Sweetwater High Schoolâ€™s softball team, which ended non-district play by defeating Midland Christian 14-12 here Monday, will get its district season started with a game at Snyder â€” the defending champs â€” at 5 p.m. today.
The teams split their two games last year, with Sweet-water winning here 11-8 en route to a second-place finish and a second straight playoff berth while winning a bi-district championshp, the first since the school began playing softball.
The Sweetwater baseball teamâ€™s win streak has gone to the next level.
It reached double digits after a 9-5 win here Thurs-day over Lubbock Estacado for the Mustangs (13-3), who have now won 10 in a row since a 3-3 start.
Sweetwaterâ€™s 13 wins are already the second most in a season under sixth-year head coach Roland Herrera, and just six fewer than last yearâ€™s squad that advanced to the Region I-3A quarterfinals after finally ending a nine-year playoff drought.
Legendary former coach W.T. Stapler, who in 1985 led Sweetwater to the only state championship in the schoolâ€™s history, will be among the inductees into the Texas High School Hall of Fame in Waco on May 3.
Stapler was 51-16-2 in at Sweetwater from 1980-85, and in his final game the Mustangs, who were making only their second state finals appearance ever, beat defeated Tomball 17-7 to win the state title. The pre-vious year, Sweetwater won its first district champion-ship and earned its first playoff berth in 20 years.
