Coming off of a state championship game appearance a year ago, it is no wonder that Camp Verde High School’s softball team is off to a 3-0 start in official games this season.

After a 7-5 win over visiting Chino Valley High School on March 6, the Cowboys have outscored their opponents 39 to nine, but there is still room to grow, mostly in the finer details of the game.

Sixteen runs in the first two innings propelled the Camp Verde High School baseball team to 19-0 thrashing of visiting Wickenburg High School in four innings on Thursday, March 2.

Cowboys senior pitcher Carson Zale had a big day on the mound and in the batters box, giving up three hits, striking out five and walking two for the complete game shutout. He hit his second home run of the week, and his career, to go three for three with three RBIs and two runs scored.

The 2017 Camp Verde High School golf team may field a lineup filled with young and relatively inexperience golfers, but, according to head coach Christian Fuller, “they have fun, they want to learn.”

In their first match, the Cowboys shot 260 to finish fourth of four teams during the nine-hole round played Thursday, March 2, at Verde Santa Fe. Fuller said a number of players are still working on the basics.

After an Arizona Interscholastic Association Division IV championship game appearance in 2016, the Camp Verde High School softball team is off to a strong start in 2017, winning its season opener 15-2 in five innings against Mayer High School on Wednesday, Feb. 22.

The Cowboys [2-0] took down Wickenburg High School the following day 17-2.

A 15-0 mercy-rule win for the Camp Verde High School baseball team over Mayer High School in its first game of the season would be indicative of a team that is already performing to its standards.

But in reality, Cowboys head coach Will Davis was satisfied with only one of three facets of the team’s showing, its defense that committed zero errors and allowed zero runs. Extremely windy conditions affected play as well.

The No. 10-seeded Camp Verde High School girls basketball team could not hang on to the ball in the second half of its 45-23 loss to No. 7 Phoenix Country Day School in the first round of the 2017 Arizona Interscholastic Association 2A State Championship on Friday, Feb. 17, at Yavapai College.

The Cowboys [18-8, 7-3 2A Central] were down just 19-18 at halftime, but mustered just five second-half points while committing 15 turnovers.

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 an experienced, senior-laden squad for the 2017 season, success is the only option for the Camp Verde High School baseball team.

The Cowboys have 10 seniors, seven of whom have played on the varsity team since they were freshmen, and two sophomores on the team.
