teams on Friday night.

good workouts before and during the holidays. Pecos' last pre-Christmas meet
is this Saturday in Seminole.

Eagles hunt first winat Permian
PECOS, Dec. 5, 2000 -- The Pecos Eagle girls basketball team will hope
going on the road does for them what it did for the Eagle boys, as
they try to get their first win of the season tonight against the Odessa
The Eagles and Panthers meet in Odessa starting about 7:30 p.m., with
Pecos trying to get win No. 1 after home losses last week to Monahans and
Presidio, the latest by a 68-62 score on Friday.
The Eagles had problems with ballhandling and defending against back door
passes in the first half, falling behind by as many as 15 points. They rallied
in the second half behind the shooting of guard Maricela Arenivas, who finished
with 27 points, but allowed Presidio too many rebound baskets and never got
closer than five points down the stretch.
Odessa Permian, meanwhile, is also struggling, though they're doing better
than a year ago, when they beat Pecos after dropping their first 10 games.
The Panthers are 2-7 right now, and will have the homecourt advantage this
evening, though the Eagles have already faced Permian once, during scrimmage
"We did better against Permian than against Monahans in the scrimmage,
but we never know what they're going to do in a real game," said Eagles coach
Veronica Valenzuela. "Their game is getting the ball into the post, because
they've got a couple of big girls, but defensively they were weaker than
Last season, Permian beat Pecos by a 73-48 score, in a game the Eagles
trailed by only a 31-27 score at halftime. Most of the Panther starters off
that team are gone, but one, Natasha Moore, was one of three Panthers in
double figures with 11 points.
Tonight's game is the first of four on the road for the Eagles this week.
They'll be at the Sandhills Tournament in Monahans starting on Thursday.
Pecos' boys, who lost their first three games of the season at home before
winning their road opener, are off tonight, and will also be in the Monahans
tournament this weekend.
