Camp Verde High School wrestlers Skyler Pike and Hayden Uhler were recently named to the Arizona Republic’s All-Arizona Wrestling Team for 2017.

Only one wrestler from each weight class in the entire state is selected, making the honor that much more valuable. Additionally, Uhler was a finalist for the Wrestler of the Year award, which was presented at the publication’s second annual Sports Awards on April 30.

Camp Verde High School baseball senior Easton Braden recently signed to continue playing at Presentation College.

Braden, a First Team All-Central Region selection this season and Second Team pick as a junior, helped anchor a Cowboys defense from the catcher’s position with a fielding percentage of .988.

No. 4 Camp Verde High School’s softball team saw its 11-game winning streak and bid for a second consecutive berth to a state championship game end at the hands of No. 1 Bourgade Catholic High School, 8-2, Saturday, May 6.

The Cowboys [16-2, 9-1 Central] matched up with an undefeated Golden Eagles team that was more than clinical defensively. On the other hand, Camp Verde errors led to a five-run deficit after five innings.

The No. 4 Camp Verde High School softball team advanced to the semifinals of the Arizona Interscholastic Association 2A State Championship with a 6-2 win over No. 5 Santa Cruz Valley High School on Friday, May 5, played at Phoenix’s Rose Mofford Softball Complex.

A four-run fifth inning lifted the Cowboys [16-1, 9-1 Central] to a 6-0 lead. Freshman Jacy Finley practically did it all for her team, batting three for three with four RBI and tossing nine strikeouts in the pitcher’s circle.

More than a decade of playing together came down to one final home game for the Camp Verde High School baseball team’s senior class, on April 25.
