No. 8 Lady Pirates conquer Sweetwater

February 18, 2013

POST — The good start needed for Sweetwater to stay with the No. 8-ranked girls team in Class 3A failed to materialize on Friday.
Instead, Lubbock Cooper jumped out to a 13-0 lead over the Lady Mustangs be-fore they could score, and the lead ballooned from there as the Lady Pirates beat Sweetwater, 74-37.
So the Lady Mustangs’ best season since 2005 — the last time they got to the playoffs — ends at 21-15.
Lubbock Cooper (30-4) will face Levelland — which upset No. 17 Wylie 42-37 in the nightcap of Friday’s playoff doubleheader — in the regional quarterfinals.

Lady Hornets roll while Hornets get No. 2 district seed

February 18, 2013

Highland was a double winner Friday, as the girls advanced to the Class 1A, Division II regional quarterfinals by beating Zephyr while the boys knocked off Hermleigh for the No. 2 playoff seed in District 13-A, Division II.
The girls, who earned a bye for winning the 13-A title, defeated Zephyr 48-29 in an area playoff at Clyde.
Highland (28-4) was led by Sierra Allen, who had 16 points, and Hannah Allen, who scored 11. With the win, the Lady Hornets will take on Water Valley in the regional quarterfinals this week. The time, date and location of the playoff was not known at press time.

Tall order today for SW

February 15, 2013

It’s taken eight years to get back to this point.
Now Sweetwater finds itself in a similar situa-tion to what it faced the last time a girls team ad-vanced to the Class 3A area basketball playoffs — a highly-ranked squad that will be heavily favored to end their season.
Back in 2005, the Lady Mustangs faced No. 1-ranked Canyon and lost 67-26. Today, they meet No. 8 Lubbock Cooper in the area round hoping for a much better result.
But they know they will have to play their best to pull off the upset.
