Munoz places 8th at state

March 22, 2011

CORPUS CHRISTI — Sweetwater High School senior Bri Munoz placed eighth at the Class 3A state powerlifting meet Friday.
Munoz, competing in the 105-pound weight class, lifted a total of 570 pounds and had personal bests in all three categories in her first trip to the state meet. She had a 210-pound squat, 110-pound bench press and 250-pound dead lift.
Sweetwater’s other state competitor was also a sen-ior, Kelsey Painter, who was in the 132-pound weight class. Painter did not place, however, after she was disqualified in the squat. This was also the first state ap-pearance for Painter.

Loboettes defeat S’water

March 18, 2011

In its final game before today’s District 5-3A opener at Big Spring, Sweetwater’s softball team showed some resiliency here on Thursday by coming all the way back from a five-run deficit to tie Levelland, 5-5, at the Jerry Collins Complex.
But the Loboettes then put together the winning rally with three runs in their half of the sixth inning to break the deadlock and held on for an 8-5 victory over the Lady Mustangs.

March 17, 2011

Sweetwater High School’s softball team tries for its second straight win when it hosts Levelland at 3 p.m. today after a 16-8 victory at Lamesa on Monday that improved the team to 8-7 this season. Sweetwater begins district play Friday when it goes to Big Spring for a 7 p.m. contest.
Seven players had multiple-hit games Monday at Lamesa. Keyli Turner had five hits and Kendra Crosson and Alicia Finn four each, while Suede Shirley, Taylor McKoy and Kinsey Browning had three hits and Kelsi Crosson two for the Lady Mustangs.

Circling the bases

March 17, 2011

Sweetwater’s Alicia Finn smiles as she runs as she circles the bases following a home run that she hit at the Lady Mustangs’ tournament in February. Finn was one of several Sweetwater players who had big offensive games in a 16-8 win at Lamesa on Monday. The team begins district play on Friday when the Lady Mustangs travel to Big Spring for a 7 p.m. game.

Mustangs fall to Steers, 9-5

March 16, 2011

Sweetwater’s offense had 14 hits against Graham and the pitchers came up with 11 strikeouts in Tuesday’s non-district game at Newman Park, while giving up just five hits. Still, the Steers were able to overcome their lack of production by taking advantage of Sweetwater mistakes as they won, 9-5, with the help of nine walks, two hit batters, four errors and a few timely hits.

Shelton breaks coach’s record at Odessa meet

March 16, 2011

Jayci Shelton did more than just set a meet record with her time of 45.56 seconds in the 300-meter hurdles Friday at the West Texas Relays in Odessa.
The SHS senior’s winning time eclipsed the old record of 46.54 set in 2004 by her coach. Jessica Withrow was a high school star at Muleshoe when she set the previous Division II meet mark for the 300-meter hurdles, a mark broken Friday by Shelton. Losing the record, Withrow said, was “kind of bittersweet.”
