Eagle teams start tourney in Monahans

After getting used to the new "rally scoring" system for regular games on Tuesday, in their 2003 season opening volleyball matches, the Pecos Eagles will see how the new system works in pool round play on Friday, when the face the Lubbock Cooper Pirates and the Plainview Bulldogs at the Monahans Sandhills Tournament.

A total of 14 teams are entered in the varsity division, which gets underway Friday morning at the Jerry Larned Special Events Center and the Monahans High School gym. Pecos' matches on Friday are both at the high school, against Cooper at 1 p.m. and versus Plainview at 3 p.m.

Pecos' junior varsity and freshman teams also will be competing at Monahans this weekend, with the ninth graders opening pool round play this afternoon. They'll take on Andrews at 4:50 p.m., Fort Stockton at 5:40 p.m. and Alpine at 8:10 p.m. The freshman beat Fort Stockton and Alpine in their season openers on Tuesday.

The varsity Eagles split their two matches, downing Van Horn in four games while getting swept by Alpine in the new best-of-five scoring system, in which the winning team has to get 25 points, with all breaks now counting as points. That proved to be a major factor in both matches, as the Eagles took advantage of Van Horn's unforced errors and serving problems, while giving up easy points against the Bucks due to missed serves and bad service receptions.

The pool matches today won't be as noticeably different from past year's games, as teams will still have to get to 15 points to win. But both teams will now start at 0-0, where in the past the matches actually were only first-to-11 affairs, as both squads started with four points. The matches will also have a 20-point cap.

All of Pecos' District 4-3A rivals will be in the tournament, including the host Lady Loboes, who placed second to Lubbock Trinity last season and later went on to win the district and Region I-3A titles.

Pecos' JV will also open pool round play in its division on Friday. They'll take on Presidio at 10:30 a.m. and then face Lubbock Trinity in a 12:10 p.m. match. The JV defeated Van Horn and Alpine on Tuesday.

Pee Wee football registration,

volleyball sign-ups set to end

Friday is the final day for regular registration for the Pecos Eagles Pee Wee football league, while sign-ups end Saturday for the Reeves County Community Sports and Recreation Department's girls fall volleyball league.

Both leagues are open to players in grades 3-6. Registration for the volleyball league costs $10 per player, while Pee Wee football costs $20 per player. Late registration for football is $25 per player.

A football camp scheduled for this weekend has been canceled and will be replaced by a three-day series of conditioning workouts at Martinez Field. The drills will be on Sept. 2-4 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, sign-ups run through Aug. 29 for the youth flag football program, which is open to boys and girls ages 5-7. Entry fee is $10 per player.

Returned registration forms must be accompanied by a birth certificate and signatures of both parents for both football and volleyball registration. For further information, call the recreation department office at 447-9776.
