Canyon del Oro High School has been the epicenter of superb softball and baseball in Southern Arizona this decade, and this season proved it.

CDO won the Class 4A-I state titles in both sports earlier this month, and the two teams' star players — Kenzie Fowler in softball and Ryan Retz in baseball — anchor the Daily Star's Southern Arizona All-Star teams. We also honor 223 other local standouts.
