When Sweetwaterâ€™s teams play host to Big Spring today at Mustang Gym, both ends of the District 4-3A double-header will be critical for the home team.
The 3-2 girls need a win over 2-3 Big Spring to avoid falling into a third-place tie, while the 1-2 boys will try to keep Big Spring (0-3) win-less in district and possibly gain a third-place tie with Greenwood (2-1), which will travel to 3-0 Monahans.
Members of the 2012-13 Sweetwater freshman girls basketball team are, standing from left, Ashley Parker, Elita Williams, Morgan Rudel, Hanna Hayes, Marissa Moncada, Caroline Guelker, Mickenzie Brownlow, Marissa Sanchez, head coach Jessica Withrow; seated, Payton Moore, Alaina Andrews, Abby Garcia, Kristi Ward, Kristen Brown.
This yearâ€™s team has a 10-6 overall record and ended the first half of District 4-3A play with a 3-2 mark. The Lady Mustangs begin the second half of district by hosting Big Spring at 7:30 p.m. today.
Sweetwaterâ€™s junior var-sity girls basketball team has a perfect 19-0 record entering todayâ€™s 5 p.m. game with Big Spring after winning 38-24 at Wylie this past Friday.
Cierra Knox had 14 points to lead Sweetwater (5-0 in district play), which led 16-12 at halftime and outscored Wylie 14-5 in the third quarter to open a 30-17 lead. Abby McPherson scored seven, Shaneese Brown six, Maddie Jones five, Bianca Castillo four and Nisha Williams two.
