Vasquez signs with Cisco JC

Former Pecos resident Angelique Vasquez, daughter of Pecos High School graduate, Milissa Vasquez, signed a national letter of intent to accept full volleyball scholarship from Cisco Junior College.

Both Angelique and Odessa High School classmate Schamaine Hawkins traveled to Cisco to try out for the team last month. They went with hopes of impressing the Lady Wranglers' head coach. They did, which led to their acceptance to the school. Cisco's head coach Susan Moore told Angelique that she was among the best setters they'd seen.

Angelique's signing was more the culmination of efforts spent in a lifetime of playing the sport. "I've been playing volleyball since I was in second or third grade," she said. She will now realize her dream of going to college and playing volleyball.

Angelique comes from a family of volleyball players. Her great aunt Nora Geron was head coach of the Eagles volleyball team for many years. Her aunt Patty Hall started her coaching career in Pecos and is now the head volleyball coach for the Monahans lady Lobos. Angelique recalls, "I don't remember there being any pressure for me to play, but I was wanting to follow in my family's footsteps."

Angelique is the daughter of Erasmo Acosta of Waupun, Wisconsin and the granddaughter of George and Lois Vasquez and Erasmo and Susie Acosta.
