Hoops clinic brings in 16 PHS players

Volleyball and tennis pre-season workouts will begin next Monday. Monday and Tuesday it was Pecos High School basketball players who were working out inside the PHS gym, as part of a basketball clinic put on by Dr. Chet Sample of Sul Ross State University in Alpine.

"We have 16 girls, and all of them are incoming freshman through 12 graders," said Eagles' varsity basketball coach Veronica Valenzuela. "There was a mix-up on what was posted on Ch. 6. It was supposed to be for grades 7 through 12, but it was put in as 9 through 12 and no junior high girls showed up."

"Dr. Sample, the longtime SRSU basketball coach, had those girls who were at the clinic working on posting up for inside shots and guarding post players while near the basket during Tuesday's session, along with shooting drills," Valenzuela said.

Valenzuela also said they were missing two varsity players during the two-day clinic, while most of the players at the clinic were on the junior varsity or freshman teams last year. "We have three sophomores and three freshmen out there. The rest of them are all juniors," she said.

Regular season play for the girls' basketball team won't begin until November. The Eagles finished fourth last year in the District 2-4A basketball standings, missing out on a shot at the playoffs with a loss in their final regular season game.
