After taking a week off, Sweetwaterâ€™s golf teams get back into action Friday with the boys going to Abilene Wylieâ€™s one-day tournament and the girls hosting a tournament at Sweetwater Country Club that wraps up Saturday.
The girls tournament will begin Friday with tee times at 9 a.m. Sweetwater is ex-pected to have 18 players participating â€” three five-player teams in addition to three medalists. The top three teams and medalists will receive awards follow-ing Saturdayâ€™s conclusion of the 36-hole event.
Baird, Abilene High, Abilene Cooper, Wylie, Lev-elland, Lamesa, Clyde, Jim Ned and Big Spring are also expected to send teams.
Saturdayâ€™s golf action will begin at Sweetwater Country Club with a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m. Sweetwaterâ€™s teams last played Feb. 10 at Big Springâ€™s tournament that was shortened to one day due to bad weather.
Sweetwaterâ€™s boys shot 312 and tied with Wylie for first place only to claim the title after winning a scorecard tiebreaker, while the Sweetwater girls were a close fourth in their tourna-ment. The Lady Mustangs shot 379 and trailed Snyder, the winner, by just 13 shots. Sweetwater was also just five shots behind Wylie, which placed second.
