Pecos playing

last scrimmage

against OHS

Pecos Eagles coach Bubba Williams will be getting his first look at a couple of players, and a limited look at some of his pitchers on Saturday, when the Eagles play their final pre-season scrimmage, against the Odessa High Bronchos.

The Eagles will scrimmage the Bronchos at 1 p.m. in Odessa, and for the first time, will have all their players available following the end of Pecos' basketball season.

However, Williams said neither junior Matthew Levario nor senior Richard Rodriguez would see any time on the mound against OHS.

"The first or second day they're out, they're not ready to throw, so we'll just look at who can," said Williams.

That group includes juniors Barney Rodriguez, Rigo Esparza and senior Capi Magana, though Williams said both Rodriguez' and Magana's arms were sore following Tuesday's scrimmage against Presidio.

Williams said the two would pitch, but "We'll see how far they can go."

Rodriguez was touched up for six runs in the first inning of Tuesday's scrimmage, which the Blue Devils won by a 9-7 score.

Freddie Torres had a three-run homer for the Eagles and Mason Abila an RBI double.

Williams said he would look at both at catcher, while Levario would play third and Rodriguez second base.

The other two players just out from basketball, Oscar Parada and Joey Ortega, should see action at third base and first base as well on Saturday, the Eagles' coach said.

Eagles second in Andrews JV girls golf

The Pecos Eagle girls junior varsity golf team placed second to the host Andrews Mustangs on Thursday, at the Andrews JV Tournament.

Coach Tina Hendrick said the Eagles shot a 400 and finished 20 strokes in back of the Mustangs in the seven-team field. Dena Dutchover shot a 96 for the low round of the afternoon for Pecos, while Jeanie Canon and Kristen Aguilar both shot 101s, Sarah McKinney shot a 102 and Bianca Mendoza shot a 113 for the Eagles.

It was the first tournament of the season for Canon, Aguilar and Mendoza, while Dutchover went with the varsity to the season-opening San Angelo Tournament and McKinney played last weekend in Big Spring.

"They needed to play," said Hendrick. "It's exposure and they needed competition. I'm trying to find a fifth player for the varsity right now, and the more experience they get the better they can become."

Hendrick said both the varsity and JV teams would travel to Fort Stockton for tournament play next weekend. Meanwhile, Pecos' boys were in Fort Stockton for their second tournament of the season today and Saturday. The boys placed 13th last weekend at Big Spring, while the girls won their division at the tournament, after a fourth place finish the previous weekend in San Angelo.

Bears' playoff set for Monday at SRSU

The Balmorhea Bears will play the Marathon Mustangs in the bi-district round of the Class A-Division II playoffs at 8 p.m. Monday night at Sul Ross State University in Alpine, after playing a practice game there tonight at 7 p.m. against the Sanderson Eagles.

The Bears, who cracked the final Top 10 high school basketball rankings this week, go into the playoffs ranked No. 10 with a 19-1 record, and finished undefeated in District 9-A play.

Sanderson, meanwhile, won the District 10-A championship and Marathon placed second in that district.

Coach Adolfo Garcia said if the Bears win their game on Monday, they will probably play a week from tonight in the area round of the playoffs at Odessa College, but final details on that game wouldn't be known until Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the Pecos Eagles' final regular season game against the San Elizario Eagles, scheduled for Thursday, was canceled, after District 2-4A principals in the El Paso area decided not to play any second or third-place playoff games.

San Elizario, 6-3, will get second place behind Fabens and face El Paso High, while Clint, 6-4, will get the third place playoff spot over Canutillo and will face El Paso Bowie in the bi-district round of the playoffs.
