Williams Field won its third straight match, this one a nail-biter, as the Black Hawks shot a 204 and held on for a one-shot victory over both St. Mary's and North Canyon (205). Dobson finished fourth with a 225.

St. Mary's had a chance to win as Williams Field's Trey Brown double-bogeyed the final hole, but the Knights could not capitalize as their final golfer four-putted for a double bogey himself.

Williams Field's Alex Bellville won the event with an even-par 36 as the Black Hawks won their six match in seven tries.

Davis Bauer finished tied for second for St. Mary's with a 38. ...

Defending 4A-I state champion Trey Kaahanui of McClintock shot a 2-under 36, but Queen Creek had six golfers shoot under 40 as the Bulldogs (148) outdistanced Kaahanui's Chargers (165) and Skyline (184).

Ajay Wilson and Shawn Singpradith each shot 36 to lead a balanced Bulldog attack along with Clayton Dean (38), Cole Zill (38), Denn Aras (39) and Ethan Casterton (39).


Sophomore Sarah Schmelzel shot an even-par 36 as Xavier crushed Ironwood 151-232.

Junior Cassidy Sanchez shot a 37 to edge her older sister Sierra Cassidy by one shot for the Gators. Xavier's Anne Streneva and Katie Kearney rounded out the top five.


Mountain View won a close meet against Gilbert 103-83 despite the Toros missing their top swimmer.

Senior Michael Knox missed the meet with an illness, and Gilbert actually won eight of the 12 events, but Mountain View used a balanced attack to beat the Tigers.

Gilbert's star brothers Kai and Alex Schultz each had remarkable days, winning two events apiece in dominating fashion. Kai swam a 22.08 in the 50 freestyle and a 53.20 in the 100 butterfly, both automatic state qualifying times. Alex was not going to be outdone, however, as he swam a blistering state qualifying time of 57.20 in the 100 backstroke while taking home the win in the 200 IM as well.

Mountain View's Thurston Isaac scored an impressive 227.60 points to win the diving event.


Cat Simonovic and Breeia Larson each won four events as host Mesa Mountain View crushed Gilbert 125-61.

Simonovic won the 200 free and 100 butterfly individual events, then was part of the winning foursome in both the 400 freestyle and 200 medley relays.

Larson took home both the 50 free and the 100 breaststroke and teamed up with Simonovic in the 200 medley relay to go along with a win in the 200 freestyle relay.

Gilbert's Kelly Benjamin won two events as well, hitting the wall first in the 100 freestyle and the 100 backstroke.


Hamilton's Janae Feddock and Melissa Geddes teamed up to win their doubles match to clinch a 5-4 win for host Highland over Hamilton.

Both Feddock and Geddes won tough singles matches as the Hawks (8-4) took a slim 4-2 lead into the doubles portion of the event. Despite dropping the first two doubles matches to even the team score at 4 apiece, Highland prevailed as Feddock and Geddes won in straight sets, 15-13, 15-10.

Bri Calderon won both her singles and doubles matches for the Huskies.
