Beating Boulder City in the region tournament and advancing to the state tournament is an annual goal for the Pahrump Valley High School girls golf team. This year, Breanne Nygaard decided to make a little history in the process.
Add Pahrump Valley High School to the list of football teams that have made short work of Western this season.
There is no way to overstate how big Thursday night’s game between Valley and Pahrump Valley is. But I’ll try anyway.
Trojans Game Night
Nobody connected with the Pahrump Valley High School girls soccer team wanted to deal with tie-breaking scenarios.
Trojans wrestling won the Southern Nevada Division I-A Regional Championship last Friday and Saturday, in nearly 15 hours of action and passion-packed wrestling matches.
The Trojans finished league undefeated and league champs, and now the hard work begins. The Trojans travel to Boulder City High School for the Division I-A Southern Nevada Championships today. Action starts at 4 p.m. This meet determines which wrestlers will be sent to state.
Yes, the Trojans dropped another game to Western, both teams did. The Lady Trojans (2-17 overall, 0-12 Sunset League) lost to the Warriors (5-8, 3-8) 38-34. The Trojans boys (0-15, 0-12) followed with a disappointing 51-35 loss.
For the Lady Hornets basketball team, the season is winding down and it’s crunch time for them. The Lady Hornets (5-3 overall, 3-3 Division IV Southern) needed to beat Lund (3-6, 3-3) last week and didn’t. They lost 32-27.
The Trojans wrestling team finished the season undefeated in league and Sunset League Champions for the third consecutive time. Pahrump finished up their last match of the season by defeating Clark with 10 pins at home on Friday night to win 64-14. During the night, Clark won only three individual matches and had two pins and one match by decision.
The Lady Trojans lost a close one on Thursday against Sierra Vista in the final seconds of the game 39-37.
What a game. It was truly one of the best Super Bowls that I have ever seen. I had no doubt that the Seahawks would win in the end. Oh well, what do I know?
The Trojans have a long history of winning and going to state that goes back to the early days of 2000. This year the team will finish undefeated in league for the third year in a row and will send wrestlers to state. Rieger is in his 21st year coaching wrestling and he has one state title.
Karate students are focused and disciplined and to get there it takes the willingness to take some hard knocks and put in long hours of study. The fruits of their labor lead to better grades and better all-around citizens.
