Mustangs hold on to finish off Pampa

May 13, 2013

LUBBOCK — It would be hard for Sweetwater to complain too much after the Mustangs finished off their best-of-3 area round playoff series against Pampa in just two games on Saturday with an 8-6 win.
But getting the sweep at Lubbock Christian Univer-sity’s Hays Field was certainly challenging — and more than a bit frustrating.

Wylie’s Patrick Walker and Glen Rose’s Blake Eschbach, who beat out Nemir by finishing 1-2 at the regional meet, placed sixth and seventh at state, respectively.

Clift silences Pampa bats in 1-0 victory

May 13, 2013

WOODROW — As they say, better late than never.
Everything about Game 1 of Sweetwater’s area playoff against Pampa wound up being way behind schedule on Friday, and that isn’t just a reference to the fact that it began almost an hour-and-a-half later than planned — and at a different location — due to inclement weather at Lubbock Christian Univ-ersity that forced both teams to scramble for another field to play on.
