Sabino won the class 3A state title while Nogales won the class 4A state title at a doubleheader at Hi Corbett Field.

In the opener, the Sabercats rallied from three runs behind to defeat Sahuarita, 6-4. Preston Clifford pitched a complete game for Mark Chandler's team.

"It feels amazing," said Clifford. "We knew we had a special team from the beginning of the year."

Also, Cienega repeated as the class 5 A state softball champion.
