With a completely healthy and eligible squad for 2017, the Mingus Union High School softball team is gearing up for a big improvement from 2016.

The Marauders, who boast a wealth of experience and key additions to the lineup, are poised to do better than their 6-16 record from a year ago.

Just two weeks into practice and three until its first meet, the Mingus Union High School track and field team is taking things one step at a time.

Rather than looking ahead to how they want each athlete to perform, head coach Yancey DeVore is focused on consistent, day-to-day work in order to formulate a plan for them.

Much to head coach Andrea Meyer’s surprise, the Mingus Union High School girls tennis team is going above and beyond in order to have a successful 2017 season.

According to Meyer, the team has been doing drills and conditioning on its own before practice, and their attitude is always positive. More importantly, the team’s skill level is already at the same level as it was at the midpoint of the 2016 season.

Mingus Union High School’s most experienced wrestlers wrapped up their seasons at the 2017 Arizona Interscholastic Association Division III State Championships on Thursday and Friday, Feb. 9 and 10, at the Prescott Valley Event Center.

The middleweight grapplers have been the pick of the litter for the Marauders this season, and three of the four who qualified for State advanced to the medal round on Feb. 10, which includes the top six wrestlers.

The Mingus Union High School boys tennis team is gearing up for another season, looking to improve upon its 1-13 record from a year ago.

But with half of the team comprised of new players, and the other half gone due to graduation, head coach Larry Lineberry has secondary goals in mind as well.

Before the start of the Grand Canyon Region Tournament on Feb. 6, Mingus Union High School boys basketball coach Dave Beery instilled a bit of fear into his team in the form of a much-needed reminder.

A reminder that, despite the fact it had already picked up two wins against first-round opponent Bradshaw Mountain High School, the Marauders [14-19, 5-7 4A Grand Canyon] were not going to cruise to a third.

After falling to Lee Williams High School in its two previous meetings, the Mingus Union High School girls basketball team exacted its revenge at the Grand Canyon Region Tournament on Monday, Feb. 6.

The Marauders [8-12, 3-9 4A Grand Canyon] beat the Volunteers by a score of 40-38 in the first round of the tournament, played at Flagstaff High School.
