The Pusch Ridge boys moved to 10-1 on the year after defeating Nogales 9-0 at the Hilton El Conquistador in Oro Valley on Wednesday. The Apaches are now 8-4 but still safely ranked No. 9 in Division II with only one match left in the regular season against No. 17 Douglas (6-1) at home scheduled for Thursday. A victory over Douglas will give the Apaches the Section VIII championship and an automatic playoff berth.

The Lions are ranked No. 3 in Division III and the team can claim the Section II championship on Thursday against No. 45 Palo Verde (1-7). The only blemish on the Pusch Ridge record was a 5-4 loss to No. 1 Thatcher on March 8.

The team tournaments are scheduled to start on April 26 and doubles and singles competition will follow on April 28.
