Pecos hosting annual tennis tourney

PECOS, June 22, 2000 -- About 45 players are expected to compete on Friday at the Pecos High School tennis courts in the Pecos Cantaloupe/Black Gold Circuit Tennis Tournament.

Pecos Eagles' tennis coach Bernadette Ornelas said the tournament is part of the series of Black Gold Tournaments across West Texas during the summer. It will start at 9 a.m. and will continue on Saturday with adult division matches.

"Basically we'll start all out junior event matches in the morning and start at the doubles events in the afternoon," Ornelas said. "Right now we've got close to 45 entries, so it's going to be an all-day event."

Ornelas said along with local entries, there will be players from Monahans, Odessa, Andrews, Wink and Abilene in the tournament, which is divided by age groups in both the boys and girls divisions.

The tournament will begin following completion of the Pecos-Barstow-Toyah summer tennis program. "Today is the last day for the summer program," Ornelas said of the USA 1-2-3 Tennis course.

"Overall the kids had a real good time. Some of the kids who have been in the program in the past developed their games so they will be able to compete," in the tournament, which has youth divisions of 12 and under, 14 and under, 16 and under an 18 and under.
