Schultz, Marshall are top players of year




Girls Player of the Year

WHO: Skye Schultz, Sr., Flowing Wells High School

WHAT SHE DID: Schultz had 28 goals and 19 assists in her senior year, leading the Flowing Wells soccer team to the Class 4A Division I state championship over Sahuaro. She logged 123 goals in her high school career.

She will attend the University of Texas at El Paso on a soccer scholarship this year.

QUOTABLE: “I am really flattered about the whole thing,” Schultz said. “I’m still in shock about how we . . . came together to win the state championship in my senior year.”

Girls Coach of the Year

WHO: Dave Kruszewski, Sahuaro

WHAT HE DID: Led Sahuaro to its first state final game in 25 years. His Cougars finished undefeated in the 4A Kino Region, beating Sabino, Cienega and eventual state champion Flowing Wells.

QUOTABLE: “I was very pleased with the season,” said Kruszewski. “Sahuaro had some great teams, but for whatever reason they weren’t able to make it to the final game. This year’s team expected to be (in the state finals). That was the difference.”

“(At the team’s first practice) I told them, ‘Feb. 14 (the date of the title game) – this is the team that is going to take you there.’ ”

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
