For Camp Verde High School head wrestling coach Tracy Tudor, this season is not just about getting pins and wins.

Tudor said he has seven “studs” who can win a state title and up to nine who can place at this year’s Arizona Interscholastic Association Division IV state championships, but above all he is concerned about one thing for his wrestlers: Discipline.

Camp Verde High School football ended the 2017 season on a high note, beating Verde Valley rival Sedona Red Rock High School on the road 30-14 on Friday, Oct. 27.

The Cowboys [3-6, 2-3 Central Region] defeated the Scorpions [0-9, 0-5] for the second year in a row, converting two takeaways into 13 points en route to the victory.

Camp Verde High School’s No.3-seeded boys soccer team suffered a 1-1 loss to No. 6 Show Low High School after penalty kicks [5-4] in the first round of the Arizona Interscholastic Association Conference 2A tournament on Wednesday, Oct. 25.

Cowboys head coach David Miller always carries a yellow sheet of paper that has all of his players on it. Heading into the game, he was without four key starters, including two defenders and senior goalkeeper Preston Maynard.

Nontheless the Cowboys and Cougars battled end-to-end for 100 minutes before going to the decisive spot kicks.

For the second time in two weeks, the Camp Verde High School girls soccer team hosted the No. 1 team in Conference 2A at that moment.

This time it was on senior night, Thursday, Oct. 12, against Northland Preparatory Academy in another Central Region contest. The Cowboys fell 3-1.

Camp Verde High School’s boys soccer team proved it could adjust and pull off a comeback when it won 4-3 in overtime at Phoenix Country Day School on Saturday, Oct. 14.

The Cowboys [10-1, 5-0] maintained their unblemished record in Central Region play behind a second-half hat trick from senior striker Nathan Schultz and the overtime game-winner from senior midfielder Brandon Cruz.

The stage was set for a memorable evening for the Camp Verde High School boy’s soccer team on Thursday, Oct 19.

It was the opportunity to beat rival and No. 1 Chino Valley High School at home, on senior night, with the Central Region title on the line, the first time that the senior sextuplet would have defeated the Cougars.

But a seven-goal second half by the reigning Conference 2A champions spoiled the occasion, defeating the No. 3 Cowboys [11-2, 6-1] 7-1.
