Swimmers repeat as Regional Champs

Staff Writer

PECOS, Feb. 3, 2003 -There were a couple of surprises and only some mild disappointments on the boys' side for the Pecos Eagles over the weekend, at the Region I-4A Swimming and Diving Championships in Lubbock. For the Eagle girls, there were a few more disappointments than surprises in the preliminaries on Friday, but in the end, both Pecos teams ended up repeating as regional champions, and even some of the swimmers who failed to win their events in Saturday's finals ended up earning at-large berths in the Class 4A State Championships in Austin on Feb. 14-15.

Just as they did at the District 3-4A meet the previous weekend, Pecos' boys more than doubled the score of their nearest rival, winning the regional title by a 112-55 score over Andrews. On the girls' side, things were a little closer this weekend, but the Eagles still came out on top by a comfortable margin, winning 104-70 over the Mustangs.

The boys saw three of their district winners come up short at regionals early in Saturday's meet, though coach Terri Morse said, "We didn't expect to win those at regionals." But Pecos made up for it with upset wins later on in the finals.

The 200-yard freestyle relay team of Gary Garcia, Daniel Quintana, Matt Elliott and Max Key edged Andrews by .19 second to win the automatic berth at the state meet, after placing behind Andrews and Monahans in previous races at district and regionals. Pecos had a 1:33.67 time to Andrews' 1:33.86. Garcia then edged out Big Spring's Mark Sheedy and Josh Pike to win the 100-yard backstroke, with a 59.47 time to 59.57 for Sheedy and 59.88 for Pike.

Earlier, Quintana was beaten out in the 200 yard freestyle by Pampa's
