FREE! WED. DEC. 1, 2010 Vol. 7 Issue #120 PLEASE TAKE ONE N�� O�����! Scholars’ Academy STARS are Quartzsite State Champions! Submitted by Scholars’ Academy On Saturday, November 20, 2010, the STARS travelled to Phoenix, Arizona to play in the Charter Athletic Associa- tion (CAA) State Championship Football game against Scottsdale Prep Academy. The game had a tough start with tremendous de- fense and offense on both sides. Scholars’ had already played and beat Scottsdale once this season, so this game was redemption for Scottsdale and they were not go- ing to give it up easily. Dodging and breaking through seven defensive players, senior Miguel Maldonado made a 50- yard scoring run to tie up the game. The game went into over- time with a score of 24-24 at the end of the 4th quarter. Not just once, not twice, but triple over- time! Which was history mak- ing for the CAA. Everyone was on their feet during overtime as Scottsdale would score; Schol- ars’ would score also. Scottsdale would make the 2-point conver- sion, Scholars’ would too! Scholars’ won with the final 2-point conversion after mak- ing two touchdowns during overtime! The final score ended up Scholars’ - 40, Scottsdale - 38. Tears of joy and exhaustion rolled down the faces of the play- ers and coaches when the game finally ended. The CAA director, Randy Baum presented The Scholars’ Academy STARS with a beautiful trophy as the 2010 1A CAA State Football Champions! CAA also recognized the player of the year and that award was given to sophomore, #35 Austin Smith. Coach Marcus Dickson received the 2010 Coach of the Year award. The Scholars’ Academy would like to thank all of the parents and community members for their support of this year’s foot- ball season and of their school. Scholars’ ended this year’s sea- son undefeated as State Champi- ons and they are looking forward to another winning season next year. GO STARS!
