Following a 15-4 victory on Senior Night on April 25 and with a spot in the state tournament in reach, it has been a very successful season for the Horizon Honors’ baseball program and the three seniors on the team. Chase Edwards, Joseph Holguin, and Connor Sorrells have been an integral part of the team’s success, and are now on to even bigger things as they get ready for graduation.

Holguin, outfielder and pitcher, has had a lot of fun throughout his time at Horizon Honors and has made memories that will last a lifetime, along with a solid year on the field. Holguin has committed to Benedictine University in Mesa, Arizona, and will be studying criminal justice and playing baseball. His favorite memories include having fun with teammates and all the stops in Bloody Basin after playing in Sedona.

Edwards, infielder and pitcher, has had a very strong senior year and is excited to continue playing baseball in college. Edwards will be playing at the University of the Ozarks, located in Arkansas. Edwards’s favorite moments include hitting three home runs in the same day and two in the same inning.

Sorrells, outfielder and pitcher, has played well on the field this season and is excited for the new possibilities that await him in college. Sorrells will be studying molecular biology at Grand Canyon University in Arizona next fall. The fun times with his teammates, who are like family to Sorrells, have been the highlight of his time at Horizon Honors.

This year’s team is the first to qualify for the state playoffs, and has also set a new record for wins, a feat that sends these seniors off having made their mark both on the field and in the classroom. Best of luck to all three in all of their future endeavors and to the team in state playoffs!
