The Sweetwater High School varsity girls basketball team hosts Big Spring in a District 5-3A game at 6 p.m. today at Mustang Gym. The varsity boys game follows at 7:30 p.m. The 2011-12 girls team includes, from left, Hayley Brownlow, Kendra Crosson, Janell Walker, Kelsi Crosson, Kinsey Browning, Alicia Finn, Candice Hernandez, Elise Lawrence, Kathleen Campbell, Suede Shirley and Shelby Cason. Not pictured are head coach Candice Wyatt and assistant coaches Amy Clark, Al Miller and Jessica Withrow.
After losing District 5-3A contests to a pair of Wylie squads ranked in the stateâ€™s top 25 on Friday, the Sweetwater High School boys and girls will try again today as they entertain Big Spring. This time, the odds may be more favorable as Big Spring, like Sweetwater, is also winless in District 5-3A play.
The girls (0-2, 14-13) tip off at 6 p.m. against a Big Spring team that is also off to an 0-2 start, although the Lady Steers have an impressive 16-7 season record.
Big Spring has played a tougher schedule, facing No. 1-ranked Wylie and No. 7 Brownwood so far.
