Mingus Union High School’s track and field team qualified seven individuals and four relay teams to the Arizona Interscholastic Association Division III State Championship, held on Friday and Saturday, May 5 and 6, at Mesa Community College.

The Marauders’ top finisher was sophomore Meg Babcock, who claimed second in the 800-meter run in 2:24.24.

Both teams’ pitching and defense dominated, but the No. 9 Mingus Union High School baseball team came up on the short end of a 2-1 decision at No. 8 Thunderbird High School in a hard-fought 4A State Championship first round matchup on May 2.

The Marauders [13-5, 8-4 Grand Canyon] had a few key opportunities to score runs, but every time the Chiefs’ defense was called upon, it made the play.

A number of errors shifted the tide of the Mingus Union High School softball team’s 12-0 Arizona Interscholastic Association 4A State Championship first round loss at Salpointe Catholic High School on Saturday, April 29.

The No. 12-seeded Marauders [12-6, 9-3 Grand Canyon] were down 1-0 before giving up five-run fourth and six-run fifth innings to lose 12-0 in run-rule fashion.

Members of the Mingus Union High School’s boys and girls tennis teams participated in the 2017 Arizona Interscholastic Association Division II State Championship, which began with the first and second rounds on Friday, April 21.

Mingus Union High School baseball’s flat start and season-low one run in power-point games led to a 6-1 home loss to Grand Canyon Region rival Prescott High School on Monday, April 17.

Marauders head coach Bob Young had little to say after the loss, the team’s third on the bounce, except that the team has not played the game “the right way.” The defeat further complicated its chances to claim the region title.
