BIG SPRING â€” Sweetwa-ter saw its slim playoff hopes in volleyball disappear on Tuesday, as the Lady Mus-tangs lost to Big Spring in four games by scores of 21-25, 25-19, 11-25, 19-25.
Sweetwater (23-15 for the season) fell to 3-5 in district play while Big Spring (26-13 overall) is now 6-2 and tied with Monahans for second place with two games left. Wylie is first at 8-0 and has clinched at least a share of the District 4-3A championship after beating Midland Greenwood on Tuesday. Sweetwater will entertain Greenwood (1-7) on Friday and ends its season by hosting Wylie next Tuesday.

In a wild District 4-3A opener at Mustang Bowl that featured a pair of 2-3 teams with first-year head coaches, the winner of Fridayâ€™s Sweetwater vs. Snyder showdown wasnâ€™t decided until the final play.
Even though Sweetwater never trailed, the Mustangs couldnâ€™t relax until a Snyder fumble on that very last play sealed a 34-27 triumph.
And while the first feeling might have been one of relief, it was immediately followed by joy in the Bowl as Sweetwater won its 4-3A opener against a fierce rival â€” and one with three con-secutive lopsided victories over the Mustangs.
