Pictured here are the members of Blackwellâs spirit team who attended summer camps: high school cheerleaders Krista Clower, Hailey Bennett, Stephanie Metcalf, captain Summer Mull, Shianne Solis and Halee Sanderson won two trophies at Angelo State University in the small varsity division for third place in Extreme Routine and Champion Chant.
Clower, a freshman, and eighth grader Shelby Panzer made the All American squad at the Angelo State University camp and qualified to march in a Thanksgiving Day Parade to be in November at Houston.
Here are individual res-ults from Sweetwaterâs freshman and JV scrimmages against San Angelo Lake View. Both teams will begin the regular seasons on Thursday here against Eastland starting at 5 and 6:30 p.m., respectively.
Michael Green â 2 TD catches; Jordan McGee â 1 TD catch; Hunter Mobley â 3 TD passes; Dylan Ausborn â 2 rushing TDs.
Hunter Mobley â 1 inter-ception; Javier Olguin and Carlos Gallegos â 1 sack.
The spread offense was a big change for Sweetwaterâs football program when it was installed by newly-hired head coach Shane Mobley a year ago.
But it seems the Mustang players are finally adapting â even having fun with it.
After managing just one score in its opening scrimmage at Wichita Falls Hir-schi, Sweetwaterâs offense scored on its first two plays against San Angelo Lake View in Thursdayâs final scrimmage at the Bowl. And both scores came in spec-tacular fashion.
Shane Mobley says he al-ready knows who his start-ers will be on Aug. 30 when Sweetwater opens the 2013 football season by traveling to Eastland.
But the second-year Mus-tang head coach said todayâs final preseason scrimmage vs. San Angelo Lake View will help to decide who to have on the field when those players need a break.
âWe want them to have the mentality to be able to play in the fourth quarter,â he said. âWeâre looking at some players that will give our starters a breather. They need as much experi-ence as possible.â

After relatively-easy wins in their first two games against Sterling City, the, Sweetwater volleyball team was almost pushed to the limit here Tuesday.
The visiting Lady Eagles won the third game 25-19, then ran off three consecu-tive points to take a 24-21 lead in Game 4.
But in a remarkable turn-around, Sweetwater scored the next five points to close out Sterling City and win the match at Mustang Gym.
The Lady Mustangs (3-7) ended with a flourish by getting a service ace from Kensi Chowning, one of two freshmen on a very young team that has just two returning lettermen from 2012.
Sweetwater High Schoolâs volleyball team competed at the Bev Ball Classic held this past weekend in Abilene.
Here are team scores and individual results from the Lady Mustangsâ matches:
Abilene High def. Sweetwater
2-0 (25-12, 25-11)
Kills: Kayla Chowning 3, Shaneese Brown 2.
Assists: Morgan Gomez 2, Aly Heredia 2, Shaneese Brown 1, Kensi Chowning 1, Ziggy Collins 1, Maddie Jones 1.

Sweetwaterâs West Texas Stampede softball team recently won first place at an 8-under tournament in Snyder.
Despite being one player short of a full team, Sweetwater played eight games at the one-day event and beat Abileneâs âDa Heatâ twice for the title after losing to them in the semifinals.

WICHITA FALLS â The best way to describe Sweet-waterâs opening scrimmage against Wichita Falls Hir-schi on Friday might be to use the title of a Clint Eastwood movie.
There was the good, the bad, and the ugly.
The good: a productive passing game led by number one quarterback Kaegan Jeffrey, who completed 13 of 18 passes for 194 yards and Sweetwaterâs only score, a 1-yard toss to Kaleb Hoov-er. Hoover (4 for 64), Bray Amos (3 for 68) and Isaiah McGee (4 for 47) were Jef-freyâs favorite targets.
Shane Mobley, who is beginning his second year as Sweetwaterâs 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 todayâs 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.
âLast year, we were just teaching them how to run pass routes (on offense) and it was a real big change,â said Mobley.
