Although still early in her collegiate career, Sedona Red Rock High School 2017 graduate Hannah Ringel is beginning to find success during the indoor track and field season.

As one of the few freshman to not redshirt, Ringel is already measuring up against throwers of equal or higher caliber.

It is 9 a.m. on Jan. 3, and H.B. “Boots” Claunts arrives at Canyon Mesa Country Club in the Village of Oak Creek.

It is a day like most: Boots shows up, sits beside his personal lamp and plays a game of hearts with his friends — as long as there are at least four of them, but no fewer — before setting off for another scramble or a morning raz as they call it on the links.

This day, though, would soon turn into a memorable one.

A frenzied final four minutes was not enough to complete a comeback as the No. 11 Sedona Red Rock High School’s boys basketball team fell to No. 3 Paradise Honors High School 64-57 at home on Friday, Jan. 19.

The Scorpions [7-3, 3-2 Central] trailed 52-39 with half a quarter left in the game before pulling off a 15-7 run to get within five, but the Panthers [14-0, 5-0] made their free throws to claim the win.

Sedona Red Rock High School’s girls soccer team’s undefeated streak came to an end when it dropped its 3A Region 1 opener to No. 4-ranked Veritas Preparatory Academy 3-1 at home on Wednesday, Jan. 17.

The Scorpions [6-1-1, 0-1 3A Region 1], ranked No. 15 as of press time, had trouble generating any true scoring threats while the Falcons [8-1, 1-0] played most of the game in its offensive half of the field.

Two goals in the final 11 minutes lifted the Sedona Red Rock High School boys soccer team to a 4-3 win over Veritas Preparatory Academy on Wednesday, Jan. 17, at John Ordean Stadium.

Scorpions sophomore forward Michael Lagorio secured the win from the penalty spot with seven seconds remaining, and the team improved to 2-0 in 3A Region 1 play and 4-3 overall.

Hannah Ringel, a 2017 Sedona Red Rock High School graduate, made her NCAA debut with the University of Idaho track and field team.

Twenty-seven days after its last game, Sedona Red Rock High School’s boys soccer team returned to action, splitting its pair of games with a resounding 25 goals in total between them.

The Scorpions [3-3, 1-0 3A Region 1] gave up 14 goals between the two games, beginning with an 8-1 home loss to Tonopah Valley High School on Tuesday, Jan. 9, in which three key players were missing. On the road the following day, they allowed six more against Wickenburg High School, but put eight past the Wranglers to secure the win.
