Spikers accomplish quick turnaround

After several seasons relegated to the depths of the West Valley Region standings, Agua Fria has made a rapid ascent to within sight of the region’s pinnacle.

Agua Fria compiled a 4-19 record in 2003, but an Oct. 14 upset of then seventh-ranked Millennium and a season-ending victory over Willow Canyon left the Lady Owls with a 13-5 overall record and 7-3 region mark, and firmly entrenched in third place in the league.

Big 3 lead linksters to region summit

Entering the season, coach Ken Turer expected this to be a rebuilding season.

With only three of his top seven players returning from 2003, Turer has done a masterful job of reconstruction, rivaling the rebuilding of the White House after the British burned it in August 1814. “Our goal is to go out and be competitive,” Turer said before the season began. “We’re young, but we’ll be competitive.”

Millennium firmly grasps league lead

In what was supposed to be a West Valley Region first-place showdown, Buckeye was shown up by Millennium.

The Tigers scored on three of their first four possessions and returned a blocked first-half field goal attempt for a fourth score in walloping the visiting Hawks, 46-6, Oct. 22. Millennium (6-3, 3-0) ran roughshod over undersized Buckeye (4-5, 2-1) and gained 343 yards rushing in gaining a firm grip on first place in the region. The Tigers can claim the title and earn a return trip to the state playoffs with a victory at Agua Fria on Nov. 5.

DeVinney headed for Connecticut

Years of dedication and hard work in the pool have paid off in a college scholarship for Westview senior Katie DeVinney.

She verbally has committed to attend the University of Connecticut in Storrs, Conn., in fall 2005.

“I’m very excited about attending the University of Connecticut,” DeVinney said. “I did a lot of research on a lot of schools before making a decision.”

She made her decision to attend Connecticut after visiting the campus and meeting with the coaching staff. “I like the coach [Bob Goldberg],” DeVinney said. “He has been there a long time.”

2 struggling teams face off Friday

Poor defense, four turnovers and a plethora of penalties were the formula for disaster as Westview (2-5, 0-2) lost to Ironwood, 37-20, Oct. 15.

“We didn’t tackle well and anytime you give up more than 400 yards in offense, you have not played good defense,” coach Jeff Bowen said. The Knights will attempt to crack the Desert West Region victory column when they play at Kingman (1-6, 0-2) Friday.

Kingman has struggled mightily to generate offense and has been outscored 288 to 60 in its seven games.

Wolverines to face region leader

The Wolverines have a monumental task ahead of them Friday that could make, or inevitably break, their season.

Tolleson, (3-4, 1-1 Class 5A Desert West Region) is heading to Peoria to face the region leading Panthers. Another loss and Tolleson is packing it in for fall, while a victory gives the Wolverines a huge lift and keeps them in the running for postseason contention.

“This is the playoffs for us,” Tolleson head coach Jon Rohloff said. “If we lose a game, our playoff and state championship hopes are done.”
