Eagles to face challenge from Carlsbad,

Lubbock, Big Spring at swim meet

The Pecos Eagles will get to see a couple of Class 5A teams and a pair from New Mexico this weekend, when they host the Pecos Invitational on Friday and Saturday at the Pecos High School Natatorium.

Diving will start at 6 p.m. Friday and the swimming finals will begin on Saturday at 11 a.m. for what will be Pecos' fourth and final home meet of the 2001-2002 season. They've hosted El Paso Montwood, Monahans and Fort Stockton in dual meets so far, while their only other invitational was two weeks ago in Big Spring.

Pecos' girls have swept all four of their meets this season, while the boys won their duals over the Loboes and Panthers, lost to Montwood and finished second at Big Spring to the host Steers.

For this weekend, Eagles' coach Terri Morse said, "For the girls it should be between us and Carlsbad, and for the boys, it should be us, Carlsbad and Big Spring."

Carlsbad's girls come in seeded first in six of the nine individual events, along with one of the three relays. Lubbock High also has some girls who are among the top seeds and will be seeded No. 1 in both the 200 medley and 200 freestyle relays, while the Eagles will rely on their depth to score some extra points on Saturday.

On the boys' side, the Cavemen will be seeded first in five individual events; while the Eagles will have only one swimmer seeded No. 1, Will Oglesby in the 100-yard butterfly. Meanwhile, Lubbock High and Carlsbad will go into the 200 and 400-yard freestyle races seeded 1-2, while the Eagles will be seeded second to the Westerners in the 200-medley relay.

Morse allowed her swimmers to change events last Thursday for their dual meet against Fort Stockton, but said for Saturday's races "I'll be putting them probably where they can score the most points, which is pretty much where they would do well, anyway.

"I pretty much went back to what we had. I did pull Max (Key) out of one individual event to put him in the 400 relay in order to get us more points. It will also allow us to have two relays in that event, but that's knowing I'm not going to do it later on."

Aside from Carlsbad, Big Spring and Lubbock High, other teams that will be sending their main teams are Hobbs, Andrews, Monahans, Fort Stockton, Seminole, Midland Christian and Odessa, while Lubbock Monterrey, Midland Lee, Midland High and Midland Trinity will be sending partial teams to the meet.
