SHS teams finish up homestands with crucial games against Wylie

April 8, 2011

Today’s contests against Wylie will be the last of four straight home games for Sweetwater High School’s baseball and softball teams against district opponents. Furthermore, they will be the last home games of the 2011 season for both teams.
And for the two squads, a victory today is crucial to remain viable contenders in District 5-3A, though the 2-3 Lady Mustang softball team — which will host Wylie at 5 p.m. — has more wiggle room than the 1-3 baseball team, which entertains Wylie at 7 p.m.

Mustangs get 1st district win

April 6, 2011

Though it is still strug-gling to score runs, Sweet-water’s baseball team final-ly has its first district win — thanks to the performance of its most reliable starting pitcher here Tuesday.
Senior Kris Mayes, in fact, hurled the second no-hitter of his high school career in a 3-2 win over Big Spring as the Mustangs (1-3) pulled out of a last-place tie with the Steers and kept their playoff hopes alive.

Lady Stangs fall

April 6, 2011

Because of failed scoring opportunities here Tuesday, Sweetwater’s softball team let a chance to be the undisputed second-place team in District 5-3A slip away as it lost to Big Spring, 5-1.
Sweetwater had eight hits, but produced just one run as the Lady Mustangs fell to 2-3 in district. Sweetwater is now in a three-way tie for second place with Snyder and Big Spring, with Wylie — which comes here Friday — just a half-game behind all three teams at 1-3.
