Kiko Romero and Luisa Chavez earn collegiate honors

Former Canyon del Oro standout Kiko Romero was named the No. 2 JUCO transfer by d1baseball after Romero transferred to the University of Arizona from Central Arizona.

Former Rio Rico standout guard Luisa Chavez was named ACCAC Division II Player of the Week after Chavez averaged 19 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.5 steals, 1.5 blocks after the Pima Aztecs picked up wins at Chandler-Gilbert Community College and Central Arizona College.

This list will be updated all year in an effort to recognize all former local prep stars who have gone on to achieve either academic and/or athletic awards at the next level. These are not high school awards but collegiate and professional recognitions. NOT CHAMPIONSHIPS.
