Eagles looking to stay in first

PECOS, Oct. 10, 2000 -- After having climbed back into first place for the second time in eight  days on Saturday, the Pecos Eagles' volleyball team will try to stay  there tonight, when they host the Fabens Wildcats in a 6:45 p.m. game.

The Eagles continued to play better on weekends than on Tuesday nights last week. After beating El Paso Mountain View on Sept. 30 to earn a three-way tie for first, Pecos lost at San Elizario a week ago, then came back on Saturday to defeat Clint, 15-12, 15-3, which put them back into a tie for first with the Lions and Lobos, all with 4-2 records in District 2-4A play.

But all three teams are still well within reach of Fabens and San Elizario, both of whom are 3-3 in district play. The Wildcats have won two straight, beating Mountain View last Tuesday while defeating Canutillo this past Saturday.

Last month in Fabens, the Eagles bounced back from their district-opening loss to Clint by sweeping the Wildcats, 15-4, 15-5. "I hope we can keep it up on Tuesday and continue to play the way we're capable of playing," said Eagles' coach Becky Granado.

Pecos managed to get Clint's tall front line players Collanne Bramblett and Michelle Tullius matched up on the back line in rotation with Eagles' hitter Philly Fobbs, and Granado said Pecos' servers were able to find them at times during both games. Ashley Salcido served out nine straight points in Game 2, turning a 5-2 lead into a 14-2 Eagle advantage, while Fobbs still managed to come up with 10 kills on the afternoon.

The senior had 11 kills in the first meeting with Fabens, which is the opposite of Clint this season. The Wildcats lost all their front line height to graduation the past two years and have been relying on quickness to stay in the district playoff race so far this fall.

Rebecca Garcia is the Wildcats' leading hitter, but in the first meeting the Eagles' were able to use their height advantage to shut down Fabens' hitters.

Tonight's game is the next-to-last at home this season for Pecos. They'll play back-to-back road games on Saturday at Canutillo and next Tuesday at Mountain View, before closing regular season play with an Oct. 21 home contest against San Elizario.
