The start of a new year means the high school bas-ketball season is about to enter the critical stage.
Thatâ€™s certainly true for Nolan County as girls teams from Sweetwater, Highland and Roscoe all begin district play tonight.
Sweetwater (14-9) plays at Big Spring (11-10) start-ing at 6:15 p.m. It will be the first game of 2013 for the Lady Mustangs, who have been idle since going 2-2 at the Slaton tournament this past weekend.
Sweetwater opened the tournament with victories over Tahoka (52-30) and Petersburg (48-33), but lost to Slaton 49-32 and Whitharral 44-22 in its last two games.
On Thursday, Sweetwa-terâ€™s Mustangs began 2013 by beating Coahoma for their sixth straight win. And as the final 66-37 score will attest, it wasnâ€™t close.
