BIG SPRING â€” Going into a hostile gym and faced with an almost must-win situation Tuesday, the Sweetwater High School girls basketball team came through with one of its best games of the season.
Getting a team-high 16 points from Kinsey Brown-ing and Taylor McKoy, the Lady Mustangs streaked to their first District 5-3A win of the season as they routed Big Spring, 59-35, on the Lady Steersâ€™ home floor.
BIG SPRING â€” Ahead 5-0 just 13 seconds into the game, the Sweetwater boys basketball team was unable to hold on for long Tuesday as Big Spring rallied for a convincing 75-46 win.
Sweetwater (0-2 district, 6-16 season) also failed to stop Big Springâ€™s outstand-ding guard, Luke Adams, who hit eight 3-pointers en route to a 37-point performance at the Steersâ€™ gym. Big Spring, which is ranked No. 24 in Class 3A in this weekâ€™s statewide poll, im-proved to 2-0 in district and remained in a tie for the early District 5-3A lead with Abilene Wylie.
While itâ€™s only Janu-ary, the official start of the high school â€śspringâ€ť sports season is almost here as the Sweetwater and Roscoe powerlifting teams and the Sweetwa-ter tennis team begin competing on Thursday.
