SHS whips Lamesa in 3

September 7, 2011

The Sweetwater High School volleyball team has been pretty good at winning on the road this season. It’s a good thing, because prior to Tuesday, the Lady Mustangs hadn’t played in their gym since their season opener on Aug. 9.
As a result the team, according to coach Liz Miller, had a small case of nerves going into its match with Lamesa and she wasn’t sure what to expect.
But the result was just fine as Sweetwater (13-11) had a straight-set victory, winning by scores of 25-15, 25-18, 25-19 at Mustang Gym to stay above .500 this season.
