Rams keep rolling

-

Owasso came up a run short of Southmoore in last year’s Class 6A title game.

Now the Rams (17-4) are on a mission, and a pair of freshmen, Jayelle Austin and Preslee Downing, are spearheadi­ng Owasso’s offensive and pitching efforts.

“Right now we are playing really well,” Owasso coach Shane Eicher said. “Our pitching staff has done so much more than I ever anticipate­d this season.”

Downing is leading the pitching staff with a 12-2 record and an ERA under 1. On offense, senior third baseman Madi Drummond is hitting over .350, and sophomore shortstop Brookley Foster is hitting .400.

All of that has added up to a 12-game winning streak after a 6-0 victory Tuesday at Norman North.

“We have been getting some clutch hits at the right times, and the kids are just playing relaxed and having fun,” Eicher said. “We have such a young team with a few seniors who are really leading this team.”
