CAMP VERDE-Basketball teams in Flagstaff couldn't get out of town because of weather, so they didn't make it to the Verde Valley for some scheduled games. Coconino boys basketball was supposed to play at Camp Verde last week, but the games were canceled.
No worries, because this week should be pretty big for Camp Verde sports, weather permitting.
First, the Camp Verde boys and girls basketball teams will host Prescott Tuesday, a much bigger school with good basketball teams at the varsity levels.
The Lady Badgers are coming off a 69-28 win over Mingus. It should be a great challenge for the Camp Verde girls basketball team who are one of the top teams in their division.
The Prescott boys basketball team generally produces a strong team and should be a great challenge for the Camp Verde boys as well.
The Camp Verde boys and girls basketball teams both will head to the Round Valley tournament at the end of the week where they'll face great teams from the White Mountain area.
For the biggest sporting event hosted by Camp Verde this year, the wrestling team will host the 18th annual Verde Duals Dec. 9-11. Boatloads of teams are coming. They include Empire, River Valley, Tuba City, Antelope, Sunnyslope, San Manuel, Bradshaw Mtn., Holbrook, Cactus Shadows, Chino Valley, Copper Canyon, Peoria, Marana Mtn. View, Winslow, and St. Johns.
Camp Verde will also host the Yavapai County Middle School Dual Championship Thursday, Dec. 8 at Camp Verde High School.
It's a big week for Camp Verde sports, so get out and support the Cowboys!
