Mustangs to continue homestand today after four wins at Classic

March 8, 2011

It’s not even mid-March, and Sweetwater’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 season’s victories — including four this past weekend at Sweetwater’s annual Wood Bat Classic — have come in the friendly confines of Newman Park.
Sweetwater finished 4-1-1 at its three-day event that ended Saturday.

Lady Stangs beaten at LV, play at C-City

March 8, 2011

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 Saturday’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.

SW Wood Bat hurlers show their stuff

March 5, 2011

The Sweetwater High School varsity baseball team had a 2-0-1 record through Friday at the 2011 Wood Bat Classic tournament held at Newman Park, and pitching was a big reason why. Shown is freshman Kaleb Hoover, who on Thursday threw a five-inning no-hitter in a 7-0 win over Post. The Mustangs also tied Ozona 5-5 on Friday before the game was called due to the tournament time limit. Sweetwater was 6-1-1 going into Saturday’s final day of the event when the team was scheduled to play games against Post, Slaton and Clyde.

Mustangs off to great start

March 4, 2011

Most people who follow baseball would agree that an inside-the-park home run and a no-hitter are two of the most exciting things in the sport.
Sweetwater fans got to see their team pull off both feats against Post in Thursday’s opening day of the Wood Bat Classic.
Cameron Fox’s inside-the-park homer capped a three-run outburst in the first inning off Post’s Chess Postell. And that was more than enough cushion for Sweetwater’s freshman hurler Kaleb Hoover, who pitched a no-hitter in his five-inning stint and struck out six in a 7-0 win.
