Pecos basketball looking for first win

PECOS, Dec. 30, 1999 - The Pecos Eagle boys will take two short trips Friday and Saturday, while Pecos' girls will be making one long trip today in hopes of closing out 1999 with a victory, when the girls face the Sweetwater Mustangs and the boys go to Fort Stockton to take on Kermit in tournament play.

Pecos' girls are 0-10 on the season while the boys are 0-11 after losses at Fort Stockton _ the girls by a 75-51 score to the Prowlers back on Dec. 17 and the boys on Tuesday in Fort Stockton, by a 79-56 margin.

Coach Brian Williams had all but one of his varsity girls working out Wednesday, and he's hoping that one, junior post Philly Fobbs, will make a short trip Thursday to the game.

"She's in Abilene right now," Williams said. Fobbs has averaged 15.3 points in the Eagles last three games, and provides Pecos with their only height inside. "She said she was going to practice (during Christmas break), but we'll have to see."

Sweetwater came to Pecos last season and defeated the Eagles, and again are favored to win the District 5-4A title in basketball this season.

Pecos' boys will begin play in the Fort Stockton New Year's Tournament at 4:30 p.m. Friday against Kermit, and will face either McCamey or the host Panthers in the second round. The championship semifinal will be in the high school gym at 11:30 a.m. and the consolation semifinal at 11 a.m. in the junior high gym.

Pecos had no height to match up against Fort Stockton's Luke Groth in Tuesday's loss. The 6-foot-6 post scored 30 points, though Eagles post Hector Rodriguez did put in 17 in a losing effort.

"I'm happy because there's been vast improvement in the past four or five games," said Eagles' coach Tino Acosta. "I'm proud of the kids because even though we haven't won, they haven't gotten shell shocked. If we keep improving the way we have, we'll be all right.

Monahans takes on Rankin and Fort Stockton's junior varsity faces Lydia Patterson in Friday's other openers. The seventh place game will be in the junior high gym at 3 p.m., Saturday, while the third place, consolation and championship games are set for 3:30, 5 and 6:30 p.m. in the Fort Stockton High School gym.

Pecos Enterprise will be running a Political Calendar starting January 4th.

Candidates are listed on first come first serve basis.
