Terrazas wins two top honors during banquet

Staff Writer

Pecos Eagles senior Daniel Terrazas picked up two of the  five main awards Thursday night, during the annual Pecos High School  All-Sports Banquet at the new Pecos High School gym.

Terrazas picked up both the Doc Lunday Sportsmanship Award and the Craig Woods Memorial Award, while Trent Riley won the Joe Bob Kelton Award, Alexa Marquez received the Joe Shoemaker Award and Becky Dominguez won the Norma Mata Fighting Heart Award.

Terrazas ran for over 1,100 yards during the Eagles' 2000 football season and won the District 2-4A championship in the 400-meter dash for the third year in row to win the Craig Woods Award, which goes to the outstanding football and track athlete during the past year.

Riley's award also for football, where he earned all-district honors as a linebacker during the past season, and for academic achievement; while Marquez' was honored for her participation in he most sports during her four years at Pecos High School. Dominguez received her award for her efforts during the Eagles' 2000 volleyball season.

Also receiving separate awards on Thursday were three Pecos Eagle senior swimmers, Randall Reynolds, Jo Ann Wein and Grant Holland, who earned Academic All-America honors for the 2000-2001 season. Other all-district certificates and other team honors were handed out by Pecos coaches during the three-hour event.

Before the awards were given out, guest speaker Dr. Mary Ann Weinacht, Chairman of the Education Department at Sul Ross State University, talked about the support Pecos teams received this year and the results during the 2000-2001 school year.

"This has been a great year for the Eagles and their followers," said Weinacht, who added she has followed Pecos teams for the past 34 years and whose son, Bill, was the Eagles' quarterback as well as a regional qualifier in the pole vault 20 years ago.

"I told coach (Gary) Grubbs I always see something new at a football game, and that night (in Fort Stockton) I saw my first overtime game," she said, while talking about how Pecos overcame three overtime losses this season to reach the playoffs.

Pecos-Barstow-Toyah ISD Athletic Director Bubba Williams told the non-senior athletes in the crowd they should strive to improve on this season's efforts.

"This is an opportunity for all of you to go a step farther next year, but you've got to want to do it," said Williams.

Along with swimming, volleyball, track and football, other teams honored during the banquet were basketball, tennis, golf, power lifting, cross country, rodeo, softball and baseball.
