The Eagles are coming off a season where they made it to the 6A conference semifinals but fell short to the eventual champion Hamilton Huskies.

According to MaxPreps, O’Connor currently ranks as the No. 9 team in Arizona.

They have continued a high level of play into this season and will look to keep that rolling into the 6A playoffs.
