Pahrump has a fencing club? That’s usually the general reaction when the subject comes up, but the town really does have one and it has been around for at least two years. There may only be three in the class, but it exists nevertheless.
The fall season had five Pahrump teams getting ready for the playoffs and a few unknowns. The Tonopah team was thinking repeat and so were the Lady Trojans soccer team.

Some of the best football is always played at the end of the season when the playoffs are on the line. This was the case when the San Francisco 49ers faced off with a hapless Atlanta Falcons team who had nothing to lose and they were seeking revenge for last year’s loss to the 49ers in the playoffs.
The final minutes were ticking off and with just 2:56 remaining in the game the Lady Trojans basketball team had just taken a fragile 30-29 lead. They took the lead and edged ever so closely to victory when Shayla Dance made a clutch jumper to make it 34-30 at the 2:00 minute mark. It took Alyssa Murphy to then ice the game. She came to the line and sunk two free throws in a row to make the final score 36-30 with just 52 seconds left on the clock.
