The Scorpions took on the 4A Marauders as well as a 6A team from Phoenix in Cesar Chavez High School on Thursday, July 13.

High school basketball teams typically spend the month of June practicing and playing together before players return to their clubs. Nonetheless the Sedona Red Rock High School boys team hosted a four-team tournament on Saturday and Sunday, July 15 and 16, taking second place.

The Scorpions went 3-2 on the weekend, both losses coming to Verde Valley rival Mingus Union High School, the second a 57-51 loss in the championship game.

One of those places is at Red Rock Crossing, where visitors will find three places to relax, swim or even slide.
