Mustangs score five times in final tuneup

August 23, 2013

The spread offense was a big change for Sweetwater’s 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 — even having fun with it.
After managing just one score in its opening scrimmage at Wichita Falls Hir-schi, Sweetwater’s offense scored on its first two plays against San Angelo Lake View in Thursday’s final scrimmage at the Bowl. And both scores came in spec-tacular fashion.

Mustangs host final scrimmage vs. L-View

August 22, 2013

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 today’s final preseason scrimmage vs. San Angelo Lake View will help to decide who to have on the field when those players need a break.
“We want them to have the mentality to be able to play in the fourth quarter,” he said. “We’re looking at some players that will give our starters a breather. They need as much experi-ence as possible.”

Lady Stangs surge by Ster. City

August 21, 2013

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.
