Click here to read a Q&A with Mingus Union High School football player Alex Nelson. Nelson scored five touchdowns en route to the Marauders 38-0 rout of Lee Williams High School on Friday, Sept. 15, in the team's Grand Canyon Region opener.
Mingus Union High School’s volleyball team’s defensive struggles led to a 3-0 [12-25, 14-25, 13-25] loss to visiting Flagstaff High School in its first home Grand Canyon Region match of the season.
The Marauders [1-4, 0-2] gave up double-digit service aces and were always on their heels against the Eagles [4-1, 1-0].
The third time was the charm for Mingus Union High School’s volleyball team.
It had dropped its first two matches of the season in five sets and was faced with another five-set battle, this time against Dysart High School in its home debut on Wednesday, Sept. 6.
But the Marauders [1-2] did not let it slip away, winning the decisive set 15-10.
The same small problems continued to be a thorn in the side of Mingus Union High School’s golf team.
It shared the links with Prescott High School, a top opponent for the Division II, Region VII title, for the third time in the young season. And the Marauders were runner up to the Badgers for a third time, most recently at a three-way match at Antelope Hills Golf Course’s south course on Sept. 5.
Mingus Union High School’s golf team secured a Division II, Region VII win by a wide margin against Bradshaw Mountain High School on Tuesday, Aug. 29 at Prescott Country Club.
Two Marauders tied for first overall and another pair tied for third en route to a 40-stroke win. Nonetheless, on an individual level, it was not the outing they were looking for.
