Gallego Fine Arts Intermediate, a fourth-through-eighth grade school, has captured the Sunnyside Unified School Disrict Middle School softball championship.

Gallego defeated Challenger 10-8 in five innings in the championship game played at Desert View High School on Tuesday night.

The Wildcats, who went unbeaten in their season, rallied behind home runs hit by Ashley Rosthenhausler and Carissa Palomarez.

The Rosthenhausler and Palomarez families are synonymous with success in the Sunnyside School District.

My brother Andy Morales has documented Joe Palomarez as the patriarch of the Palomarez family and Sammy Rosthenhausler, another legendary Southern Arizona sports figure and his family.
