Wickenburg High School’s cross country and swim teams will start their seasons with home meets this week.
In his 34th year as coach, Doug Clementz has prepared a half dozen runners to compete against a few teams beginning at 5 p.m. today (Wednesday, Sept. 4) at the Wickenburg Country Club golf course.
Then starting at 4 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 5, Coach Ronn Tillapaugh will pit his dozen swimmers against Anthem and Cactus at the Coffinger Park pool in downtown Wickenburg.
The Lady Wranglers volleyball team, after opening its season at home earlier this week, will travel to Kingman Academy Thursday for a 3A West Region contest before returning home for a non-region match against visiting Sedona Red Rock Monday night.
The Wranglers’ junior varsity football team, after its 20-8 victory against visiting Parker last week, will make the long trip to Safford this Thursday and then will visit Chino Valley at 6 p.m. next Wednesday.
