Jim Love, a longtime member of the Flowing Wells school board, stepped down from his position on Wednesday.

Love, 78, said he was scaling back volunteer work in the community, though he planned to continue commuting three days a week to his job as a respiratory therapist in Casa Grande.

“I love working with my patients,” Love said.

Love, who was first elected to the Flowing Wells Governing Board in 2000, said he worked to help at-risk kids and students with special needs.

The district, which includes neighborhoods near Ina Road between Camino del Oeste and Shannon Road and stretches southeast to Grant Road and Fairview Avenue, has many pockets of poverty.

Love said he was especially proud of the construction of Sentinel Peak High School, designed for struggling students, near the intersection of Thornydale and Ina roads. The new school replaced a collection of aging modular buildings that “had an odor to them.”

“You could paint as much as you wanted and change the carpet, but that smell was still there,” Love said.

Love said he worked to help underserved kids in the district because “as a young man, I had a really rough, bad childhood.”

He recalled that after his parents split up when he was about five years old, his mother placed him and his two sisters in a Houston children’s home for seven years. After that, his mother sent him to Tucson to live with his father. But his father’s new family also fell apart and he was on his own, homeless after his junior year of high school. He dropped out of Amphi and joined the Navy at age 19, serving in the Vietnam War. When he got back stateside, he earned his GED before going to college.

“I’ve been through it,” he said. “I understand what it’s like to have a drunk step-parent who comes home and beats up on people. I know all about that kind of crap.”

Love said that as a school board member, he kept an eye out for problems.

“You see a need, there's got to be a way to take care of it,” Love said. “It has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with those kids.”

Former state lawmaker Ethan Orr said Love looked out for the students in the district.

“Jim did everything he did for the students and he’d work with anyone on either side of the aisle to get it done,” Orr said.

Love, who received a Lifetime Achievement Award last year from the Arizona School Board Association, remembered once surveying the 35 players on the varsity football team. He said only seven of them said they got hugs at home, only three said they had dinner with their family at home and eight said they had enough food at home to eat each day.

After he heard that, Love and his wife started preparing and serving meals before football games.

“She would feed them a meal before each and every game,” Love said. “We’d cook 157 meals a week.”

Love said he decided to step down from the school board earlier this year after a conversation with his son while on vacation in France.

“After 23 years and doing all the stuff that I did and working with legislators up in Phoenix and getting bills passed to get extra money for our special needs kids and all this kind of stuff, it was just time to stop running myself ragged and just work my three days at the hospital a week and take my trips,” he said.

Pima County Superintendent of Schools Dustin Williams has invited any qualified candidate interested in serving on the Flowing Wells Governing Board to apply to his office.

Anyone interested in serving should submit an affidavit of qualification and candidate appointment questionnaire by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13. Find an application packet at www.schools.pima.gov/elections. Applicants can turn in the packet at the Pima County School Superintendent’s Office, 200 N. Stone Ave., or email it to matthew.stamp@pima.gov. The seat will be on the November 2024 general election ballot for a new four-year term.

Flowing Wells, Arizona legend Robbie Moen returns to Southern Arizona to coach at Rio Rico

Robbie Moen’s long and winding coaching odyssey after completing his Arizona baseball career almost 30 years ago has brought the Flowing Wells High School and Wildcat legend back to Southern Arizona.

He will be the athletic director and a physical education teacher at Coatimundi Middle School in Rio Rico and will join Jeff Scurran’s coaching staff this fall at Rio Rico High School as the wide receivers coach while also working with the punters and kickers.

After an 18-year background as hitting coach at Kansas State and Loyola Marymount and scout with the Tampa Bay Rays, he moved to Frisco, Texas (a suburb of Dallas) in 2016 to be close to his daughters Payton and Paige, who moved to that area with Moen’s ex-wife.

For the last six years, Moen coached softball in Frisco for the Frozen Ropes Softball Academy and at Aubrey (Texas) Braswell High School as the junior varsity coach. He also served as the hitting coach for the Russian national baseball team in 2017.

“I think baseball or softball will be in the future at Rio Rico — I don’t know if it will be this year but it will be part of the future,” Moen said.

Moen returned to Southern Arizona three weeks ago, and he and his wife Mila now reside in Green Valley.

“I’m excited to come back because there’s a lot of opportunities not just for me, but for my wife, who’s an aqua aerobics, yoga and pilates instructor,” Moen said. “There’s gonna be a lot of opportunities to carry her business from Texas down to here. She’ll have to start over with new clients, but it’s a great environment to do it in.”

Moen’s hire with Scurran reunites the two from when Scurran served as Flowing Wells’ offensive coordinator in 1987, Moen’s sophomore season with the Caballeros.

Moen completed one of the most storied high school baseball and football careers in Southern Arizona history his senior season at Flowing Wells when he was an all-state selection in both sports.

He went from being a quarterback as a freshman to a wide receiver/defensive back and punter from his sophomore year until only two games remained in his senior season when coach John Kashner used him at quarterback because of his athleticism out of the Wing T offense.

Nobody at Flowing Wells has topped his five touchdowns in a game that he achieved against Rincon/University in 1987.

“Coach Scurran asked if I could help him in his first year at Rio Rico,” Moen said of the coaching legend who has not coached locally at the high school level since 2018 while at Catalina Foothills.

“For me to make this move, especially uprooting from Texas with my wife, it had to make financial sense and Rio Rico made it happen.”

David Verdugo, whom Moen played football against while Verdugo was a standout at CDO, helped make it happen, according to Moen.

Verdugo is the superintendent of the Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District. Rio Rico is the lone high school in the district.

“David Verdugo wants me to kind of get involved and help grow the baseball and softball programs and keep our athletes at our school (Rio Rico),” Moen said. “Right now, what’s happening is that two years ago, I was told, six of the nine starters on the Nogales baseball team that made it to the state championship were supposed to be at Rio Rico.

“They go to our middle school because it’s such a good academic school and they enjoy it. And then they go to Sahuarita or they go to Nogales High School. So my job being at the middle school is to help get to know those students, develop the relationship at an early age and then let them know that, ‘Hey, these are going to be your coaches, myself included, when you get to high school,’ and hopefully that keeps them from leaving.”

Moen said he will stress to students that, “I’m not just a football guy who’s trying to help baseball and softball. I’m really a baseball and softball guy that’s helping football because that’s my background.”

“That’s what I know the most, but I can coach football; it is just a different skill set to learn,” he continued. “We need to let the kids know that, ‘Hey, I can coach and I’ll be there when you move up the ladder and get into high school. You’re gonna see the guy who’s been there with you.'”

Nearby schools such as Nogales, Sahuarita and Walden Grove will likely find it more difficult to attract students in the Rio Rico area with Moen coaching with Scurran and also leading either the softball or baseball program with the Hawks.

Moen is known for his fierce competitive nature.

“His greatest attribute was he loved to prove people wrong,” said longtime Tucson-area baseball coach Len Anderson, who coached Moen at Flowing Wells and also had stints at Pima College and CDO.

“Robbie was the baseball version of a gym rat. He was coachable and wanted to learn, but the thing I remember most about him, he was full of fire. He never took an at-bat off. You can’t say that about a lot of players.”

A member of Arizona’s All-Century Team (1900 to 1999) in baseball, Moen finished his Wildcat career second in at-bats (843) and doubles (63), third in hits (325) and total bases (465) and fifth in RBIs (185) while playing for Jerry Kindall, Jerry Stitt and Jim Wing.

Moen is also on Arizona’s Baseball Legends Plaza Wall of Fame along with former teammate George Arias, a Pueblo High School alum.

Moen and Arias played golf together on Tuesday before Moen watched the Flowing Wells Little League All-Stars (8-10) play against Tanque Verde in the District 5 tournament at Mehl Park. Moen’s former baseball teammate with the Caballeros, Dave Laguna, has a son (Dominic) who plays for Flowing Wells Little League.

“It’s been good seeing people like George, Dave, one of my best friends at Flowing Wells, Coach Stitt and Coach Wing, as well as Coach Anderson and Steve Reinhardt, my high school baseball coaches at Flowing Wells,” Moen said. “Now, I’m back with Coach Scurran in football and that will be great.

“From that aspect, it has been really good getting back and seeing a lot of friends and catching up.”

Another bonus returning to Southern Arizona for an extended period for the first time since his Wildcat career ended in 1993 is being close to his daughter Payton, who will be a senior at Arizona this school year.

“I’ll get a chance to see her a little bit more and then obviously, I’ll be here when she graduates. That’s pretty exciting,” Moen said.

Moen added that the decision to move from Frisco was “kind of nerve-wracking with anxiety involved,” because some of the ties they developed there.

“I think once we got in here, it’s helped a lot because we’ve found a place to live,” Moen said. “I’m getting a lot of paperwork done for school. I’m getting a head start on football learning the actual plays and what I’m going to be doing. When the school year starts, I won’t have all of those things to worry about.

“I can just move right into my job.”

Flowing Wells senior Navine Mallon can play either at wing or power forward, defend any position with her agility and rebound well against post players because of her physicality.

She can do it all, including outscore the opposition in a game.

That happened Wednesday night in the sixth-seeded Lady Caballeros’ 59-26 victory over No. 11 Kingman Lee Williams in a 4A state first round game at Flowing Wells’ East Gym.

Mallon finished with 29 points that included two 3-pointers, a couple of putbacks and many attacks to the basket, helping Flowing Wells improve to 20-8.

“I knew we had to be confident and just play because this is (potentially) our last home game,” said Mallon, who was chosen by 4A Kino coaches as the region’s co-Player of the Year with Salpointe’s Taliyah Henderson.

“I thought my team played really well together. We shared the ball. I feel like I did what I could and scored.”

— Javier Morales (@JavierJMorales) February 16, 2023

Mallon can take with her to Westmont College at Santa Barbara, Calif., the memories of reaching the 5A state championship game the last two seasons and now another run into a state tournament.

Flowing Wells, classified to the 4A by the AIA before the school year, will play at No. 3 Glendale Deer Valley (16-7) in the quarterfinals on Tuesday at 7 p.m.

If the Lady Caballeros win that game and No. 7 Poston Butte upsets No. 2 Flagstaff, they can play at Flowing Wells one more time in the semifinals Feb. 28.

“She’s just a do-it-all kid, man,” Flowing Wells coach Michael Perkins said of Mallon, who now has 1,243 points and more than 900 rebounds in her career. “You can put her outside and set screens for her and shoot the 3.

“You can pound the ball inside and post her up. She just does all the hustle plays, grabbing offensive boards and putting it back. She’s just so smart; she’s in the right place at the right time. Man, easy to coach when you’ve got a kid like that.”

Even easier when talented kids complement her so well.

Senior post player Sydney Capen, who earlier this week committed to Wilmington (Ohio) College, had five blocked shots by halftime. She altered many other shots inside throughout the game, a significant factor for Lee Williams (24-6) shooting only 10 of 42 (23.4 percent) from the field.

Ayanna De Jesus, a power forward who added to Flowing Wells’ dominating presence inside, contributed nine points.

Flowing Wells set the tone for the entire game when it took a 20-4 lead late in the first quarter. Mallon had nine points and Lee Williams was 1 of 10 from the field with six turnovers at that point.

Sophomore Nevaeh Urenda, thrust into the starting point guard role this season, spearheaded Flowing Wells’ defense on the perimeter scoring most of her 12 points in transition off steals and turnovers.

Lee Williams finished with 28 turnovers, also more than its point total. That’s well over its average of 17.2 entering the game.

Urenda played considerably last year as a backup for Leamsi Acuña and she is using the time last year going all the way to the 5A state championship game to her advantage.

“I think it will help with my mentality,” Urenda said of her playoff experience. “If we’re ahead in the game, keeping the lead up. If we’re losing, kind of keeping the energy to kind of come back.

“Playoffs are a whole different game than seasons are. That knowledge from last year will help me a lot this year.”

Flowing Wells has the motivation to get over the hump after losing to Goodyear Millennium in the state championship games the last two seasons.

No Millennium ahead of Perkins’ team this time, but the Lady Caballeros have plenty of challenges ahead, including on the road Tuesday against Deer Valley (which went 10-0 in its region).

“I firmly believe in experience (in the state tournament),” said Perkins, who coached Flowing Wells to the 2007-08 state title. “Kids with experience know how to play. It usually gets you a deep run into the playoffs.

“Love the fact the kids have been there, they’ve felt the emotions, they felt the travel, the packed gyms, the different ball, all that kind of stuff. They are embracing it right now.”

Trayanna Crisp, the star guard who returned from PHH Prep this season to pursue her third title, has a designated spot for her memorabilia, too. This Christmas, her dad bought her a case to keep her rings and nets in.

Such is life at Millennium, which won its fourth straight Class 5A girls high school basketball state championship Tuesday night, beating Flowing Wells 46-28.

“I’m an emotional person, but I don’t express it well,” Thomas said. “I’m a little bit numb at the moment and a little overwhelmed but thrilled to be a part of it.”

In the regular season, the Tigers experienced uncharacteristic struggles, finishing at 17-9. As such, they earned the No. 3 seed, the underdog against Flowing Wells, which came into Tuesday at 29-1, with the state’s top seed in the 5A conference.

From the start, the play on the court at Arizona Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum portrayed a different story.

Flowing Wells scored the night’s first five points, before Millennium responded with a 10-0 run to close the first quarter. In that run, the Tigers established the tone for the night, forcing Flowing Wells into tough contested shots.

And, even when the Caballeros got their typical looks at the rim, shots weren’t falling. On the night, juniors Navine Mallon and Leamsi Acuna — their top two scorers — combined to shoot 6 for 25.

“We wanted to make sure that Acuna didn’t get space,” Thomas said. “We know that (Mallon), between the two of them, trying to prevent them from being able to create. If they can’t create and we force other players to have to do that, we can have some success. So I thought it was a formula that panned out over time.”

Still, Millennium entered halftime up just 10 points. In last week’s semifinal against Peoria Sunrise Mountain, the Tigers gave up a 24-4 run out of halftime. To Thomas, it was the culmination of a worrying trend that had developed over the past month.

So, on Tuesday, his halftime message was simple.

“We’re known to be a team where we let teams come back,” Crisp said. “And (Thomas said), we need to embrace the fact that it’s 0-0 at halftime. Same score. We gotta go out with the same vengeance that we did the first quarter.”

The result? A third quarter in which Flowing Wells didn’t score a single point as Millennium stretched its lead to 38-15.

Six minutes into the Caballeros’ futile quarter, frustration boiled over. Acuna crossed a player over, driving into the lane in search of Flowing Wells’ first points when she was met by Crisp, who walled her up, wrestling the ball away and scoring a transition 3 on the other end.

Acuna watched from the floor before getting up and shoulder checking Millennium’s Elli Guiney off ball on the next possession. Although the potential technical foul went uncalled, it summed up Flowing Wells’ frustration.

On the other sideline, the only emotion was joy.
