Zach Malis became the first athlete from Desert Christian to sign with an NCAA Division I program on Tuesday morning. The baseball standout signed with Grand Canyon and he is also the reigning Southern Arizona "Small School" Baseball Player of the Year thanks to both his bat and his pitching arm.
No. 1 Bagdad defeated No. 4 Gilbert Christian 60-24 Saturday night at Phoenix North Canyon High School to punch their second straight trip to the final. I guess it goes without saying that No. 2 Mogollon defeated No. 3 Pima 28-12 in the other semifinal game held earlier in the day.
