Holbrook opened the baseball season at the Fountain Hills Tournament, which began on Thursday. The Roadrunners were slated to face Camp Verde and Fountain Hills in two Thursday games, and matchup today with Apache Junction would determine the rest of their schedule for today and Saturday.
Last season new head Coach Brady Pond took his team to a 13-14 record, which included a state tournament bid where they lost in the opening round to Morenci.
Seniors currently on the roster this year include Ben Nafziger, Devin Nez, Adyran Fulton and Nikko Ferniza. Juniors are Lanny Newton-Pender, Buddy Wagoner, Carlos Quintana and Logan Tsinijinnie. They are joined by sophomores Scottie Gishie, James Ramirez, Michael O’Brien, Julian Garcia, Trevor Barton, Alex Haussman and Nick Robinson. Cade Maestas, and Tristan Baldanado are the two freshmen on the squad at this point.
Holbrook will host Show Low on Tuesday, March 4, and Joseph City the following afternoon.
