Sweetwater faces playoff-tested rival for berth in final 16

May 17, 2013

Sweetwater is one of 32 baseball teams who are still alive in the Class 3A high school playoffs. But in order to make it to the Sweet 16, it will have to knock off an Andrews squad that is in the playoffs for the 19th consecutive year.
That equals the number of years that Roland Herrera has been a head baseball coach, the last five of them at Sweetwater. But this is the first time in his tenure with the Mustangs to make it to the postseason.
Sweetwater (19-14) may be a “Cinderella” team, he admits, but they deserve to be here.

SW-Andrews III may not be able to match first two

May 16, 2013

The Sweetwater baseball team has played its share of exciting games this season. Four of the Mustangs’ five postseason games — and all four victories — have been decided by two runs or less.
Two of the most drama-tic finishes came in March against Andrews, which will play Sweetwater in a best-of-3 regional quarterfinal starting with Game 1 Friday at Lubbock Christian Uni-versity’s Hays Field. In both cases, the visiting team had a big early lead, only to see the home team rally and pull out a walk-off victory in the final inning.

Mustangs set new milestone with win

May 14, 2013

Sweetwater’s 8-6 victory over Pampa on Saturday at Lubbock Christian Univer-sity marked a new milestone for the baseball program, and matched another.
The win completed a two-game sweep for the Mustangs (19-14) in the teams’ best-of-3 area playoff, and advanced them to the regional quarterfinals for only the third time since the program was resumed back in 1988 following a 23-year absence.
This year’s team, however, is the first to ever win more than one playoff series.
