Support Local Journalism


After a record breaking season that ended with a 30-1 record, a league championship and a fourth straight section title, it’s no surprise that the Winters High School varsity baseball team would put three players in an all-star game. The Warriors not only will be sending three of its seniors to the classic event, they will be sending their coaching staff as well. When it comes to baseball the Warriors don’t need an introduction to get recognized, but when you are the number one ranked team in the state in small schools and are ranked number one in the entire section you tend to draw even more attention.

Coach Jeff Ingles was chosen for the second time to lead the South squad in the 16th Annual Chico Breakfast Lions Bob Busch Classic All Star Game. Ingles coached the 2003 team ironically after winning his fourth straight section title and being ranked number one in the state in small schools. Ingles was also the CIF small schools State Coach of the Year that season.

Winters will be sending seniors Anthony Carrion, Sammy Gonzales and Jacob Roberts to represent the Warriors. This game will bring in the best baseball seniors from the entire northern section and the three Warriors will fit right in. The game will be played at Hooker Oak Recreation Area. The nine inning game is set for 3 p.m.

Statically on both sides of the plate the Warriors had some impressive numbers this year. Carrion had an 8-0 pitching record with a 1.28 era and had 64 strikeouts. At the plate Carrion batted .379, scored 40 runs with 28 RBI, hit eight doubles, two triples, two home runs, a grand slam and had 15 stolen bases. Gonzales batted .473 with 51 runs,30 RBI, eight doubles, 14 triples, four home runs and had 22 stolen bases. Roberts had a .340 average with 27 runs, 34 RBI, six doubles, 14 stolen bases and had a 5-1 pitching record with an era of 0.79.
