Athletes in softball, base-ball, golf and tennis see district action for Sweetwater today, while Highland will be hosting a pre-district meet which Roscoe and Blackwell will also attend.
And that will be just the start of very busy weekend for Nolan County athletes as district golf and tennis are also on tap Saturday, plus the junior high teamsâ€™ season-ending district meet.
Sweetwaterâ€™s softball and baseball teams go to Snyder for key District 4-3A games when they return from a seven-day break today.
The action begins with Sweetwater and Snyder battling for the outright 4-3A lead in the softball race at 5 p.m. Both have 4-1 records and a one-game lead over two teams after the first half of district play. Right behind are Greenwood and Big Spring, each at 3-2. Sweetwater beat Snyder, 11-8, when the teams began district play on March 15 at Sweetwater. The Lady Mus-tangsâ€™ only district loss has been against Greenwood.
Kaleb Hoover of Sweet-water has been named to the Abilene Reporter-News All-Big Country boys bas-ketball team for Class 3A, while his Sweetwater teammate Dylan Bennett received honorable mention to the Class 3A boys team.
Hoover, a 6-1 junior for-ward, also made the team as a sophomore. He averaged 16.4 points and eight rebounds in earning first team all-district honors. Hoover as a sophomore was named the district newcomer of the year. This season, he shot 41 percent from the field and 61 percent at the line after getting a late start due to an injury.
