HORIZON HONORS ACCEPTED & CELEBRATED THE GREAT KINDNESS CHALLENGE!

GRADES 5-6 BASEBALL UPDATE
Baseball
The Eagles had a great game Tuesday night! The boys came out ready to play and set themselves up for a great outing.  Eagles had lights out pitching from Maxwell T. and Zach S.  The tone was set when they got out of the first inning with no runs scored against.  They did this with help when Diego T. connected with Zach S. catching Grace Christian trying to steal 3rd base.  The Eagles first offensive series kept the momentum in our corner when Maxwell T. lead off with a solid hit for a triple.  Eagles followed up in additional innings with Home Runs by Nate D., Austin R. and Jack F. putting the game out of reach for Grace Christian.  

The Eagles will finish off their season TODAY (Friday, January 26th) at home against a very good Scottsdale Christian Team. The game will be at 3:30 at Desert Foothills Part. Come out and cheer them on! Go, Eagles!
