Eagles face long Friday in Seminole

The Pecos Eagles will have a long day in Seminole on Friday, which they'll try to keep from becoming a `long' day on the volleyball court.

The Eagles play their third and final tournament of the 2001 season in Seminole, and will face a rough trio of pool round opponents. Coach Becky Granado said the Eagles would open against the host Maidens at 8:30 a.m., then will have a five hour wait before facing Hereford at 2:30 p.m. Their final pool round match is four hours later, against Amarillo Caprock at 6:30 p.m.

"It's going to be a long time between games in the morning," said Granado, whose team lost to Seminole, 15-4, 15-7, in the semifinals of their own tournament last Saturday. The Maidens went on to defeat El Paso Riverside in three games to win the Cantaloupe Classic title, after finishing second to the Eagles a year ago.

Hereford, meanwhile, already owns one win this season over one of the Eagles' District 2-4A rivals in Clint, as they downed the Lions at the Pampa Tournament two weeks ago by 15-7, 15-8 scores.

Pecos followed their tournament win at home up a year ago by going 3-3 in pool play at Seminole, then lost to Andrews and Lubbock Coronado in the championship round on Saturday. This year, getting to the championship round would be a big boost for the Eagles, who have lost four straight matches and are 3-12 on the season.

They lost on Tuesday to Odessa High and Alpine, though Granado said they played better than they did last Saturday in their tournament. "We played better, but we're still making a lot of mental mistakes like bumping free balls over or bumping the ball out. That's a lack of concentration, and that's uncalled for," she said.

Pecos' freshmen are off this weekend but the Eagles' junior varsity will also be in tournament action, at Midland. They'll play pool round matches on Friday at 11 a.m., 12 noon and 2 p.m. against Sterling City, Lubbock Coronado and Snyder.

Pecos sub-varsity teams open 2001 seasons

The regular season is still a day off for the Pecos Eagles' varsity football team, but the season begins this evening for the Eagles' sub varsity squads, as they travel to season-opening games in Kermit and Carlsbad.

The junior varsity will go to Kermit for a scheduled 7 p.m. game against the Yellowjackets, while the freshmen will head to Carlsbad to face the Cavemen, starting at 6 p.m. CDT.

Although it's the season opener for the ninth graders, it's actually a rematch for the teams, who scrimmaged each other in Pecos two weeks ago. The Eagles won that one, two touchdowns to one, and were not scheduled to play the Cavemen again this year, but scheduled the game when Kermit came up short of having enough players for both a JV and a freshman squad.

Pecos' JV went to Carlsbad two weeks ago along with the varsity, but didn't scrimmage the Cavemen. Instead, they took on the Jal and Loving, N.M. varsity teams, beating Loving by a 3-1 score in a 20-play series while playing Jal to a scoreless tie in a 15-play series. The JV will face the Cavemen in a regular season game on Oct. 11 in Pecos.
