The Cowboys won their second championship in a row after beating the Rams 18-1 and the Big Park Coyotes 4-2.Both teams won the Verde Valley Athletic Association Baseball and Softball tournaments on Saturday, April 27. The boys beat Big Park 4-2 in the final game at West Sedona School while the girls beat Mayer 15-1 at Oak Creek School.

Both teams dominated the first games of each tournament.

The baseball team faced the Clarkdale-Jerome Mingus Rams and scored six runs in each of the three innings while allowing just one run by the Rams in an 18-1 rout. The Cowboys were in position to score more runs, but a six-run limit per inning was in place.

Just like last year, the Cowboys faced Big Park in the championship game after Big Park beat West Sedona School 15-0 in round one.

The game was a pitchers dual as Ryan Cain of the Cowboys and Randy Rodriguez of the Coyotes were both throwing fire.
