A 14-0 victory over Baird this past week did more than just end a long Roscoe losing streak that stretched back to the end of the 2010 season. It also put the Plowboys (1-3 overall) in the top half of the District 7-1A, Division II standings.
Now that Roscoe has finally tasted success, coach Jonathan Haseloffâ€™s team hopes to build on it and gets to do so tonight when it hosts Cross Plains (1-0, 2-2). The Buffaloes are also coming off a win after their 26-0 victory over Gorman last Friday.
Itâ€™s been awhile since the Sweetwater High School tennis team has seen action due in part to the weather. But if Mother Nature permits, the team is scheduled to play at a two-day tournament in Andrews today and Saturday.
Sweetwater last played on Sept. 25 at Abilene Cooper, and played it close only to lose 11-8. Results follow:
Girls doubles â€” Jenny Medellin and Kristen Casto won 8-5; Gewel Cherry and Teresa Perez-Poe won 8-6; Vida Gamez and Ashley Heaton won 8-0.
Sweetwater High Schoolâ€™s three volleyball teams will continue a three-game road swing today when they go to Midland Greenwood, with the varsity match set to tip off at 5 p.m.
A win today will be critical to Sweetwaterâ€™s playoff hopes after the Lady Mus-tangs lost to Wylie â€” the No. 1 team in the state in Class 3A â€” on Tuesday to fall to 1-3 in District 4-3A with six games left. Greenwood is also 1-3, but is coming off its first district win Tuesday against Snyder, also the only team Sweetwater has beaten in district play.
