When talking to Mark Showers, Camp Verde High School’s athletic director and girls’ basketball coach, it quickly becomes obvious he values hard work and dedication.

He also believes in coaching for a nobler reason than money, wins or recognition. And he does know how to take a surprise well.

It is said that defense wins games, but when the offense does not hold up its end of the bargain, it complicates things.

The Mingus Union High School girls basketball team gave up just 37 points, but struggled on offense, falling 37-20 to visiting Bradshaw Mountain High School in 4A Grand Canyon Section play on Tuesday, Jan. 24.

Despite cold temperatures and falling snow outside of the Mingus Union High School gym, its boys basketball team had hot shooting hands.

The Marauders [12-14, 4-4 4A Grand Canyon] jumped on visiting Bradshaw Mountain High School early in a battle between the fourth and fifth placed teams in the section on Jan. 24, coming away 68-49 victors.

Seniors Auli Hanks, Holly Johnson, Yadira Romero and Sienna Duenas ended their careers at Bright Field for the Mingus Union High School girls soccer team with plenty to be happy about.

A greater commitment to defense and improved shooting by the Camp Verde High School boys basketball team was not enough as it fell in the second Verde Valley rivalry game of the season, 60-44, at Sedona Red Rock High School on Friday. Jan. 27.

Cowboys head coach Dan Wall said that his team [5-17, 1-5 2A Central] was conscious of the host Scorpions’ streaky scoring tendencies, but turnovers proved too troublesome for it. On Jan. 10 the Cowboys fell at home, 67-38, giving up 17 points off of turnovers.
