Girls golfers 3rd at district

April 8, 2013

The Sweetwater girls golf team moved up one spot to third place Saturday during the second leg of the district golf tournament held at Sweetwater Country Club.
Sweetwater shot 371 for a 759 total as it moved past Wylie, which shot 390-775.
But going into today’s third and final leg of the district tournament at Green-wood, Sweetwater is faced with a near-insurmountable task of grabbing one of the top two spots and earning a trip to regionals, as it trails second-place Monahans (673) by 86 strokes.
Big Spring leads with a 662 total.

April 8, 2013

SNYDER — After prod-ucing 30 runs over its last three games, Sweetwater’s offense was held in check by Snyder pitcher Taylor Munkres on Friday.

Sweetwater bats go silent as Lady Tigers take lead in 4-3A

April 8, 2013

SNYDER — The expected softball showdown Friday between District 4-3A’s top two teams turned into a one-sided affair instead.
And unfortunately for Sweetwater, it was the host Lady Tigers who dominated as they won, 10-0, to take the outright district lead.
Snyder is now 5-1, while Sweetwater falls to 4-2.
The Lady Mustangs had defeated Snyder 11-8 in the District 4-3A opener March 15 in Sweetwater, helped largely by a 10-run inning.
But in the rematch, they were shut out for the first time all year on just one hit, a fourth-inning single by Kelsi Crosson off Snyder’s Adrianna Hernandez.

Sweetwater went from a 352 to 335 for a 687 total, moving up one place from the first round. But it lost ground to the top two teams, Big Spring (596) and Wylie (614). Only the top two teams and top two individuals not on qualifying teams advance to regionals.
