After graduating 23 seniors off last year’s 10-3 team, second-year Sweetwater coach Ben McGehee knows his roster will look a little different in 2018. But don’t think for a minute that he or his Mustangs will be ceding District 1-4A Division II to any of their league mates.
It’s true that Sweetwater returns just 15 lettermen — tied with Pecos for the smallest number in the district. And yes, the Mustangs will be filling a number vacant spots with members of a 3-7 junior varsity team and a fair number of freshmen and sophomores.
But McGehee insists his squad will be ready to compete by the time district play rolls around.
