The chill of winter means basketball is already underway with a plethora of early-season games and tournaments, and yet the question remains:
A freshman has already made a name for himself this basketball season, but perhaps Perry's Markus Howard isn't just another freshman.
With football taking such a predominant portion of the stage, it’s worth noting the girls volleyball state tournament got underway on Tuesday night — not to mention cross country and swimming/diving state championships are coming up this weekend — and just because there’s been an unfortunate lack of ink, doesn’t mean the tournaments are going to lack talent, excitement or drama.
Perry huddles up before the Pumas take on Hamilton on Senior Night Nov. 1, 2013.
Hamilton finished the season with a comfortable 31-0 road victory over Chandler district foe Perry on Friday night. The Huskies were in control from the opening kickoff and overmatched their hosts in nearly every facet.
Brothers playing together happens all day, every day.
In today’s age, it doesn’t take long for once-proud football programs to fall quickly from relevance.
Thanks to a career-long field goal by Austin Carver and a defense which put pressure on Perry quarterback Alec Monte all night, visiting Gilbert ruined the Pumas' homecoming night with a 9-0 win in a Division I, Section I matchup on Friday.
Highland's Ally Eylers had 16 kills, Daeleigh Castile had 12 kills and Kylee Thompson had 18 assists, but it wasn't enough as visiting Perry defeated the Hawks (21-14) in four games, 25-22, 25-16, 22-25, 25-17.
Third-ranked Chandler struck early and often on its way to a 56-10 win over visiting Perry in a Division I, Section I football game Friday.
Perry def. Chandler: 25-17, 25-19, 26-24
After Highland began the season with a 1-2 record, coach Pete Wahlheim discussed with his team the idea of winning its next four games before a brutal end to the season against the three Chandler powerhouses (Hamilton, Chandler and Basha).
Lucy Hilarides and Alexus Navarro finished first and second to help Queen Creek (31) girls cross country race to a victory over host Perry (39), Gilbert (56) and Hamilton (109).
Five runners from host Perry finished in the top 10 as the Pumas (33) defeated Gilbert (51), Hamilton (53) and Queen Creek (95).
Basha used a steady passing attack and a stout defense to rout Perry 49-0 Friday night.
On Sunday afternoon, Saguaro football coach Jason Mohns received a call from equipment manager Mike "Tug" Garcia, who said he was in the hospital and would probably miss the first few days of practice this week.
Host Perry dropped the first game but camback to take the next three and defeated Basha in a tough four-game match, 18-25, 25-20, 25-21, 25-22.
The Hamilton football team was beat up physically heading into Friday night’s showdown against Mountain Pointe, as several key players sat out with injuries.
There wasn't much Preston Jones could say.
It isn’t traditional Mountain View run-it-up-the-gut football but third-year coach Chad DeGrenier has the Toros perfect after four games with a big test coming next week.
There were more penalties than points Friday night at Gila Ridge.
Mountain View is getting better bit by bit, and the second-half performance (especially offensively) against Highland in last week’s win was further proof: 20 points in the span of 10 minutes. Still, there has been an unevenness to the Toros’ play at times, one half to another, even in their undefeated start to the season. After a narrow loss at Tucson Sunnyside in Week 1, the Pumas have bounced back a bit with consecutive wins, but Gila Ridge and Phoenix Sandra Day O’Connor aren’t Mountain View. This will be a nice challenge for the Pumas, especially offensively against the Toros’ defense to see where Perry needs to go from here in terms of scoring. Austin Nightingale has to come up big passing and running for Perry against Mountain View’s defense, and he’s done a nice job of not turning the ball over thus far. The latter is incredibly paramount here. The other big problem for Perry will be handling Clark Brown and co. and that’s where Mountain View holds a distinct advantage, assuming the Toros don’t commit three first-half turnovers here as they did against Highland.
Prediction: Mountain View 34, Perry 14
