Eagles start district play versus Clint

The Pecos Eagles go into the start of the District 2-4A volleyball play tonight on about as upbeat a note as can be hoped for after the first five weeks of the 2001 season. But the Eagles will have to pull off their biggest win of the season so far to come out of Clint with a victory over the Lions, even though Clint has had their own problems in the past two weeks.

Pecos and Clint will play about 8 p.m., following the freshman and varsity games between the Eagles and Lions. It's the first meeting between the teams since last October, when Pecos defeated Clint, 15-4, 15-9, in a one-game playoff for the 2-4A title. However, the Eagles graduated most of their front line players off that squad, while the Lions return senior hitters Collanne Bramblett and Marissa Arnold, who coach Becky Granado said the Eagles would focus on stopping tonight.

"We're going to try and come up with a game plan to take out Bramblett and Arnold," said Granado. "We should be OK as long as we don't panic."

The Eagles come into the game riding a three game winning streak that almost doubled their victory total for the season. They defeated Fort Stockton, Kermit and Presidio at home last week to improve to 7-15 on the season.

Clint's winning percentage so far this season is actually lower than Pecos' number _ the Lions come into the game with a 4-10 record, after a 15-5, 15-12 loss to El Paso Franklin on Sept. 7. Clint's games last week were canceled due to the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

But the Lions have played the toughest schedule so far of any district team, and swept 2-4A El Paso Mountain View in a pre-district match, handing the Lobos one of their two losses so far in the 2001 season.

The Eagles have actually fared better on the road against the Lions over the past few years, winning two out of three games in Clint.
