Junior high girls get 5th at Andrews
PECOS, May 9, 2000 -- The Pecos Eagles' junior high girls golf team closed
out their spring tournament schedule this past Saturday with a fifth place
finish in tournament play at Andrews.
The host Mustangs won their own tournament with a 189 score, and were
followed by Fort Stockton, Monahans, Snyder and Pecos, which shot a 231
over nine holes of play.
Coach Kim Calhoun said her girls did well after adjusting to the tougher
course and the addition of Snyder to the Andrews tournament field.
"They did a good job staying away from the water," Calhoun said. "For
the most part, they did real well, because the course was very challenging
Sarah McKinney led Pecos with a 54 score, one stroke ahead of Stephanie
Herrera. Jenny Canon shot a 60, Jena Cranfill had a 62 and Ashley Hoesburgh
shot a 73 for the other Pecos team scores, while the Eagles' lone medallist
golfer, Susan Bradley, shot a 75.
"Sarah McKinney did a really good job staying up front with Andrews'
girls, and gave them good competition," Calhoun said. "Stephanie Herrera
also did a good job on a tough course."
She added that McKinney placed seventh in the overall medallist standings
for the tournament, while Cranfill slipped back a bit, after shooting a
49 at Fort Stockton the week before.
"Hopefully all the girls will stay involved and will be taking summer
golf," Calhoun added. Times and dates for summer golf and the other Pecos-Barstow-Toyah
summer recreation programs will be announced later this week, following
the monthly school board meeting.

students in kindergarten through eighth grade, at the Pecos High School
The 90-minute event is designed to increase interest in tennis among
elementary and junior high school students, and will begin at 6:30 p.m.,
Pecos High School tennis coach Bernadette Ornelas said.
The carnival will involve various tennis games, and door prizes will
be given out at the end of the event, Ornelas said. This is the third year
