The top-seeded Salpointe Lancers rode out to a 8-0 lead over No. 3 Canyon del Oro Monday night at Hillenbrand Stadium, on the University of Arizona campus, but the Dorados made things close. In the end, Salpointe (32-2) held on for a 10-7 victory in the 4A state championship game.

Canyon del Oro (33-4) and Salpointe met three times in the last five weeks and the Lancers won all three in the series so there is no question these two were the top two teams in the state with the Lancers bringing home their fourth straight championship, with no playoffs taking place in 2020 due to COVID restrictions…..
