Recent Sweetwater High School graduate J.P. Poe is one of five pitchers in the 2015 All-Big Country baseball teamâ€™s starting rotation, as announced recently by the Abilene Reporter-News.
Two local sports camps are planned this month.
Sweetwaterâ€™s second football appearance in the Texas 7-on-7 Championships is set to begin on Thursday at College Station, after punching its ticket several weeks ago by winning a state qualifying tournament in Brock for Division II.
The latter classification is for Class 4A and below public schools as well as smaller private schools.
Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix breaks down where big name NBA free agents like LaMarcus Aldridge, Paul Millsap, Greg Monroe, Danny Green, Tyson Chandler and Rajon Rondo might end up.
Sweetwater will be sending a team to the Texas State 7-on-7 Division II state championships July 9-10 in College Station.

The 2015 Sweetwater High School softball team was recently honored by Sweetwater ISD trustees with a resolution at their meeting. The resolution said the Lady Mustangs "have brought honor, pride, and distinction" to both the city and the Sweetwater ISD during the past season and "have excelled in performance" by winning the bi-district championship and "competing admirably" in the area playoffs against Fort Stockton. Pictured here are the team members who were on hand to be honored by trustees.
