Senior League stars lose, 15-4

July 15, 2011

GARLAND - Sweetwater’s Senior League (ages 15-16) all-stars had more runs, hits and baserunners on Thursday than they did in their opening win the previous day at the Texas West Section 2 tournament.
Unfortunately, there was little clutch hitting, and not nearly enough outstanding pitching and defense this time around as Waco Southern handed Sweetwater its first loss, 15-4, at the South Garland Little League complex.

FW University blanks 10-11 year-olds

WACO - After scoring 14 runs against Wichita Falls in Wednesday’s opener, Sweetwater’s 10-11 year-old all-stars ran into a buzzsaw Thursday at the Texas West Section 2 Little League tournament as they fell to Fort Worth University, 10-0, in four innings.
Sweetwater, which failed to get a hit and had just one baserunner in the contest, must bounce back today in order to keep its sectional title hopes alive and stay in the tournament.

SW team going to sectional

July 6, 2011

Sweetwater’s 11-4 victory over Wylie on Tuesday in the second — and final — 10-11 year-old District 5 Little League All-Star championship game at Sweetwater’s Major League Field represented a true “team” effort.

Sweetwater rallies to beat Wylie, force 2nd championship game

July 5, 2011

After suffering their first loss on Friday, Sweetwater’s 10-11 year-old Little League all-stars have rediscovered the magic that has them one win away from going to a sectional tournament for the second straight year.
Sweetwater, which fell to the losers bracket after an 8-6 defeat Friday against Wylie in the semifinals, got some sweet revenge with a 7-5 victory when the teams met again on Monday in the championship game at Sweetwater’s Major League field. Since both teams now have one loss, they will meet again at 7 p.m. today to decide the District 5 title at the same location.
