April 22, 2014

 

A number of athletes from Roscoe, Blackwell and Highland have qualified to compete in the Region II-A, Division II track meet — to be held at Angelo State University this Friday and Saturday — as the result of top-four finishes last Friday at the 13A-14A area meet held in Highland.

SW, Snyder vie for 4-3A berth today in Snyder

April 22, 2014

Despite winning 68 per-cent of its games this sea-son, the Sweetwater base-ball team needs at least one more victory to assure itself of a trip to the playoffs.
A win at Snyder in today’s 7 p.m. regular season finale guarantees the Mustangs — 4-5 in District 4-3A, 17-8 overall — no worse than a third-place tie with Monahans, which like Snyder is also currently at 4-5. Monahans will host Greenwood (1-8) today.
Wylie (8-1) and Big Spring (6-3) are guaranteed playoff berths. Sweetwater, Snyder and Monahans are fighting for the other two spots.

One is enough for Wylie

April 21, 2014

ABILENE — Friday may be the last time that Sweet-water and Wylie are district rivals for a long time.
For Sweetwater, the score at Bulldog Field — a 1-0 victory for Wylie — means that its 2014 season may not last much longer. It sets up a huge game on Tuesday at Snyder — a game where a Sweetwater loss could end its playoff hopes. Sweetwa-ter, Snyder and Monahans now share third place in District 4-3A with 4-5 rec-ords as a result of Friday’s other developments in the district, but just two of them will play on after their sea-son finales on Tuesday.
