Season tickets for ’06 Eagles going on sale
Season tickets for the Pecos Eagles 2006 home football games went on sale on Monday for 2005 season ticket holders, while new ticket buyers can purchase their tickets starting in two weeks for this year’s five home games.
Tickets can be purchased now through Aug. 25 at the Pecos-Barstow-Toyah ISD business office, 1302 S. Park St., by last year’s season ticket holders for this year’s games. Season tickets for the five games will then be available from Aug. 28 through Sept. 8, when Pecos plays their first home game, against Andrews. Tickets are $5 per game, and $25 for the full five-game package.
The Eagles’ other home games in 2006 are Sept. 15 against Kermit, Sept. 29 versus Anthony, Oct. 20 versus Clint and Nov. 3 versus Fort Stockton. The last three games are District 1-3A contests, and the Sept. 29 game against Anthony will be Pecos’ 2006 homecoming game.
Pecos opens its regular season with a neutral site game in Odessa against Alpine on Sept. 2. The Eagles’ other four road games this year are Sept. 22 at Denver City, Oct. 6 in Monahans, Oct. 27 at Fabens and Nov. 10 at Tornillo. The final three games are district contests.
Eagles improve at scrimmage prior to opener against Wink
Pecos Eagles volleyball coach Helen Kimbrough said she was happy with the way her team did in their only preseason scrimmage on Saturday, in Monahans against the host Loboes, Odessa High Bronchos and Odessa Permian Panthers.
“We did really good,” said Kimbrough, whose team opens its 2006 season on Tuesday night in Wink against the Wildcats, then faces Midland High on Friday morning in Monahans, to start off the annual Sandhills Tournament. “We started out a little shaky, but then they started playing better. I thought we improved in each game.”
Pecos started off with a 40-minute scrimmage against their District 2-3A rivals, then faced Odessa High and Permian later in the scrimmage. They also finished off the scrimmage with a different lineup of players from the ones who began against the Loboes Saturday morning.
“I moved up some key players, because we have to move a little bit faster,” she said. Ashley Orona, Claire Weinacht and Cheyenne Carrasco played on the varsity after starting off the scrimmage on the JV on Saturday, and Kimbrough said she’d keep that lineup for their match on Tuesday at Wink.
“The seniors really showed me a lot, and a lot of the girls also showed me what we need to work on,” she said. “We had some good passing, and some good defensive plays from our blockers. What we have to do now is work on our offense.
“We didn’t get to work on our offense this week. We only worked on bumping and passing,” Kimbrough said. “We’ll start doing more on Monday.”
Wink was one of the teams the Eagles lost to a year ago, during an 11-22 season. Pecos returns four starters from last year’s team that missed post-season for the second year in a row. The Eagles will be in the same four-team district they’ve been in for the past two seasons, matched up with Monahans, Fort Stockton and Presidio.
The Eagles also scrimmages on the freshman and JV levels on Saturday in Monahans, and those teams will also start their 2006 seasons on Tuesday in Wink. The 9th grade and JV matches are scheduled for a 4 p.m. start, while the varsity will begin play at 5 p.m.
The JV is also entered in the Sandhills Tournament this weekend, and will open with a 4 p.m. match against Midland Lee. The freshman division of the tournament has been moved to Labor Day weekend.
