Baseball head coach Jason Hisley has also scheduled fall games.
The Aztecs will play at West Campus against the UA baseball club on Oct. 16 at 4 p.m., then face South Mountain Community College on Oct. 19 at 11 a.m.
Last year, the Aztecs’ season came to an end in the first round of the playoffs at the hands of South Mountain.
They’ll travel to Douglas on Oct. 25 to play Cochise College at 11 a.m.
