‘Stangs hold off Fabens for win in Game 1

May 6, 2013

CRANE — Despite some missed opportunities, the Sweetwater baseball team got its first playoff series in nine years off to a success-ful start Friday.
But the Mustangs’ 5-4 bi-district win over Fabens in Game 1 of their best-of-3 series was suspenseful right down to the end.
Sweetwater stranded 10 runners in the contest, nine of them in the last four in-nings, but still was able to rally from a brief 3-2 defi-cit — and guarantee itself two chances Saturday at Crane High School’s field to advance to the Class 3A area playoffs next week.

Lady ‘Stangs face tough Pampa squad

May 3, 2013

Being the coach of the first Sweetwater High School softball team to win a play-off game may make him the answer to a trivia question some day.
However, Tony Heredia is doing his best to put the Lady Mustangs’ 11-1 win over Pecos in the past and get his team ready to face a tough Pampa team in the Region I-3A area playoffs at 6 p.m. today at Lubbock’s Coronado High School.
“We really haven’t even talked about it,” he said. “We’re proud of the fact we won a bi-district championship, but now we’re ready for the next challenge.”

Mustangs to start p’season vs. Fabens

May 3, 2013

The first playoff trip for Sweetwater High School’s baseball squad since 2004 is lengthy as the team goes to Crane High School to play Fabens in a best-of-3 bi-district series. Game 1 starts at 5 p.m. today, with Game 2 at 2 p.m. Saturday. Game 3, if necessary, gets started 30 minutes after the end of the second game.
It was a long road just to get here. After narrowly missing the playoffs a year ago, Sweetwater (15-13) was the district co-champion this season in 4-3A, where a single game separated the district’s top four teams.

Lady Mustangs crush Pecos 11-1

April 29, 2013

WOLFFORTH — Sweet-water’s 2013 softball team just keeps rewriting history.
The Lady Mustangs (21-13) — who were already the first softball team in the 17-year history of Sweet-water’s program to record 20 wins — added another historical footnote Saturday when they routed Pecos, 11-1, in five innings for their first playoff win ever.
“We wanted it pretty bad,” said senior pitcher Maty Montgomery, who allowed just four hits and struck out three to get the victory. “It feels good.”
