Pecos sending trio to 'Games' near Ft. Worth

Three Pecos track and field competitors will be heading to the Fort Worth area this weekend for the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation's "Games of Texas," the summer athletic competition that brings together athletes from across the state.

Two of the three participated in the Pecos-Barstow-Toyah ISD summer track program, while the other was a member of the Pecos Eagles' varsity track team this past season.

Alexis Chavez will compete in the high jump and long jump events in the Pee Wee Division, Phillip Williams will be entered in the 100 meter dash in the Midget Division, and Rashad Terry will compete in the 100 and 200 meter dashes in the Senior Division at this weekend's meet.

Coaches and athletes were scheduled to pick up their forms this evening, and the track events were to be held at Mustang-Panther Stadium in the Grapevine-Colleyville area. Opening ceremonies were set for 7:30 p.m. on Friday at Pennington Stadium in Bedford. Those three towns, along with Euless, Hurst and North Richland Hills, are hosting the various "Games of Texas" events between today and Sunday.

The three Pecos athletes qualified for the TAAF last month during area competition held in Crane. Coach Roxie Chavez said her daughter qualified in the 7-8 year old division for elementary school-aged athletes, while Williams, who'll be going into junior high this year, will compete in the 11-12 year old age group.

Dan Cook, who has worked with Terry over the summer, said that the Pecos Eagles junior was eligible to run in the Intermediate Division, but moved up to the Senior Division, which is for 17-18 year olds.

"Moving up will get him some experience running against better competition," Cook said.

Terry won the 100 meter dash in Crane with a 10.36 time and too the 200 meters with a 21.4 effort. Cook said those times would have him seeded second in the 100 meters at this weekend's state competition, while he'll go into the 200 meters seeded third.

Rec department starts sign-ups for leagues

The Reeves County Community Sports and Recreation Department has begun signing up boys and girls for its fall volleyball and flag football programs.

The volleyball program is open to children entering grades 3-6, while the flag football league is for boys and girls ages 5 through 7. Registration cost for either program is $10 per player, and forms can be picked up at the recreation department office in the old Pecos High School gym during regular office hours.

Returned registration forms must be accompanied by a birth certificate and signatures of both parents. Deadline for signing up for volleyball is Aug. 23, while flag football sign-ups continue through Aug. 29. For further information, call the recreation department office at 447-9776.
