After a wait of 15 years â€” plus a 1 1/2-week break since ending its regular season â€” Sweetwaterâ€™s softball team returns to the playoffs when it plays Iowa Park in a Class 3A bi-district matchup at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
The winner of the one-game playoff in Graham will face Burleson Centennial in the area round next week. Sweetwater, which is mak-ing only its third postseas-on appearance in school history and first since 1997, comes in with a 15-11 record and finished third in District 5-3A with a 4-4 record.
