Girls JH volleyball clinic scheduled next week
Spaces are still open for incoming seventh and eighth grade girls for next week’s junior high volleyball clinic at the Pecos High School gym, but all spaces have been filled for the clinic for high school students, set for next month at the PHS gym.
Coach Debbie Garcia said the junior high clinic will be next Monday through Friday from 2 to 5 p.m. at the PHS gym, and has a registration fee of $20 per player. Garcia, and other Pecos Eagle coaches and high school players will work with the junior high girls, while coach Rick Garcia of Sul Ross State University will handle the high school clinic, scheduled for July 11-13
Garcia said due to the lack of early registrations, the clinic for the high school players was cut from two sessions to one, and as a result, all the spaces were filled when late sign-ups came in. She also said the 9-12 grade sessions, which are scheduled for 9 a.m. to 12 noon, may be moved to the afternoon to avoid conflict with summer TAKS testing.
Garcia, who served as Eagles’ varsity volleyball coach last season, is handling the summer volleyball gym after moving over to the position of varsity girls basketball coach, replacing Lisa Lowery. Pecos-Barstow-Toyah ISD athletic director Chris Henson is still looking for a new varsity volleyball coach for the 2006 season. Garcia took the job just prior to the start of August workouts last year when Pecos was unable to find a replacement for Becky Granado, who resigned at the end of the 2004-05 school year.
“We’ve got about 30 kids in here all the time during evenings,” Garcia said of the summer volleyball program, while Pecos also has five teams of girls ranging from grades 6-12 participating in the Odessa summer volleyball leagues.
