‘Dogs survive SW rally to take control at top of 4-3A

April 22, 2013

After one of the wildest finishes of the 2013 high school season, there are now two baseball teams sharing first place in District 4-3A.
But Wylie, not Sweetwa-ter, is now in control after the Bulldogs survived a five-run rally by the Mustangs in the seventh inning to leave Sweetwater with a 10-9 win on Saturday.
Both Wylie and Sweetwa-ter are now 7-2 in 4-3A, but the Bulldogs — by virtue of winning both head-to-head meetings — hold the tie-breaker for the No. 1 seed.

Softballers lose on 2nd 3-run homer

April 22, 2013

Even though the No. 2 spot in District 4-3A was already assured, Saturday’s 6-5 loss to Wylie is not the way Sweetwater’s softball team wanted to end its regular season heading into the Class 3A playoffs.
The Lady Mustangs — who face Pecos in a best-of-three series starting Thurs-day — rallied from an early 3-0 deficit by pushing across five unanswered runs for a 5-3 lead over Wylie head-ing into the visitors’ final at bat in the seventh. But Sweetwater had no answer for Makenley Lunsford.

SHS teams are making history

April 18, 2013

Having successful baseball and softball teams at Sweetwater High School is something people here haven’t been accustomed to seeing on a regular basis.
In fact, having both teams in the playoffs the same year has never happened. That’s why the past week at SHS has been, well ... historic.
Dating back to 1996, the first year Sweetwater played softball, each of the teams had been to the playoffs on three occasions — but never in the same year.
For most of that 17-year period, the losses — especially against district competition — have far outnumbered the wins.

Mustangs end playoff drought, grab outright lead with 10-5 win

April 17, 2013

MONAHANS — For the first time since 2004, Sweetwater’s baseball team is in the Class 3A playoffs.
But wait, there’s more.
After Tuesday’s 10-5 win at Monahans — coupled with Snyder’s 7-4 victory over Wylie — the Mustangs find themselves all alone atop District 4-3A.
But it took a late rally for Sweetwater (7-1) to defeat Monahans, which had taken a 5-4 lead in the bottom of the sixth and was just three outs from an upset victory.
