Pecos JV golfers get fourth in Alpine tournament play
PECOS, March 20, 2001 - The Pecos Eagles' junior varsity golf team took
second place in tournament play at Alpine just prior to Spring Break.
Coach Kim Anderson said the Eagles shot a 379 to finish behind the host
Bucks, who shot a 347 in the tournament. Monahans' JV team was third, with
a 392 score.
Individually, Sal Nichols, Dustin Gulihur and Jacob Gonzales earned
all-tournament honors by finishing in the Top 10, with Nichols shooting
a 94 and Gulihur and Gonzales 94s. Peter Vasquez shot a 98 and Daniel Munoz
had a 115 for the Eagles' other scores.
Anderson said the last scheduled tournament for the boys before District
2-4A competition is March 30 in Marfa, though the Eagles may add a tournament
in El Paso on April 2. District play is set for Pecos on April 9, with
the top two finishers advancing to Region I-4A competition.
Eagles facing `Cats in 2-4A road opener
PECOS, March 20, 2001 - The Pecos Eagles softball team heads west this
afternoon for their first District 2-4A road game, a 5 p.m. start against
the Fabens Wildcats.
The Eagles had to rally in the fifth and sixth innings of their district
opener on Friday at Martinez Field before coming away with a 13-9 victory
over the Clint Lions. Meanwhile, Fabens was having an easier time in their
first 2-4A game, as they routed Canutillo by a 15-3 final score. Pecos'
win left them with a 4-9 record on the season, while Fabens saw their season
mark improve to 6-8-1.
Pecos used 10 walks in their last two at-bats to rally on Friday, after
drawing no walks in the first four innings of their game against Clint.
The Eagles were able to win despite quiet games at bat from their top hitters,
Rebecca Wein, Stephanie Herrera and Ashley Salcido.
"They seem to be (hitting better) in practice," coach Tammy Walls said.
"It would be a big boost if we'd just have patience in the box and wait
for a pitch we can go with. It's when we reach for pitches that we get
into a bind."
Herrera got the win in relief of Alexa Marquez, who Walls said would
start today against a Fabens team that has made some major improvements
since last year when they lost to Pecos by 25-6 and 17-1 scores.
Marquez no-hit the Wildcats in the 17-1 win, while pitcher Corrine Garcia
ran into control problems, missing the strike zone on 20 of 22 pitches
at one point in the game. Garcia is again the Wildcats' No. 1 pitcher this
season, and got the win over Canutillo on Friday.
Other returning players for Fabens include Naomi Roman, who scored the
only run for the Wildcats in their last game against the Eagles.
After today's game, the Eagles come home to face Canutillo and El Paso
Mountain View in their next two games, on Friday and a week from today.
