Junior high golfers improve in Andrews

Return to top
PECOS, May 5 -- The Pecos Eagles' junior high golf teams managed to cut
their scores a bit on Saturday at the area golf tournament at Andrews.
But both teams still were behind the leaders in the third round of play.

Pecos' girls shot a 266 over nine holes on Saturday, while the boys had
a 400 for 18 holes of play. The host Mustangs finished first in both
divisions, with the girls winning with a 202 score and the boys taking
first with a 312 total.

Overall, however, the total was better than their first two round
average, in which the Eagles' shot a 540 over 18 holes.

"We struggling, that's all I can say," girls coach Mary Evans said
following Saturday's round. The Eagles were seventh on the day, as Fort
Stockton (211), Monahans (219), Fort Stockton `B' (239), Andrews `B'
(244), Andrews `C' (250) and Monahans `B' (253) placed ahead of Pecos.

Kermit failed to field enough golfers for a full team, while Andrews `D'
shot a 285 on the day.

The two returning junior high golfers from last year, Cindy Mauldin and
Sarah Flores, shot 61 and 65 to lead the `A' team. Candace Hillard shot
a 66, Tabitha Akins shot a 74 and Brandi Bradley had a 76 on the day for
the other `A' scores.

The Eagles were one player short of fielding a `B' team. Cassie Foster
shot a 62, Ashley Canon a 73 and Sandi Belles had a 78 for the girls'
other scores.

Pecos' boys were seventh on the day, behind Andrews, Fort Stockton
(329), Monahans (350), Andrews `B' and Monahans `B' (371) and Fort
Stockton `B' 390. Kermit `A' shot a 402, Kermit `B' shot a 472 and the
Eagles' `B' team shot a 514.

The boys also improved on their combined first two round total of 836,
though the `B' team's score was slightly higher than what they had shot
over the first 36 holes at Kermit and Monahans.

"We lost a lot of golf balls (in the water). It's a tough course," said
coach Kim Anderson. "But Cortney Freeman shot an 87 and Ty (Edwards)
shot a 93. They're both good golfers, and I expect them to be on the JV
next year."

Along with Freeman and Edwards, Jae Ewing had a 106, Chris Friar a 114
and Trent Riley a 116 for Pecos.

The `B' team was led by John Canon's 114, followed by Freddy Caballero
with a 126, Randall Reynolds with a 132 and Jason Baker shot a 142.

Round four of the tournament is scheduled for this Saturday, starting at
8:30 a.m. at the Reeves County Golf Course, while the tournament's April
26 round that was rained out in Fort Stockton may be made up on May 13,
Anderson said.

Chiefs win, Panthers fall from playoffs

Return to top
PECOS, May 5 -- Shutouts were the order of the day in both bi-district
round playoff series over the weekend, in which the San Angelo Lake View
Chiefs came up with a best-of-three playoff victory, while the Fort
Stockton Panthers lost in three games.

Lake View used shutouts by Sterlin Gilbert and Tommy Stubblefield
around a shutout loss to El Paso Burges' Jaime Flores to win their
series. Gilbert scored a 2-0 win Friday at Kokernot Field in Alpine,
Flores came back to post a 5-0 win and Stubblefield won by an 11-0
score, as Lake View scored six times in the first inning and added five
more in the second to end the season of Burges, the District 3-4A
runner-up with a 17-10 record.

The Chiefs will now take on District 1-4A champion Canyon Randall in
the area round of the Class 4A playoffs. Strangely -- especially for an
area round playoff game -- both teams will come into this weekend's
series with losing records. San Angelo is 13-14 while Randall is 15-16.

Fort Stockton ended it's year with an 11-16 mark, despite one-hitting
Ysleta in the final game. James Matchett took the loss in the 2-0
defeat, after Steven Cordero shutout the Indians in the second game,

In the only game in which a losing team scored, the Panthers fell to
the Indians in the opener, 3-2. Nathan Reeves was the losing pitcher for
Fort Stockton.

District 4-4A champion Andrews drew a first round bye, but also drew a
tougher area game than Lake View. The 22-2 Mustangs will face Frenship
in the area round. Andrews downed Frenship to win the Roswell Tournament
in late March, by a 5-4 score.

Frenship finished second to Plainview in District 2-4A. The Tigers won
a one-game playoff over Dumas, 7-0.
