With the high school basketball season over, other sports involving Sweetwa-ter High School start getting their turn in the spotlight today with a powerlifting meet and JV tennis tournament on tap locally, and the Lady Mustang softball team traveling to Colorado City for its season opener.
ROBERT LEE â€” It does-nâ€™t get much more exciting than the way Roscoeâ€™s girls basketball team began its playoff run on Wednesday.
Facing Paint Rock in a bi-district showdown, the Plowgirls â€” who trailed for most of the game â€” were tied at 31 when Eva Aguayo rolled in a game-winning jumper just before the buz-zer sounded for a thrilling 33-31 victory.
The Plowgirls now make the trip to Clyde for an area playoff vs. Zephyr on Friday at 7:30 p.m. It will be the second game of a playoff doubleheader in Clyde that also involves Highland, which will face Santa Anna at 6 p.m.
Tuesdayâ€™s Class 1A, Divi-sion II bi-district girls play-off game between Roscoe and Paint Rock was resche-duled for today due to the bad weather that has affected many teams lately.
Roscoe (15-13) and Paint Rock (17-8) are now sched-uled to meet at 7:30 p.m. today in Robert Lee.
On the boys side, a seas-on-ending game between Highland and Ira has been rescheduled for today in Ira with the JV boys playing at 4 p.m. and the varsity game immediately after.
GREENWOOD â€” This time, Grant Franklin didnâ€™t do Sweetwater in by him-self. He had plenty of help, though, as Midland Green-wood defeated Sweetwater, 67-46, on Tuesday. The win gave the Rangers (4-6) the fourth and final boys playoff spot from District 4-3A.
Greenwood jumped out to a 7-0 lead and never trailed against Sweetwater (3-7), which had tied Greenwood by beating Big Spring 60-45 this past Friday while the Rangers lost 66-40 against Monahans.
Note: The Highland girls basketball team will face Priddy or Santa Anna in a Class 1A, Division II area playoff game this week with the date, time and location to be announced.

Jesus Leanosâ€™ 29 points paced the Plowboys, who improved to 6-3 in district and 7-14 overall.
