Sweetwaterâ€™s basketball teams may well have to win at Monahans today in order to hold on to any realistic hopes of a District 4-3A playoff berth.
Thatâ€™s certainly true for the Sweetwater boys (1-4), who are two games behind Monahans (3-2), which is currently in third place.
But the Sweetwater girls (3-4) also need a win as they trail Big Spring (4-3) by a game for the No. 3 spot after losing three straight. They face a Monahans team that is 0-7, and Sweetwater probably has to win tonight and at home this Friday against 1-6 Snyder to have a realistic shot of getting to the playoffs.
Sweetwaterâ€™s junior varsi-ty girls will be 21-0 when they go to Monahans today.
Sweetwater (7-0 in dis-trict) needs three more wins to have a perfect season after rolling to a 47-5 win at Greenwood Friday. Shaneese Brown and Abby McPherson had 10 points while Cierra Knox and Morgan Whitley had eight, Maddie Jones five, Jasmine Reddic four and Jaya Adkins and Nisha Williams one. Sweetwater led 29-1 at halftime and 40-3 after three periods of play.
