A flag honoring the 2012 Sweetwater softball team for making the playoffs was unveiled in a brief pre-game ceremony on Friday at the Jerry Collins Complex.
Then it was the 2013 Lady Mustangsâ€™ turn to make a impression, and they were up to the challenge in their District 4-3A opener against Snyder.
After falling behind 2-0, Sweetwater sent 14 batters to the plate in the bottom of the second inning against three pitchers and scored 10 runs to take a commanding 10-2 lead. After that, it was just a matter of bringing it home as the Lady Mustangs held on for an 11-8 victory.
After a lackluster effort one day earlier at Lubbock Estacado, the Sweetwater baseball team got back into the win column at home Friday when it faced former district rival Brownwood.
The Mustangs got an ex-cellent pitching effort from sophomore J.P. Poe in their final non-district game in beating the Lions, 5-3, at Newman Park. They also overcame a shaky defensive outing as they had six errors in the contest.
