The Mingus Union High School boys tennis team has removed any pressure it might have felt for the 2017 season by matching its win total from 2016, winning its season opener against Moon Valley High School, 6-3, on Thursday, Feb. 23.

Senior Alex Flannery, the Marauders’ No. 1 player, had a hand in two of the six team points by winning his singles matchup in overpowering fashion, 6-0, 6-0, and pairing with Caleb Wylie to win their doubles match, 8-3.

The Mingus Union High School softball team picked up its first home victory since the 2015 season in a 2-1 Grand Canyon Region win against Flagstaff High School on Friday, Feb. 24.

The Marauders [2-0, 1-0] took advantage of a couple of defensive misplays by the Eagles to score the game-winning run in the fourth inning.

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.

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.

A leadoff solo home run by junior third baseman Tyler Kelly gave the Mingus Union High School baseball a smashing start to its 2017 season, but the Marauders ultimately fell 8-5 to visiting Combs High School on Wednesday, Feb. 22.

Six errors, including two in the decisive fifth inning, proved costly for the Marauders [1-1] during a game in which there were a number of big plays.

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.

The Mingus Union High School boys tennis team is gearing up for another season, looking to improve upon its 1-13 record from a year ago.

But with half of the team comprised of new players, and the other half gone due to graduation, head coach Larry Lineberry has secondary goals in mind as well.
