Sweetwater's Got Talent is Saturday

April 17, 2013

Following a 20-year run of Star Search, the local talent show sponsored by the Sweetwater Kiwanis Club, the civic group is unveiling a new type of talent show in an effort to boost involvement.
Introducing..."Sweetwater's Got Talent."
With only one performing act at last year's Star Search finals in the high school division, change was necessary, according to Kiwanis Club president Mitch Moore. The format of the show at the finals will be changed to resemble the television talent show "America's Got Talent" but with a local twist.

Mustangs end playoff drought, grab outright lead with 10-5 win

April 17, 2013

MONAHANS — For the first time since 2004, Sweetwater’s baseball team is in the Class 3A playoffs.
But wait, there’s more.
After Tuesday’s 10-5 win at Monahans — coupled with Snyder’s 7-4 victory over Wylie — the Mustangs find themselves all alone atop District 4-3A.
But it took a late rally for Sweetwater (7-1) to defeat Monahans, which had taken a 5-4 lead in the bottom of the sixth and was just three outs from an upset victory.

Lady Mustangs rally, but lose on walk-off hit in the 7th

April 17, 2013

MONAHANS — Sweet-water’s softball team came into Monahans on Friday having clinched a playoff berth, but still with a chance to claim at least a share of the District 4-3A title.
And after rallying from an early four-run deficit to tie the game at 4-4, the Lady Mustangs’ dream was still alive. But missed opportunities to take the lead led to a disappointing finish, as Monahans scored the winning run in the seventh inning on a walk-off single to claim a 5-4 victory.
