More Mustang magic?

May 10, 2013

Getting to the playoffs and then beating Fabens in bi-district last weekend was, for Sweetwater’s players, the culmination of a dream they’ve had since their first Little League game.
But now there’s more to come, starting today when the Mustangs (17-14) begin their best-of-3 area series with Pampa at 7:30 p.m. at Lubbock Christian Uni-versity’s Hays Field.
“I talked to some of these guys when they were 9 and 10 years old about setting a goal of going to the playoffs when they were in high school,” said head coach Roland Herrera. “We defi-nitely don’t want to stop.

Mustangs steal their way to next round of playoffs

May 6, 2013

CRANE — Game 3 of the best-of-3 bi-district playoff between Sweetwater and Fabens was tied 6-6 in the top of the seventh inning on Saturday. The Mustangs had the go-ahead runner, Bray Amos, at third base with Shawn Campbell at bat and looking at a 2-2 count with two outs.
But then, all of a sudden, Amos streaked for home as Fabens pitcher Eric Ochoa was still in his windup.
Amos scored, Sweetwater was suddenly up 7-6, and all that was left was for Mus-tang pitcher Cole Maxwell to get three more outs.

Pampa ends SW’s run in area round

May 6, 2013

LUBBOCK — Sweetwater got the first hit in Friday’s Region I-3A area softball playoff game with Pampa on a one-out single by Mor-gan Gomez in the bottom of the first inning.
But it took the Lady Mus-tangs another five innings to get their second hit, and by then Pampa was firmly in control as the Lady Har-vesters ended Sweetwater’s year with a 5-0 victory.

‘Stangs hold off Fabens for win in Game 1

May 6, 2013

CRANE — Despite some missed opportunities, the Sweetwater baseball team got its first playoff series in nine years off to a success-ful start Friday.
But the Mustangs’ 5-4 bi-district win over Fabens in Game 1 of their best-of-3 series was suspenseful right down to the end.
Sweetwater stranded 10 runners in the contest, nine of them in the last four in-nings, but still was able to rally from a brief 3-2 defi-cit — and guarantee itself two chances Saturday at Crane High School’s field to advance to the Class 3A area playoffs next week.

Lady ‘Stangs face tough Pampa squad

May 3, 2013

Being the coach of the first Sweetwater High School softball team to win a play-off game may make him the answer to a trivia question some day.
However, Tony Heredia is doing his best to put the Lady Mustangs’ 11-1 win over Pecos in the past and get his team ready to face a tough Pampa team in the Region I-3A area playoffs at 6 p.m. today at Lubbock’s Coronado High School.
“We really haven’t even talked about it,” he said. “We’re proud of the fact we won a bi-district championship, but now we’re ready for the next challenge.”
