A new form of exercise, as well as movement, has found a home at Posse Grounds Park.

On Thursday, Feb. 16, the first Parkour class was held at the park, led by Francesco DiGuida and Anthony Porter, with nine young participants completely new to the activity.

With upwards of 10 newcomers, the Sedona Red Rock High School softball team is more or less starting from scratch in 2017.

But at the same time, head coach Ethan Hartz expects better results than 2016, when the team went 6-12.

For the second consecutive season, the Sedona Red Rock High School girls basketball team has reached the Final Four of the Arizona Interscholastic Association State Championship.

The sixth-seeded Scorpions [30-1, 10-0 2A Central] will face off with No. 2 seed Leading Edge Academy — Gilbert, in what is now called the 2A State Championship, at 1:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24 at the Prescott Valley Event Center.

After a close first round win on Friday, Feb. 17, the No. 6 seed Sedona Red Rock High School girls basketball team bounced back for a 47-29 quarterfinal victory over No. 14 Many Farms High School at the 2017 Arizona Interscholastic Association 2A State Championship on Saturday, Feb. 18.

The Scorpions [30-1, 10-0 2A Central] led just 10-4 after the first quarter, but used another strong defensive effort in the second quarter to blow open the game.

After its 58-44 first round loss in the 2017 Arizona Interscholastic Association 2A State Championship to No. 4 seed Scottsdale Christian Academy, head coach Kirk Westervelt said that the No. 13 Sedona Red Rock High School boys basketball team had to play a perfect game to pull off the upset.

It nearly did, but was not consistent on either side of the court for the whole game.

A strong first half performance was all the No. 6 seed Sedona Red Rock High School girls basketball team needed to get a 53-43 first round victory over No. 11 San Carlos High School in the 2017 Arizona Interscholastic Association 2A State Championship on Friday, Feb. 17 at the Prescott Valley Event Center.

That is because the second half proved to be a stark contrast to the first for the Scorpions [28-1, 10-0 2A Central]. Foul trouble and 20 second-half turnovers gave the Braves all of the momentum, who came within nine points on two occasions in the fourth quarter.

After finishing the 2016 season with a 17-7 record and a second-round playoff appearance, the best it has had in quite some time according to head coach Craig Eagle, Sedona Red Rock High School’s baseball team is shaping up for another successful season in 2017.

Despite having graduated five players from last season, Eagle is confident in his team, mostly in its pitching and defense.

After almost finishing the regular season without a loss, the Sedona Red Rock High School girls basketball team must go undefeated in four games to win the 2017 Arizona Interscholastic Association 2A State Championship.

The Scorpions [27-1, 10-0 2A Central] were seeded No. 6 in the tournament, and will face off with No. 11 San Carlos High School in the first round at 3 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17, at the Prescott Valley Event Center.
