Sweetwaterâ€™s 10-11 year-olds won their game in dra-matic fashion, but the other three local all-star teams all fell short in District 5 Little League All-Star tournament action on Tuesday.
Snyder led the 10-11 year-olds 1-0 entering the sixth inning, but Sweetwater won it 3-1 on a 3-run, walk-off homer by Rylen Moncada in their first of four District 5 pool play games. Sweetwa-ter plays again Thursday vs. Wylie at 8 p.m. at Wylie.
But Sweetwaterâ€™s 9-10, 11-12 (Little League) and 13-14 (Junior League) all-star teams all went down to defeat Tuesday in their pool play games.
The Sweetwater High School baseball team was recently honored with a resolution by the Sweetwater ISD for making the playoffs. Several members of the team were present at last weekâ€™s school board meeting and were presented individual resolutions.
