After onesided district-opening defeats â€” by nearly identical scores â€” last week, Sweetwater and Greenwood will have a sense of urgency when they meet on Friday.
Yes, itâ€™s true: the Univer-sity Interscholastic League now allows four of the six teams from District 4-3A into the playoffs. But the Sweetwater-Greenwood loser will drop to 0-2, and be squarely on the outside looking in with just three games left in the season.
Sweetwater has now lost three straight after a 2-1 start, and last weekâ€™s 41-14 loss at Snyder was its first blowout defeat of the year.
Roscoe will go to Ranger this Friday with high hopes of getting on a late-season push to make the playoffs.
After back-to-back losses to Cross Plains and Albany the past two weeks, the Plowboys (2-4 overall and 1-2 in District 7-1A, Div. II) are starting a two-week per-iod in which they appear to have an excellent chance of picking up a pair of wins.
Sweetwaterâ€™s volleyball team, coming off a crucial road win at Snyder this past Friday, found itself in a big hole against Mona-hans almost from the start here Tuesday and fell to the Lady Loboes â€” the No. 10-ranked team in the state â€” in three games.
Monahans won 25-8, 25-9, 25-13 in Sweetwa-terâ€™s most lopsided defeat in district play as the Lady Mustangs dropped to 2-4 in district play following their win over Snyder.

Sweetwaterâ€™s varsity volleyball team is 2-3 in district play after defeating Snyder in four games Friday.
The Lady Mustangs return to action when they host Monahans at 6:15 p.m. today. Shaneese Brown, Kayla Chowning and Morgan Gomez were voted as the teamâ€™s top individual performers against Snyder.
Brown led Sweetwater with 15 kills and four blocks, and also had two digs in the match. Chowning had 10 kills and 12 digs plus two service aces, while Gomez finished with a team-high 23 digs for the Lady Mustangs.
