Campos pitched 3 1/3 innings while Sarah Wyse pitched the final 1 2/3 innings.

“This capped off a tough two-week stretch in which we played 12 games,” said Joe Frank, AHS head coach. “We are playing good defense, for the most part, behind our pitchers, and our offense has been fairly consistent.

“We still have room to improve, but we are headed in the right direction. We have two big NWOAL games this week with Delta and a PH team that is 14-1 and 4-0 in the NWOAL, so those will be our primary focus next week.”
