Salpointe grad Carrillo coaches Cochise College to ACCAC Region title

Salpointe Catholic and UA grad Jerry Carrillo piloted Cochise College to a second consecutive ACCAC region basketball championship last week. The Apaches beat Mesa and Eastern Arizona to take a 26-6 record into the district final against Salt Lake Community College. The Apaches got a lot of mileage from ex-Catalina Foothills standout Chaz Mack, who averaged 12 points as a freshman. Pima College coach Brian Peabody led the Aztecs to a 12-10 record in the ACCAC, the best at the school since 2000-01.
