The Sweetwater softball team saw its record fall to 6-5 heading into a weekend tournament at Post after losing a 9-7 decision at Colorado City Tuesday.
Sweetwater had over twice as many hits (15) as Colorado City, but never led in the contest due in part to baserunning and fielding errors as well as pitching wildness, said coach Steve Roberts.
Kelsi Crosson led the offense by going 4-for-4 with a double while Alicia Finn had three hits and Suede Shirley (triple), Angela Garza and Kendra Crosson had two each.

Once again, Sweetwaterâ€™s Kris Mayes was his dominating self on the mound Tuesday against Midland Greenwood. And just for good measure, the Mustang pitcher brought a big bat to Newman Park as he led his team to a 3-0 victory.
Mayes (1-2) â€” who tossed an eight-inning one-hitter and struck out 16 in his most recent outing three days earlier at Sweetwaterâ€™s annual Wood Bat Classic, but took a hard-luck loss due to a couple of late errors â€” got the victory this time, though he was in a scoreless pitching duel for the first four innings. However, Mayes changed that with one swing of the bat.
The Sweetwater High School golf team shot a 668 total this past weekend at the Andrews Boys Classic to place seventh out of 20 teams.

Sweetwater High Schoolâ€™s track teams went to Snyder to compete at a season-opening meet on Friday.
The SHS girls scored 52 points for a fifth-place finish in their division and were led by senior Jayci Shelton, who won both hurdles and placed in two other events.
Itâ€™s not even mid-March, and Sweetwaterâ€™s baseball team has already equalled its win total for the entire 2010 season. The Mustangs can exceed it by defeating Midland Greenwood today at Newman Park starting at 6 p.m.
The Mustangs are off to an 8-2-1 start after going 8-21 a year ago, and five of this seasonâ€™s victories â€” including four this past weekend at Sweetwaterâ€™s annual Wood Bat Classic â€” have come in the friendly confines of Newman Park.
Sweetwater finished 4-1-1 at its three-day event that ended Saturday.
After an 11-1 loss at San Angelo Lake View on Saturday, the Sweetwater High School softball team will try to rebound today when it goes to Colorado City for a 6:30 p.m. contest.
A nine-run, second-inning uprising by Lake View turned Saturdayâ€™s game into a blowout as Sweetwater fell to 6-4. The Lady Mustangs managed to avoid a shutout by scoring in the fifth inning, but still lost by the 10-run rule. Kinsey Browning, Jackie Carey and Suede Shirley had hits and Taylor McKoy, Alicia Finn and Maty Montgomery pitched. Sweetwater committed four errors.
These three Roscoe athletes have qualified for the Class 1A regional powerlifting meet to be held Saturday at Sundown High School. Jose Rangel will compete in the 148-pound class, while Landon Jones will compete in the 181-pound class and Corey Hatcher in the 242-pound class.
Sweetwater High Schoolâ€™s Kelsey Painter and Bri Munoz will go to the state powerlifting meet in Corpus Christi later this month after qualifying at the regional meet that was held Saturday in Odessa.
Painter lifted a total of 675 pounds for a third-place finish in the 132-pound class. Munoz placed fourth in the 105-pound class, but also qualified for the state meet because her 550 total was the best of any Class 3A athlete in her weight class.
Three Sweetwater High School girls basketball players have earned recognition on the all-District 5-3A squad for their outstanding play this past season.
Alicia Finn, a 5-11 junior post who was the Lady Mustangsâ€™ leading scorer and rebounder in district play, earned first team honors while Taylor McKoy, a 5-8 senior post, was chosen to the second team.
Kinsey Browning, a 5-3 junior guard, received all-district honorable mention.
