Roscoeâ€™s football team currently sits atop the District 7-1A, Division II standings after a 47-6 win over Baird in its opener last week at Roscoe.
But for the Plowboys to improve their record to 2-0, they must find a way to beat a Cross Plains team tonight on its home turf.
And while Roscoe is 2-2 this season â€” matching its total wins for the past two seasons â€” the team is 0-2 on the road so far.
Here are recent results for the Sweetwater Middle School eighth grade White volleyball team:
Vs. Big Spring
Sweetwater â€˜Câ€™ lost 12-25, 4-11. Leading servers and points: Kalei Hayes 2, Addy Jones 2.
Sweetwater â€˜Bâ€™ lost 14-25, 23-25. Leading servers and points: Xaveria Clark 5, Caprice Cepeda 3, Avery Garcia 3.
Big Spring â€˜Bâ€™ tournament
Sweetwater lost to Monahans 22-25. 22-25. Leading servers and points: Caprice Cepeda 9, Dharma Hernandez 6, Ainsleigh Nelson 5, Alex Perez 3.
Five of District 4-3Aâ€™s six football teams have finished the non-district portion of their schedules and are idle this week, with Monahans â€” which takes on Canyon â€” the lone exception.
The second, and by far most important, half of the season gets started when the teams begin district ac-tion next week.
So now â€” while the teams (except for Monahans) get a breather â€”seems as good a time as any to take a look at the teams (including Sweetwater), how they have fared so far and what their chances are in one of the stateâ€™s best 3A districts.
Head coach: Hugh San-difer
Itâ€™s taken awhile, but all three Nolan County football teams outside of Sweetwa-ter are hitting their stride.
The good news for Roscoe is twofold: not only are the Plowboys off to a 2-2 start after winning a total of two games the past two seasons, but â€” and much more im-portantly â€” they are 1-0 in District 7-1A, Division II after a 47-6 win over Baird this past Friday.
Roscoe will now travel to Cross Plains â€“ also 1-0 in district â€” on Friday as the Plowboys try to build on last weekâ€™s success.
The Mustang Baseball Classic golf tournament will be held on Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Sweetwater Country Club with a 9 a.m. shotgun start.
