Lubbock Christian Universityâ€™s Hays Field, Lubbock
Sweetwater 19-14; Andrews 21-15
Game 1: 6 p.m. Friday (Sweetwater designated as the home team)
Game 2: 2 p.m. Satur-day (Andrews designated as the home team)

Sweetwater was No. 2 seed in District 4-3A de-spite being co-champion with Wylie; Andrews was the second-place team in District 2-3A.
How they got here:
Sweetwaterâ€™s 8-6 victory over Pampa on Saturday at Lubbock Christian Univer-sity marked a new milestone for the baseball program, and matched another.
The win completed a two-game sweep for the Mustangs (19-14) in the teamsâ€™ best-of-3 area playoff, and advanced them to the regional quarterfinals for only the third time since the program was resumed back in 1988 following a 23-year absence.
This yearâ€™s team, however, is the first to ever win more than one playoff series.
When you make it to state for the first time in school history, itâ€™s a big deal, even if the trip doesnâ€™t end on a happy note. So while their dream of a state champion-ship was ended by Saltillo in the semifinals, it was still a very good year for the High-land girls basketball team.
Under the guidance of head coach Shea Baucom, the Lady Hornets went 31-5 in becoming the first Nolan County basketball team in four years to go to Austin.
Their journey was the top Nolan County sports story of the 2012-13 school year.
