Pecos golf teams get first at Marfa, Fabens tourneys

The Pecos Eagle boys' golf teams picked up a pair of first place finishes using slightly different lineups during the past week, in golf tournaments held in Marfa and El Paso.

The Eagles' junior varsity team went to Marfa a week ago and won first place there, while the varsity was in El Paso this past Tuesday and took first in the Fabens Invitational. However, the lineups for both the JV and varsity squads was different than in previous weeks, and coach Kim Anderson said the changes were done in preparation for next week's District 2-4A Tournament at Santa Teresa.

The varsity shot a 350 at Emerald Springs on Tuesday to finish 36 strokes up on second place El Paso Del Valle, while Fabens was third with a 401 score. "I didn't have my No. 1 and No. 2 golfers, so we'll probably get both teams to regionals," Anderson said, since all of Pecos' district rivals except for Clint were at the tournament.

Jake McKinney shot an 83 to place second in the medallist standings on Tuesday, while Casey Breiten was third with an 85 score. Jack Stickels won a tie-breaker from David Bradley for fourth after both shot 91s, and San Nichols had a 95 for the Eagles' other score.

Last Thursday Michael Nichols shot a 78 and Pete Vasquez had an 80 at Marfa, where the Eagles finished with a 361 score to beat out the host Shorthorns by four strokes for the tournament title. Jacob Gonzales shot a 98, Dustin Gulihur had a 105 and James Busby shot a 145 for the Eagles' other scores.

The district tournament will be on Monday and Tuesday at Santa Teresa, located on the northwest side of El Paso, and Anderson said the Eagles would go out there a day early to try and get in a practice round on one of the other area golf courses.

District play is also on Monday and Tuesday for Pecos' girls at Santa Teresa. Both the girls and boys teams will be trying to qualify their varsity and JV squads for Region I-4A competition for the fourth straight year.

Eagles have home court, but no top seeds at tourney

The Pecos Eagles tennis team was No. 1 in District 2-4A during the fall season. But none of the Eagles will be seeded No. 1 going into the spring 2-4A tournament, Friday and Saturday at the Pecos High School tennis courts.

"We didn't get any No. 1 seeds. I kind of got out-voted on any of the kids I put up," said Eagles' coach Mike Ortiz. "We've got several No. 2s and No. 3s, but no No. 1s."

The seedings are unusual, especially on the girls' side, where Pecos swept all six first team singles spots and all three first team doubles spots on the All-District 2-4A tennis team for the fall season.

The top two finishers in each division advance to Region I-4A competition in San Angelo later this month, and Ortiz said with only four of the six district teams _ Pecos, Clint, Fabens and El Paso Mountain View _ having tennis programs, "We're going to play all the way to the finals on Friday. Saturday we'll play the finals, the third place matches and any playbacks if needed," Ortiz said."

Pecos players are seeded second in both girls and boys singles brackets. Natalia Ornelas is seeded No. 2 behind Fabens' Monica Andrade in girls singles, while teammate Amanda Fleming is seeded third. Ornelas will open up against Jackie Esparza of Fabens, and Fleming will face Bianca Armendariz of Clint in her first round match.

In boys' singles, Clint's Martin Renteria is seeded first, ahead of Pecos' Trent Graham, while Stephen Lamb goes in as the No. 4 seed, behind Mountain View's Larry Arroyo. Even though he's the No. 2 seed, Graham drew a first round bye and will face the winner between Arroyo and Clint's Stephen Baca in the semifinals, while Lamb faces Roy Gonzalez of Fabens in his first round match.

In doubles play, Bobby Sotelo and Jay Dannelley are seeded third and will face Hugh Gines and Jose DeHero of Clint in their opening round match. Orlando Mendoza and Michael Orona are matches up against the Lions' other doubles team, No. 1 seeds Alvaro Chacon and Daniel Sosa. Simon Trujillo and Orlando Olmos of Fabens are the No. 2 seeds in doubles, and their teammates, Victor Sigala and Aldo Gutierrez, are seeded fourth.

On the girls' side, Elizabeth Carreon and Jennifer Rayos are the highest seeds for Pecos, at No. 4, and will play Daila Corrales and Bianca Bustillos of Clint. Whitney Lamb and Catherine Garcia are matched against No. 2 seeds Cynthia Falcon and Diana Ceniceros in the opening round.

Fabens' team of Jennifer Ramos and Ava Gutierrez are seeded first, and the Wildcats' Sahirah Ihmud and Alyse Ramos are seeded third in the bracket.

This will be the last season that district team and individual tennis will be split into spring and fall seasons. Beginning next year, the Eagles will be able to play non-district team matches in the fall, but all district competition will be in the spring when Pecos drops down to Class 3A competition.
