Eagle cagers start seasons in two weeks
The Pecos Eagle basketball teams will be opening their 2001-2002 seasons
in just under two weeks from today, with road games against the Crane Golden
Cranes and Monahans Loboes.
Pecos' girls will travel to Crane to start off their season, while the
boys go to Monahans for their opening game of the year, both on Tuesday,
Nov. 13. The boys also have a trip to Fort Stockton three days later, before
both teams play their home openers on Nov. 19, against the Presidio Blue
The games are the first of six doubleheaders at home this season for both
Pecos teams. The girls will host Fort Stockton and the boys will face Andrews
at home the day after the Presidio doubleheader, and have three more doubleheaders
scheduled for January and one for Feburary, with the final three involving
District 2-4A games for both squads.
The girls open the district portion of their schedule on Jan. 4 at Clint,
and host Fabens on Jan. 8 in their home district opener. The boys host Crane
that night, and then begin 2-4A play on Jan. 11 at Canutillo. Their district
home opener isn't scheduled until Jan. 22 when Clint comes to town.
The girls just missed ending a 10-year playoff drought last season, losing
their final game to wind up fourth in the 2-4A standings with a 4-6 record,
7-15 overall. The boys will be trying to end a 26-game loss streak in district
play this season, while improving on last year's 4-23 record.
Both Pecos teams will travel to tournaments in Monahans and Fort Stockton
in December, while the boys also have tournament play on Nov 29-30 at Andrews.
The boys' junior varsity will also host its own tournament on Dec. 6-8 at
the Pecos High School gym.
Monahans and Fort Stockton are the boys' other scheduled pre-district
home opponents this season, while the girls will host Odessa Permian, Crane
and Alpine in December before beginning 2-4A play. The girls close their
season with a Feb. 5 game at San Elizario, while the boys end regular season
play the following week, with a Feb. 12 home game against Fabens.
