The Sedona Red Rock Junior High School track and field team competed in its first meet, the Camp Verde Invitational, on Thursday, April 6. Only 16 athletes are on the team, but many placed high at the 10-team competition.

When a baseball team scores 30 runs across two games, more often than not it will come away the winner from both. Such was not the case for Sedona Red Rock High School’s team, splitting its two games on Friday and Saturday,
April 7 and 8.

On Friday, the Scorpions [3-7, 2-2 Central] picked up a 17-2 region win over visiting Glendale Preparatory Academy but then lost to Conference 1A Joseph City High School 17-13 the following day.

One local youth soccer team has been taking its competition by storm in 2017. That team is the Verde Valley Vipers, an Under-12 boys American Youth Soccer Organization team that currently holds a 13-2 record.

The Vipers won their first three tournaments, a total of 12 games, of the season that began in February. They suffered their first losses at the River Daze tournament in Bullhead City.

Defensive problems continued to hold back the Sedona Red Rock High School baseball team, this time resulting in a 9-8 away loss to Paradise Honors High School on Tuesday, April 11.

Leading 6-1 after the top of the fifth inning, a Scorpions [3-8, 2-3 Central] error allowed the Panthers to knot the game at six, and from there rode momentum to the Central Region victory. The loss also dropped the team to fourth in the region standings.

In his second meet back from a hamstring injury, Sedona Red Rock High School senior Joe Glomski became the No. 1 long jumper in Arizona across all divisions at the Mingus Invitational on Friday, April 7, at Mingus Union High School.

Glomski jumped 23-09.75, which according to him is still a half inch short of the school record. The distance also ties him for 16th best in the entire United States.

Sedona Red Rock High School’s softball team rebounded from a Central Region loss to Northland Preparatory Academy on April 4 with a 22-3 pounding of Glendale Preparatory Academy on Friday, April 7.

The Scorpions [3-8, 2-3 Central] then received a visit from Williams High School, the No. 4 team in Conference 1A, on Saturday, April 8, losing 11-4.
