MONAHANS â€” For the first time since 2004, Sweetwaterâ€™s baseball team is in the Class 3A playoffs.
But wait, thereâ€™s more.
After Tuesdayâ€™s 10-5 win at Monahans â€” coupled with Snyderâ€™s 7-4 victory over Wylie â€” the Mustangs find themselves all alone atop District 4-3A.
But it took a late rally for Sweetwater (7-1) to defeat Monahans, which had taken a 5-4 lead in the bottom of the sixth and was just three outs from an upset victory.

MONAHANS â€” Sweet-waterâ€™s softball team came into Monahans on Friday having clinched a playoff berth, but still with a chance to claim at least a share of the District 4-3A title.
And after rallying from an early four-run deficit to tie the game at 4-4, the Lady Mustangsâ€™ dream was still alive. But missed opportunities to take the lead led to a disappointing finish, as Monahans scored the winning run in the seventh inning on a walk-off single to claim a 5-4 victory.
