Mustangs set new milestone with win

May 14, 2013

Sweetwater’s 8-6 victory over Pampa on Saturday at Lubbock Christian Univer-sity marked a new milestone for the baseball program, and matched another.
The win completed a two-game sweep for the Mustangs (19-14) in the teams’ best-of-3 area playoff, and advanced them to the regional quarterfinals for only the third time since the program was resumed back in 1988 following a 23-year absence.
This year’s team, however, is the first to ever win more than one playoff series.

Highland’s state run is top story of 2012-13 school year

May 14, 2013

When you make it to state for the first time in school history, it’s a big deal, even if the trip doesn’t end on a happy note. So while their dream of a state champion-ship was ended by Saltillo in the semifinals, it was still a very good year for the High-land girls basketball team.
Under the guidance of head coach Shea Baucom, the Lady Hornets went 31-5 in becoming the first Nolan County basketball team in four years to go to Austin.
Their journey was the top Nolan County sports story of the 2012-13 school year.

Sweetwater-Andrews playoff times announced

May 13, 2013

Sweetwater and Andrews will meet in a best-of-3 regional quarterfinal baseball playoff series at Lubbock Christian University's Hays Field this weekend. The teams play Game 1 on Friday at 6 p.m.; Game 2 will be played Saturday starting at 2 p.m.; and Game 3, if necessary, begins 30 minutes after Game 2 ends.

Mustangs hold on to finish off Pampa

May 13, 2013

LUBBOCK — It would be hard for Sweetwater to complain too much after the Mustangs finished off their best-of-3 area round playoff series against Pampa in just two games on Saturday with an 8-6 win.
But getting the sweep at Lubbock Christian Univer-sity’s Hays Field was certainly challenging — and more than a bit frustrating.
The Mustangs (19-14) not only had to endure two weather delays that totalled more than an hour, but also had to weather a final-inning storm of their own as Pampa (13-14) scored three times and had the go-ahead run at third base.

Nemir just misses 3A state medal

May 13, 2013

AUSTIN — Nick Nemir of Sweetwater ended his high school career by narrowly missing out on a Class 3A medal Saturday night at the UIL state track meet.
However, his fourth-place finish in the boys 300-meter hurdles with a time of 39.36 seconds beat out both of his competitors from Region I. Wylie’s Patrick Walker and Glen Rose’s Blake Eschbach, who beat out Nemir by finishing 1-2 at the regional meet, placed sixth and seventh at state, respectively.

Clift silences Pampa bats in 1-0 victory

May 13, 2013

WOODROW — As they say, better late than never.
Everything about Game 1 of Sweetwater’s area playoff against Pampa wound up being way behind schedule on Friday, and that isn’t just a reference to the fact that it began almost an hour-and-a-half later than planned — and at a different location — due to inclement weather at Lubbock Christian Univ-ersity that forced both teams to scramble for another field to play on.

Five capture state medals in Class 1A-D2

May 13, 2013

AUSTIN — Five Nolan County athletes came away with state medals Friday at the Class 1A, Division II meet, and there were three other fourth-place finishes as well.
Blackwell’s Jayden Jones won a first-place gold medal in the boys pole vault with a leap of 13 feet, six inches. Highland’s Michael Hyde won a third-place bronze in the same event at 12-6.

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.

UIL athletes head for Austin

May 9, 2013

Nolan County will be well-represented at this year’s UIL track and field meet.
