ON DECK: Pitcher of the Year
The Kofa softball team was quietly one of the best in the region this year, and snuck into the playoffs as a No. 24 seed in the last week of the season.
Unfortunately for the Kings, their season came to a close Saturday when they suffered a first-round lost to Desert Mountain 6-2.
After talking with Kofa coach Emma Morrison after that game, I came away from the conversation with a confirmation of what I thought was true: Sarai Camacho is the best pitcher in Yuma.
Inserted into the pitching circle full time about a half-dozen games into the season, Camacho has racked up strikeouts and ground balls all year long, giving her team a chance to win.
Even when she's not missing bats, she routinely retires 12, 13 or 14 batters in a row.
Voting for All-Region teams is just around the corner, and I know at least one of my ballots is already cast.
