On Sunday, Oct. 21, 2012, Trinity Baptist Church celebrated the realization of a 50-year vision.Â Since the beginning of the church, Trinity has had a vision of growth.Â The original church was constructed with a planned addition and while the plans were modified over time, the vision to grow and serve the community of Sweetwater has remained steadfast.
The Roscoe Volunteer Fire Department made a correction to one of the awards at the cook-off. The Second Place Steak box number was read out incorrectly by a cook-off official and no team responded at the time of the awards with that number.
The committee reviewed the numbers on the box and found that it was their mistake and not a cooking team. The winning cooking team was then awarded their prize.

1. Backyard Grillers
3. Two Peas in Pod
4. Bar B-Que

Tennis team wins 14 of 18 matches against Greenwood
Sweetwater High Schoolâ€™s tennis team did exception-ally well this past Tuesday, winning 14 of 18 matches against Midland Greenwood at the SHS courts.
After suffering a defeat at Big Spring three days earlier that eliminated any hopes of reaching the playoffs, the Sweetwater volleyball team â€” which by many accounts has had an excellent season â€” showed off its talent while beating Midland Greenwood in three games at Mustang Gym.
After winning the first two games over the Rangerettes by scores of 25-15 and 25-17, Sweetwater (24-15 overall) staged a terrific rally to get a sweep with a 25-19 win in Game 3 that dropped Greenwood to 1-8 in district.
