Some of the biggest arguments between sports fans are due to the controversial calls made by officials of the game. Games are lost, seasons are ended and lots of heartache ensues due to the occasional misunderstood action of officials. The Pahrump Valley High School girls’ volleyball team’s season could arguably be considered one of these controversial games.
The Beatty volleyball team ended its season in the semifinal regional playoff game against Pahranagat Valley in 3 matches (25-7, 25-11 and 25-11).
The “After the Duel in the Desert” IMCA Modifieds race at the Pahrump Valley Speedway was a winner in every way, according to – everybody.
The Tonopah Muckers, the last Nye County team in football in post season, lost last Friday in Alamo to the Pahranagat Valley Panthers 60-6 (24-0, 46-0, 54-6, 60-6) in the Division IV state quarterfinals.
The Tonopah Muckers remain the only Nye County Division-4 school in volleyball still in the playoffs and will be going to the state title tourney as the number two seed.
Anytime the Pahrump Valley Trojans and Faith Lutheran Crusaders come together the sparks will fly. Last Saturday for the Southern Nevada Regional Championship when the two women soccer teams came together, it was no different.
The Tonopah High school Lady Muckers volleyball team could not repeat the great feat of last year, when they beat the Pahranagat Valley Panthers for the state title. This year in a game, which decided the League title they lost in four (16-25, 25-20, 17-25 and 16-25) at home in an intense and hard-fought game (1-3).
Runners looking for a running challenge, but finding events like Tough Mudder too hard on the body might find a Ragnar relay race is more up your alley.
One more game and the Lady Trojans soccer team are on their way to the final four for the state title, but first they will play Faith Lutheran for the regional title on Nov. 9 at Heritage Park at 10 a.m.
