For a second successive season Camp Verde High School’s boys soccer team reached the final of the Chino Cup, but fell to host Chino Valley High School 2-1.
On Thursday, Sept. 7, the Cowboys [4-2, 0-1 2A Central Region] faced off with the Cougars in Chino Valley, and again lost. This time it was a 2A Central Region matchup, and they have lost each of the last six matchups.
The same small problems continued to be a thorn in the side of Mingus Union High School’s golf team.
It shared the links with Prescott High School, a top opponent for the Division II, Region VII title, for the third time in the young season. And the Marauders were runner up to the Badgers for a third time, most recently at a three-way match at Antelope Hills Golf Course’s south course on Sept. 5.
The third time was the charm for Mingus Union High School’s volleyball team.
It had dropped its first two matches of the season in five sets and was faced with another five-set battle, this time against Dysart High School in its home debut on Wednesday, Sept. 6.
But the Marauders [1-2] did not let it slip away, winning the decisive set 15-10.
Camp Verde High School’s football team picked up its first win of the season in a 22-0 shutout over Arizona College Preparatory, on Friday, Sept. 8.
What satisfied Cowboys head coach Jerry Rhoades most was the team’s response to adversity late in the game when things got out of sorts, much of it due to injury.
Many times the first match of the season is a tough one for any team, and it was no different for the Mingus Union High School volleyball team.
And the Marauders [0-1] could not have had a more difficult first game, on the road in a region match at Bradshaw Mountain High School, losing 3-2. What made things even tougher was the fact that they led two sets to zero.
