Memorable moments from the 2012-2013 season

Xavier’s wild winter: Despite its history of championships and another talented team, Xavier was in the weeds when it came to Division I state title contenders heading into the tournament. The Gators still had some top-notch talent, but were ravaged by injuries (concussions, torn ligaments and broken bones), illness and transfers in a three-month period. The Gators had as many as 10 players out at one point in the regular season. Despite fielding its smallest team in years, the Gators’ patched-up defense held tough in shutting out Red Mountain and (Marana) Mountain View, then winning a huge semifinal matchup, 2-1, against high-powered Pinnacle. (Arguably) the best defender in the state, Kellie Peay, fittingly scored the lone goal in a 1-0 championship victory against Desert Vista to conclude this improbable run.

Campo Verde: After two consecutive exits in the quarterfinals, Campo Verde’s up-and-coming program officially arrived in Division III. New coach Rosanne Headley (second place in coach of the year consideration) inherited a strong group of juniors and seniors who were tired of coming up short, even with a school that only opened five years ago. After impressive regular season and tournament showings in beating Division II and I schools along the way, the No. 4-seeded Coyotes won three of four postseason matches — including the 1-0 win over Mingus in the championships match — by one goal, the latter of which became bittersweet when captain Meg McDowell suffered a torn ACL nine minutes into the match. After the Coyotes won the school’s first team sport state championship, McDowell limped around the field, trophy in hand.
