Alexis Williams gets down on her knees to return a volley for Sweetwater in last Wednesdayâ€™s regular-season ending District 4-3A volleyball match against Snyder.

Class 3A met Class 1A on Tuesday when the Highland girls basketball team made the short trip to Sweetwater as both teams opened their 2013-14 seasons.

Mendez was in on nine tackles, three unassisted, and had an 81-yard fumble return for a touchdown in the teamâ€™s 28-9 win over Monahans.
