With a completely healthy and eligible squad for 2017, the Mingus Union High School softball team is gearing up for a big improvement from 2016.

The Marauders, who boast a wealth of experience and key additions to the lineup, are poised to do better than their 6-16 record from a year ago.

Just two weeks into practice and three until its first meet, the Mingus Union High School track and field team is taking things one step at a time.

Rather than looking ahead to how they want each athlete to perform, head coach Yancey DeVore is focused on consistent, day-to-day work in order to formulate a plan for them.

Much to head coach Andrea Meyer’s surprise, the Mingus Union High School girls tennis team is going above and beyond in order to have a successful 2017 season.

According to Meyer, the team has been doing drills and conditioning on its own before practice, and their attitude is always positive. More importantly, the team’s skill level is already at the same level as it was at the midpoint of the 2016 season.

Camp Verde High School’s wrestling team once again had a good showing at the Division IV Arizona Interscholastic Association State Championships with a third-place finish at the 2017 edition.

The Cowboys’ success was highlighted by individual state champion performances by junior Skyler Pike, freshman Korben Uhler, sophomore Tristian Stanfield and senior Hayden Uhler.

Camp Verde High School senior wrestler Hayden Uhler completed an impressive prep career on Friday, Feb. 11.

The oldest of five Uhler grapplers, Hayden won his fourth individual Division IV Arizona Interscholastic Association State title, this year in the 138-pound weight class.

With its first meet of the 2017 season fast approaching, the Camp Verde High School track and field team is already hard at work.

Practice for spring sports in the Arizona Interscholastic Association began on Monday, Feb. 6, and the Cowboys are going through their paces to pick up from where they left off a year ago.
