Blackwell lost both ends of a District 14-A, Division II basketball doubleheader at Paint Rock on Tuesday.

After missing the first 11 games of the 2012-13 basketball season due to an injury he suffered at the end of football season, Sweetwaterâ€™s Kaleb Hoover showed little rust in his return Tuesday night against Colorado City.
In fact, last seasonâ€™s district Newcomer of the Year appears ready for the start of 4-3A action which is less than a month away. The 6-1 junior scored a team-high 19 points in leading the Mustangs to a 45-42 victory, completing a doubleheader sweep at Sweetwaterâ€™s gym.
Two Sweetwater High School football players â€” senior defensive lineman Tadeo Canon-Masjoan and senior linebacker Ryan Linebaugh â€” have received honorable mention to the Associated Press Sports Editors Class 3A all-state team released on Tuesday.
Both Canon-Masjoan and Linebaugh were named to the All-District 4-3A first team that was announced in early December.
Two Sweetwater High School sub-varsity basketball teams kept their unbeaten records intact this past weekend with road wins. Sweetwaterâ€™s JV girls are now 13-0 after winning 39-24 at Graham on Satur-day and the freshman boys are 5-0 after winning 37-28 at Bangs on Friday.
Going on the road for the final time before the holi-day break, the Sweetwater girls basketball team got 18 points from Kendra Crosson and led at the end of each quarter as it held off Gra-ham, 37-32, on Saturday.
Crosson got double-figure support from Suede Shirley, who had 11 points to help the Lady Mustangs improve their record to 11-7. The game, originally set for Friday, was moved because Grahamâ€™s football team played in the state semifinals, losing to Gilmer 50-7.
Kelsi Crosson had three points, Kathleen Campbell and Janell Walker two and Taylor McPherson one.

Roscoe landed four of its players on the all-District 7-A, Division II first team that was released this past week, while several other players also earned district recognition.
One of the districtâ€™s top honors went to Roscoe freshman Vincent Pantoja, who shared the districtâ€™s defensive newcomer of the year honor with Hamlinâ€™s Marcos Rojas.
Roscoeâ€™s four District 7-A, Division II first team selections were defensive lineman Landon Jones, cornerback Brant Burnett, utility player Chris Deleon and receiver Shelton Toliver. Deleon, Burnett and Jones are seniors while Toliver is a junior.
