Senior Kris Mayes, in fact, hurled the second no-hitter of his high school career in a 3-2 win over Big Spring as the Mustangs (1-3) pulled out of a last-place tie with the Steers and kept their playoff hopes alive.

Sweetwater had eight hits, but produced just one run as the Lady Mustangs fell to 2-3 in district. Sweetwater is now in a three-way tie for second place with Snyder and Big Spring, with Wylie — which comes here Friday — just a half-game behind all three teams at 1-3.
