Small in stature, it might seem like the Sedona Red Rock High baseball players don’t have a chance when they walk onto the diamond prior to a game, any game for that matter.

But when sophomore second baseman Tyler Hollmann, the smallest kid on the field, hit a three-run home run just over the left field fence to make it 6-6 in the bottom of the seventh inning while the sun was going down against Estrella Foothills High on Monday, March 16, it was business as usual.

Just over a month ago the Sedona Red Rock High tennis team reported to camp looking to set its sights on high achievement this season. With a solid group of returning boys and a young and inexperienced group of girls, those goals are certainly possible.

The Scorpion boys team began its quest for what head coach Larry Lineberry calls, “the best boys team ever” at Sedona when they defeated cross-valley rival Mingus Union High on Friday, March 6, 6-3.

“Mingus is a good team and they will go places this season so for us to beat them and open our season with a victory was huge,” Lineberry said.

Despite a strong regular season which saw the Sedona Red Rock High girls basketball team finish 19-7 overall and claim a 3A-West region championship, going 11-1, the No. 9 Scorpions still found themselves traveling to No. 8 Window Rock High in the first round of the 3A state tournament on Friday, Feb. 20.

Winning five of their last seven games to end the regular season, the Sedona Red Rock High boys basketball team clinched a 3A state playoff berth by taking third place in the 3A-West, something this group wasn’t sure was going to happen just a few weeks ago.

With the first snow of winter falling and actually sticking in the Sedona area this past week, the true meaning of “winter” finally holds strong, and with the soccer season wrapping up, it’s kind of ironic the white rain comes this late.

When Sedona residents Joe Fuss and Sherry Christoff crossed the finish line last year at the third annual Sedona Marathon, they may have been together at that moment but the pair certainly followed two different trails of bread crumbs to arrive there.

If there was ever an opportunity to play a team that wasn’t strong and the coach could rest his starters, then the season finale for the Sedona Red Rock High boys soccer team was a perfect fit as they played Arizona Lutheran Academy on Thursday, Jan. 29, and won, 8-1.
