Last week was the end of the regular season for Camp Verde High School’s basketball teams.

The boys team finished third in the Central Region with a 3-5 record, getting two more wins than last season. Different from last year, there was a Central Region tournament at the conclusion of the regular head-to-head matchups.

For the second straight year, Camp Verde High School’s wrestling team took third place at the Arizona Interscholastic Association Division IV state wrestling championship on Saturday, Feb. 10, at the Prescott Valley Event Center.

Cowboys senior Skyler Pike, sophomore Korben Uhler and junior Anthony Tinghitella were all crowned champions, and six of nine who competed placed in the top five.

Camp Verde High School’s boys basketball carried the lead going into halftime, but the pressure brought on by Verde Valley rival Sedona Red Rock High School proved too much in a 67-49 loss on Friday, Jan. 26.

The Cowboys [7-9, 2-4] dealt with that pressure through the first half, opening a 12-6 lead and leading by as many as 10 points in the second quarter. Giving up 30 points in the third turned the tables in favor of the visitors.

Camp Verde High School’s basketball teams went on a clean sweep as both the girls and boys teams beat Northland Preparatory Academy and Chino Valley High School last week.

Despite a stable start to the first quarter, the pressure brought on by Verde Valley rival Sedona Red Rock High School was too much for Camp Verde High School’s boys basketball team in a 69-51 road defeat on Tuesday, Jan. 9.

The Cowboys [4-7, 0-3 Central Region] struggled to create quality looks at the offensive end on a consistent basis against the No. 15-ranked Scorpions [6-2, 2-1].

The young, No. 6-ranked Camp Verde High School girls basketball team hung around with the veteran, No. 3-ranked Sedona Red Rock High School early on, then fell behind across the middle two quarters en route to a 62-36 Central Region loss on Tuesday, Jan. 9.

Experience proved invaluable, as the Scorpions [7-0, 3-0 Central] continued to attack the Cowboys [10-2, 3-1] with their full-court pressure, eventually imposing their fast-paced style of play and taking the game over.

Camp Verde High School’s wrestling team is feeling confident entering the final stretch of the season.

There are just over two weeks until the Arizona Interscholastic Association Division IV, Section 1 tournament, and the Cowboys are hitting their stride at the right time.
