With two 18-hole legs to play in the 54-hole event, Sweetwater trails only Big Spring, which has the lead with a 308 total, and Wylie, which shot 318. Snyder is fourth (331), followed by Snyderâ€™s No. 2 team (346) and Wylie No. 2 (361).
For both the Sweetwater High School baseball and softball teams, today marks the beginning of perhaps the most import-ant part of their seasons.
Both teams will be playing their next four District 5-3A games in front of their home fans, starting with Brownwood today.
