Eagles put 12 on all-state swimming squad
Five members of the Pecos Eagles swimming team received Class 4A all-state
honors, while seven other Eagles were named to the second team all-district
squad, based on the results of this year's district, regional and state swim
Eagle swimmers Will Oglesby, K.W. Winkles, Gary Garcia, Max Key, and Patrick
McChensey received first team honors as members of two of the Eagles' three
relay squads, while Oglesby was also a first-team selection in one of his
two individual events.
Six girls were named to the second team in swimming because of their results
in the relay and individual races, as was boys' diver Michael Juarez, and
several other Pecos swimmers received honorable mention, according to Eagles'
coach Terri Morse.
"The Top 8 swimmers were named to the first team, the next eight were
on the second team and the ones after that received honorable mention," said
Morse, with the times based on the swimmers combined results at the district,
regional and state levels.
The boys' 200 medley relay team of Garcia, Winkles, Oglesby and Key finished
seventh overall among the Class 4A teams in that event, and Winkles, McChensey,
Oglesby and Key were seventh overall in the 400 freestyle relay. Individually,
Oglesby earned first team honors for placing sixth overall in the 100-yard
butterfly, and earned honorable mention in the 100-yard backstroke.
Winkles was a second team selection in the 100-yard breaststroke after
placing 11th overall, and earned honorable mention in the 200
yard individual medley, and Juarez was 10th in the 1-meter diving
competition. The boys' 200-yard freestyle relay team of McChensey, Garcia,
Key and Daniel Quintana also was an honorable mention pick.
All three of the girls' relay teams were second team all-state picks,
even though the 200 freestyle relay team didn't advance beyond the district
level. "They took the times from the district, regional and state meets.
That's why the girls' 200 free relay made it because of their time at district,"
Morse said. "Even though they got DQed at regionals, their time was still
The 200 free relay team of Susan Moore, Catherine Minjarez, Betsy Lujan
and Kelsey Holt earned the second team spot by placing 15th out
of the 24 teams listed, while the other two relays both were ranked 14
th out of 24 teams. Teddie Salcido, Rachelle Eisenberg, Holt and Moore
made up the 200 medley relay team, and Lujan, Jessica Minjarez, Holt and
Salcido were on the 400 freestyle relay team.
Individually, Salcido earned second team honors in the 500-yard freestyle,
and Eisenberg was a second team selection in the 100-yard breaststroke. Both
were ranked 15th overall in their events.
This weekend, Pecos' junior swimmers will have a meet at the Pecos High
School swimming pool, beginning at 10 a.m. Morse said Andrews, Monahans and
Lubbock All-Saints School would be the other teams entered in the meet, which
is for swimmers at the junior high and elementary school levels.
