Lady Stangs lose, go to Wylie today

March 22, 2011

The good news for the Sweetwater softball team is that the Lady Mustangs will have less than 24 hours to dwell on Monday’s 11-9 defeat at Big Spring in their district opener.
Sweetwater (8-9 overall) is right back into 5-3A action when it plays at Wylie today beginning at 4:30 p.m.
Sweetwater trailed 7-6 when play resumed Monday against Big Spring with one out in Big Spring’s half of the fourth inning — in a game that began Friday only to be suspended due to lightning and heavy rain.

‘Stangs to visit Dogs in district opener

March 22, 2011

Things have soured the past two weeks for Sweetwater’s baseball team after a great start, but the one bright spot during its current slump came against Wylie in an 11-1 triumph.
Sweetwater (10-9-1) returns to Wylie for a rematch with the Bull-dogs at 4:30 p.m. today in the District 5-3A opener for both squads.
This has been an up-and-down year so far for the Mustangs, who got off to a 9-2-1 start only to drop seven of their last eight. Sweetwater ended its pre-district schedule by losing 6-0 to Class 2A Wall at Newman Park Friday.

Munoz places 8th at state

March 22, 2011

CORPUS CHRISTI — Sweetwater High School senior Bri Munoz placed eighth at the Class 3A state powerlifting meet Friday.
Munoz, competing in the 105-pound weight class, lifted a total of 570 pounds and had personal bests in all three categories in her first trip to the state meet. She had a 210-pound squat, 110-pound bench press and 250-pound dead lift.
Sweetwater’s other state competitor was also a sen-ior, Kelsey Painter, who was in the 132-pound weight class. Painter did not place, however, after she was disqualified in the squat. This was also the first state ap-pearance for Painter.

But the Loboettes then put together the winning rally with three runs in their half of the sixth inning to break the deadlock and held on for an 8-5 victory over the Lady Mustangs.
