Pusch Ridge improved to 4-4 on the year thanks to an 11-1 win over Amphitheater Friday at home. The loss dropped Amphitheater to 0-7 but the Panthers are looking down the road to a very winnable region race.

“This team likes to have more fun than my previous teams but they are also the closest and they play together a lot more as a family,” said Amphitheater head coach Brandon Kuhn. “As they have seen from the last two years in our region, the race is wide open and anything can happen. That’s our focus, to get better so we can compete in the games that matter in our region.”
