High pressure and a fast tempo by the Sedona Red Rock High School boys basketball team pushed them to an 83-51 win over the visiting Eagles of the Anthem Preparatory Academy on Monday, Dec. 12.

Leading 14-13 after the first quarter, the Scorpions outscored the Eagles 22-11 in the second and 24-11 in the third to run away with the victory.

The Sedona Red Rock High School girls basketball team captured the fifth annual Sedona Shootout with a 55-54 win over Tuba City High School in the final on Saturday, Dec. 10.

The Sedona Red Rock High School boys soccer team improved to 3-0 on the season after stopping a late comeback attempt from visiting Wickenburg High School, 3-2, on Dec. 6.

After going up 2-0 in the first half and leading 3-0 during the second, the Scorpions allowed Wickenburg to climb back into the game with two late goals.

“In the first three quarters of the game we did great,” first-year head coach Johan Lagercrantz said. “It was the best I’ve seen.”

The Sedona Red Rock High School boys and girls soccer teams are gearing up for another competitive season, with both teams earning good results after their first few games.

The girl’s team, after exiting last year’s Arizona Interscholastic Association Division IV playoffs in a 1-0 quarterfinal loss to Pusch Ridge Christian Academy, now starts six freshmen, the majority of whom are on defense.

Despite it being the first high school minutes most of the team has seen, assistant coach Dan Surber was pleased with the team’s performances, which included a 2-2 tie with North High School, a 5-1 win over Odyssey Institute and a 2-0 victory over Tempe High School in the Desert Cup Classic last week.
