Realignment may not offer much help

February 3, 2012

The University Interscho-lastic League realignment finally arrived on Thursday and as usual, there were some surprises — both good and bad — for our county’s four high schools.
Given Sweetwater’s lack of athletic success recently, the general hope was that the UIL would put the Mustangs and Lady Mustangs in a more favor-able district than the current one (5-3A) with Wylie, Brownwood, Big Spring and Snyder, all with much higher enrollments and with the exception of Big Spring, a big winning tradition.

SW teams get bum Steer

February 1, 2012

BIG SPRING — Desper-ately needing a win to have any realistic hopes of getting to the playoffs, visiting Sweetwater was down by just four points (26-22) against Big Spring after starting out the third quarter of Tuesday’s District 5-3A game with a 5-0 run.
But Big Spring answered that surge, which included a 3-pointer by Kendra Cros-son followed by Crosson’s steal and layup, with a resounding run of its own. The Lady Steers (3-3) scored the next 23 points to put the game out of reach and claim a 53-31 victory.

Boys can’t sustain early momentum

February 1, 2012

BIG SPRING — There were a lot of positive signs for Sweetwater on Tuesday, even though the Mustangs fell to Big Spring 48-37 and saw their playoff chances take a major hit.
The Mustangs held an opponent to under 50 points for the second consecutive game, while allowing just three in the opening quarter. And while the Mustangs struggled again offensively, they trailed by just two, 19-17, at halftime and later cut a 16-point deficit at the start of the fourth quarter to just nine (45-36) with 2:47 left in the game.

Two area girls teams get wins

February 1, 2012

The Highland girls basketball team, already assured of the playoffs, kept up its winning ways on Tuesday while Roscoe’s girls also got a big victory to keep their postseason chances alive.
Nine players scored as Highland routed Trent, 61-26, to improve to 21-7 overall and 9-2 in District 11-A, Division II.
Kara Hughey scored 12 points and Beth Richburg 11 for the Lady Hornets, while Sierra Allen scored nine points, Lora Stewart eight, Madison Moseley, Morgan Monroe and Jes-sica McCain five, Megan Thompson four and Kay-lee Martin two.

SHS teams try to build on success

January 31, 2012

This past week was by far the best one for both of Sweetwater High School’s varsity basketball teams since district play began.
The teams each got their initial 5-3A win by defeating Snyder on Tuesday, then got the district’s bye Friday.
Another victory today at Big Spring would not only continue the recent success but also vault the Mustangs (1-3) and Lady Mustangs (1-4) into a third-place tie with Big Spring (whose teams are 2-2 and 2-3). The girls and boys tip off at 6 and 7:30 p.m., respective-ly, with JV and freshman games also on tap.
