Pecos' girls fall to Lee
The Spring sports season gets underway in full for the first
time today, with most of the Pecos Eagles' teams competing
in events in Fort Stockton or the Midland-Odessa areas.
The Eagle girls' softball team already was in Midland on
Thursday, where they dropped their first game at the West
Texas Classic to Midland Lee's junior varsity in a Division
II game. They'll be back there today, as will Pecos' junior
varsity baseball team and the Eagle boys' golf team, as they
compete in tournament play.
Going down to Fort Stockton will be the Eagle girls' golf
team, for the two-day Blue Ribbon Invitational, and the boys
and girls track squads, who open their 1999 seasons at the
Comanche Relays. Meanwhile, Pecos' tennis team will be going
almost, but not quite to Midland today and Saturday, when
they compete in the Odessa Invitational Tournament.
The softball team had hoped to climb over the .500 mark for
the first time ever, after getting their first-ever victory
at home a week ago over Lamesa. Instead, Pecos suffered its
second shutout loss of the season and will try and rebound
today in a 10:30 a.m. game against Andrews' junior varsity,
which lost on Thursday to Lubbock High by a 10-2 score.
The boys golf team will be sending one squad to Midland
today, while the girls will have both their varsity and JV
golfers competing in Fort Stockton. Both teams were last in
action two week ago at the Big Spring Invitational, where
Pecos' girls had their second straight fifth place finish
and the boys placed 19th overall in their division.
Coach Kim Anderson said he'd be taking Casey Love, Lee
Lyles, Jason Salcido, John Granado and Erik Machuca to the
Midland Invitational, while coach Tina Hendricks will get to
play all of her girls today and Saturday in Fort Stockton.
The Eagles' tennis team will see a tougher field in Odessa
this weekend, at the ECISD Bob Clark Invitational, but will
also have more players to work with than two weeks ago at
the El Paso Burges Invitational. Coach Bernadette Ornelas'
squad had to play minus their top six boys seeds that
weekend and wound up seventh out of the eight teams at the
Play in the golf and tennis tournaments opened at 8 a.m.
today, while the track teams will start out in the Comanche
Relays at 2:30 p.m. Running preliminaries and some field
event finals will take place today, while the remaining
field events will be held Saturday morning and the running
finals will start about 12:15 p.m. on Saturday.
Former district rivals Fort Stockton, San Angelo Lake View
and Monahans are entered in the Eagles' division, along with
Crane, Alpine and Presidio.
The only group playing at home this weekend is the Eagles'
baseball team, which opens its 1999 season with a
doubleheader against Monahans today at 5 and 7:30 p.m.
Pecos' freshmen will face the Loboes in their season opener
at 7 p.m. tonight in Monahans, while the Eagles' JV competes
in the Midland Junior Varsity Baseball Tournament.
