behind schedule on Friday, and that isnâ€™t just a reference to the fact that it began almost an hour-and-a-half later than planned â€” and at a different location â€” due to inclement weather at Lubbock Christian Univ-ersity that forced both teams to scramble for another field to play on.
AUSTIN â€” Five Nolan County athletes came away with state medals Friday at the Class 1A, Division II meet, and there were three other fourth-place finishes as well.
Blackwellâ€™s Jayden Jones won a first-place gold medal in the boys pole vault with a leap of 13 feet, six inches. Highlandâ€™s Michael Hyde won a third-place bronze in the same event at 12-6.
