Mountain Biking Finishes Season Strong

By James Nebrig

 

The TCP Mountain Biking team had a great final race down in the White Tanks Mountain Regional Park as they wrapped up their season.

348 racers competed in the dry desert sands as they represented their schools in fighting for the top spots in four divisions.  The racers representing TCP were seniors Eric Anderson and Kate DuBroy, juniors Toby Merz and Kim Zamora-Delgado, sophomores Kevin Anderson and Ethan Krafft, and freshman James Nebrig and Garrett Cummings.

Our sophomores led the way with Kevin Anderson in 3rd and Ethan Krafft in 12th.

Senior Eric Anderson also pulled off 12th place finish despite a flat tire!

This was the fifth and last race of the NICA season, so the racers now get to take part in the MBAA (Mountain Biking Association of Arizona) races during the spring.

Even though not all of our racers competed in this last race, all deserve equal praise. Good job to seniors Eric Anderson, Tyler Kuckuck, and Kate DuBroy; juniors Toby Merz, Kim Zamora-Delgado, Clayton Evans, and Max Baker; sophomores Ethan Krafft, Kevin Anderson, and Hudson Coggins; and freshmen Peyton Kuckuck, Garrett Cummings, and James Nebrig.

We also had some riders come in with impressive season overalls, with sophomores Kevin Anderson and Ethan Krafft in 5th and 7th, respectively, and senior Eric Anderson in 12th.

Coach Krafft’s daughter, Ellie Krafft, medaled in all 3 of her races! Congratulations to Ellie, and TCP looks forward to her joining the school team in a few years.

Finally, the team would like to thank its coaches Jonathan Krafft and Ed Marman, as well as the parent riders Mr. Anderson and Mrs. Nebrig for helping out all season.

The TCP Mountain Biking team would also like to thank their generous sponsors, without whom they would be unable to compete.  This year’s sponsors are High Gear Bike Shop, Patterson Orthodontics, Horizon Dental, Watters Garden Center, Yavapai Pediatrics, Better Deal Printing, Prescott Import Car Service, and Premier Eye Center.

Softball: The End or Not?

Tri-City Prep High School may not have a softball season this year. Being a small school, it is difficult to always find the money to fund sports, clubs, and other various activities. Tri-City’s softball team will not be meeting this year, unless enough tax credit and donations are given before the softball season. Many of last year’s players are looking for tax credits and hope to be able to play this year. They hope that after such a successful season last year that we could come back and try to do even better. It was disheartening for them to hear that it can’t happen, but the team is trying to find a way. If anyone is interested in supporting the softball team, talk to Mrs. Winters.

The TCP Mountain Bike Team had its strongest outing yet as the NICA (National Interscholastic Cycling Association) tour came to Prescott on Sunday, September 25th for the hardest race of the year at White Spar Campground.

327 racers from all over Arizona endured the grueling course. This race featured “The Wall,” the toughest hill that racers will face all season as they fight for the top spots in the four divisions.  The racers representing TCP were seniors Eric Anderson, Tyler Kuckuck and Kate DuBroy; juniors Toby Merz, Kim Zamora, Clayton Evans and Max Baker; sophomores Kevin Anderson, Ethan Krafft and Hudson Coggins; and freshmen James Nebrig and Payton Kuckuck.

TCP’s sophomores led the way again with, Ethan Krafft on the podium in 5th place and Kevin Anderson in 7th place. In addition, senior Eric Anderson placed 9th in his race.

Ethan Krafft’s sister, Ellie Krafft, placed 4th in the middle school 6th grade girls’ race, which was her first ever competition. TCP looks forward to Ellie joining the Tri-City team in a few more years.
