Prep notebook: Palo Verde’s Hall to play in Hawaii all-star game

Palo Verde High School football star Adam Hall will be changing his scheduled official recruiting visit to USC.

Hall has accepted an invitation to play in the Dec. 12 Hawaii All-Star Football Classic, a football game pitting the best high school players with island connections, including University of Hawaii recruits, and selected players from the mainland.

Hall, who had 38 touchdowns this season and ended one of Tucson’s best high school football careers last week with a Class 4A Division II quarterfinal loss to Santa Rita, plans to reschedule the USC visit for later in December.

Hall made an official visit last week to California and will make his official visit to Arizona during the Dec. 6 game with Arizona State. He still has two more schools he can officially visit, but he hasn’t decided yet.

McClure headed to Louisville

Catalina Foothills senior Morgan McClure capped off her successful prep golf career last week by signing a national letter of intent to play college golf at Louisville.

McClure’s seventh-place individual finish at last month’s 4A Division I girls state championship helped her team to a second-consecutive state runner-up finish.

As a sophomore in 2006, McClure helped Foothills to a state title.

“Morgan is a tremendous find for us,” Louisville coach Kelly Rothberg said on the school’s Web site. “She is the first West Coast player at Louisville.”

Michaelson makes impact

Salpointe Catholic graduate Jade Michaelson (2006), a redshirt sophomore setter at the University of New Mexico, was named this week to the Mountain West All-Conference volleyball team.

“She’s had a great year,” UNM coach Jeff Nelson said on the school’s Web site. “The setter runs the team and she’s only a sophomore.”

Michaelson averages 10.98 assists per set this season, good for second in the Mountain West Conference and 27th nationally.

Ex-Panther honored

Amphi grad and former Pima Community College soccer star Kaylen Jackson, now a junior forward for Grand Canyon University, was named honorable mention All-Pacific West Conference this week.

Jackson led GCU with 17 points this year, including a pair of game-winning goals.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
