SAN ANGELO â€” At least six local athletes will go to the UIL state meet at the University of Texas in less than two weeks.
At least two athletes will compete individually â€” Highlandâ€™s Beth Richburg in the girls 100 hurdles and 300 hurdles, and Matthew Lowry of Blackwell in the boys high jump. Lowry and Richburg will be joined by the Roscoe girlsâ€™ mile relay foursome of Whitney Wil-liams, Lyndi Wilkinson, Sunshine Talamantez and Eva Aguayo, which qualified with a second-place regional time of 4:18.85.
LUBBOCK â€” Sweetwater High Schoolâ€™s track season officially ended Saturday as none of its athletes at the Region I-3A meet at Texas Tech University advanced to state competition.
Competing individually for the Sweetwater boys was Johnathan Browning, who placed 13th in the long jump (19-1 1/2); and Deâ€™andre Gatson, who was 13th in the triple jump (40-4). Gatson and Browning also ran on the 400- and 800-meter relays, neither of which made it to Saturdayâ€™s finals.
BIG SPRING â€” When taking on Monahans, the Sweetwater High School baseball team has been a bit schizophrenic this season.
Theyâ€™ve been really good â€” except for the two times when they were, well, any-thing but that.
Sweetwater and Mona-hans met for the fourth time on Friday night in a District 4-3A third-place tiebreaker at Big Springâ€™s Steer Park. It was also their second meet-ing in 10 days, the first being a 15-1 Sweetwater victory in five innings on April 15.
