Roscoeâs football team currently sits atop the District 7-1A, Division II standings after a 47-6 win over Baird in its opener last week at Roscoe.
But for the Plowboys to improve their record to 2-0, they must find a way to beat a Cross Plains team tonight on its home turf.
And while Roscoe is 2-2 this season â matching its total wins for the past two seasons â the team is 0-2 on the road so far.
Here are recent results for the Sweetwater Middle School eighth grade White volleyball team:
Vs. Big Spring
Sweetwater âCâ lost 12-25, 4-11. Leading servers and points: Kalei Hayes 2, Addy Jones 2.
Sweetwater âBâ lost 14-25, 23-25. Leading servers and points: Xaveria Clark 5, Caprice Cepeda 3, Avery Garcia 3.
Big Spring âBâ tournament
Sweetwater lost to Monahans 22-25. 22-25. Leading servers and points: Caprice Cepeda 9, Dharma Hernandez 6, Ainsleigh Nelson 5, Alex Perez 3.
Five of District 4-3Aâs six football teams have finished the non-district portion of their schedules and are idle this week, with Monahans â which takes on Canyon â the lone exception.
The second, and by far most important, half of the season gets started when the teams begin district ac-tion next week.
So now â while the teams (except for Monahans) get a breather âseems as good a time as any to take a look at the teams (including Sweetwater), how they have fared so far and what their chances are in one of the stateâs best 3A districts.
Head coach: Hugh San-difer
Itâs taken awhile, but all three Nolan County football teams outside of Sweetwa-ter are hitting their stride.
The good news for Roscoe is twofold: not only are the Plowboys off to a 2-2 start after winning a total of two games the past two seasons, but â and much more im-portantly â they are 1-0 in District 7-1A, Division II after a 47-6 win over Baird this past Friday.
Roscoe will now travel to Cross Plains â also 1-0 in district â on Friday as the Plowboys try to build on last weekâs success.
The Mustang Baseball Classic golf tournament will be held on Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Sweetwater Country Club with a 9 a.m. shotgun start. This event is a four-person scramble, and all proceeds from this yearâs tournament will go to support the Sweetwater High School baseball program by enabling the purchase of additional equipment.
