Junior high girls get 5th at Andrews

PECOS, May 9, 2000 -- The Pecos Eagles' junior high girls golf team closed out their spring tournament schedule this past Saturday with a fifth place finish in tournament play at Andrews.

The host Mustangs won their own tournament with a 189 score, and were followed by Fort Stockton, Monahans, Snyder and Pecos, which shot a 231 over nine holes of play.

Coach Kim Calhoun said her girls did well after adjusting to the tougher course and the addition of Snyder to the Andrews tournament field.

"They did a good job staying away from the water," Calhoun said. "For the most part, they did real well, because the course was very challenging for them.."

Sarah McKinney led Pecos with a 54 score, one stroke ahead of Stephanie Herrera. Jenny Canon shot a 60, Jena Cranfill had a 62 and Ashley Hoesburgh shot a 73 for the other Pecos team scores, while the Eagles' lone medallist golfer, Susan Bradley, shot a 75.

"Sarah McKinney did a really good job staying up front with Andrews' girls, and gave them good competition," Calhoun said. "Stephanie Herrera also did a good job on a tough course."

She added that McKinney placed seventh in the overall medallist standings for the tournament, while Cranfill slipped back a bit, after shooting a 49 at Fort Stockton the week before.

"Hopefully all the girls will stay involved and will be taking summer golf," Calhoun added. Times and dates for summer golf and the other Pecos-Barstow-Toyah summer recreation programs will be announced later this week, following the monthly school board meeting.

Pecos hosting tennis carnival on Thursday

PECOS, May 9, 2000 -- A tennis carnival will be held this Thursday for students in kindergarten through eighth grade, at the Pecos High School tennis courts.

The 90-minute event is designed to increase interest in tennis among elementary and junior high school students, and will begin at 6:30 p.m., Pecos High School tennis coach Bernadette Ornelas said.

The carnival will involve various tennis games, and door prizes will be given out at the end of the event, Ornelas said. This is the third year the carnival has been held at the PHS tennis courts in conjunction with the U.S. Tennis Association, and Ornelas said she was hoping to beat the turnout of between 150 and 175 students for the other USTA Carnivals.
