Sweetwater will be repre-sented by Alex Castillo at the Region 1-3A boys golf tournament next week.
But Castilloâ€™s teammates wonâ€™t be joining him at San Angeloâ€™s Bentwood Country Club. While Castillo shot 73-229 to place fourth among district medalists, the teamâ€™s fourth-place finish after a 314-958 wasnâ€™t good enough in Tuesdayâ€™s final round â€” which was held at Abileneâ€™s Maxwell Municipal Golf Course â€” to advance the Mustangs to the regional tourney.
Tuesdayâ€™s 9-7 Snyder win over Wylie ended a 16-year playoff drought for Sweet-waterâ€™s softball team dating all the way back to the pro-gramâ€™s very first year.
Here are Highlandâ€™s JV boys results from last weekâ€™s season-ending district track meet held in Blackwell.
The JV boys scored 41 points to place fourth in the division.
200 â€” Kaden Nachlinger 3rd (27.24); Laramie Thompson 6th (29.43)
400 relay â€” 3rd (54.62 â€” Zack Cornett, Kaden Nachlinger, Kevin Pantoja, Laramie Thompson)

Long jump â€” Laramie Thomp-son 6th (13-3 3/4)
Shot put â€” Zack Cornett 4th (31-2); Kevin Pantoja 6th (25-3 1/2)

BROWNWOOD â€” The Sweetwater High School girls golf team held on to second place Monday in the final round of the District 5-3A tournament at Brownwood Country Club.
As a result, the team will advance to the Region I-3A tournament on April 18-19 in San Angelo.
Sweetwater carded a 374 over the last 18 holes to end with a 54-hole total of 1,106 strokes and finish behind only Snyder, which shot 339 and wound up at 1,038. The top two teams and top two individuals not from a qualifying team advance to the regional tournament.
Track athletes from Ros-coe, Blackwell and High-land recently had top-four finishes in district events to qualify for area track meets scheduled this Thursday.
Roscoeâ€™s athletes went to Albany for District 9-1A competition. Boys qualifiers were Jesus Leanos, who was first in both the 1600 run (5:04.64) and the 3200 (10:54.94); Dillon Freeman, first in the 300 hurdles (43.81); Devon Freeman, second in the pole vault (12-6); and Eduardo Galle-gos, fourth in the 400 dash (52.66).

Another very busy week of district competition for Nolan County high school athletes resumes Monday, when the Sweetwater girls golf team plays the final leg of its 5-3A tournament at Brownwood. Blackwellâ€™s golf teams also wrap up their tournament Monday as they play in Baird.
The Sweetwater boys golf team goes to Wylie to play the third and final leg of its 5-3A tournament Tuesday. Both Sweetwater teams are in second place and need a top-two finish to advance to regional tournaments.
ABILENE â€” After scor-ing a season-high 15 runs in a key win at Big Spring three days earlier, Sweet-water again brought out the big lumber on Friday when it traveled to Wylie for the last of four straight road games in District 5-3A softball play.
And after a 10-6 win, the Lady Mustangs are on the verge of making history as just the second team to advance to postseason play since Sweetwater began playing UIL softball.
ABILENE â€” For four in-nings of Fridayâ€™s rematch, a Sweetwater team that had lost 16-1 at home to Wylie in its District 5-3A opener stood toe-to-toe with the first-place Bulldogs.
The Mustangs even held a brief 4-1 lead after pushing across three runs in their half of the fourth inning before Wylie tied it by scor-ing three runs as well.
Unfortunately, the scor-ing pretty much ended there for Sweetwater, while Wylie was just getting started. The Bulldogs took their first lead, 8-4, with a four-run fifth and went on to a 10-5 win over the Mustangs.
