Pecos hosting San Elizario to close out 2-4A first half

The District 2-4A playoff race could become a little clearer tonight, or it could be completely jumbled at the halfway points of the season.

The Pecos Eagles would prefer the former, and they can assure themselves of no worse than a tie for second place at the end of the first half of district play with a home court win over the San Elizario Eagles.

Pecos faces San Eli in freshmen, junior varsity and varsity matches, starting at 4:30, 5:30 and 7 p.m. at the new Pecos High School gym. The Eagles come into the game with a 2-2 record in district, tied for second with Clint and Fabens after their 11-15, 15-8, 15-12 loss to first place El Paso Mountain View on Saturday, while San Elizario fell into a tie for fifth with Canutillo, as they lost to the Golden Eagles, 15-6, 15-13.

With Clint playing at Canutillo and Fabens facing Mountain View, the Eagles could be anywhere from alone in second place to a five-way tie for second after play ends tonight. Pecos has won the first match in all four of their district games so far, but struggled after that. They pulled out wins over Fabens and Canutillo, but lost on the road in three games both to Mountain View and Clint.

San Eli beat Clint a week ago after opening with losses to Fabens and Mountain View, but have always given the Eagles trouble in Pecos, and handed them one of their two losses in 2-4A play last season.

Pecos has played for the last week without front line players Mindi Harrison and Tiana Terry. Assistant coach Veronica Valenzuela said Harrison was suited up on Saturday, but did not play, while Terry may not play until this Saturday, when the Eagles host Clint to begin the second half of their district schedule.

Eagle netters get easy win over Fabens

The Pecos Eagles tennis team had an easy time with the Fabens Wildcats on Saturday, in their District 2-4A opener at the Pecos High School tennis courts, and the girls had about an easy a time as possible, as they didn't even have to take the court to come up with a sweep of the Wildcats.

Fabens, which brought only three girls to their match with Pecos at Monahans back on Sept. 8, had no girls playing on Saturday, giving the Eagles a sweep of all nine singles and doubles matches, along with the lone mixed doubles match of the day. Meanwhile, the boys did get in all of their matches, winning eight of nine on the varsity level along with one JV match for an overall 19-1 win over Fabens.

Coach Mike Ortiz said his girls were a little disappointed at first, having shown up for the matches only to find no one to play, but added, "After I told them they were undefeated in district, they were happier."

On the boys' side, the Eagles swept all seven singles matches, six in straight sets, while Michael Orona won a 3-6, 6-4, 6-7 match from Fabens' Justin Garay. Trent Graham, Bobby Sotelo, Stephen Lamb and Jay Dannelley won both their singles and doubles matches from the Wildcats on Saturday, with Fabens' lone victory coming at No. 3 doubles.

Saturday's match will be the final one at home for Pecos this season. They were scheduled to host the District 2-4A tournament on Oct. 20, but that's been moved to Monahans because work is scheduled to begin on redoing the foundation at the Pecos High School tennis courts. Before then, the Eagles will have four road matches, beginning today in Fort Stockton, and continuing with their next 2-4A match on Saturday, at El Paso Mountain View. The Lobos lost to Clint in their district dual meet opener on Saturday.
