Mustangs end playoff drought, grab outright lead with 10-5 win

April 17, 2013

MONAHANS — For the first time since 2004, Sweetwater’s baseball team is in the Class 3A playoffs.
But wait, there’s more.
After Tuesday’s 10-5 win at Monahans — coupled with Snyder’s 7-4 victory over Wylie — the Mustangs find themselves all alone atop District 4-3A.
But it took a late rally for Sweetwater (7-1) to defeat Monahans, which had taken a 5-4 lead in the bottom of the sixth and was just three outs from an upset victory.

Lady Mustangs rally, but lose on walk-off hit in the 7th

April 17, 2013

MONAHANS — Sweet-water’s softball team came into Monahans on Friday having clinched a playoff berth, but still with a chance to claim at least a share of the District 4-3A title.
And after rallying from an early four-run deficit to tie the game at 4-4, the Lady Mustangs’ dream was still alive. But missed opportunities to take the lead led to a disappointing finish, as Monahans scored the winning run in the seventh inning on a walk-off single to claim a 5-4 victory.
