Sweetwater High Schoolâ€™s boys begin play when they and the girls travel to Early for a basketball doublehea-der today.
The Mustangs return two all-district players â€” first-team honoree Kaleb Hoover and second-team pick Dylan Bennett â€” as well as two who got honorable mention, Isaiah McGee and Rhett Torres, from a 13-15 squad. With that talent, the Mustangs are hoping to improve on their fifth-place record (2-8) in district.
The seventh grade and eighth grade Red girls teams both won championships at Sweetwater Middle Schoolâ€™s girls basketball tournament this past weekend.

Itâ€™s been 17 years since a Blackwell football team got past the first round of the Six-Man playoffs. But it took less than 24 hours af-ter the Hornetsâ€™ 70-26 win over Lueders-Avoca this past Friday to find out who they would play in the regional round this week.
According to Blackwell coach Clint Lowry, his team will play Grandfalls-Royalty at 7 p.m. Friday in Rankin. Grandfalls-Royalty will be considered the home team for the contest.
Both teams come into the game ranked in the top 10 in Six-Man Division II.

WESTBROOK â€” It took Blackwell a little while to work out the kinks Friday when it faced Lueders-Avoca in a Six-Man, Division II bi-district playoff.
But then that wasnâ€™t too surprising, since it was only the Hornetsâ€™ second game since Oct. 11.
Once the machine start-ed running smoothly, how-ever, it became unstoppa-ble as Blackwell overcame a slow start for a 70-26 win.
SANDS â€” The Highland girls basketball team, ranked No. 1 in Class 1A, Division II by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches, improved its season record to 4-0 on Friday with a 64-49 win over Smyer.
Five different players â€” Beth Richburg (12), Sierra Allen (11), Madison Moseley (11), Hannah Allen (10) and Sydny Helbert (10) â€” scored in double figures for the Lady Hornets, whose four wins have all been by at least 11 points. Schyler Kimbrell had eight points and Kay-lee Martin two.

Blackwell has a chance to do something today when it faces Lueders-Avoca in the Six-Man Division II playoffs that it hasnâ€™t done since the 1990s â€” come away with a victory in the postseason.
They get another chance to do that at 7:30 p.m. in Westbrook. And the Horn-ets (9-1) â€” who have played an actual game only once in the past month â€” will prob-ably be chomping at the bit to face Lueders-Avoca (7-3) in bi-district.
