Two Nogales High School baseball players wasted no time in solidifying their post-graduation plans when they inked college letters of intent on Wednesday, the first day of the 2019-2020 signing period.

NHS senior Matthew Bachelier formally committed to Gonzaga University in Spokane, Wash., and his classmate Kenneth Jimenez signed with Yavapai College of Prescott during a ceremony at the school that was attended by dozens of friends and family members.

O.J. Favela, head coach of the Nogales Apaches, called the event a “celebration for Kenneth and Matthew and both of their families,” and noted that the two are poised to join a list of 13 NHS alumni currently playing college baseball around the country – including Bachelier’s older brother Marcel and Jimenez’s older brother Kevin.
