The Sweetwater baseball team has played its share of exciting games this season. Four of the Mustangsâ€™ five postseason games â€” and all four victories â€” have been decided by two runs or less.
Two of the most drama-tic finishes came in March against Andrews, which will play Sweetwater in a best-of-3 regional quarterfinal starting with Game 1 Friday at Lubbock Christian Uni-versityâ€™s Hays Field. In both cases, the visiting team had a big early lead, only to see the home team rally and pull out a walk-off victory in the final inning.
Blackwell and Highland this week recognized top athletes from the past year.
Highlandâ€™s Lora Stewart and Ron Covington were the recipients of the Fighting Hornet award. Also, Hornet awards for the top girls athlete went to Stewart in cross country, Sierra Allen in basketball and Beth Richburg in track; and for the boys, Michael Hyde in football, Covington in basketball and Sheldon Hall in track.
A Lady Mustang Bas-ketball Camp will be held June 3-6 at the middle school gym on 305 Lamar Street. The camp is for students who have completed grades 2-8. Camp sessions will be from 9 a.m. to noon. The cost is $35 which in-cludes a T-shirt. Pre-regis-tration is appreciated.
