Pecos' game with Permian canceled due to wind, rain

The winds had died down and the skies had cleared over Pecos by 6 p.m. on Tuesday, but bad weather earlier in the day both here and in Odessa led the Pecos Eagles and Odessa Permian Panthers to cancel their scheduled baseball game at Eagle Field.

The Eagles were scheduled to play their final pre-district game against the Panthers, who were taking a break from their District 4-5A schedule to face Pecos for the second time this season, after a 14-0 win over the Eagles on March 5.

Pecos had won eight straight games going into Tuesday's contest, including a 7-4 win on March 9 at the Cotton Valley Tournament in San Elizario over the Clint Lions. The Eagles will open District 2-4A play on Friday with a 5 p.m. game against Clint, which scored 39 runs on Tuesday in a doubleheader sweep of Anthony.

Like Permian's baseball team, Pecos' softball team also took a break from district play on Tuesday after playing their first two games in 2-4A competition last week. The girls, however, did not fill in the opening with a non-district game, and so didn't have to worry about weather problems disrupting their schedule.

The Eagles are 2-0 after 8-0 and 12-3 wins over Clint and Fabens, and will return to district play this Friday with a 5 p.m. contest at Canutillo.

Eagles first, second in Greenwood, Clint golf

The Pecos Eagles golf team escaped the winds and rains in the Trans-Pecos and Permian Basin on Tuesday by heading west to El Paso, where the Eagles' `B' team finished second in the Clint Invitational.

"It was beautiful in El Paso," said Eagles' coach Tina Hendrick. "The wind wasn't blowing and the morning was about like it is today, then the sun came out and it got warmer."

Pecos' girls shot a 390 over 18 holes at Emerald Springs, to finish 31 strokes behind first place El Paso Hanks and 55 shots in front of third place El Paso Americas High School.

The second place finish came a day after Pecos' `A' team took home first place honors in the Greenwood Invitational, playing at Hogan Park in their final tournament before District 2-4A competition next month.

Pecos shot a 341 over 18 holes to beat out Fort Stockton by 29 strokes for the tournament title. Brownfield was third with a 405 score and Seminole placed fourth, with a 413 total.

Lauren Martinez won medallist honors for the tournament, shooting an 82 to beat out Frenship's Amber Summers by two strokes. Candace Hilliard was third in the tournament, with an 85 score, while Sarah McKinney shot an 86, Cassie Foster an 88 and Brandi North had a 90 for the Eagles' other scores.

At Emerald Springs, Jennie Canon tied for fifth best score on the day, shooting an 88, while Dena Dutchover shot a 99, Kristian Aguilar had a 101, Bianca Mendoza shot a 102 and Susan Bradley shot a 112 for Pecos.

Hendrick said the host Lions were the only other district school at the tournament with enough players for a team score, and shot a 470. "Fabens had three of his golfers there, but Canutillo wasn't there and Mountain View was not there," she said.

Clint, Fabens and Canutillo will have teams at the district tournament, set for April 8-9 at Santa Teresa Golf Course, while all district teams except for San Elizario will compete in the tournament on the boys' side.

Both the girls and boys `A' and `B' teams have qualified for regional competition each of the past three seasons.
