Lady Mustangs’ foe has SW ties

February 12, 2013

You might think that the only local connection the Sweetwater girls’ basketball team has to Fort Stockton — which will be facing the Lady Mustangs in a Class 3A bi-district playoff at 6:30 p.m. today at Sonora — is that the schools were 4A district rivals for many years back in the ‘80s and ‘90s.
But it turns out that the Sweetwater-Fort Stockton connection is much closer, because the Prowlers’ head coach has local ties.
Vic Ivy is now in his third year as head girls coach at Fort Stockton.
