The next step for Navajo is the district tournament, which will be hosted at Navajo on Thursday and Friday April 21-22.

“This is a great opportunity for us hosting at our ballpark. We don’t have to travel and we know our field better than anyone. We are playing good baseball right now and we are peaking at the right time only losing four games and winning 17 games in the last month. We just have to carry that momentum into the playoffs,” Winters said.
