Eagle swimmers host Permian

PECOS, Oct. 5, 2000 -- The Pecos Eagles swimming team will hold the first of their  three home swim meets this season tonight, when they take on  the Odessa Permian Panthers in a dual meet, starting at 6 p.m.

Diving competition will kick off tonight's meet, with the swimming events set to start about 7:15 p.m., Eagles' coach Terri Morse said.

Pecos' boys opened the season this past Saturday with a 104-68 victory over El Paso Montwood in El Paso, while the Rams beat the Eagle girls by a 99-71 score. Meanwhile, Odessa Permian's boys defeated Abilene High and Abilene Cooper in a three-way meet at Abilene, with the Panther girls also beating Cooper, while falling to Abilene High.

Morse said she was without several of her swimmers in El Paso, and will again be a little shorthanded tonight.

"I will change the lineup for the Permian meet. I won't have three JV (football) players I had at Saturday's meet, so I won't have as many relays," she said. "Plus I still have two girls who are involved with other sports."

Aside from the missing swimmers, Morse said there would be other changes from Saturday. "Some of them swam in events they normally don't swim in (at El Paso)," she said. "But they'll be back to swimming their normal events on Thursday."

Most of the times for the Panther swimmers at Abilene and for the Eagles at El Paso were about the same, so tonight's meet should be close. Pecos has finished ahead of Permian the last few years in head-to-head competition at invitational meets.

This evening's dual meet is the first of two at home for the Eagles. They'll host Fort Stockton on Oct. 18, and then host the Pecos Invitational on Nov. 10-11 at the Pecos High School pool.

Sub-varsity gridders face Panthers again

PECOS, Oct. 5, 2000 -- Playing in a district with five El Paso teams means the Pecos  Eagles' sub varsity football squads have to find games where they can. In  this case that means the second match-up of the season today against  the Fort Stockton Panthers, with the third to follow for a couple of the teams  a week from today.

Pecos' junior high and junior varsity teams will face Fort Stockton, with the eighth grade and JV teams going on the road, while the seventh graders play at home. The junior high `A' and `B' games will start at 4 and 5:30 p.m., while the JV will begin at 6 p.m.

Because of grades, the Eagles were unable to field both freshman and JV squads tonight, so the two teams have been combined and the scheduled freshman game against the Panthers at Eagle Stadium has been canceled.

Four weeks ago the JV used a late touchdown at home to defeat Fort Stockton by a 15-8 score for their second straight win to open the season, but since then have lost three straight games, the latest by a 26-20 score at home last week against Monahans.

Today's games are the road openers for the eighth graders, who split with the Panthers in Pecos last month. The `A' team dropped a 6-0 decision, while the `B' squad won by a 28-0 count. Both eighth grade teams come into the game off losses to Monahans, the `A' team by a 26-12 score and the `B' team by a 24-12 margin.

The seventh graders lost their season openers at Fort Stockton, 30-0 in the `A' game and 14-0 in the `B' game. Last week, the seventh graders split their games at Monahans, winning the `A' game 6-0 while falling in the `B' contest, 14-6.

For the junior high `B' teams, this will be the first of two straight games against Fort Stockton. They'll face the Panthers next Thursday while the `A' team and JV are idle, and while the varsity prepares for their District 2-4A opener against Clint.
