Camp Verde High School’s football team spent all week preparing for what Tonopah Valley High School was going to throw at them, giving up just eight first-half points at home on Friday, Sept. 22.

But the Cowboys [1-4, 0-2] were not ready for the halftime adjustments made by the Phoenix, giving up 26 more en route to a 36-0 Central Region defeat.

More than any on-court changes or improvements from the last time Mingus Union High School volleyball faced off with Grand Canyon Region rival Bradshaw Mountain High School, desire and mental toughness played a big part in the match on Tuesday, Sept. 19.

It translated into a 3-1 [25-5, 25-19, 23-25, 25-19] victory for the Marauders [2-5, 1-3]. It also marked their first region win of the season. The first time around, on Aug. 29, they were leading 2-0 before falling 3-2 to the Bears.
