Though it is still strug-gling to score runs, Sweet-waterâ€™s baseball team final-ly has its first district win â€” thanks to the performance of its most reliable starting pitcher here Tuesday.
Senior Kris Mayes, in fact, hurled the second no-hitter of his high school career in a 3-2 win over Big Spring as the Mustangs (1-3) pulled out of a last-place tie with the Steers and kept their playoff hopes alive.
Because of failed scoring opportunities here Tuesday, Sweetwaterâ€™s softball team let a chance to be the undisputed second-place team in District 5-3A slip away as it lost to Big Spring, 5-1.
Sweetwater had eight hits, but produced just one run as the Lady Mustangs fell to 2-3 in district. Sweetwater is now in a three-way tie for second place with Snyder and Big Spring, with Wylie â€” which comes here Friday â€” just a half-game behind all three teams at 1-3.
