Eagles get 2nd place in El Paso

Return to top
PECOS, Mar. 4 -- The Pecos Eagles tennis team placed second over the
weekend in a seven-team tourament in El Paso, the first of two straight
weekend tournamernts for the Eagles out west.

The Eagles' No. 1 doubles team of David Zuniga and Jonathan Fuentes won
their division title on Saturday, while No. 4 seed Mark Marquez took
first in his division on Saturday.

"David and Jonathan had a real good tournament in doubles," coach J.R.
Torrez said. "On Friday, everybody really struggled. It was cold, and we
lost three or four singles matches we should have won.

"But Mark had a good win on Friday, and he played good in Saturday's
doubles," Torrez said. Marquez and Skyler Bechtel placed third as No. 3
seeds in doubles, as did the second-seed boys team of Tye Graham and
Jeff Lam.

Torrez had only four girls make the trip to El Paso, as grades cost him
two girls, while two others had other weekend committments. In that
group, No. 1 seed Nichi Dannelley and No. 3 seed Jennifer Fuentes both
placed fourth in their singles divisions on Friday, then were fourth in
the No. 1 seed in doubles on Saturday. Marisa Levario and Erin
Douminguez played in the No. 2 doubles division, and were fifth, after
both placed fifth at No. 2 and No. 4 singles on Friday.

Outside of Marquez on the boys' side in singles, Fuentes, Graham and
Lam took third in their backets, as No. 2, 3 and 6 seeds, while Bechtel
was fourth in the No. 5 seed division and Zuniga placed fifth, playing
among the No. 1 singles seeds.

Torrez said El Paso Irvin, El Paso Austin, El Paso Socorro, El Paso
Mountain View, Roswell and Roswell Goddard were the other teams in the
two day tournament.


The Eagles' season opened back in mid-February with a split of a pair
of matches in Monahans, against the host Loboes and Snyder Tigers.

Pecos edged Monahans by an 8-7 final score, while losing to the Tigers
by a 9-6 count.

Both Zuniga and Fuentes and Graham and Lam scored wins in both their
doubles matches on the day. Zuniga ad Fuentes scored singles wins
against Snyder, while Fuentes, Marquez, Graham, Bechtel and Lam all
posted singles wins against the Loboes.

Bechtel had Pecos' other victory over the Tigers, in singles play,
while the girls' lone win came from Vanessa Miranda and Teresa Minjarez
in doubles play against Snyder.

Pecos' JV girls fourth in Alpine golf

PECOS, Mar. 4 -- The Pecos Eagles' junior varsity girls golf team placed
fourth on Monday, in a five team tournament in Alpine.

Eagles' coach Tina Hendrick said the varsity teams from Alpine and
Sonora, and JV teams from Monahans and Fort Stockton made up the field
in the 18-hole tournament. The host Bucks won with a 375 score, while
Sonora was second, at 386. Fort Stockton's JV shot a 394, the Eagles
were at 424 and Monahans had a 441.

"The girls did real well. They had trouble putting, and the gulley
(which bisects the Alpine golf course) got them, but they never quit.

"Elvisa (Morales) was in the top 10 medalists, so she had a good day,"
Hendrick added. Morales shot an even 100 on the day, while Kristen Evans
had a 102, Amanda Hernandez a 107, Amanda Stickels a 115 and Candace
Roach had a 118 for the JV.

Pecos' varsity girls will be going to Andrews this week, not El Paso, as
stated in Monday's Enterprise. Their El Paso tournament is
March 14-15. The varsity boys, who played in Andrews this past weekend,
will be playing a two day tournament in San Angelo this Friday and
