The Sedona-Mingus Cup will remain in Sedona’s possession for at least another year as the Scorpions defeated the Marauders 286-266 to win the annual showdown between the teams’ best swimmers for the third time in three years.


Benny Guadarrama pushes hard for the finish line on his leg of the boys 200-yard individual medley during the Mingus-Sedona Cup swimming meet.The Northland Prep swim team also competed in the meet, and tell to the Scorpions as well, 304-248.


Overall, Sedona won eight of the 22 events, including four of the six relays.


“The swimmers were amazing, simply put,” said Scorpions swimming coach A. Jay Bronson. “We went into the meet thinking we were underdogs and that we would have to pull out all the stops to win, and the athletes did it.


“Every person on the team had to swim the way they did for us to win. It was a full team effort.”


It was also Senior Night for the Scorpions who honored the eight seniors who were swimming in the final home meet of their careers.


Bronson held a small ceremony at the pool for seniors Sophia Licher, Haley Holverson, Katie Millar, Sarah Grover, Laura Clark, Wade Adams, Colin Hurkett and Nick Morgan where he presented each with a Sedona Red Rock High School sweatshirt and spoke warmly about their time competing for the team.


Holverson continued the good vibrations with wins in both the 50-yard and 100-yard freestyle races over Mingus’ Leah Mount.
The 50-yard race was close enough that officials weren’t sure who won until the timers compared notes, showing Holverson’s time at 27.09 to Mount’s 27.16.


“That one was very close,” Holverson said. “Twenty-seven is my personal best and my [100-yard freestyle time] was my personal best by 7/10ths.”
