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
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.
