Mustangs unleash offensive thunder, pick up 1st 5-3A win

March 29, 2012

BROWNWOOD — After hitting its low point of the season in a district-opening 16-1 home loss to Wylie on March 20, the Sweetwater baseball team is suddenly hitting its stride — and the Mustangs are hitting the ball pretty darn well, too.
Wednesday’s convincing 14-8 victory at Brownwood certainly drove home the last point. Sweetwater belted 15 hits off three pitchers while handing the three-time defending district champion Lions their first defeat in 5-3A play. The win leaves both squads at 1-1 in district and tied for second place behind Wylie (3-0), a 9-7 winner over Big Spring on Wednesday.

Lady Stangs can’t maintain fast start

March 29, 2012

BROWNWOOD — After getting eight days off following its come-from-behind 8-6 win over Wylie here on March 20, Sweetwater’s softball team came out blazing with three early runs at Brownwood and a 3-0 lead after 1 1/2 innings Wednesday. A double by Claire Williams began the rally, and Kendra Crosson was hit by a pitch before Kelsi Crosson doubled both of them home. After a strikeout, Maty Montgomery then reached on an error to score courtesy runner Angela Garza and give Sweetwater a 3-0 advantage over the Lady Lions and their ace pitcher, Sydney Laws.
