Run for funds
Cottonwood's track and cross country teams held their second annual Colt Stampede 5K at Wheeler Farm last Saturday. The race was used as a fundraiser for the teams, and as a way to promote running among youth in the neighborhoods around Cottonwood High. Colts runner Elvis Machado was the overall winner of the race with a time of 17 minutes and 59 seconds
"I don't even know if I did that back in Little League, yet alone in a high school game. I felt really good and comfortable up there (at the plate), and I just saw the ball well and was able to put some good swings on it and hit it pretty hard." — Juan Diego designated hitter Jordan Cox, on driving in five runs in the Soaring Eagle's 11-6 win over Carbon last Friday.
