It may be too early to think about making it to the postseason in late October, but something different is happening with the 2012 Sweetwater volleyball team â itâs beating its opponents regularly and convincingly, no longer seemingly content to extend its matches by a game or two.
The latest example came Tuesday when the team finally came home from a three-week-long road swing to entertain Colorado City.
Wednesday's forecast is looking hot once again with a high near 101 and mostly sunny skies. South-southeast winds will be at 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.
Tonight, we'll see a 20% chance of rain and thunderstorms and partly cloudy skies and a low around 74. Winds from the southeast will come in around 10 mph.
