"My boys came out ahead and played at their best, and that's what won the games for us."Other team members are Alex Olsen, Jose Gutierrez, Cobey Grande, Giovani Garcia, Sammy Garcia, Edgar Camarillo, Emilio Garibay and Oscar Ron.The District 9 champions advanced to the 9-10 state tournament beginning July 17 in the Phoenix area.
