A total of six Sweetwater High School athletes have earned all-District 4-3A vol-leyball recognition for their outstanding play during the 2013 season.
Senior Aly Heredia and sophomore Morgan Gomez were named to the 4-3A first team, wihle seniors Kayla Chowning and Shaneese Brown both made the sec-ond team. Junior Maddie Jones and sophomore Mikeilah Foust earned all-district honorable mention. It was the first time any of the six Lady Mustangs have received all-district honors.
Sweetwater fell behind 22-10 at Abernathy in the teamsâ non-district girls basketball game Tuesday in part because of difficulties handling the press.

âWe had 24 turnovers,â said Sweetwater coach Al Miller, whose teamâs record dropped to 2-3. âWe kind of shot ourselves in the foot and we got outhustled a bit. They were a little quicker than we were.â
Sweetwaterâs boys basket-ball team is now 2-0 for the season after winning 43-37 at Stanton on Monday.
Sweetwater fell behind 15-13 after one quarter, but outscored its hosts 11-4 in the second period to go up 24-19 at halftime and led 35-30 after three quarters.
