Sweetwaterâ€™s 8-6 win over Wylie on Tuesday has dramatically changed the teamâ€™s outlook through the first two games of the 2012 District 5-3A softball season. And the Lady Mustangsâ€™ victory could not have been more dramatic.
Sweetwater ran into a high-scoring Wylie team when the teams met in their District 5-3A base-ball opener here Tues-day, and the Mustangs were soon in a hole from which they never recovered. The Bulldogs needed just five innings to decide the issue at Newman Park as they came away with a domi-nating 16-1 win that was ended by the 10-run mercy rule. Sweetwater fell to 6-7-1 overall, while Wylie improved its season mark to 9-3.
Sweetwater High Schoolâ€™s softball and baseball teams hope to get back on the win-ning track today when they play District 5-3A games at home today against Wylie.
The SHS softball team, which is 10-6 overall but 0-1 in District 5-3A after losing to Big Spring on Friday, will face Wylie at 6:30 p.m. after a JV game at 5. The baseball team â€” which begins district play at 7 p.m. â€” has lost its last two games and seen its season record drop to 6-6-1.
All four of Sweetwater High Schoolâ€™s athletes placed at the girls state powerlifting meet that was held on Saturday in Corpus Christi.
