Sweetwater’s regular season is over, but the Lady Mustangs still have a volleyball match vs. Big Spring here later this week to determine District 5-4A playoff seeding. The 4 p.m. matchup Friday at Mustang Gym will decide the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds.
Chris Thompson (No. 6) is the Sweet-water Mustang Player of the Week after his outstanding game against Fort Stockton this past Friday. Thompson completed 20 of 26 passes for 308 yards and three scores, and ran for 114 yards and a touchdown as well in a 53-0 win.
A win at Big Spring — or Snyder loss — today puts Sweetwater’s volleyball team in the playoffs. Sweetwater is 2-4 with two matches left in District 5-4A play, the same record as Big Spring, which won the teams’ first 5-4A match in five games on Oct. 1.
Sweetwater’s season has come down to the last three games. A trip to Seminole this week starts the all-important gauntlet for the Mustangs, who continued their season-long blowout tour here on Friday against Fort Stockton.
