Chavez, Terry capture medals at TAFF meet

Two of three Pecos athletes who competed in The Games of Texas over the weekend came away with medals from the Texas Amateur Athletic Federation's annual summer sports event.

Alexis Chavez placed third in the high jump in the Pee Wee Division, while Rashad Terry took second in the Senior Division of the 200 meter dash and was fourth in the 100 meters in the same division.

The Pee Wee Division is for 7-8 year olds, and Chavez cleared 2-foot-8 in the high jump, while placing 16th in the long jump, according to her mother, and Pecos Eagles girls track coach Roxie Chavez.

Chavez and Phillip Williams were the two members of the Pecos-Barstow-Toyah summer track program to earn berths at the TAAF state meet. Williams ran in the 11-12 division, and the Eagles' coach said, "Phillip finished fifth in his heat in the 100. He did real good considering the competition. The competition over there was so much better, because most of those kids do track all year long."

Terry competed in the Senior Division, one level up from where he ran at the area competition in Crane last month, and took second in the 200 meters with a 21.94 time, while placing fourth in the 100 with a 11.12 time. He was one-tenth of a second in back of winner Raven Hayward of Tyler, while Jordan Johnson of Friendship took the 200 with a time of 21.57.
