On Monday, July 7, Sedona Red Rock High Athletic Director John Parks and Pinnacle One Project Manager Dave Young announced the re-opening of the newly completed football field and track project to the public.

“We are excited to inform the public that our refurbished football field and track project is now complete and open for use,” Parks said.

The finished $1.6 million product at SRRHS is only one part of a three-phase project using the $73.4 million bond fund approved last year by voters within the Sedona Oakcreek School District.

Kyle Kirsch, a 2005 graduate of Sedona Red Rock High, continued to live the dream as his University of Arizona club baseball team fought their way to the National Club Baseball World Series in Fort Myers, Fla., from May 23 through May 29.

Kirsch, a third baseman on the team, was one of the founding players on the Wildcats inaugural club baseball team.

“For us to get to the World Series in our first season was incredible,” Kirsch said.

The more often they swim, the better and better they get.

That’s what Sedona Swim team head coach Erin Estes said about her team after they dominated another meet, this time a dual competition against Kingman on Saturday, June 28.

“This meet worked in favor of our kids because we had many in the pool besides just our top swimmers. Having everyone puts us way over the top,” Estes said.

Sedona took the victory by scoring 2,916 points compared to Kingman’s 1,728 points.

It’s not exactly the big leagues, but don’t tell that to anyone involved in the Sedona Summer Recreational Softball League, since the level of play and the games they play in are just as serious as any other sport out there.

   The majestic red rocks paired with ambient sunsets and beautiful weather equal one of the premier camping and hiking destinations in the state of Arizona: Sedona.

Players from all over the world putted for pleasure and for bragging rights in the seventh annual First Piggy ILX Open Mini-Golf Tournament held at Los Abrigados Resort & Spa on Sunday, June 15.

First time champion Matt McCaslin from North Carolina, also the 2008 U.S. Open Mini-Golf champion, shot a 235 on Sunday and was on his way to claim his first mini-golf championship in Sedona.

McCaslin was behind by 13 strokes after four rounds, but stormed back in the last four rounds shooting a 28, 28, 27 and 29 to take home the $2,000 prize money and a seven-day vacation from ILX.

When the Sedona Red Rock High School boys basketball team took the court for the first time at the end of May to begin preparing for the 2008 version of summer basketball, each and every player looked around as if someone or something was missing.

Well, how about 20 points, 10 rebounds, five steals and five assists per game in last year’s first team all-region performer and senior Michael Krajnak?

He’s gone, boys, and it’s time to move on, Sedona head coach Bob Murphy told them diligently.
