TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The champs are still on top of the throne
Three days after Nogales suffered a 15-12 home loss to Catalina Foothills, the Apaches returned the favor to win the game that matters most.
Right now anyway.
Top-ranked Nogales beat the #2 Falcons 8-1 Friday night to win the Conference 4A Kino Region championship.
The Apaches (24-4, 7-1) got a superb performance on the mound from junior German Fajardo.
Their offense pounded out ten hits including a home run from Alec Acevedo.
The loss snapped a seven-game winning streak for Catalina Foothills (19-7, 7-2).
Nogales will begin defense of their state championship when the Conference 4A state tournament gets underway next Saturday (April 28).
