SWEETWATER â€“ The Texas AgriLife Extension Service office in Nolan County will conduct a four-part series of small-acreage landowner workshops. Â
The second will be from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 26, in the Extension Meeting Room on the third floor of the Nolan County Courthouse in Sweetwater.
Other sessions are scheduled for Tuesday, May 10, and Tuesday, May 24, said Zachary Wilcox, AgriLife Extension agent in Nolan County.
Kendal Carrillo, a former Sweetwater High School player, is still undefeated as a pitcher for the University of Texas baseball team after a win over Texas-Pan American Tuesday. Carrillo, a senior at UT, pitched a perfect eighth inning to get credit for the victory as the No. 7 Longhorns won 4-2. Carrillo, who is 3-0, has appeared in 20 games to share the team lead with a 1.25 ERA as a middle reliever, and batters are hitting just .195 against him this season.
Sweetwaterâ€™s JV baseball team defeated Big Springâ€™s JV, 10-6, in its final game Friday at Sportsmanâ€™s Park.
A triple by Anthony Pala-cios that drove in three runs was the big hit in a six-run first inning as Sweetwater never trailed in the contest.
The Mustangs also scored a run in the second inning and came up with its final three runs in the fourth to finish 4-4 in district play.
Five players finished with two hits â€” Palacios, Stephen May, Cole Maxwell, Brandon Howell and Joe Martinez. Howell was the winning pitcher.

Karry Owens, who earlier this year submitted his resignation as head football coach at Highland after 18 years, has accepted a similar job at Water Valley. His last day at Highland was on Friday.
Owens will be repla-cing Justin Esquell, who resigned after leading Water Valley to a 10-1 record this past season.
Owensâ€™ replacement will be Jeff Shelton, who served as the head football coach at New Home the last two years. The Leopards were 5-5 in 2010. Shelton was also defensive coordinator for four years at Jayton, where he helped them reach the six-man state finals in 2006.

Four entered pleas to Judge Glen Harrison during 32nd Judicial District Court this week.
Most former high school football players think they will never play again. However, Texas Alumni Football is changing that, with not one but two alumni football games on Saturday at Mustang Bowl.
It will be Roby vs. Roscoe in the opener of the doubleheader at 4 p.m. That game is followed by Sweetwater vs. Snyder in the nightcap starting at 7:30 p.m.
Texas Alumni Football is also responsible for two other Abilene-area games on Saturday. Aspermont plays Hermleigh on Aspermont's field at 2 p.m., and Stamford squares off with Haskell at Stamford's Bulldog Stadium at 7:30 p.m.
On Thursday, April 28, 2010, the Sweetwater Fire Department and the Sweetwater Police Department will be "fighting" it out for a good cause. They will be having the third Guns and Hoses Basketball Game, benefiting the West Texas Children's Advocacy Center. The game will be at the Sweetwater High School Gym at 7 p.m. and the teams will compete to see who wins this year's game. Last year's winners were the police officers and the first year's winners were the firemen. According to Sweetwater Police Officer Lance Richburg, they are hoping that many will come out to support the cause once again.
