Their lone loss came to 4A Del Sol 63-52 on Dec. 2.

“Our game energy and focus has been tremendous early in the season,” head coach Brian Bradshaw said. “We have players that want to compete and are motivated to win. We are also playing with confidence and finishing games.”

Impressing their peers at the Holiday Classic, senior Julia Carmichael and junior Sophia Muelrath each made the all-tournament team for the Lady Eagles.

Defeating The Meadows, Carmichael filled up the stat sheet with 12 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and two steals, while Muelrath added 14 points, three assists and three blocks.

Adding depth, freshman Makenzie Martorano scored 11 points with eight rebounds and four steals against Lake Mead Christian Academy, while senior Mckenzye Trobiani added six points, seven rebounds and two steals against The Meadows.

“I can’t say enough about our depth,” Bradshaw said. “Because we can go eight to nine deep, it does allow us to play a more aggressive style.”

Looking to continue their winning ways, the Lady Eagles will host Cadence tonight, followed by a home game with Mater East on Friday.


Boulder City High School girls bowling kept their winning streak alive on Dec. 5, defeating Coral Academy, while the boys program suffered their first defeat of the season.

Off for Christmas break, the Eagles will resume play on Jan. 3 against Valley at Sam’s Town.


Results from Boulder City High School wrestling’s BC Duals were not made available at this time, but head coach Jim Cox did give some insight on his young team.

“We are a young team and our boys fought hard on Saturday,” Jim Cox said. “Our weaknesses were exposed by good opponents and we are grateful for that. It also fired us up to get back to work in the room to improve our wrestling process. The team is a great group of kids that are open and willing to learn. We are very excited to see the growth and progress of these wrestlers as the year rolls on.”

Getting back on the mat this weekend, the Eagles will head to the La Costa Canyon Dual in Encinitas, California.
