Eagles swim in dual meet at Stockton
The Pecos Eagles swim team will get in their final pre-Thanksgiving races
today in Fort Stockton, when they face the Panthers for the second time this
season in a dual meet.
Diving is scheduled to begin about 4:30 p.m., followed by the swimming
events at 6 p.m., Eagles' coach Terri Morse said.
Pecos' girls placed first and the boys second this past weekend at the
Monahans Invitational, their final regular meet before the holiday break.
Last month in Pecos, the girls won their meet with Fort Stockton by a 133-25
margin, while the boys' defeated the Panthers, 111-58.
Several Eagle swimmers competed in races other than their usual ones that
day, and Morse said she would do that again this evening.
"They'll swim different races just to get times for them," she said. "Some
people will swim in their same events, but most will swim in others.
"The girls will swim in more relays, because in dual meets you're limited
in the number you can put in each event, so I'll have more girls than events,
and I'll have to swim them in the relays," Morse said. "I'll see if anybody
is ready to move up from a `C' relay to a `B' relay and from a `B' to an
On the boys' side, three who will get a chance to compete in their regular
event are divers Michae Juarez, Andrew Grant and Miguel Estrada. They were
unable to dive in Monahans because of problems with the board at the Loboes'
pool, and ended up limited to swimming in two events plus relays.
"The three boys will all be diving today," Morse said, while on the girls'
side, "Michelle (Wein) has been sick all week, so she won't dive. With her
being out two days, she probably wouldn't feel like it."
Pecos won all 22 events held against the Panthers in last month's dual
meet, though Fort Stockton's 200 yard freestyle relay team in the boys division
has finished ahead of the Eagles' team three times at invitational meets
Today's meet is actually the first of two straight trips to Fort Stockton
for the Eagles. Their next meet will be back at the Panthers' pool, on Dec.
6-7 for the Coker Invitational. Pecos has one more meet, on Dec. 13-14, at
Seminole before the Christmas holiday break.
