Mustangs are back on track

November 22, 2017 - The Sweetwater Mustangs are the only team from the Big Country still playing in the Class 4A playoffs. 

Four weeks ago, the Mustangs looked like one off the teams in Division II that could make a run to Arlington, then they lost back to back games to Seminole and Monahans. 

Those games hurt. 

They also got the Mustangs attention, and they are 2-0 since.

Chris Thompson said, "After those two losses we were just more focused. We were able to just not worry about being undefeated or nothing which helped a lot. Now we're just able to play ball."

Mason Maxwell said, "It was just one of those things, we just kind of put it behind us. We decided to use that as a building experience, a learning experience. I mean I think we had our expectations a little higher than what we realy came to play like, and I think now we're back on that level of expectation, and I think we're playing like exactly what we need to be doing."

The Mustangs don't have to go far to get to their next playoff game. 

They meet Vernon in Breckenridge Friday night. 

The game kicks at 7 p.m.
