Click here to view scores and upcoming games for the Mingus Union High School girls soccer team, who finishes up its season this week.

Like a broken record, the Mingus Union High School boys soccer team continues to play the same tune game after game.

The Marauders [1-6-1, 1-2] lacked execution en route to their 3-0 loss to visiting Bradshaw Mountain High School on Jan. 17 at Bright Field.

The mix of experienced and inexperienced talent on the Mingus Union High School wrestling team has enjoyed a good season, learning and improving every week.

It competed at Camp Verde High School on Jan. 18. in a five-way dual meet.

When watching the Camp Verde High School wrestlers, the majority united by matching bleach blond hair, it becomes obvious that they are at a level above that of their opponents.

The speed, skill and aggression with which they wrestle would lead spectators to think that the key to their success is hard work, experience and good coaching.

But it’s something else.

The Camp Verde High School boys basketball team threw everything but the kitchen sink at visiting Chino Valley High School in its 66-53 loss on Jan. 19.

At the newly dedicated Dr. Mark J. Westervelt Gymnasium, the Cowboys’ [5-16, 1-4 2A Central] nine-point effort in the first half doomed them.

Defense was the name of the game as Camp Verde High School’s girls basketball team cruised to a 47-18 home victory against Chino Valley High School on Jan. 19.

The Cowboys [14-5, 4-1 2A Central] gave up just six points in the second half en route to the win.

To the casual observer, a 50-19 loss would seem like a poor performance on the losing team’s part. Such was not the case for the young Camp Verde High School girls basketball team.

The truth is that the Cowboys [13-6, 2-1] were tasked with facing off with an undefeated and more experienced Sedona Red Rock High School team.
