Lady Stangs win; Stangs fall

April 20, 2011

Despite sweeping Snyder in District 5-3A play this season, while also finishing in a tie with Big Spring for third place in district after a 6-2, nine-inning victory on Tuesday at Snyder in its season finale, Sweetwater’s softball team will not get a chance at the playoffs. Big Spring and Sweetwater both finished with 3-5 records, but Sweetwater lost both district games to Big Spring this season.
Tuesday’s win was still a nice way to finish, and Sweetwater’s District 5-3A fate wasn’t sealed until Wylie (2-6) lost its finale to district champion Brown-wood 19-7 on Tuesday.
