(AP) — Tucson infielder Bert Pena has been suspended without pay for the rest of the Pacific Coast League baseball season. Toros manager Bob Didier said Friday. "He's suspended. We have nothing else to say." said Didier, adding that the move was a joint decision between the Class AAA team and the parent Houston Astros and details were to be kept "within the family." Pena, a 27-year-old shortstop with seven years tenure with the Toros, said the problem started before Thursday night's game here against Phoenix when he questioned Didier's lineup. According to Pena. he was promised by Houston officials that he'd be Tucson's starting third baseman when he was sent down by the Astros in July. In the last two games, however. Didier had benched Pena and used Jim Pankovits — a .3-14 hitter — at third base. When Didier had Pena. a .221 hitler, starting at third on Thursday night, Pena questioned the previous lineup changes, was promptly pulled from the lineup again and then refused to play.

"We should have a pretty good team this year," he said. "1 am optimistic about the season." Anderson said he's had no difficulty picking up where Merrill left off. "It was just a matter of getting to know the players." he said. Some of the players he expects to have good seasons are Laura Roper and Rachel LaChappclle. "They are two excellent setters," Anderson said. Psyra Bivens and Michelle Williams should also contribute to the Cougar cause in District KM A East Zone. ' "I am impressed with how they have played this year." Anderson said. "We are going to be a much-improved team." HUFFMAN HARGRAVE While Huffman lost many of its players to graduation. Coach Karen Peddy sees her team to be in contention in District 20-3A. "People don't expect this team to be strong because we lost six starters." Peddy said. "On the whole, this team is going to be a defensive team. They are real good at scrapping and digging up the ball." Senior Tracy Gregory is one returning starter who Peddy hopes will help. Amy Erick is also back from last season. Seniors Kim Morris and Shannon Gardner should help on offense, while Julie Moore and April Strong should be lop defensive players on the team. "We are hoping for the best," Peddy said. CHANNELVIEW Having to fill the shoes of last season's top volleyball player in the state is the task Channelview Coach John Turner has ahead of him.

"But 1 think we have a couple of girls who can do it." He is looking to improve Chan- nclview's 24-6 record of last season. Six returning players and three returning starters are the foundation of the team. "We hope'to have a pretty good year." Turner said. "The girls had a great offseason and are looking strong. All that is lacking is some leadership." Turner looks for Helena Jones. Vicki Gonzalez and Susan Hyder to enjoy strong seasons. "If we get some leadership, we can probably repeat in the playoffs and go further. like to regional and state," Turner said.
