Realignment may not offer much help

February 3, 2012

The University Interscho-lastic League realignment finally arrived on Thursday and as usual, there were some surprises — both good and bad — for our county’s four high schools.
Given Sweetwater’s lack of athletic success recently, the general hope was that the UIL would put the Mustangs and Lady Mustangs in a more favor-able district than the current one (5-3A) with Wylie, Brownwood, Big Spring and Snyder, all with much higher enrollments and with the exception of Big Spring, a big winning tradition.

Sweetwater loses Brownwood, gains Monahans and G'wood

February 2, 2012

Sweetwater's district for the next two years will be slightly bigger and not necessarily any easier.
