After near-miss, Lady Mustangs may end playoff drought

February 13, 2012

It took a tiebreaker this past season to keep Sweet-water’s softball team from getting a shot at the pro-gram’s first playoff berth since the 1990s.
However, that hurdle may be cleared in 2012 with 11 returning lettermen — five of whom won all-district recognition — on this season’s 13-player roster. Still, the team will be young with only three seniors, along with eight juniors and two freshmen.
First-year coach Robert Williams is excited about that potential as the Lady Mustangs prepare for their season opener at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday against Winters.
