Spikers start road swing after getting split in dual match

August 16, 2012

After coming away with a split in its dual match here Tuesday, the Sweetwater High School volleyball team will begin an extended stretch of time on the road today by playing a single match at Abilene Cooper — followed by a two-day tour-nament at Canyon Randall to complete the weekend.
Sweetwater (2-1) dropped its opening match to Seminole on Tuesday in four games by scores of 25-21, 22-25, 20-25, 20-25.

Youthful Highland hopes to be a contender

August 15, 2012

After advancing to the six-man state championship game three years ago, Highland has fallen on hard times of late, going just 5-14 the past two seasons.
But there were signs late last year that the Hornets were on the verge of turning things around. In fact, a muffed two-point kick at the end of a 43-42 loss to Aspermont in the next-to-last week was all that kept Highland from making it back to the postseason.

Lady Stangs rally to win opener in 5

August 14, 2012

Sweetwater High School’s volleyball team faced an early gut-check in its season-opening match here Monday, and passed it with flying colors with a come-from-behind 3-2 win over San Angelo Grape Creek.
The Lady Mustangs play two more matches tonight at home against Seminole and Water Valley, with the first match at 6:15 p.m.
Water Valley is the defending Class 1A state champion and after graduating just one player from that team, the Lady Wildcats enter this season ranked No. 1, while Seminole is also considered a playoff-caliber squad.

Roscoe ready to win again

August 13, 2012

Roscoe knows even the best high school football programs aren’t immune from having down periods.
After 13 straight trips to the playoffs, the Plowboys are entering the 2012 sea-son on the heels of an 0-10 season, the program’s first winless season in 21 years.

Mobley ready to restore pride in Mustangs

August 13, 2012

In his previous tour of duty here from 2004 through 2007, Shane Mobley served as a top assistant for a high school football program that perennially ranked among the most successful not only in Class 3A but the entire state of Texas.
And since his return to Sweetwater in April, this time as the Mustangs’ head coach, Mobley has been consumed with getting the program back to that level.
After a quarter century of excellence starting in 1984 in which Sweetwater missed the playoffs only three times, the Mustangs have gone just 9-21 the past three seasons with no post-season appearances.

Lady ‘Stangs begin Monday

August 13, 2012

Liz Miller is beginning her 10th year as Sweetwater’s head volleyball coach, and her 2012 team — which will tip off play on Monday by hosting Grape Creek at 6:15 p.m. — also has a great deal of returning experience.
Of the team’s 12 players, eight are seniors and five of them — or 83 percent of the starting rotation — earned all-district honors in 2011.
Furthermore, all five — middle blockers Kathleen Campbell and Shelby Cason, outside hitters Kel-si Crosson and Kendra Crosson and setter Suede Shirley — have at least two years of varsity experience.
