Eagles seeking to move ahead of Rangerettes

The Pecos Eagles and Greenwood Rangerettes both have a chance to stake a claim to the second of three District 4-3A playoff berths tonight, when the teams close out the first half of the district schedule at the Pecos High School gym.

The Eagles and Rangerettes, tied for second in the 4-3A standings, will play starting about 6:30 p.m., following the freshman and junior varsity contests at 5:30 p.m. Both teams are 2-1 in district, a game in back of first place Monahans, who won in Pecos last Tuesday and face Greenwood this coming Saturday. Both teams also are currently two games up on Fort Stockton and Presidio in the 4-3A standings.

Last season, Greenwood swept both their district matches against Pecos and placed second behind Monahans in the final standings, while the Eagles were able to hold off Fort Stockton for third place. The Eagles come into tonight's game off their 23-25, 25-20, 25-19, 25-19 victory at Fort Stockton and are 11-14 for the season, while the Rangerettes downed Presidio, 25-11, 25-11, 25-15 and are 14-18 overall.

"It's the same scenario as last year," said Eagles' coach Becky Granado. "I don't think Greenwood is as strong as last year - as far as hitting we're pretty much the same. We're just going to have to go out there and play some ball."

Pecos was able to bounce back from their loss to Monahans on Saturday, despite having to change up their line-up against Fort Stockton due to the loss of middle blocker Brittany Rodriguez. Danielle Garcia had 10 kills, Leslie Rodriguez eight and Stephanie Herrera seven in the win, while Pecos also was able to take advantage of some unforced errors by the Prowlers.

The Rangerettes didn't have the height advantage over the Eagles that Monahans did last season, but were far more disciplined than Pecos in sweeping their district matches. Greenwood has four starters back from a year ago, including all-district setter Karah Northcutt and middle hitters/blocker Jaymie Flowers, who also was a first-team pick on the 4-3A squad a year ago.

Pecos runners finish 9th, 20th in Ozona divisions

Pecos Eagles' cross-country runner Jennifer Martinez placed eighth in the girls division of the Ozona Invitational, while Joshua Cobos finished 20th in the boys division on Saturday.

Martinez was one of two girls entered in the meet for Pecos, while three other Eagle runners competed on the boys' side along with Cobos. Martinez ran the two miles course in 13:24, while Jasmine Rodriguez placed 96th, with a 17:29 time.

"She improved on her time, even where she placed," coach Rudy Jurado said of Rodriguez. "Hopefully we can continue to knock down our times. That's all I can ask of the runners, to keep knocking down their times."

Cobos finished the three-mile race with a 19:56 time, while Gonzalo Reyna was 26th with a 20:21 time, Pete Juarez placed 60th with a 23:36 time and Luis Nunez was 61st, with a 23:47 time.

"We're going to Odessa this Saturday, and I should be taking a full boys team for the first time this year," Jurado said. "People have either been missing or are in other sports. My girls had a full team, but I lost two, so I'll only have three individual runners."

Jurado added that he hopes to see some of the Eagles' District 4-3A rivals before the district cross-country meet on Oct. 27 in Monahans. "Hopefully we'll see some of our competition at Odessa. So far we haven't seen anyone except for Greenwood," he said.

The Eagles have one more cross country meet between Odessa and the district competition, in two weeks at Midland.
