SHS girls finish 3rd at 4-3A tournament

April 8, 2014

Sweetwater High School’s girls golf team shot a final round 382 Monday at Sny-der’s Western Texas College for a third-place finish at the 54-hole, three-leg District 4-3A golf tournament.
Despite missing a regional berth, Sweetwater beat out five of the district’s eight competing golf teams with a three-round 1,104 total. The two teams who are advancing to regionals are Snyder (1,001) and Monahans (1,012). Sweetwater’s No. 2 team shot 443-1,264 for a seventh-place finish.
The regional tournament will be played April 16-17 at Lubbock.

Hunt 6th after 2nd round

April 7, 2014

Michael Hunt of Sweet-water shot another 77 Sat-urday in the second round of the District 4-3A boys golf tournament for a 154 total, leaving him in sixth place among medalists en-tering the final round Tues-day when the tournament moves to Sweetwater.
If he maintains his position, Hunt will qualify for regional competition next week with the second-best score — trailing only Jacob Lair (150) of Monahans — among all players not on one of the top two teams.
Big Spring (608) and Abi-lene Wylie (625) currently rank 1-2, with Sweetwater in fifth place at 670.

Tigers rally late to beat S’water 7-4

April 7, 2014

Two weeks ago, life was sweet for the Sweetwater baseball team.
The Mustangs were 15-3 overall, had a 12-game win-ning streak and were 2-0 in district play.
But since that time, not much has gone Sweetwater’s way.
The team lost its third straight Friday, falling 7-4 to Snyder at Sportsman’s Park in a game that saw the Tigers push across five runs in the final two innings — largely due to miscues com-mitted by the Mustangs — in rallying back from a 3-2 deficit.

Lady ‘Stangs avoid no-hit but lose 12-0

April 7, 2014

The Sweetwater softball team can be thankful that it probably won’t ever have to face Snyder’s Adrianna Hernandez again.
The Lady Tigers’ talented senior on Friday shut out the Lady Mustangs for the third straight time, and got plenty of offensive support as her team rolled to a 12-0, five-inning win.
Snyder improved to 6-0 in district with the win, while Sweetwater fell to 0-6. But the Lady Mustangs (9-12 overall) were at least able to avoid being no-hit by Hernandez a second time when Cierra Knox hit a two-out single past third base in the fourth inning.
