SW runs into Wall

November 30, 2011

State-ranked Wall used a relentless outside shooting attack here Tuesday to slowly wear down Sweetwater in the teams’ non-district boys basketball contest.
The Hawks hit seven treys to none for the Mustangs, and a 24-5 run in the middle two periods led to their decisive 68-44 win.
Wall and Sweetwater held all three boys games at the middle school gym due to water-related problems at the high school that forced school officials to cancel classes on Tuesday.
