Camp Verde High School’s girls basketball team won its fourth consecutive game after beating visiting Horizon Honors High School 48-19 on Thursday, Dec. 14.

The Cowboys [7-1] then traveled to Tonopah Valley High School, winning 67-18 on Friday, Dec. 15, to extend the streak to five games. However, the team’s average margin of victory of that same span is 31.5 points. 

It may not have been the toughest stretch of games, but it has also allowed the team to compete while solving a few issues.

Mingus Union High School’s girls soccer team took a 2-0 lead over Mohave High School with 20 minutes left, only to allow two goals in the final 13 and a third in overtime to fall 3-2 in the Grand Canyon Region opener at home on Saturday, Dec. 16.

The Marauders [1-4-1, 0-1 Grand Canyon] and Thunderbirds [3-2, 1-1 Grand Canyon] played a relatively even match until the visitors scored their first goal. Then Mingus was on the back foot, trying to see out the game, but a long-distance strike from Mohave senior striker Aliyah Armijo tied it.

For the second time in as many weeks, another slow start defensively put the Camp Verde High School boys basketball team in a halftime hole, but this time could not complete the comeback as it lost to Horizon Honors High School 60-50 at home on Thursday, Dec. 14.

The Cowboys [4-4] gave up 19 points in the second half after allowing 23 in the first quarter alone, but their offensive production also slowed down the stretch.

Although still early in the season, three Mingus Union High School wrestlers have already competed in their final matches on home turf.

Nick Doerksen, Lucas Svoboda and Jay Martinez, along with team manager Ashley Wingfield, were honored during a four-team dual meet on Wednesday, Dec. 13.

After giving up just six first-quarter points to visiting Winslow High School, the Mingus Union High School girls basketball team gave up 25 in the second, ultimately losing 55-29 on Wednesday, Dec. 6.

The Marauders [3-2, 2-0 Grand Canyon Region] also managed just six points in the first and only four more in the problematic second to go into a 31-10 hole at halftime.

Camp Verde High School’s girls basketball team used its lopsided 56-17 win over visiting Bourgade Catholic High School to the best of its ability, continuing to work on details at both ends of the floor.

The victory on Thursday, Dec. 7, was the first of two of the week after a 51-49 loss at Payson High School on Tuesday, Dec. 5, and a 55-8 win against Anthem Preparatory Academy on Friday, Dec. 8.

Mingus Union High School’s boys soccer team grabbed a goal less than a minute before halftime and dominated the midfield in the second half en route to a 3-0 win over Youngker High School at home on Tuesday, Dec. 5.

The Marauders [1-1] scored their first goals of the season, lifting a weight off of the their shoulders, and played a more calm game during the final 40 minutes after halftime.
