CRANE â€” Despite some missed opportunities, the Sweetwater baseball team got its first playoff series in nine years off to a success-ful start Friday.
But the Mustangsâ€™ 5-4 bi-district win over Fabens in Game 1 of their best-of-3 series was suspenseful right down to the end.
Sweetwater stranded 10 runners in the contest, nine of them in the last four in-nings, but still was able to rally from a brief 3-2 defi-cit â€” and guarantee itself two chances Saturday at Crane High Schoolâ€™s field to advance to the Class 3A area playoffs next week.
Listed below are the regional times and distances of the Nolan County athletes who qualified for the state track meet and where they rank among the nine state qualifiers in their events. The state track meet will be held May 10-11 at Austinâ€™s Mike A. Myers Stadium:
