Less than one month into the 2017 season, the Sedona Red Rock High School track and field team has a number of athletes who have achieved provisional or automatic qualification to the Arizona Interscholastic Division IV state meet.

Thirteen individual girls and 12 boys have reached the standards set for Division IV, as well as the 4x100-meter relay on both sides.

Sedona Red Rock High School’s boys and girls tennis teams discovered winning ways when they hosted Kingman High School on Friday, March 10.

The Scorpions boys [2-1] got a clean sweep, winning the match 9-0 while the girls [1-3] grabbed their first win of the season, 6-3.

Through the first four games of the season, the Sedona Red Rock High School baseball team has not gotten desired results, most recently losing 12-4 to Winslow High School and 2-1 to Kingman Academy High School.

Each of the Scorpions’ [1-3] losses came under different circumstances. On Friday, March 10, against Winslow, the team rallied to tie the game at three, but then gave up seven runs during the following two innings to put things out of reach.

Inexperience and the absence of regular starting pitcher, junior Natalie Monge, have been the mark of the Sedona Red Rock High School softball team’s season so far. Most recently, it lost 18-1 in five innings at Kingman Academy High School on Thursday, March 9.

Underclassmen who are still learning the game populate the lineup for the Scorpions [1-3], but normally produce a bit more offensively.

To win a 40-run shootout, it would be hard to imagine that defense was what did it for the victorious team. In Sedona Red Rock High School’s 26-14 win over visiting Anthem Preparatory Academy, strong defense in two innings made the difference.

The Scorpions [1-2] sealed their first win of the season on Tuesday, March 7, in six innings thanks to defensive stands in the fifth and sixth.

The Sedona Red Rock High School baseball team scored early, and at least four runs in every inning, en route to a 17-7 mercy-rule win over visiting Anthem Preparatory Academy on Tuesday, March 7.

The Scorpions saw an 8-1 lead cut to 8-7 in third inning, but tightened up their defense while pouring in nine more runs to seal the win.

There were no hiccups in the Sedona Red Rock High School golf team’s 2017 debut as it won a four-way dual match against Verde Valley rival Camp Verde High School, Northland Preparatory Academy and Wickenburg High School.

The Scorpions [1-0] scored 167 during the nine-hole round, played at Verde Santa Fe Golf Course on Thursday, March 3. The top four scores from each team are used to determine its final score for the match.

With the majority of their teams comprised of inexperienced players, the Sedona Red Rock High School boys and girls tennis squads’ best showings will not come until later in the season.

The teams faced off with Northland Preparatory Academy on Tuesday, March 7. The boys [2-1] lost 8-1 while the girls [0-2] lost 6-3.
