Austein Brown, Northwest Classen

Northwest Classen coach Rick Meza last watched the Knights beat U.S. Grant four years ago when he was an assistant coach.

Now the head coach, he was finally able to celebrate a victory over the city rival behind junior Brown’s dominance on the mound in Saturday’s 6-3 win in the All-City Tournament championship.

Brown threw all seven innings, striking out 10 and walking just one on 98 pitches.

“Big,” Meza said about Brown’s performance. “He just pitched a gem. Our offense is coming around, but he just took over the game.”


Austin Eckroat, Edmond North

The freshman earned the first outright win of his career on Tuesday, shooting a 4-under-par total of 136 (66-70) at the Edmond Memorial Bulldog Invitational. Eckroat’s varsity career has gotten off to a red-hot start, with a tie for first in one event along with two second-place finishes so far.
