This is very unique. It’s pretty awkward. It’s a little embarrassing, to be honest.
No. 7 Campo Verde survived a scare from No. 10 Tucson Sahuaro in the first round of the Division II playoffs on Friday night, a 34-21 Coyotes' victory in a game much closer than the final score might indicate.
Abbie Cantwell had seen, up close and personal, what it took to win a state golf tournament.

Outlook: George De La Torre knows where the Dobson football program stands in the Division I hierarchy. After a one-win season in 2012 and low program numbers which affect depth, the Mustangs aren’t going to be favored many times on Friday nights this fall. De La Torre doesn’t want to fight the perception of his team but instead wants his players to embrace it.
Outlook: It might difficult for a school with regular playoff appearances and 3,300 students to be "lying in the weeds," but Red Mountain is doing everything it can to not be seen (relatively speaking).
10. Sahuaro — Hung tough against Sabino and Cienega a season ago. The Cougars return many impact defensive players as well as QB Laramie Brown and WR Cole Sterns on offense.
9. Buena — RB Dominique Drake (1,621 yards, 23 TD) is one of the division’s top returning rushers. The Colts made the playoffs in Division I a year ago and should at least equal that as they move down to Div. II.
8. Apollo — QB Jordan Gungl (2,427 yards, 26 TD, 5 INT) is back but has a new group of wideouts. Hawks offense should be good again and if the defense can step up, season could be special. Nico Bayless (963 rush yards, 16 TD; 50 tackles on defense) will be key on both sides of the ball.
7. Marana Mountain View — Surprised many by beating Cienega twice a year ago, including in the playoffs. Many key pieces back, including standout running back Richie Estrada (1,754 yards, 19 TD).
6. Marcos de Niza — QB Josh Eckley is one of biggest threats in the division, but there are several question marks around him on offense after graduation and transfers gutted the skill positions. Defense should be good, though, and the program always has athletes.
