Pecos getting look at rivals before district

District 4-3A volleyball play is still a week off for the Pecos Eagles, but the run-up to the start of district play begins this evening for the Eagles, who play the first of three matches this week against district rivals, when they travel to Fort Stockton to take on the Prowlers.

The match is one of two this evening for Pecos, which will also take on the Crane Golden Cranes at the new Fort Stockton High School gym. The matches are scheduled to start at 4:30, though Eagles' coach Becky Granado said she didn't know which team would be playing the Prowlers first.

"She didn't fax me any information," Granado said, while adding that since Crane has a slightly longer trip to Fort Stockton, "We'll probably have the second game. We'll play Crane first and then turn around and play Fort Stockton."

The Eagles started turning their season around a year ago with a pre-district win at home against Fort Stockton. They advanced to the playoffs as a member of District 2-4A despite a 4-15 start. Tonight, a win against the Cranes or Prowlers would allow Pecos to surpass last year's pre-district win mark, even though the Eagles are struggling again with a 4-10 record this season.

One of those wins was over Fort Stockton in the Pecos Cantaloupe Classic, 15-2, 15-10. Granado said she hasn't seen Crane play in two years, but the Cranes are currently tied for 10th in the Class 2A state volleyball rankings.

The Eagles struggled at the start of their matches against two other 2A teams at home last week, but were able to score two game wins over Van Horn and Marfa. Going into today's matches, Granado said, "We looked pretty good in practice yesterday. I just hope we can get a transition from practice to the game."

After today, the Eagles will be at home on Saturday to face two more district rivals, Kermit and Presidio, then face those same two teams next week in their 4-3A openers.
