Junior high girls fourth in Tourney
PECOS, May 18,1999 --Outside of the Pampa Harvester girls not being there,
the order of finish for the final round of the area's junior high golf
tournament was pretty much the same as at last month's Region I-4A high
school tournament in San Angelo -- Snyder, Andrews, Pecos.
The Eagles' seventh and eighth grade girls completed their four-round
tournament on Saturday at the Ward County Golf Course in Monahans by shooting
221 for the final nine holes to place fourth, behind Snyder (203), and
Andrews `A' (207) and `B' teams (214).
Coach Kim Calhoun said she was missing some girls due to softball, and
as a result, only had one team entered at Monahans. Dena Dutchover and
Brandi North had the Eagles' low rounds for the day with 51s, and placed
10th and 13th overall in the tournament. Lauren Martinez was fourth overall
after shooting a 53 on Saturday, while Sara McKinney shot a 60 and Kristian
Aguilar shot a 61 and wound up 11th in the final standings.
"Dena improved four strokes, Brandi improved five strokes and Sara improved
four strokes," Calhoun said. Jenna Cranfill shot a 69 and she at the most
improvement. She cut 11 strokes, which was her goal."
Cranfill was the Eagles' lone medalist golfer on the day.
Snyder did not have an overall four round score, since they did not
play in the tournament the previous week at Kermit. Andrews finished with
a 36-hole total of 811, while Andrews `B' shot an 894 overall and Pecos
had a 915.
Fort Stockton and Monahans were the other two teams to play all four
rounds. The Prowlers shot a 228 at Monahans and finished at 927, while
the host Loboes finished with 1002 total after a round of 246 on their
Eagles set site, times for playoffs
PECOS, May 18, 1999 -- Because the Midland Lee Rebels and the El Paso Socorro
Bulldogs don't mind traveling long distances this weekend, the Pecos Eagles
will get to play their Region I-4A quarterfinal series at the site they
wanted, Alpine's Kokernot Field.
The Eagles will face the El Paso Riverside Rangers in a best of-three
regional quarterfinal series, starting at 5 p.m. Friday at Kokernot Field.
Game 2 will be at noon on Saturday, with a third game, if needed, starting
about 2:30 p.m.
Eagles' coach Bubba Williams finalized the site Monday afternoon, after
Lee and Socorro opted to play a home-and-home series in their Class 5A
regional quarterfinal matchup. The Rebels and Bulldogs had first call on
the Alpine field, which could have forced the Eagles and Rangers to move
their playoff game to Carlsbad or Hobbs, N.M.
The Eagles will go into Friday's game off a sweep of Plainview in the
area round of the Class 4A playoffs. Pecos scored a 10-4 win in Friday's
opener, then edged the Bulldogs on Saturday, 2-1.
The Eagles had drawn a first round bye for winning the District 2-4A
title, while Riverside finished second to El Paso Ysleta in District 1-4A,
but have rolled through their four playoff games, routing Pecos' district
rival, Fabens, by 13-2 and 16-1 scores, then ousting District 4-4A champ
Canyon Randall this past weekend by 6-3 and 3-0 scores.
The winner of the series will face either Wichita Falls Rider or Weatherford
on Memorial Day weekend.
