Shane Mobley, who is beginning his second year as Sweetwaterâ€™s head football coach, says he will be looking for good execution when his Mustangs go to Wichita Falls today for their first of two scrimmages.
About 85 players will play in todayâ€™s scrimmage vs. Wichita Falls Hirschi at Memorial Stadium. The JV and freshmen will start it off about 6 p.m., with varsity players taking the field about one hour later.
â€śLast year, we were just teaching them how to run pass routes (on offense) and it was a real big change,â€ť said Mobley.
After splitting a dual match here Tuesday, the Sweetwater High School volleyball team completed a brief homestand Thursday by losing to Abilene Cooper as they were swept 3-0.
Kayla Chowning (six kills), Shaneese Brown (five kills) and Kensi Chowning (five kills) led the Lady Mustangs (2-2 overall), who now go to Abilene to play in the Bev Ball Classic which will be played today and Saturday.
Against Cooper, Sweet-water struggled on offense.
Its best showing came in Game 3 with 18 points, after losing 13-25 and 6-25 to begin the match.
Sweetwater Young Guns, an 11-under travel team, recently won the Abilene Summer Slam Tournament. Sweetwater beat Abileneâ€™s Diablos 8-6, tied Windthorst 6-6, beat Odessa Texas Blaze 10-2 and then Windthorst 10-2 for the title.
