Mustangs hoping for a breakthrough 2011 season

February 19, 2011

Depending on how you look at it, the improve-ment in the Sweetwater baseball program the past two years has been either modest or significant.
The half-full view says that the Mustangs — who start their season Tuesday by hosting San Angelo Lake View at 6:30 p.m. — won six times as many district games as in 2007 and ‘08 combined. However, Sweetwater’s district rec-ord was still just 3-7 in both ‘09 and ‘10.
But there is good reason to believe that 2011 will be the breakthrough season that leads to a return to the playoffs for the first time since 2004.

Another fantastic finish

February 19, 2011

GRADY — It’s probably not the way they prefer to do it, but the Highland girls basketball team has discovered a winning formula in the playoffs.
The Lady Hornets, for the second time in as many postseason games, found themselves trailing with one quarter to play Friday against Wink. But just as it had done three nights earlier against Robert Lee, Highland staged a furious fourth-quarter rally to pull out a 47-41 victory.
