“Our men’s and women’s teams are having very exciting and successful seasons, and this will be the final home game and the final regular-season game for both,” said Mustang Athletic Director Lu Sweet. “We invite everyone in Sweetwater County to come out and help us thank our sophomores for all of their hard work and effort during the past two seasons. We really appreciate the United Steelworkers’ ongoing sponsorship of our Labor Night event, and we look forward to seeing a huge crowd here for our final games of the season.”
