Eagles suffer late problems in scrimmage
There were no big surprises one way or the other for the Pecos Eagles
volleyball team, during their weekend scrimmages against six other squads
in Pecos and Monahans.
"We're about the same. We started out real strong and then kind of faded
out. We lost our concentration," said Eagles' coach Becky Granado of the
scrimmages, on Friday against Fort Davis and Wink at the Pecos High School
gym and on Saturday in Monahans against the Loboettes, Odessa Permian, Kermit
and Odessa High.
"We did some good things. As far as passing we did a good job passing
the ball, and the hitting was what I expected it to be. We had a couple of
good blocks, which is something we're going to have to have, but ball dropped
in too much. We're not playing as aggressive as we should," Granado said.
The Eagles had been working out with a dozen juniors and seniors as part
of the varsity squad, but the Eagles' coach said that lineup will change
on Tuesday, when Pecos goes to Odessa High for their season openers against
the Bronchos and Alpine Bucks.
"I'm going to carry 10 girls," she said, adding she may add some sophomores
to the varsity squad, which graduated most of their front line players from
a year ago.
Seniors Michelle Saenz and Christina Arenivas are the team's lone returning
blocker from last year, and she and Tiana Terry were the middle blockers
for the Eagles during their scrimmages over the weekend. Three other seniors,
Jessica Rodriguez and back line players Kathy Maldonado and Victoria Gomez
are the other returning players for Pecos.
Tuesday's matches against OHS and Alpine are scheduled to begin at 4:30
p.m. at the OHS gym. Pecos' junior varsity and freshmen teams also scrimmaged
over the weekend, and will begin their seasons on Tuesday against the Bucks
