Lady Mustangs back in playoffs after exciting win

April 13, 2013

It took 15 years before Sweetwater’s softball program finally got back into the playoffs in 2012.
On Friday, the Lady Mus-tangs claimed their second straight postseason berth with a 6-5 win over Big Spring in a game players on both teams may remember 15 years from now.
Sweetwater jumped out to a 4-0 lead after four innings, only to see the visiting Lady Steers battle back and tie it 5-5 by scoring twice in the top of the seventh.

Mustangs rally past Steers, stay in tie for 1st place

April 13, 2013

The Sweetwater baseball team is so close to its first playoff berth in nine years that the Mustang players can taste it. But despite a come-from-behind 8-4 win here Friday over Big Spring, they will have to wait at least four more days to celebrate their accomplishment.
However, Sweetwater (6-1 district, 14-11 overall) is still tied with Wylie for first place with three games left, and this Saturday’s game in Sweetwater between the two teams could decide the eventual 4-3A champion.
