North Mecklenburg High Ryder Ryan, a junior, pitched a one-hitter and struck out nine in a 7-1 victory against Lake Norman at the Wildcats' spring break tournament.

Ryan (3-1) walked two, but escaped a bases-loaded, one-out situation in the fifth inning by striking out the next batter and inducing a ground ball to the mound to end the inning.
Ryan also was 4-for-4 hitting and drove in two runs. North Mecklenburg banged out nine hits. Michael Coss weas 2-for-4, Chris McColl had two RBIs and Leontay Massey was 2-for-4 with an RBI.
