Troey Daffern

May 17, 2013

Ret. Lt. Col. Troey Daffern, U.S.A.F., 90, of Spokane, Wash., our beloved hero passed away peacefully and became our guardian angel on May 9, 2013.
He was a loving and dedicated husband of over 64 years, father, brother, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend to all he met. He will be deeply missed by all those who knew him.
Troey was a New Year’s Baby — born Jan. 1, 1923 in Rotan, Texas. On May 24, 1944, Troey married the love of his life and high school sweetheart, Wilda Browning. In 1946 they welcomed their first child Russ, then in 1948 their daughter Sue.

Sweetwater faces playoff-tested rival for berth in final 16

May 17, 2013

Sweetwater is one of 32 baseball teams who are still alive in the Class 3A high school playoffs. But in order to make it to the Sweet 16, it will have to knock off an Andrews squad that is in the playoffs for the 19th consecutive year.
That equals the number of years that Roland Herrera has been a head baseball coach, the last five of them at Sweetwater. But this is the first time in his tenure with the Mustangs to make it to the postseason.
Sweetwater (19-14) may be a “Cinderella” team, he admits, but they deserve to be here.
