Eagles await word on foes in tournament

PECOS, Dec. 21, 2000 -- Like Christmas presents from Santa, the Pecos Eagle basketball teams don’t know what they’ll be getting next week, when the resume play following the holiday with tournament games in Midland and Fort Stockton.

Both the boys and girls teams come off road losses on Tuesday - the boys by a 64-62 score at Monahans and the girls by a 62-52 margin in Presidio. The girls will be back in action on Dec. 28 in the first round of the Midland Christian Tournament, while the boys will resume play a day later, at the Fort Stockton Tournament.

But as of Wednesday, neither coach Veronica Valenzuela nor coach Tino Acosta knew who their first round opponents would be.

“They still haven’t sent me a bracket,” said Valenzuela, whose team will be playing their final games before the start of District 2-4A play on Jan. 5. The girls go into next week’s play with a 2-6 record.

The boys are 3-8 going into what coach Tino Acosta said would be an abbreviated Fort Stockton tournament on Dec. 29-30. “They didn’t have enough teams for a full tournament, so we’ll be playing three games against each other,” he said.

The boys still have road games at Greenwood and Fort Stockton before their district opener, on Jan. 12 at home to Canutillo.
