Improving to 2-0 and getting all their players time on the court, the Panthers cruised past the Rockets 3-0 in a 4A Conference match on Thursday in Phoenix.

The match also gave Coconino, which ended its two-game regular-season road stint, the chance to toy with rotations.

The Panthers, who were led offensively by hitters Dana Parker and Lauren Touchstone and setter Brooke Parker, are slated to play the Goldwater Volleyball Festival starting Friday at Barry Goldwater High School in Phoenix.

Kendall Haylett played a big role on defense, leading the Panthers in digs.

Coconino plays host for the first time this season next Thursday, as the Sunrise Mountain Mustangs come to town for a 6 p.m. match.

NORTHLAND PREP 3, BOURGADE CATHOLIC 2

Winning their second five-set match of the week, the Northland Prep Spartans (2-0) handed the Bourgade Catholic Golden Eagles (0-3) a loss Thursday night in Phoenix.

The Spartans will host Basis Flagstaff (0-2) for their first home match of the season on Wednesday, set to begin at 6 p.m.

SWIMMING

Flagstaff High School and North High School opened their swimming and diving seasons with their annual dual meet at the Flagstaff High School Natatorium.

The boys 100 breaststroke was highlighted by a close finish with North's Joshua Jacobson out-touching Flagstaff's Abe Sosa by .06 seconds. On the girls side, freshman sensation Pearl Himelick won both the 200 individual medley and the 100 breaststroke.

In the end, Flagstaff prevailed, 111-47 on the girls side and 92-67 on the boys side.

"I'm pleased with how we raced today," Flagstaff head coach John Lowe said. "The team's fitness is improving, and this meet serves as a great start to our season."

Flagstaff continues their schedule on Tuesday at home versus Bradshaw Mountain.
