Sweetwater (2-1) travels to Wall (2-1) for its third Class 3A vs. 2A matchup of the young season.
The West Texas Heat, a 16-under softball team made up of players from Sweetwater and the surrounding area, recently captured the championship of the Labor Day Shootout tournament in Keller. The Heat had a 6-0 record in outscoring opponents 62-3 at the event.
Sweetwaterâ€™s two wins in the 2012 season have both come against Class 2A com-petition. But the Mustangsâ€™ third and final 2A opponent may be their toughest.
For starters, Wall has lost only four of 29 games since the start of the 2010 season under coach Houston Guy and was ranked No. 7 in the state just two weeks ago until losing to Merkel.
However, the Hawks (2-1) rebounded in a big way this past week when they traveled to Sonora, another West Texas Class 2A power, and easily won 47-13.
