Rec dept. plans classes for summer youth golf, yoga
The Reeves County Community Sports and Recreation Department is signing up boys and girls for the next two weeks for a summer golf program, and will also be starting a yoga class for adults and older teens in the near future.
The summer golf class is for boys and girls ages 3-18, and will run from July 10 through Aug. 3. Former Pecos High School and current University of Texas-San Antonio golfer Shelly Martinez will be the instructor for the four-week session, which will have a registration deadline of Friday, July 6.
Entry fee is $10 per player, and parents must provide a birth certificate and have both parental signatures on the returned application form.
The yoga class would be held three times a week from 7 to 8 p.m. and would be open to anyone age 16 or older.
For further information on either the yoga class or on the summer golf class, call the RCCRD office during summer hours, at 447-9776.
All-Stars start area tourneys this weekend
District 37 Tournament play will start next weekend for five Pecos baseball teams, with three opening play on Friday and two on Saturday.
The three Friday openers include Pecos’ 11-12 year old Little League All-Stars, who are hosting six other teams at Chano Prieto Field. They’ll face Winkler County (Kermit) in their opening game at 8 p.m. and will play their next game on Sunday, against either Monahans or Greenwood in the tournament’s winner’s bracket, also at 8 p.m., or in an elimination game against one of those teams starting at 6 p.m.The other four teams will be out-of-town for their tournaments, with the 9-10 year old All-Stars and the 10-11 year old teams traveling to Fort Stockton, while the 13-14 year old Junior League All-Stars travel to Alpine and the 15-16 year old Senior Leagues traveling to Kermit for their District 37 Tournament games.
The 9-10 year old division has the largest number of area teams, eight, and Pecos will open with a 6 p.m. game on Friday, June 29 against Greenwood. The winner of that game advances to a 6 p.m. game on Sunday in the double-elimination tournament, and will take on Monahans or Martin County (Stanton), while the losers among those teams will face each other starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday.
The 10-11 year old bracket only has three teams entered, and will begin with Pecos and Greenwood facing each other at 6 p.m. on Saturday in Fort Stockton. The winner will play at 6 p.m. on Monday against Monahans, while the loser won’t play again until Tuesday, when they’ll face the loser of Monday’s game, in a 7 p.m. start.
The Junior League Tournament will be at Alpine’s Kokernot Field and will have five teams entered. Pecos has an opening round bye and will take on the winner of Friday’s game between Monahans and Kermit, in a 5 p.m. game on Saturday. Big Bend (Alpine-Marfa) faces Fort Stockton in the other opening round game, and Pecos will face one of those teams at 7 p.m. on Tuesday if they win their opening game. A loss would drop the 13-14 year olds into an elimination game at 7 p.m. on the Fourth of July.
The 15-16 year old division is also small, with just three teams. Pecos will open at 7 p.m. on June 29 against Monahans, and the winner will face the host Kermit team at 7 p.m. on Sunday. The loser will be off until Monday, when they’ll play Sunday’s loser in a 7 p.m. start.
Pecos teams advanced to sectional play in two of the five divisions last year, winning the District 37 titles in the 11-12 year old and the 15-16 year old brackets.
