Track squads in San Angelo, Kermit

PECOS, March 22, 2001 - The Pecos Eagles track teams end a two-week break Friday and Saturday, with the boys team set to see a lot of new faces at the San Angelo Relays, while the girls will see most of the other area schools in Kermit, at the Permian Basin Relays.

The San Angelo Relays will begin Friday afternoon with running preliminaries and some field event finals, with the other field events and the running finals set for Saturday afternoon. The Permian Basin Relays will be a one-day event in Kermit, with the prelims and field events in the morning and the running finals starting later Saturday afternoon.

A lack of teams forced the Eagles to cancel last weekend's West of the Pecos Relays. The boys' last meet was the West Texas Relays in Odessa on Mar. 10, while the girls' come off the Wildcat Relays in Wink two weeks ago.

Pecos will be one of a dozen teams in the San Angelo Relays Division II field, including former district rivals Snyder and San Angelo Lake View, and other Region I-4A teams like Lubbock Estacado and Mineral Wells. Because San Angelo is a two-day meet, coach Jerry Parent said several of his runners who are currently ineligible cannot compete, because the current three-week period doesn't end until after Friday's preliminaries have begun.

The Eagles' highest finish at Odessa was by Daniel Terrazas, who placed second in the 400 meter dash, though his times so far this season are still off his best times in 2000. Jason Gonzales just missed a medal at the West Texas Relays, finishing fourth in the 110 meter high hurdles, and both were members of the Eagles' 1600 meter relay team that placed fifth.

The girls finished second to Wink at the Wildcats relays, scoring over 120 points after scoring just below 30 at their first two meets of the season. Saturday's Permian Basin Relays will feature a tougher field than at Wink, including the host Yellowjackets, Monahans at Fort Stockton, coach Lily Talamantez said.

The girls won all three relays at Wink, while Tiana Terry also picked up a gold medal for the Eagles in the 100-meter dash. And because the meet is on Saturday, the girls will have a chance to get back several ineligible team members.

"If they're OK (passing), they'll all be eligible," Talamantez said.

This weekend's meets are the next-to-last for Pecos before the District 2-4A meet at Canutillo on April 6-7. The Eagles will go to the Golden Crane Relays in Crane next week.
