Pecos hosting meet's diving for Monahans
The Pecos Eagles swim team will get to see some of their future
regional opponents this weekend, while Pecos' divers will get a chance
for an extra performance at home when the Eagles compete in the
The diving competition will be held in Pecos on Friday at 5 p.m.,
due to problems with the diving board at the Monahans High School pool,
while the swimming events will begin in Monahans on Saturday at 11 a.m.
Pecos swept both the boys and girls division titles at the Pecos
Invitational this past weekend, and will be facing most of their
District 3-4A rivals again this weekend. But coach Terri Morse said the
field of non-district schools would be different than a week ago.
"There will be quite a few El Paso schools there," she said. "El
Paso Americus, Socorro, Andress, Chapin and Bowie will be there, along
with San Angelo Central and Hobbs."
The last three El Paso schools are in Class 4A, and will compete
against the Eagles at the Region I-4A meet in Lubbock in February. As
for the Lubbock schools that swam in Pecos last week, Morse said, "This
weekend is the TISCA meet, so they're all going to that. They brought
the ones who didn't qualify for TISCA last week."
Pecos had most of their swimmers and divers available a week ago,
but will be a little shorthanded at least during the early part of
"There are a couple I've changed, but basically everybody is going
to be the same," Morse said. "Teddie (Salcido) will swim the backstroke
instead of the 200, because Ashley Horsburgh in not going to be there
because of the FFA event. Kyle (Winkles) will swim the 200 (freestyle)
instead of the 100 and Alonzo (Garcia) is in the 100 instead of the 50,
but he's been sick.
"The relays will be a little different, because I'll have kids
coming in late from that FFA thing," she added.
The meet is the final one for Pecos before the Thanksgiving break.
Pecos' next meet will be the Coker Relays in Fort Stockton the first
week of December.
