The Prescott Badgers opened up the playoffs with a first round victory sweep of 6-0, over the Millennium Tigers, at Prescott High School.

The match had some challenging match-ups, with Lauren Farley having to play three games to win 2-1. Farley dropped the first game, but did a great job to rally back and win the next two. Riley Crockett, Calli Naylor, and Lindsay Carter won 2-0, but had to stay on top of their opponents with single digit victories. All the higher seeds won their matches in round one. The quarterfinals are set for Tuesday night, semifinals on Wednesday, and the championship match will be at Cortez High School in Phoenix, on Thursday.

Coach Bobbi Yoder said, “This was a good first round win for our team tonight and helped prepare us for tomorrow’s second round matchup vs Verrado. We are entering Team State down one player, #3 Elle Long with an injury, so we have four players playing 1 position higher than they have during all of the regular season. These girls have definitely been working hard and have stepped up to the challenge and I am very proud of how they all performed tonight. Tomorrow nights match will start at 4 pm against #8 Verrado and will be no charge to get in so come out and cheer these girls as they compete to advance to the final 4.”

The Badgers will face the Verrado Vipers, whose only loss came back on August 31 to #3 Ironwood. Millennium ends their season at (7-8).
