Swimmers hold second meet against Ft. Stockton

The Pecos Eagles swim team will hold its second dual meet of the season against the Fort Stockton Panthers, and the first of two dual meets this week, this evening, when they host Fort Stockton at the Pecos High School Natatorium.

Coach Terri Morse said swimming events will begin at 6 p.m., following the diving competition at 4:30 p.m.

Pecos will be one diver short again this week, after senior Michael Juarez suffered a facial cut in an altercation outside Saragosa Hall two weeks ago. "He just got his stitches out, but he's going to be out one more week," Morse said. "I'm hoping he can dive in the Pecos Invitational (on Nov. 14)."

Morse said Juarez may be able to swim next week even if he can't dive, while on the girls' side, the Eagles will be missing either one or two swimmers tonight.

"Susan (Moore) is not swimming tonight. She's sick and Teddie (Salcido) has been sick, but I think she is going to swim, so it may just be Susan tonight and on Saturday," Morse said, when the Eagles will take on Midland High and Midland Lee.

The Eagles were without Juarez and both Will and Matthew Oglesby last Saturday in Big Spring, and placed third in the Big Spring Invitational. The girls, meanwhile, took first place overall in their division.

Three weeks ago in Fort Stockton, Pecos' boys defeated the Panthers by a 116-61 margin, while the Eagle girls' won by a 117-23 score over Fort Stockton. Several Pecos swimmers competed in different events than their usual ones that night, and Morse said she would probably move her swimmers around again this evening.

"Saturday we'll have everybody in their regular events. We'll have to to try and beat Midland," Morse said.

Eagles close out season, look towards 2004

The Greenwood Rangers are looking towards next week, while the Pecos Eagles are looking towards next year in football, as the teams come into the final regular season game at Eagle Stadium.

How well the Eagles are also able to look towards Friday night, while looking at some players who will be back for the 2004 season, will probably determine how well Pecos does against Greenwood when the teams meet at 7:30 p.m.

The Rangers are 6-2 on the season. They were idle last week, but clinched a playoff spot thanks to Pecos' 24-7 loss at Fort Stockton. They're also 2-1 in District 4-3A, while the Eagles are 3-6 after their fifth straight loss and are 0-3 in district play.

First-year head coach Patrick Willis is going through some of the same participation problems past Eagle coaches have had to endure, leading up to Friday's season-ending game. Several players quit the team after Pecos' current losing streak began, and Willis said, "Monday we only had 17 kids out here. That means about half of them were absent."

"Tuesday we had mostly everybody here and we had no problems," he said, but added that Wednesday's workout was sluggish, and the problem of missing players was not limited to this week alone.

"We have had problems with people missing practices all year long. When you miss two days and only really have three days to work out you have a problem putting things in," he said. "We've had kids who are either sick or are late for class and are in OCS (Lamar). That translates in gam
