Eagles unsure of opponents in
Andrews pool round play
PECOS, February 15, 2001 - The Pecos Eagles softball team know who they're
going to play in their first game Friday at the Andrews Invitational Tournament,
and they know where and when they're going to play as well.
After that, things are a little up in the air.
The tournament starts today with a pair of Andrews teams facing El
Paso Ysleta and El Paso Eastwood in pool round games, while on Friday,
the Eagles will play in one of three 9 a.m. games, against the Frenship
Tigers. But how things will go following that is unknown.
"They only sent us this," said assistant coach Becky Wein, referring
to the opening round games, plus a map showing the softball field sites
in Andrews. Pecos will play Frenship at the west side softball complex,
at the same time Lubbock Coronado takes on Midland Greenwood and Lamesa
faces Lubbock Monterrey.
The pool round games are only scheduled to last three innings or for
one hour, and at 10:15 a.m. Levelland will face Monahans, Kermit will take
on Odessa High and Ysleta will face Midland Christian. Pool play will determine
seedings for Saturday's brackets.
Pecos' season-opening game on Tuesday didn't even make it past 2½
innings, but did run about an hour-and-a-half, as the Eagles scored a 26-1
win over Crane, in what was the Golden Cranes' first-ever varsity game.
The Eagles also posted scrimmage win last week over Kermit and Greenwood.
Eagle starters do well again in scrimmage
PECOS, February 15, 2001 - The second pre-season scrimmage for the Pecos
Eagles baseball team went about like the first one did _ the results on
the field were better for the Eagles than the results on the scoreboard
Pecos defeated Fort Stockton by a 6-5 score, in a game where the Eagles
again took an early lead with their starters before running into problems
with their reserve players. Eagles' coach Bubba Williams was in a day-long
meeting on Tuesday, but assistant coach Junior Williams said, "We were
ahead 5-0 when we started subbing and they came back."
Pecos again went with Barney Rodriguez and Angel Villalobos on the
mound, as they did in last Friday' scrimmage against Permian. "They actually
got their runs off Angel, but that was because of the errors behind him,"
At bat, he said Alex Garcia, Mason Abila and Sebero Jaquez hit the
ball well, along with Rodriguez and Villalobos.
"Overall it was a good scrimmage. We got what we wanted out of it,"
The Eagles' final pre-season scrimmage will be this Saturday afternoon
at home against the Greenwood Rangers. It will also be the first scrimmage
for Pecos with all their players available, following the end of basketball
on Tuesday. Regular season play starts for the Eagles next Friday, with
a home game against the Monahans Loboes.
