Runner breaks through after tragic incident

It’s often said a courageous athlete is one who gets up after being knocked down. Tolleson cross country athlete Joe Lopez experienced that personally, and has conquered the challenge.

In the first race of the season, at Estrella Mountain Regional Park, Lopez collapsed less than 200 feet from the finish line while leading.

Playoff hopes for Tolleson: slim to none

With two games remaining and a 3-5 record, the Wolverines are going to need a near miracle in order to get into the postseason this year.

Tolleson, which is 1-2 in the region, needs two wins and a combination of scenarios to play out in order to have a chance.

Considering one of those scenarios includes a Kingman victory over Peoria, a situation as likely as a snowy summer in Phoenix, the Wolverines will focus their attention on the seniors in the final two games of the year.

Saints march in

Coming off its most dominant performance of the season, Millennium looks to keep that momentum going when it hosts Notre Dame Prep at 7 p.m. Friday.

Notre Dame has suffered the tribulations of a first-year program. Coach Scot Bemis’ Saints, playing an independent, limited-varsity schedule, have won one of seven games, beating Chinle, 42-18.

Notre Dame lost to another school, Sandra Day O’Connor, with a first-year varsity squad last week, 39-19.

Skye’s the limit

Although she is barely old enough to drive a car and not old enough to vote, Skye Elbert already has experienced the pressure of competing in international swim meets, as she sets her sights on a college scholarship and ultimately a U.S. Olympic berth.

A 16-year-old junior at Millennium High, Elbert already has won the West Valley Region and state championship two consecutive years in 50-yard freestyle and 100 backstroke.

Wolves go for upset of No. 1 Coolidge

Estrella Foothills has one more chance to make a statement and try to etch its name into a playoff bracket, but the task will not be easy.

The Wolves’ (4-5, 1-3 South Region) biggest game of the year features the best team of the year in Class 3A, according to the rankings.

On paper it’s evident why Coolidge (9-0, 4-0) is ranked No. 1 in the state and has been so dominant. The Bears have outscored their opponents 423-98 on the season, compiling four shutouts.

Coolidge head coach Carlo Hernandez is not totally convinced of their dominance.

Scorpions rout Chinle; look to O’Conner

Allowing just 47 yards of total offense, Desert Edge earned the program its first varsity shutout, stomping Chinle 52-0 Oct. 22.

Coming off a game of character Oct. 15 against Buckeye in which an overmatched, undersized Desert Edge team was handed a 24-point loss but kept its composure in a penalty filled contest, the Scorpions were too much for Chinle.

The Wildcats completed one pass for 10 yards and had just three first downs the entire game while turning the ball over six times (three fumbles, three interceptions).
