Eagle football, volleyball teams beginning workouts
Practice gets underway on Monday for Pecos' varsity volleyball and football
teams for the fall 2002 season.
Unlike recent years, both squads will have two weeks of workouts before
their first scrimmage games. The girls volleyball teams will scrimmage at
home on Aug. 16, and in Monahans on Aug. 17 before opening their 2002 season
on Aug. 20 with a pair of matches in Odessa against Odessa High and Alpine.
The boys will hold their first scrimmage on Aug. 17 at home against El
Paso Riverside, then go to Van Horn on Aug. 23 for scrimmages against former
District 2-4A rival Fabens and Van Horn. Pecos' first regular season game
will be on Sept. 6 in Alpine against the Bucks.
New head football coach Fred Carter said the Eagles would begin two-a-days
for varsity, junior varsity and freshman teams at 7 a.m. on Monday, and then
come back for an evening practice at 7 p.m. Assistant coach Elias Payan said
two-a-days will only be held the first week of workouts, due to teacher in-service
beginning on Aug. 12.
Coach Becky Granado said the two-a-days for the volleyball teams will
be split up next week. Junior and senior players will practice in the mornings
from 8 to 10 a.m., and in the evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. Sophomore volleyball
players will workout from 10 a.m. until 12 noon, and then from 3 to 5 p.m.
in the afternoon, while freshman will have two afternoon workouts, from 12
noon until 2 p.m. and then from 5 through 7 p.m.
All volleyball and football players will have to have their physical forms
filled out by a doctor and returned to their coaches before they can begin
