Top uncommitted hitter of the week

Noah Greise, sophomore, Millard South: After collecting at least one hit in every game, Greise finds himself with a six-game hitting streak. The sophomore was 5 for 11 with three doubles, a triple, four runs scored, and three RBIs.

Notable hitters

Dalton Nelson, senior, Millard North: Nelson, an Iowa Western commit, led the Mustangs to a perfect week. He went 6 for 8 with four walks, seven runs scored, two RBIs, and three doubles. Top 10 opponents Omaha Westside and Millard South failed to record an out against Nelson.

Will Reetz, senior, Elkhorn South: The Hutchinson CC commit added another home run to his state lead last week against Millard West. Along with the bomb, Reetz was 4-7 with five RBIs, two runs scored, and a triple.

Jake Wageman, junior, Bennington: Wageman flashed his speed once again as he had his second consecutive game with four stolen bases, pushing his state lead up to 13. At the plate, he was 2 for 4 with four runs scored and a walk.


Top uncommitted pitcher of the week

Logan Van Treeck, junior, Lincoln Southeast: The left-hander showed why he is one of the state's top pitchers after tossing a no-hitter against Omaha Creighton Prep. A total of four baserunners were allowed in the game, two of those by error. Van Treeck has now made back-to-back 6-plus inning starts against top 5 teams Lincoln Southwest and Creighton Prep.

Notable pitchers

Alex Pavon, senior, Bellevue East: Pavon, an Iowa Lakes commit, tossed a gem in a losing effort against Millard South. Pavon struck out nine in six innings. He did not allow an earned run on seven hits.

Buck Leinen, senior, Omaha Concordia/Brownell/Omaha Christian Academy: Leinen leads the state in wins and strikeouts. In his start against Omaha Central, Leinen tossed a two-hitter, striking out a season-high 14.

Zach Argo/Cullen Papenhagen, seniors, Norris: The duo threw a combined no-hitter in a 9-0 win over Omaha Westside.
