In a replay of last year’s bi-district playoffs, the Sweetwater softball team is again taking on Graham.
But this time, the best-of-three series will be played at Hawley. Today’s opener is at 5 p.m., with Game 2 set for 7:30 p.m. Friday. A decisive third game, if necessary, will be Saturday at a time that allows two of the Lady Mustangs’ starters who are competing in the Region 1-4A track meet in Lubbock to be available, in case they make the finals in one or both of their running events at the regional meet.
The Sweetwater-Graham winner will advance to face either Springtown or Stephenville in the area playoffs. In last year's bi-district playoff matchup, the Lady Blues rallied to win the series 2-1 with a pair of victories in Graham after Sweetwater prevailed in the opening game at Hermleigh.
The Lady Mustangs were the No. 4 playoff team in District 5-4A this season, while Graham advanced as the No. 1 seed in 6-4A.
