Health Department celebrates NIIW

April 13, 2015

National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) is an annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases and celebrate the achievements of immunization programs in promoting healthy communities. This year’s NIIW is April 18-25. Infants are particularly vulnerable to infectious diseases; that is why it is critical to protect them through immunizations. Each day, nearly 12,000 babies are born in the United States who will need to be immunized against 14-vaccine-preventable diseases before age two.

‘Stangs are now in 3-way tie atop 2-4A

April 12, 2015

SNYDER — Suddenly, it’s crowded at the top of the District 2-4A baseball standings with three teams — Sweetwater, Big Spring and Snyder — all at 4-1.
Sweetwater was on top all by itself after the Mustangs won their first four games, but an 8-3 loss to Snyder on Friday at Moffett Field changed that as Big Spring — an 18-5 loser to Sweetwater three nights earlier — also won 9-2 over Lamesa to forge a three-way tie.

First-place Snyder keeps SW at bay after quick start, wins 9-3

April 12, 2015

Sweetwater was supposed to play softball at Snyder on Friday. But due to interfer-ence from Mother Nature that caused the teams’ first district meeting March 20 to be moved to Snyder when Sweetwater’s field was too wet to play on, the rematch Friday was played at the Jerry Collins Complex.
Sweetwater, which was a 12-1 loser in the first game, lost again on Friday, 9-3, to fall to 3-3 in district play.
