On the Coyotes: The Coyotes return seven starters from last season's team that finished 4-8 in District 29-5A. The Coyotes have a history of winning and being competitive and will be in the mix for a playoff spot. Carrillo hit .300 last season and Guzman had a 3.50 ERA with 43 strikeouts on the season. With some breaks and consistent pitching, the Coyotes have an opportunity to make some noise in their final season in Class 5A.


Coach Nick Alvarado on the 2020 season: "We were one catch, one pitch, one hit from getting in the postseason last year. The message doesn't change, the expectations don't change and being able to really go out and execute our plan. We've set some very pointed goals offensively and from a pitching standpoint. I think we are battle tested."
