From the "Arizona Republic" on Friday, March 10.  With some recent rainouts and
some early season tournaments, the team records may seem inconsistent.

5A
1.  Tucson Flowing Wells (6-0)
2.  Phoenix Desert Vista (8-1-1)
3.  Scottsdale Desert Mountain (6-0)
4.  Scottsdale Horizon (4-1)
5.  Tucson Salpointe Catholic (4-4)
6.  Avondale Westview (12-1)
7.  Tempe Corona del Sol (4-2)
8.  Tucson Rincon (5-1)
9.  Glendale Deer Valley (5-5)
10. Mesa Mountain View (6-3)

Pitching seems to be the story in 5A so far as Desert Vista SR Sarah Pauley
(Texas A&M bound) has already broken her school record for strikeouts with
125K's so far this year in just 68 innings.  In a 15-inning game with Corona
(14 innings one day - suspended due to darkness - completed two days later)
Pauley allowed 7 hits and threw 20 K's for the 1-0 win.

Horizon SR Carol Forbes (San Jose State bound) is 3-0 so far with 2 no-hitters
(1 a perfect game) and a 1-hitter.  Flowing Wells has 3 excellent pitchers in
SR Becky Linhart, JR Ashley Monceaux and FR Desiree Williams.

4A
1.  Phoenix Greenway (4-0)
2.  Tucson Sahuaro (11-1)
3.  Glendale Cactus (9-1)
4.  Peoria Centennial (4-0)
5.  Phoenix Moon Valley (2-0)
6.  Tucson Desert View (7-4)
7.  Scottsdale Chaparral (1-2)
8.  Peoria Sunrise Mountain (2-0)
9.  Glendale Apollo (1-2)
10. Scottsdale Saguaro (1-1)

Many of the teams in both divisions will be playing in the Bullhead City
Tournament of Champions this coming Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
