Eagles opening tournament after rough Tuesday losses

The Pecos Eagles volleyball team took a couple of steps backwards Tuesday night, and saw their season record drop to 0-6 with a pair of losses to the Odessa Permian Panthers and Lubbock Estacado Matadors at the Permian High School gym.

Pecos opened with a 15-10, 15-10 loss to Estacado, then were routed by Permian 15-3, 15-1. Coach Becky Granado had said the Eagles had defeated Permian in a scrimmage at Monahans on Aug. 16, and the Panthers had routed the Matadors before the Eagles' match with Estacado, so Granado found little to be happy with from either match.

"We just did not do anything," Granado said. "I think in the first game we had 27 mistakes just on digs.

"I think they watched Permian run all over then and got overconfident before they got out there. We didn't cover and didn't move around out there," she said.

The matches with Permian turned out even worse as the Panthers made short work of the Eagles

"There was just no desire out there," she said. "We didn't even make mental mistakes. We just weren't into it from the start."

"I told them until somebody steps it up and becomes the lead and takes control, we won't be able to do anything," Granado said.

The losses left Pecos with an 0-6 record for the second season in a row going into the Pecos Cantaloupe Classic Tournament, which starts today for the freshman Eagles and Friday for the varsity and junior varsity teams.

The ninth graders will face Alpine at 4:30 p.m. today, Monahans at 5:30 and Odessa High at 6:30 p.m. On Friday, the varsity will face Marfa at 10:30 a.m., Fabens at 1 p.m. Anthony at 3:30 p.m. and Fort Hancock at 6 p.m., while the JV will take on Marfa, Permian and Andrews. The Marfa game will be in the new gym, starting at 8 a.m. Friday, and they'll face Permian at 1:50 p.m. and Andrews at 6 p.m., both in the old gym.

The JV lost to Permian on Tuesday, 15-4, 15-12, while beating Estacado, 16-18, 15-10, 15-10. The freshmen won both of their matches on Tuesday, downing Permian 5-15, 15-9, 15-10, and Estacado, 15-10, 15-2.
