Warbirds host benefit smoker Saturday

PECOS, May 16, 2000 -- A boxing smoker to benefit the Pecos-Barstow Warbirds Boxing Team will be held this Saturday at the Riverside Ballroom on East Third Street, starting at 8 p.m.

It's the first boxing tournament of the year in Pecos, and is designed to help raise money for the Warbirds' out of town travel expenses.

The smoker will feature bouts between law enforcement officers from around the area, including one bout that will match Arnulfo "Killer" Rivas of the Pecos Police Department against Jesse "The Snake" Franco, who works for the Trans-Pecos Drug Task Force. Some of the other local law enforcement boxers will be Paul Deishler and Oscar Machuca from the police department and Trent Davis from the Reeves County Sheriff- s Department.

There will also be a Martial Arts School from Odessa whose members will be doing, demonstrations throughout the fights.

This event is for all ages and there will be food and beverages sold.

The Warbirds have no other sources of income except through community donations and turnout for boxing matches like this. Warrbirds' manager Fred Martin and trainer Roy Juarez are in charge of the boxing club and have done an excellent job with these young people, said Deishler. "We would like to see a large crowd attend this event and support these young people," he said.

Anyone needing more information about the tournament or who wants to make a donation can contact Deishler at the Police Department (445-4911) or Fred Martin at 447-3600.

Chabarria gets academic all-state berth

PECOS, May 16, 2000 -- Pecos Eagles' senior Amy Chabarria was selected to the Academic All-State Volleyball Team for Class 4A by the Texas Girls' Coaches Association.

Chabarria, who served as setter for the Eagles during the past two seasons, was the only District 2-4A player selected to the squad, which is based both on on-court achievement and academic records.

Chabarria was a second team selection on the All-District 2-4A volleyball team this year and earned honorable mention as a junior in 1998. Pecos won the district title that year and placed second this past fall, losing to eventual Class 4A state champions Dumas and Hereford in the area round of the Class 4A playoffs both times.
