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.

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.

After falling to Lee Williams High School in its two previous meetings, the Mingus Union High School girls basketball team exacted its revenge at the Grand Canyon Region Tournament on Monday, Feb. 6.

The Marauders [8-12, 3-9 4A Grand Canyon] beat the Volunteers by a score of 40-38 in the first round of the tournament, played at Flagstaff High School.

Mingus Union High School’s most experienced wrestlers wrapped up their seasons at the 2017 Arizona Interscholastic Association Division III State Championships on Thursday and Friday, Feb. 9 and 10, at the Prescott Valley Event Center.

The middleweight grapplers have been the pick of the litter for the Marauders this season, and three of the four who qualified for State advanced to the medal round on Feb. 10, which includes the top six wrestlers.

Before the start of the Grand Canyon Region Tournament on Feb. 6, Mingus Union High School boys basketball coach Dave Beery instilled a bit of fear into his team in the form of a much-needed reminder.

A reminder that, despite the fact it had already picked up two wins against first-round opponent Bradshaw Mountain High School, the Marauders [14-19, 5-7 4A Grand Canyon] were not going to cruise to a third.

A season of steady progress is coming to a head for the Mingus Union High School wrestling team.

Four Marauders have qualified for the Arizona Interscholastic Association State Championship after competing at the Division IV Section I tournament, held at Payson High School Thursday and Friday, Feb. 2 and 3.
