Eagles facing Lions to open 2-4A softball
PECOS, March 16, 2001 - District 2-4A play opens for the Pecos Eagles at
home this afternoon against the Clint Lions, the team they've edged out
the past two seasons for the district title.
The Eagles, who've struggled to score runs this season, host the Lions,
who've been in a lot of high-scoring games, at 4 p.m. at Martinez Field,
with Pecos coming in with a 3-9 season record after a 7-0 loss last Saturday
in Fort Stockton, while Clint comes in with a 6-5-1 record following their
10-5 victory on Tuesday over El Paso Parkland.
Two years ago, the Eagles beat out the Lions by a game to win the district
title, as the teams split their regular season games but Pecos won thanks
to a Clint loss to El Paso Mountain View. Last year it the Eagles who lost
to Mountain View, but they were able to win the 2-4A championship by sweeping
the Lions in their two district match-ups.
Pecos won at Clint last season, 8-1, then rallied for an 8-5 victory
at home. Alexa Marquez pitched both games for the Eagles, and coach Tammy
Walls said she would start again today, while Clint has gone with Neddie
Almanza and Adrianna Coranado on the mound in games this season. Almanza
picked up the victory last week in a 22-2 win over El Paso Bowie, while
Michelle Tullius and Yvette Maldonado have been the team's leading hitters.
Pecos has been shut out in six of their losses, and Walls said she is
looking to find ways to improve the team's hitting now that district is
underway. "I might play Evelyn (Galindo) at second base and Neftali Salgado
in right field. She's done a real good job hitting this week," Walls said
The Eagles need to get off to a good start in 2-4A play, since three
of their first four games are at home. Pecos goes to Fabens next Tuesday
then returns home to face Canutillo and Mountain View in their next two
LL schedules tryouts, seeks team coach
PECOS, March 16, 2001 - The Pecos Little League will be holding tryouts
on Saturday, beginning at the Pecos Senior League Field at Maxey Park.
Tryouts are being held at Maxey Park while renovations continue to Chano
Preito Field on Walthall Street. A new irrigation system and tournament-approved
light towers are being put in at the field, and work is scheduled to be
completed in time for the start of the 2001 season, on March 31. The new
lighting is needed in order for Pecos to host night games during tournament
competition in July.
League president Lee Serrano said there will be 14 teams in the A, B
and C divisions this season, but one more coach is still needed for the
Diamondbacks team, Serrano said.
No date has been set as of yet for the start of the 2001 Pecos Senior
