Eagles face Tigers, Rebs in Midland

PECOS, Aug. 24, 1999 -- Three teams that would have liked to have done better this past weekend in their first tournaments of the season will get a chance to get a couple of wins tonight in Midland, when the Pecos Eagles take on the Lee Rebels and Snyder Tigers at Midland Lee High School.

Pecos will face Snyder first, starting about 5:45 p.m., and then will face the Rebels, at about 7 p.m. The Eagles' junior varsity team is also scheduled to face the Tigers and Rebels at those same times, while Pecos' ninth graders are home tonight, hosting Crane at 5 p.m.

The Eagles' rhythm was thrown off by Denver City's Jennifer Boyd, whose serves they had trouble handling in the semifinals of the Monahans Sandhills Tournament. Pecos lost to the Mustangs, who in turn were beaten in the finals by El Paso Americas, the team the Eagles swept in pool round play the previous morning.

"Our girls have got to learn when you run into a team that gives you competition you've got to learn to adjust when that happens," said Eagles' coach Becky Granado, whose team did come back to beat district rival Clint, 15-4, 15-9, in the third place game, as the Lions had problems both hitting and receiving serves.

Like Pecos, Lee also came away with the third place trophy this past Saturday, at the Ector County ISD Tournament. The Rebels went through their pool undefeated but lost to eventual tournament champion San Angelo Lake View in the semifinals, before beating Big Spring, 15-5, 15-13 for third place. Snyder didn't fare as well, placing second to Abilene Cooper in their pool at the Bev Ball Classic in Abilene and ending up in fifth place in the tournament.

Last season, the Eagles were swept by Snyder and Lee during a stretch that saw them drop seven of 10 matches before bouncing back to win 13 of their final 15 matches of the season, with the last loss to eventual Class 4A state champion Dumas in the playoffs.

Following this evening's action, the Eagles will get to play their only home matches over the first five weeks of the season, when they host the 14th Annual Pecos Cantaloupe Classic Volleyball Tournament. Freshmen play will begin Thursday, with the varsity and JV teams starting on Friday. The varsity has El Paso Parkland, Greenwood and Wink as their scheduled pool round opponents.
