SHS athletes try for regional berths at Pecos

April 19, 2013

Regional berths will be sought today by 15 Sweet-water High School athletes — nine girls and six boys — who are competing in the area track meet at Pecos.
Their goals are to secure a top-four finish and advance to the Region I-3A meet set for April 26-27 in Lubbock.
The boys will be led by Nick Nemir, who has qualified to compete in four events for the Mustangs — the 110-meter and 300-meter hurdles, long jump and as a member of the 400-meter relay — and is trying for his third straight trip to the regional meet.

SHS teams are making history

April 18, 2013

Having successful baseball and softball teams at Sweetwater High School is something people here haven’t been accustomed to seeing on a regular basis.
In fact, having both teams in the playoffs the same year has never happened. That’s why the past week at SHS has been, well ... historic.
Dating back to 1996, the first year Sweetwater played softball, each of the teams had been to the playoffs on three occasions — but never in the same year.
For most of that 17-year period, the losses — especially against district competition — have far outnumbered the wins.

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.
