A baseball team made up of 15- and 16-year-olds will be representing Sweetwater at a Texas West Section II Senior League tournament.
The 2011 tournament is set for July 13-16 in Garland and will include teams who represent four sections of the state. Sweetwater, which represents District 5, will be joined by teams from Dis-trict 7 (Fort Worth area), District 8 (Dallas area) and District 9 (Waco area).
The tournament will be hosted by South Garland Little League. Sweetwater will play its first game at 6 p.m. July 13 against the District 8 representative.
Although there are no Senior League teams playing in this yearâ€™s District 5 all-star tournaments that are currently underway, Sweetwater has qualified to participate in the sectional tournament, which has a double-elimination format.
Sweetwaterâ€™s players for the sectional tourney will be Stephen May, James Clift, Mike McCoy, Dylan Bennett, Cole Maxwell, Quentin Wet-sel, Ryan Linebaugh, Shawn Campbell, Sean Morrow, Greg Aiken, Kaleb Hoover, Brandon Howell and Willie Norman.
