It was not pretty, but it got the job done.

Mingus Union High School’s boys basketball team survived its own mistakes in the closing minutes of a 50-49 win over visiting Prescott High School, remaining tied for first place in the Grand Canyon Region on Tuesday, Jan. 16.

Sometimes one goal in the entire season can be more meaningful than others.

The latter of two second-half goals that lifted the Mingus Union High School boys soccer team to a 2-1 Grand Canyon Region win over visiting Prescott High School on Saturday, Jan. 13, could be the difference in going to the state playoffs or not.

Mingus Union High School’s boys basketball team has enjoyed a solid start to 2018, winning all three of its games and six of its last seven overall.

Its latest triumph came against a top Conference 2A team, No. 5-ranked Scottsdale Christian Academy, winning
76-62 at home on Thursday, Jan. 11. After the win, the Marauders [8-3, 4-1 Grand Canyon Region] shot up to No. 12 in the Arizona Interscholastic Association Conference 4A poll.

Mingus Union High School's wrestlers competed twice last week, first at Coconino High School on Wednesday, Jan. 10, before heading to the Doc Wright Invitational on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 12 and 13.

Four Marauders placed at Doc Wright, and a fifth came one win from placing as well.

Mingus Union High School’s boys basketball team recorded an important milestone on Friday, Jan 5.

It was not the fact that it picked up its third Grand Canyon Region win in four games, more than it had to this point last season.

A 71-56 win at Flagstaff High School gave the Marauders [6-3, 3-1 Grand Canyon] their first win over the rival Eagles since Dec. 15, 2009. 

Without a handful of starters, the Mingus Union High School boys soccer team came out on the right end of a 2-1 decision against visiting Lee Williams High School on Friday, Jan. 5.

The Marauders [3-3-1, 1-1 Grand Canyon] scored twice in the first half despite creating less chances and controlling less of the play against the Volunteers [2-6, 0-2].
