Warbirds short of bouts at Gloves

Staff Writer

PECOS, February 16, 2001 - The West Texas Golden Gloves is scheduled for this weekend, and for the Pecos-Barstow Warbirds, they have more fighters than fights on Saturday's schedule.
The tournament will be a one-day event at the old Midland Lions' Club building starting at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, and Warbirds' manager Roy Juarez said he'll have five boxers competing, while a couple of others won't fight because they were unable to find matches.
Two of his fighters, German Rodriguez and Antonio Montanez, will face each other in the Junior Olympic Division, while Aaron Mendoza and Jacob Gomez will also compete as Junior Olympic fighters and Peter Juarez will be entered in the Open Division of the tournament for the first time.
"They're the only ones who got matched up out of nine," Juarez said. "I had Trish Ramirez fighting for me, but she got sick this week and won't be fighting in the tournament."
Open Division winners will advance to the State Golden Gloves Tournament in Fort Worth next month. Roy Juarez said he has one other fighter in the Open Division, Gilbert Rodriguez, who is in the 194-pound weight class. "We did not get a fight for his, but we will still take him to the state tournament in Fort Worth," where he will be the area's entry in the 194-pound division.
"The same goes with Peter. If he loses at 149 pounds, he will go to state at 157 pounds," said Juarez.
Fred Martin again will take the team to the state tournament, and Juarez said, "From what I've heard Fred say, he'll be taking five Open Class fighters to Fort Worth."
Roy Juarez said he thought Mendoza and Peter Juarez would do well in their fights Saturday. "German and Antonio, this is going to be their first fight, so they still look kind of weak, and Jacob's going to fight a guy who's pretty good, so I don't know how that is going to turn out."
Juarez said part of the reason for the lack of fights is the Lubbock area now has its own Golden Gloves regional tournament, instead of being part of the Permian Basin Tournament. Along with the Warbirds other teams entered on Saturday include the host Twin City Tigers, along with teams from San Angelo, Snyder, Lamesa and Fort Stockton.

Eagles' spring sports teams have busy weekend on tap

PECOS, February 16, 2001 - The Pecos Eagle tennis and boys golf teams are in Fort Stockton today, Pecos' junior varsity girls golfers were in Andrews on Thursday and the girls softball team is there today, while the Eagles' baseball teams will be at home today and Saturday for their final preseason scrimmages, as the spring sports season gets underway.
The tennis team is playing in their first tournament of the Spring 2001 season today and Saturday in Fort Stockton, while it's the second tournament for Pecos' boys golf team, after their season-opening match last week at Big Spring. The tennis team has played two dual meets so far, losing to Monahans and beating Greenwood, while the boys will try to improve on their 23rd place finish last Saturday.
Pecos' JV girls placed second on Thursday in a seven team field at Andrews, shooting a 421 to end up 30 strokes behind the host Mustangs. Dena Dutchover tied for fourth in the medallist race with a round of 100, Kristen Aguilar shot a 102, Sarah McKinney a 109, Kattie Davis a 110 and Jena Cranfill had a 118. The Eagles individual medallist golfer, Bianca Mendoza, shot a 108.
"The girls played hard, and they're disappointed in their game. But they all feel they can shoot lower and that's their goal," said coach Tina Hendrick, who plans to take her varsity and JV teams to Fort Stockton next week.
The girls' softball team began play in sub-freezing temperatures at 9 a.m. today in Andrews against Frenship, the first of a series of one-hour pool round games for the Eagles today. Pecos opened its season on Tuesday with a 26-1 win over Crane.
The Eagles' junior varsity baseball team will be at home today against Odessa High, in their lone preseason scrimmage, while the varsity will host Midland Greenwood at 1 p.m. on Saturday. It's the third scrimmage for the varsity but just the first for the JV, since the Eagles were short of players until the end of baseball season on Tuesday.
"They haven't been out all week, but this will give us a chance to look at all the kids," said Eagles' coach Bubba Williams. Pecos opens its season a week from today against Monahans.
