Rains plague finish of Beau Jack tournament
The team of Tim Windham and Mark Burgen came away with first place in the Championship Flight of a rain-shortened Beau Jack Memorial Day Tournament on Sunday, at the Reeves County Golf Course.
Showers that formed over Pecos during the afternoon forced the top three flights of the tournament to be cut to nine holes on Sunday, and Windham and Burgen shot a 31 to win by two strokes over Cory Theil and Michael Parker, who finished with a 62-33-95. Marcus Lopez and George Baeza placed third with a 65-33-98 score.
The top three teams had to go back on the course after the second rain delay to finish the final two holes on their front nine, while others in the flight, along with the First and Second Flight teams, were on the back nine when play was halted. The rains also forced the tournament to go to scorecard playoffs in the First Flight and Second Flight to decide a pair of tiebreakers.
David Bradley and Zach Winkler won the First Flight, shooting a 66-35-101, while Steve Valenzuela and Chad Smith won a scorecard playoff for second, over Sammy Jimenez and Albert Bosman. Valenzuela and Smith had a 66-36-102 while Jimenez and Bozeman shot a 67-35-102.
In the Second Flight, Ken Winkles and Ismael Juarez won with a 70-36-106 score, while Keith and Chad Windham were second, with a 71-36-107 total. Mike and Nicholas Harrison won third on a scorecard playoff, shooting a 71-37-108 to beat out Jim Espy and David Donnell, who had a 73-35-108.
The three morning flights were able to get all 18 holes in on Sunday, with first and third places in two of the flights also decided on scorecard playoffs.
In the Third Flight, Tom Aguilar and Dan Maldonado were the winners, with a 71-70-141 score. Robert Hollander and Skip Beckett were next, with a 72-72-144 score, while Armando Granado and Ronnie Ontiveros placed third, with a 72-74-146 score, beating out Robert Martinez and Chris Rivera, who shot a 71-75-146.
Starkey Warren and Beau Tate Hendrick won the Fourth Flight on a scorecard playoff over Don Alligood and Oscar Ramirez. Warren and Hendrick shot a 76-74-150 and Alligood and Ramirez had a 79-71-150. Chris and Nick Granado also won on the scorecard, shooting a 76-75-151 to beat out Raul Molina and Danny Hernandez Jr., who also had a 76-75-151.
In the Fifth Flight, the winners were Jesse Anchondo and Ricky Herrera, who shot an 81-80-161 to win a scorecard playoff over Rudy Nunez and Manuel Gonzales, who had an 82-79-161. Third place went to Jerry and John Parent, who shot an 82-80-162.
P-B-T sets dates, sign-ups for summer athletic events
Registration begins this week for the Pecos-Barstow-Toyah ISD summer recreation programs, which are scheduled to begin next week and run either through the end of June or late July.
Swimming and golf have scheduled registration for this week, while tennis and track sign-ups will be next week, when the sessions get underway. There will be no sign-ups needed for the summer volleyball, basketball and weight training programs, which also will start up next week.
Summer learn-to-swim class sign-ups began on Tuesday from 4-6 p.m. at the Pecos High School gym foyer and continue on Wednesday and Thursday. However, coach Terri Morse said unlike past years, this year’s classes will probably take place at the Athletic Pool in Maxey Park, due to ongoing work to repair damage caused by a sinkhole beneath the pool.
“It’s going to take longer than they thought, so we’ll probably have to do the swimming lessons out at the pool in the park,” she said.
The first swimming lesson session is scheduled from June 2-12, while the second session will run from June 16 through June 26. Classes will be held Monday through Thursday, with a registration cost of $30 per child.
The time schedule for the lesson will have both 3- and 4-year-olds going daily from 11:15 to 11:50 a.m. Lessons for 5-year-olds will be in two time periods, from 9:35 to 10:20 a.m. and from 10:25 to 11:10 a.m. Boys and girls listed as Level 1, 2, 3 and 4 swimmers will have their lessons from 8:45 to 9:30, 9:35 to 10:20 and 10:25 to 11:10 a.m., while those in Levels 5 and 6 will have classes from 8:45 to 9:30 a.m.
Fees for the other summer program are $5 per student in each family, with the fee for one sport covering all other sports. Students participating in more than one sport can show their payment receipt after their first registration.
Sign-ups for the summer golf program are this Thursday afternoon from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Reeves County Golf Course. Golf classes will begin on Monday, June 2 at the golf course, with Tina Doan as the instructor.
