Summer tennis attracts 42 to first session

Summer tennis is underway for Pecos-Barstow-Toyah ISD students, and coach Mike Ortiz said a tennis tournament would be held the Fourth of July weekend in conjunction with the 2003 West of the Pecos Rodeo.

Tennis is one of several P-B-T summer sports programs to get underway this week. Swimming, basketball, golf, track and weight lifting also started up, while summer volleyball will be getting underway next week.

Eagles' tennis coach Mike Ortiz said. "We had 32 here (Monday) and about 10 more today, so we should have about 42 out right now.

"Most of them are the younger ones," he added. "We've got eight from kindergarten and first grade, 12 from second and third grade and 10 from fourth through sixth grades. The rest are my older kids."

The younger groups were working on basic skills during Tuesday's session, which will continue until next Friday, June 13. The second session of summer tennis will run from June 16-27, and Ortiz said his older players will be able to compete in the West of the Pecos Rodeo Tennis Tournament, which will be on July 4-5 at the Pecos High School tennis courts.

"I don't have everything set yet, but it will be part of the Black-Gold summer tennis," he said. The Black-Gold Tournaments, formerly the Highway 80 Tournaments, are held throughout the Permian Basin during the summer months.
