Dates set for Eagles’ 2001 track season
PECOS, Jan. 18, 2001 -- The weather’s cold and the snow is blowing,
which in West Texas means track season can’t be far away.
Actually, the high school track seasons for the Pecos Eagle boys and girls
won’t start for another 4½ weeks, but cold and/or snow have
been common over the years for the Eagles during their early season meets,
which will start for the second year in a row with the Sandhills Relays at
Monahans, this year on Saturday, Feb. 24.
Both coach Lily Talamantez’ girls and coach Jerry Parent’s boys
teams will be going to the day-long Sandhills meet, before heading to Fort
Stockton for the Comanche Relays, which was the traditional season opener
for area track teams until last year.
This will also be the second year for the West of the Pecos Relays, since
its return after repairs were made to the Eagle Stadium track. The Pecos
Relays will be held on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, and will again
be a one-day event this year.
Talamantez said her team might also go to the Canyon Reef Relays in Snyder
on March 10, while the boys head to the West Texas Relays in Odessa that
weekend. The teams have one other split date on their schedules, March 23-24,
when the boys go to San Angelo while the girls head to Kermit.
This year’s District 2-4A meet will be in Canutillo, and will be on
the weekend of April 5-6. The Eagles’ district again will be holding
its meet a week ahead on most of the other Class 4A schools in West Texas,
so there will be a three week break before the Region I-4A track meet is
held at Angelo State University on April 27-28.
Talamantez girls qualified for regionals in only one event last season, the
400-meter relay, while the boys’ lone regional qualifier was Daniel
Terrazas in the 400-meter dash. This is the first year for the boys under
Parent, who served as Zavala Middle School track coach for many years.
