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
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.
