Eagles open Tournament with San Eli

PECOS, March 14, 2001 - The Pecos Eagles weren't the only team avenging an early season loss in a big way this week. Their District 2-4A rivals San Elizario did the same thing, going into their match-up with Pecos in the first round of the Alpine Tournament on Thursday.

The Eagles, 7-6 losers to Alpine on March 1, routed the Bucks at home on Monday by a 17-4 score. The win evened their season record at 5-5 going into their first round game against 5-6 San Elizario, which avenged a 12-4 loss last week to El Paso Parkland by routing the Matadors on Tuesday, 16-1.

Mike Tapia and Jose T. Herrera both went 2-for-3 in the win, Enrique Adame picked up the victory with a five-hitter and also was 2-for-3 at the plate, while Bo Solis was 3-for-4 for the district's other Eagle squad.

Solis no-hit El Paso Bowie last Friday by a 9-0 score and figures to be the pitcher the Eagles see in Thursday's opener. Meanwhile, Eagles' coach Bubba Williams said Capi Magana, 1-1, would probably start on the mound for the Eagles. Magana three-hit Monahans in his first start, then was hit hard last Thursday by Abilene Wylie in a 15-4 loss before coming back to strike out 10 batters in 5 1/3 innings of relief the following day in a 6-3 loss to Merkel.

Parkland will also be entered in the Alpine Tournament, facing Wall in their opener, while another of the Eagles' 2-4A rivals, Fabens, takes on Sonora in their first round game, following the Pecos-San Elizario match-up. The Wildcats are picked to win the district title this season, and come into the tournament off a 13-3 win on Saturday over El Paso Burges.

If Pecos wins its opener over San Elizario, they'll face either Alpine's purple team or Van Horn at 12:30 p.m. on Friday. A loss would send them into an 8 a.m. game on Friday against the loser of the Alpine-Van Horn contest.

Eagles blanked by Prowlers in final pre-district contest

PECOS, March 14, 2001 - The Pecos Eagle girls' softball team ran into problems on offense again Saturday, as they lost to the Fort Stockton Prowlers in their final full pre-district game.

The Eagles were blanked by Fort Stockton, 7-0, and while they did come back after that to score a 9-8 victory over the Sonora Broncos, coach Tammy Walls said "we mostly played our JV there. We only used our varsity players at pitcher and catcher."

Stephanie Herrera pitched against the Broncos and Evelyn Galindo caught, after Alexa Marquez and Rebecca Wein handled the pitching and catching chores against Fort Stockton.

"Hitting the ball still is our Achilles heel, but we're working on it this week, so we're going to be better," Walls said. Galindo and Ashley Salcido had hits against Fort Stockton.

The Eagles play their first home game in over a month on Friday, when they open District 2-4A play with a 4 p.m. game against Clint. The Lions, who have finished second to the Eagles in the 2-4A standings the past two seasons, come into district off a 10-5 victory on Tuesday over El Paso Parkland.
