GRAND CANYON, Ariz. - Death covers the walls in the Phantom's Gymnasium. The Phantom mascot looks like the Grim Reaper as he holds a large sickle to go along with an ominous looking red cloak. On Jan. 9, the Phantom mascot was also adorned with a festive grass skirt because the senior class decorated "Death" with a complete fiesta outfit to go along with the Homecoming theme of "Fiesta in the Jungle."
It was a fiesta indeed as the Phantoms swept the Spartans in the four games (Girls JV, Boys JV, Girls Varsity, and Boys Varsity) on Jan. 9.
The Lady Phantoms took care of business in a lop-sided victory. The overmatched Spartans from Ash Fork had trouble against the bigger, faster, stronger Phantoms.
"We played our game; we did what we were supposed to do," said Lady Phantoms Coach Dan Lopez.
The Phantoms had a team effort in the 52-5 win, but were led by Juniors Madison Berry and Jordanne Jarrell who had 13 points and 10 points respectively.
Led by first-year coach Dennis Booth, The Junior Varsity Lady Phantoms should also be commended as they improved to 5-0 on the season. The future looks bright for the Lady Phantoms as the JV squad has won 19 of their last 20 games going back to last season.
The Lady Phantoms improve to 11-6 overall 4-0 in conference. They remain in first place in the 1A West Division. Their next home game is on Jan. 21 against Shonto.
