Eagles to see new district rivals early, often

The Pecos Eagles will have a little different look to their pre-district schedule, while reversing the sites of last year's 3-4A matches, during the 2003 season of volleyball play.

With this being Pecos' second year as a member of District 4-3A, their schedule will be in the same order as in 2002, with only the sites of the games in the first and second rounds reversed. The Eagles will open their 4-3A schedule on Sept. 23 at home against Kermit and close out the season with an Oct. 28 match at Midland Greenwood.

Pecos finished third this past season in the District 4-3A standings, behind Greenwood at district and Region I-3A champion Monahans. The Loboettes will again be favored to win the district volleyball title this season, and will play in Pecos on Tuesday, Sept. 30, then host the Eagles on Saturday Oct. 18.

Pecos' Tuesday schedule will have both the junior varsity and varsity matches starting at 4:30 p.m. while the varsity matches begin at about 6 p.m. Starting times on Saturdays will be at 2, 3 and 4 p.m.

The Eagles will have two other trips to Monahans besides their district match, for scrimmage play on Aug. 16, and a week later for the Sandhills Tournament. Those are the same as a year ago, but some other dates on the pre-district schedule for the Eagles have changed, including their traditional opener against Alpine and Odessa High.

Pecos will still face Alpine to open the season, but instead of playing the Bronchos as well in a dual meet, they'll take on the Van Horn Eagles and the Bucks to start off the season, on Aug. 19 at the Williams Center in Fort Stockton. Pecos will play both teams once more in dual meets, facing Alpine and Midland Christian on the Bucks' home court on Sept. 2 and Van Horn and El Paso Americus on Sept. 13 in Van Horn.

The Eagles have three other dual meets and two other tournaments on the schedule. They'll go to Midland to face Midland Christian and Andrews on Aug. 25, and will face three of their 4-3A rivals - Fort Stockton, Kermit and Presidio - along with the Crane Golden Cranes in dual meets in Fort Stockton and Pecos the week before district play begins.

The Eagles will host their own Cantaloupe Classic Volleyball Tournament on Aug. 28-30 at the Pecos High School gym, and will go to the Seminole Invitational on Sept. 5-6. Pecos' JV and freshman teams will also compete in the Monahans and Pecos Tournaments, while the JV will have tournament play in Midland the weekend of the Seminole Invitational.

The Crockett Junior High volleyball teams are scheduled to begin their 2003 seasons on Sept. 4, with matches at home against Van Horn. Monahans, Presidio, Fort Stockton, Kermit, Crane and Midland Trinity are the other teams on the junior high's purple and gold and black and white schedules for the seventh and eighth grade squads.
