As the seasons and the leaves change, if you’re not in Arizona, there comes a time where fall sports end and the winter season begins. In Bullhead City, the fall sports have ended but not without great effort. The boys of Mohave football were able to create a playoff team that produced great success in the regular season, but eventually fell short. Their efforts were displayed and clear as success would come with persistent effort. Out of all the teams, the Mohave football team had the longest season as no other teams performed well enough to enter into the playoffs.
The Mohave High School volleyball team did not get the same opportunity as the boys of football. Their regular season success did not give them a position in the playoffs for Arizona High School volleyball. Their record doesn’t display the whole story as progression was made throughout the season. Teams that they had previously lost to, were getting beaten by the Thunderbirds of Mohave High School later on in the season. Lee Williams, a strongly developed team, would find difficulty in taking sets from the Thunderbirds. Their first matchup resulted in a harsh loss for Mohave High School. Their second matchup resulted in the same manner, but not without conflict brewing in between. In their first two sets of the game, they only lost by two and three, strongly affecting the Lee Williams gameplan and success. Their level of competition was raised throughout the season and their level of progression was clear, but their progression would come too late as early failures put them in a difficult situation to achieve a playoff spot.
The unwavering efforts displayed by both teams should not go unnoticed as their hard work and dedication allowed each team partial success in their sports. The Seniors of each sport have finished their last games and will now focus on the other parts of their last year of high school. Although they were unable to achieve their season goals, this season will stay in their memory until their kids participate in the same sports they did. Now that the fall season has ended, it is in the students’ interest to focus on the upcoming season which will bring more unforgettable moments.
