Opening times set for Pecos' softball squad
Pool round games and the first round game for Pecos' 12 and under girls
softball team have been set for this weekend, at the West Texas All-Star
Tournament at the Freddie Ezell (MUGS) Softball Complex at Ulmer Park in
The 12 and under squad will play two pool round games on Friday, and then
will open tournament bracket play on Saturday, according to coach Debbie
"We'll play at 3:15 p.m. against Sonora and at 6:15 p.m. against San
Angelo Lake View," Garcia said. The pool games will be warm-ups for the
opening round contest in the actual tournament, when the 12 and under team
faces Midland Blue in an 11:30 a.m. match-up on Saturday.
Garcia said last week that the 12 and under girls placed second last
month in a smaller tournament in Alpine, but one that featured several area
teams that will be in the Midland tourney, including Monahans and Fort Stockton.
Pecos' team is made up of players from the two 12-and-under teams that were
part of the summer recreation league, which finished up play last Thursday.
Pecos was also supposed to have a team competing in the 14-and-under
division at Midland this weekend, but Garcia said that group did not have
enough players to field a full squad. "Some of those girls will be playing
with a Fort Stockton team," in the Midland tournament, she added.
Pecos will be one of 68 teams competing in the tournament, which officially
begins with opening ceremonies at noon on Friday.
Registration on Friday for new tumbling class
Jeremy Ray with Texas Tumbling will be at the Reeves County Community
Sports and Recreation Department on Friday afternoon to sign up boys and
girls age 3 and up for power tumbling and trampoline classes, to be held
locally at the old Pecos High School gym.
The class will be one of two Ray is holding, with the other to take place
at the Monahans Boys & Girls Club. The cost of the class is $25 per
month for each child.
Ray, who conducted a tumbling demonstration and class in Pecos earlier
this year, will be at the recreation department office at the old PHS gym
to sign up boys and girls from 3 until 6 p.m. on Friday.
