Sahuaro moved to 8-2 overall and 5-0 in power-ranking matches thanks to a 3-1 win at Catalina Foothills Wednesday night. The loss dropped the Falcons to 3-3 on the year with plenty of time left in the season to gain ground.

The Falcons are 2-0 in the 5A Southern Region and Sahuaro is 1-0 in 5A Sonoran Region but region finish does not guarantee a post-season berth under the rules of the conference. Instead, all 64 teams are battling it our for a top-24 finish based on ranking and the initial AIA rankings will not be released until March 26. Teams ranked 9-24 at the end of the season will take part in the 5A Conference Play-In Tournament slated for May 2…
