Eagles facing Lions to open 2-4A softball

PECOS, March 16, 2001 - District 2-4A play opens for the Pecos Eagles at home this afternoon against the Clint Lions, the team they've edged out the past two seasons for the district title.

The Eagles, who've struggled to score runs this season, host the Lions, who've been in a lot of high-scoring games, at 4 p.m. at Martinez Field, with Pecos coming in with a 3-9 season record after a 7-0 loss last Saturday in Fort Stockton, while Clint comes in with a 6-5-1 record following their 10-5 victory on Tuesday over El Paso Parkland.

Two years ago, the Eagles beat out the Lions by a game to win the district title, as the teams split their regular season games but Pecos won thanks to a Clint loss to El Paso Mountain View. Last year it the Eagles who lost to Mountain View, but they were able to win the 2-4A championship by sweeping the Lions in their two district match-ups.

Pecos won at Clint last season, 8-1, then rallied for an 8-5 victory at home. Alexa Marquez pitched both games for the Eagles, and coach Tammy Walls said she would start again today, while Clint has gone with Neddie Almanza and Adrianna Coranado on the mound in games this season. Almanza picked up the victory last week in a 22-2 win over El Paso Bowie, while Michelle Tullius and Yvette Maldonado have been the team's leading hitters.

Pecos has been shut out in six of their losses, and Walls said she is looking to find ways to improve the team's hitting now that district is underway. "I might play Evelyn (Galindo) at second base and Neftali Salgado in right field. She's done a real good job hitting this week," Walls said on Wednesday.

The Eagles need to get off to a good start in 2-4A play, since three of their first four games are at home. Pecos goes to Fabens next Tuesday then returns home to face Canutillo and Mountain View in their next two games.

LL schedules tryouts, seeks team coach

PECOS, March 16, 2001 - The Pecos Little League will be holding tryouts on Saturday, beginning at the Pecos Senior League Field at Maxey Park.

Tryouts are being held at Maxey Park while renovations continue to Chano Preito Field on Walthall Street. A new irrigation system and tournament-approved light towers are being put in at the field, and work is scheduled to be completed in time for the start of the 2001 season, on March 31. The new lighting is needed in order for Pecos to host night games during tournament competition in July.

League president Lee Serrano said there will be 14 teams in the A, B and C divisions this season, but one more coach is still needed for the Diamondbacks team, Serrano said.

No date has been set as of yet for the start of the 2001 Pecos Senior League season.
