Itâ€™s not even mid-March, and Sweetwaterâ€™s baseball team has already equalled its win total for the entire 2010 season. The Mustangs can exceed it by defeating Midland Greenwood today at Newman Park starting at 6 p.m.
The Mustangs are off to an 8-2-1 start after going 8-21 a year ago, and five of this seasonâ€™s victories â€” including four this past weekend at Sweetwaterâ€™s annual Wood Bat Classic â€” have come in the friendly confines of Newman Park.
Sweetwater finished 4-1-1 at its three-day event that ended Saturday.
After an 11-1 loss at San Angelo Lake View on Saturday, the Sweetwater High School softball team will try to rebound today when it goes to Colorado City for a 6:30 p.m. contest.
A nine-run, second-inning uprising by Lake View turned Saturdayâ€™s game into a blowout as Sweetwater fell to 6-4. The Lady Mustangs managed to avoid a shutout by scoring in the fifth inning, but still lost by the 10-run rule. Kinsey Browning, Jackie Carey and Suede Shirley had hits and Taylor McKoy, Alicia Finn and Maty Montgomery pitched. Sweetwater committed four errors.
