Sweetwater High Schoolâs volleyball team plays a dual match at Graham today after splitting its six games at a tournament in San Angelo over the weekend.

Sweetwaterâs Bray Amos has been named as a wide receiver to the All-Big Coun-try preseason Super Team announced Sunday by the Abilene Reporter-News.
The 5-7, 160-pound jun-ior had 50 catches this past season for 652 yards. Sweetwaterâs Isaiah McGee (defensive back), Kaegan Jeffrey (quarterback) and Kaleb Hoover (wide recei-ver) were listed as âothers to watchâ by the newspaper, as were two other Nolan County athletes â Roscoe linebacker Vincent Pantoja and Blackwell defensive back Mason Magness.

Sweetwater High School begins classes Monday, but many students were at Mustang Bowl on Thursday as part of âMeet the Mustangsâ following the football scrimmage with San Angelo Lake View.
Introduced were members of the SHS band, cheerleaders and fall sports teams as well as student trainers and coaches.
Pictured here are the members of Blackwellâs spirit team who attended summer camps: high school cheerleaders Krista Clower, Hailey Bennett, Stephanie Metcalf, captain Summer Mull, Shianne Solis and Halee Sanderson won two trophies at Angelo State University in the small varsity division for third place in Extreme Routine and Champion Chant.
Clower, a freshman, and eighth grader Shelby Panzer made the All American squad at the Angelo State University camp and qualified to march in a Thanksgiving Day Parade to be in November at Houston.
Here are individual res-ults from Sweetwaterâs freshman and JV scrimmages against San Angelo Lake View. Both teams will begin the regular seasons on Thursday here against Eastland starting at 5 and 6:30 p.m., respectively.
Michael Green â 2 TD catches; Jordan McGee â 1 TD catch; Hunter Mobley â 3 TD passes; Dylan Ausborn â 2 rushing TDs.
Hunter Mobley â 1 inter-ception; Javier Olguin and Carlos Gallegos â 1 sack.
The spread offense was a big change for Sweetwaterâs football program when it was installed by newly-hired head coach Shane Mobley a year ago.
But it seems the Mustang players are finally adapting â even having fun with it.
After managing just one score in its opening scrimmage at Wichita Falls Hir-schi, Sweetwaterâs offense scored on its first two plays against San Angelo Lake View in Thursdayâs final scrimmage at the Bowl. And both scores came in spec-tacular fashion.
Shane Mobley says he al-ready knows who his start-ers will be on Aug. 30 when Sweetwater opens the 2013 football season by traveling to Eastland.
But the second-year Mus-tang head coach said todayâs final preseason scrimmage vs. San Angelo Lake View will help to decide who to have on the field when those players need a break.
âWe want them to have the mentality to be able to play in the fourth quarter,â he said. âWeâre looking at some players that will give our starters a breather. They need as much experi-ence as possible.â

SATURDAY, AUG. 24
After relatively-easy wins in their first two games against Sterling City, the, Sweetwater volleyball team was almost pushed to the limit here Tuesday.
The visiting Lady Eagles won the third game 25-19, then ran off three consecu-tive points to take a 24-21 lead in Game 4.
But in a remarkable turn-around, Sweetwater scored the next five points to close out Sterling City and win the match at Mustang Gym.
The Lady Mustangs (3-7) ended with a flourish by getting a service ace from Kensi Chowning, one of two freshmen on a very young team that has just two returning lettermen from 2012.
