Eagles looking to regroup against Bucks, Bronchos

The Pecos Eagles, who are pretty much back to square one after their Saturday afternoon performance at the Cantaloupe Classic Volleyball Tournament, will try to regroup today against the same two teams they started the 2001 season against, when the Eagles travel to Alpine to face the Bucks and Odessa High Bronchos this afternoon at 4:30 p.m.

The Eagles got an easy win over district rival Fabens in the first game of their third place match Saturday, then fell apart in the final two games and lost, 3-15, 15-4, 15-4, to drop to 3-10 on the season.

"We just seem like we're happy to be out there, that's all," said coach Becky Granado, as her team had problems both serving and setting up spikes against Fabens, one of the teams the Eagles figure to battle for a post-season berth beginning in mid-September.

Two weeks ago in Odessa, the Eagles opened their 2001 season with a 15-5, 15-8 loss to Alpine and a 15-2, 15-8 loss to Odessa High. Granado made several changes to her varsity roster and lineup after that loss, and the Eagles seemed to be improving over the past week, until Saturday's loss to Fabens.

"It looks like I'll have to look at another lineup change," said Granado, whose team faces and even tougher challenge later in the week, when they go to the Seminole Invitational. Pecos will face Hereford, Amarillo Caprock and Seminole, which beat Fabens in pool play on the way to winning the Cantaloupe Classic on Saturday.

Pecos' freshmen and junior varsity teams will also be playing Alpine and OHS today. The JV won consolation in their own tournament this past weekend, beating Wink, 15-4, 15-5, after downing Alpine's JV, 8-15, 15-0, 15-13, in the consolation semifinals. On Friday, the JV beat Presidio, 15-6, 15-6, and lost to Andrews, 15-14, 15-13, and Odessa Permian, 15-7, 15-7, in their pool matches. Permian won the tournament title over OHS, 15-12, 15-11.
