The race for the District 1 5A title in high school baseball came down to the final day. After the dust settled, it was the Volcano Vista Hawks holding the title after a 9-1 victory over the Rio Rancho Rams. Volcano Vista, Rio Rancho and Cleveland were all in play to claim the title.
The run differential in the Hawks’ victory over the Rams allowed them to overtake all for the championship. The Rams led the game going into the fifth inning, but the Hawks would tie and also get a three-run home run from Ryan Curran to take the lead for good.
Now, the teams will wait to hear how they will be seeded for the upcoming state tournament. Seeding will be announced Sunday.
