The Sweetwater junior varsity and freshman boys basketball teams both came away with wins over Snyder here Tuesday in sub-varsity district contests.
The JV boys won 46-42 as they got 15 points from Trey Taylor and overcame a two-point deficit by outscoring Snyder 14-8 in the fourth quarter to improve to 2-2 in district and 15-8 overall. Brandon Howell and Quentin Wetsel had eight points, Mike McCoy six, Marquees Jenkins five and Deandre Gatson four for the Mustangs.
Sweetwater led 12-11 after one quarter, but trailed 25-23 at halftime and 34-32 after three quarters.
Sweetwaterâ€™s sub-varsity girls basketball teams came away with a split when they hosted Snyder on Tuesday.
The JV girls, who are 16-5 overall, lost for the first time in district play as they fell to Snyder, 52-49.
But the freshman girls fared much better, winning 44-24 to improve to 15-4 this season.
The Sweetwater High School varsity boys basketball team will complete the first half of District 5-3A play when it hosts Snyder at 7:30 p.m. today. Pictured, back row from left, are Patrick Palacios, Tino Martinez, Steven Torrez, Dylan Bennett, Kaleb Hoover, Gabe Medellin, Dylon Adames, Anthony Palacios, Taylor Jones; front row, Willie Norman, Brandon Hopkins (manager), Ashley Kincheloe (stats), assistant coach Jerrod Gee, head coach Al Hunt, Rachel Hunt (stats), Amy Witt (stats), and Cole Maxwell.

District 5-3A competition hasnâ€™t been a lot of fun so far for Sweetwaterâ€™s basketball teams, as neither the girls or boys has managed to get a win so far. But that could change when both squads host Snyder in a varsity doubleheader today.
BROWNWOOD â€” The Sweetwater girls basketball team ended the first half of district play by losing to Brownwoodâ€™s No. 7-ranked Lady Lions, 71-33, at the Brownwood gym.
The loss dropped the Lady Mustangs to 14-15 overall and 0-4 in district, while Brownwood is 21-6 overall and 3-1 in District 5-3A.
Brownwood is the second state-ranked team that Sweetwater has had to con-tend with in the district. Wylie (4-0), ranked No. 1 in Class 3A, lost a non-district game (62-60) on Friday to a school (THESA) that is the five-time defending home school national champions.
BROWNWOOD â€” Sweet-water held its own against Brownwood over the final two periods, but the Lions took a commanding 20-6 after one quarter and were never seriously threatened after that in claiming a 59-38 win Friday in District 5-3A boys basketball action.
The loss dropped Sweet-waterâ€™s records to 9-17 overall and 0-3 in district play. Brownwood is 7-17 overall, but now 2-0 in district play as the Lions pulled into a tie with Wylie â€”which was idle Friday â€” for the 5-3A lead.
Sweetwater had a 3-1 record in sub-varsity high school basketball action at Brownwood on Friday.
The JV and freshman boys each got their first victories in district play as they won by scores of 41-36 and 42-20, respectively. The JV girls are now 4-0 in district after their 52-42 victory, while the freshman girls lost their game 37-22.
Brandon Howell had 12 points, Trey Taylor 11 and Quentin Wetsel 10 to lead the JV boys, who are 1-2 in district and 14-8 overall. Deandre Gatson and Mike McCoy scored four points.
The Roscoe girls pulled away late for a 44-41 win over Stamford on Friday, but Roscoeâ€™s boys and both of Highlandâ€™s teams lost.
Roscoeâ€™s girls were led by Lynnsi Moses, who poured in a game-high 21 points to help her team improve to 2-3 in District 9-A, Division I games and 12-12 overall. Faith Boren had 12 points, Natalie Anthony and Mirian Solis three, Carolina Perez and Jacinda Morales two and Sara Kingston one.
