ABILENE â€” John Paul Cain of Sweetwater, who first made a name for himself as a college golfer at Texas Tech University and later as an amateur golfer and two-time winner on the Senior PGA Tour, will be among nine new inductees into the Big Country Athletic Hall of Fame this year, it was announced Wednesday.

The Highland girls basketball team held on to second place in District 11-A, Division II with a 71-43 victory over Ira on Tuesday.
Highland improved to 19-7 overall and is 7-2 in district play with three games left. The Lady Hornets, trying for an 11th straight trip to the state playoffs, maintained a half-game lead over third-place Loraine and trail only first-place Roby (9-0) in district. Highland plays at Loraine (6-2) on Friday.
Sierra Allen scored 25 points to pace the win over Ira and Beth Richburg had 17 points.
Though it had been an eternity â€” almost two years â€” since winning a district game, it didnâ€™t take Sweet-water long to seize control of Tuesdayâ€™s 5-3A contest at Mustang Gym with Snyder.
After falling behind 3-2 less than two minutes into the contest, the Mustangs promptly went on a 7-0 run to take a 9-3 lead midway through the first quarter. Sweetwater never gave up the lead after that.
And with sophomore post Kaleb Hoover scoring 19 of his 25 points in the second half, the Mustangs (1-3, 10-17) gradually pulled away to claim a 54-41 win.
The Sweetwater girls bas-ketball team struggled early against Snyder in the teamsâ€™ District 5-3A game Tuesday at Mustangs, then lost two key starters to fouls in the fourth quarter after building a 12-point lead.
But the Lady Mustangs persevered to get their first win in district play, 49-43, over the Lady Tigers.
Sweetwater (1-4, 15-15) found itself trailing 11-2 and 13-4 in the first quarter un-til finally getting untracked.
Kendra Crossonâ€™s basket gave the Lady Mustangs their first lead, 18-17, with 3:19 left before halftime.
The Sweetwater junior varsity and freshman boys basketball teams both came away with wins over Snyder here Tuesday in sub-varsity district contests.
The JV boys won 46-42 as they got 15 points from Trey Taylor and overcame a two-point deficit by outscoring Snyder 14-8 in the fourth quarter to improve to 2-2 in district and 15-8 overall. Brandon Howell and Quentin Wetsel had eight points, Mike McCoy six, Marquees Jenkins five and Deandre Gatson four for the Mustangs.
Sweetwater led 12-11 after one quarter, but trailed 25-23 at halftime and 34-32 after three quarters.
