Blackwell and Highland will have homefield advantage, while Roscoe is on the road as the three area teams try again for their first win of the 2011 football season.

September 8th

Similar name, new foe for SW

September 8, 2011

After giving a good Mon-ahans team fits at Mustang Bowl this past weekend and battling the state-ranked Loboes on even terms for three quarters before losing, Sweetwater plays a different set of Lobos this Friday.
And the spelling of their nicknames — Levelland’s Lobos, unlike Monahans, don’t include an ‘e’ in theirs — are only one of the differences between the two former Class 4A and now Class 3A schools.

SHS whips Lamesa in 3

September 7, 2011

The Sweetwater High School volleyball team has been pretty good at winning on the road this season. It’s a good thing, because prior to Tuesday, the Lady Mustangs hadn’t played in their gym since their season opener on Aug. 9.
As a result the team, according to coach Liz Miller, had a small case of nerves going into its match with Lamesa and she wasn’t sure what to expect.
But the result was just fine as Sweetwater (13-11) had a straight-set victory, winning by scores of 25-15, 25-18, 25-19 at Mustang Gym to stay above .500 this season.
