As if placing fifth overall in Division IV at last year’s AIA State Wrestling Championships was no tall task, the Camp Verde High School wrestling team is shaping up to potentially have an even better season in 2016-17.

The Cowboys had six individual champions en route to winning the third annual Veterans Memorial Invitational, which included 24 teams from Arizona, New Mexico and California on Dec. 16 and 17.

Heading into the Yvonne Johnson Memorial Tournament, Camp Verde High School head girls basketball coach Mark Showers wanted his team to play opponents different from those they have played so far this season.

In their second round matchup with Many Farms High School on Dec. 29, they got just that.

The Camp Verde High School boys basketball team made a breakthrough on the first day of the Yvonne Johnson Memorial Tournament.

It pulled off a two-game winning streak for the first time all season.
