GRAHAM â€” A big reason Sweetwater ended a 15-year softball playoff drought this year was its hitting.
But the Lady Mustangs met their match Saturday, as they were held to two hits by Iowa Park in a 9-0 win that ended their season.
LUBBOCK â€” Sweetwa-terâ€™s Nick Nemir was fourth in the boys 300-meter hur-dles Saturday after record-ing a time of 39.88 seconds at the Region I-3A track meet which was held at Texas Tech University.
Nemir, the only Sweet-water boys athlete to place, was 1.06 seconds behind second-place Blake Eschbach of Glen Rose. The top two in each event advance to the state track meet May 11-12 in Austin.
Nemir also went to regionals in the 30o hurdles last year but did not make the finals.
Ex-Sweetwater star Joe Banyard is now an undrafted free agent with the NFLâ€™s Jacksonville Jaguars after being offered a contract by the team Saturday.
Banyard, a running back at the University of Texas-El Paso the past two years, was picked up along with his UTEP teammate Antwon Blake. In addition, UTEPâ€™s Donovan Kemp was signed by the Dallas Cowboys and a fourth UTEP player, Matt Camilli, signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.
