The 2014 baseball season has been an interesting one for Sweetwater.
In terms of overall wins and winning percentage, Sweetwater (18-9) has had its best season since Roland Herrera became head coach in 2009.
Yet it has been a struggle of late, with six losses in the teamâ€™s last nine games as the Mustangs, who made the playoffs for the second straight year, were only the No. 4 seed in District 4-3A.
But Herrera said thatâ€™s all in the past as Sweetwater begins a best-of-3 bi-district series with Pecos (18-8) at 7 p.m. today in Denver City.
The short wait was worth it for all of the Nolan County track athletes who placed third in their events this weekend in San Angelo at the Region II-1A, Division II meet. Theyâ€™re going to state as â€świld cardâ€ť qualifiers at the Class 1A, D-II meet on May 9-10.
The UIL rule qualified three more athletes and relays â€” and nine more athletes, making 15 from Nolan County â€” to compete in less than two weeks at the University of Texasâ€™ Mike A. Myers Stadium in Austin.
The Sweetwater and Pecos baseball teams have agreed to meet this weekend in a best-of-3 bi-district playoff series after completing their regular seasons on Friday. The playoff will be in Denver City.
Game 1 is at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 2. Game 2 begins the following day at 11 a.m. with a third game, if necessary, scheduled to begin about 30 minutes after the end of Game 3.
