The buzz:Wherever Christo took the mound this season, major league scouts followed, and itโ€™s easy to see why. Christoโ€™s 95-mph fastball helped him lead the state with 92 strikeouts while allowing just three earned runs in 48 innings pitched. Christo was just as good at the plate, with five home runs and 39 RBIs.

The buzz:The reason behind Central City/Fullerton/Centuraโ€™s first-ever state tournament appearance as a co-op is simple โ€” it had the best hitter statistically.
