Sophomore Landry Stewart and freshman Taylor Ashbaugh will represent the Mustangs at the highest state level later this month after personal-best performances at the regional meet at Texas A&M University on Friday and Saturday.

Ashbaugh finished with personal best and school record times in the 100-yard fly and 100-yard breaststroke events; Stewart set personal best and school record times in the 200-yard individual medley and 500-yard freestyle.

The Marble Falls boys' basketball team couldn't remove the lid from the basket in a 57-49 loss to the Glenn Grizzlies at home on Friday.

The Mustangs went one-for-16 from three-point range in the game with their sole basket coming with 37 seconds remaining in the game.

“Our Achilles heel all year has been we don't hit enough shots,” Mustangs head coach Matt Bailey said. “We had some tough looks, and we had some good looks.”

The Marble Falls offense came out rolling and got some easy baskets at the rim after beating the press. The teams flashed different styles as the Mustangs worked the ball inside, and the Grizzlies attempted three-point shots on several consecutive possessions to open the game. Halfway through the first quarter, Glenn had only two makes, and the Mustangs led 12-6.
