WILLIAMS - Williams Team No. 1 improved their record to 4-0 on the season playing three games in Flagstaff Friday and Saturday.

On Friday, Williams Team No. 1 took on Flagstaff Team No. 1 coming out on top with a final score of 24-2. Joaquin Salaz pitched for Williams recording seven strikeouts. Coty Baxter, Kohl Nixon and Ethan Berry all went five for five at the plate and Jorge Davalos and Joaquin Salaz went four for five at the plate.

On Saturday, Williams Team No. 1 took on Mt. Elden Team No. 1 again dominating their competition and winning 17-0. Kohl Nixon pitched for Williams facing 20 batters and recording 14 strikeouts. Baxter, Nixon, Berry, Davalos and Salaz put on another hitting display going 23 for 25 at the plate.

Williams No.1 next faced Mt. Elden No. 2 with a final score of Williams 19-Mt. Elden 2.

Coach Herman Nixon said the team's offense was again very strong.

"The top five batters Baxter, Nixon, Berry, Davalos, and Salaz again hit the ball very well," he said. "Damon Alvarado and Leo Lopez, who are newcomers to the team this year, really picked up their batting and hit the ball very well all weekend."

Williams is now 4-0 for the season so far with only four runs scored against them in four games.

"We have some good ball players who returned from last year and they haven't lost a beat from last year's 19 and 1 team," Nixon said.

Kohl Nixon is 2-0 pitching and has recorded 30 strikeouts in two starts and one inning of relief with an ERA of .000.

Nixon said Team No. 1's offense has overwhelmed their competition.

"The top five batters on this team are all hitting over .800 for the season," Nixon said. "We also had three players hit homeruns this weekend with Berry, Nixon and Daniel Solberg all hitting solo homeruns."

Williams Team No. 2 is 1-3 for the season losing to Continental Team No. 2 5-8 on Friday and losing two games to Continental Team No. 4 on Saturday. Williams No. 2 lost the first game 13 to 8 and the second game 20-10.

Coach Keith Perkins said although the team had a losing weekend, many of his players hit the ball well.

"Brent Perkins went 3-3 and Jose Aguilar went 3-3," he said. "In Saturday's first game, Rafi Duran went 3-4 and in the second game, Christian Campos went 2-3 and Garrett Pettit had a nice triple with one RBI."
