Sheridan's Meyer throws perfecto

SHERIDAN – Sheridan senior Jackson Meyer required just 55 pitches over five innings to throw the first perfect game of his career.

Meyer struck out 14 of the 15 Gervais batters he faced as the Spartans drubbed the Cougars, 19-0, in an abbreviated first game of a doubleheader Saturday afternoon at Sheridan High School.

For good measure, Sheridan won the second game of the doubleheader, 9-1, behind a strong offensive performance from J.T. Norwood. Norwood went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple and two RBI for the Spartans. Breton Zeman drove in three runs for the Spartans, while Justin Stauffer added two RBI.

On Thursday, Sheridan posted a seven-run third inning and held off Class 2A Nestucca in a 12-8 victory at Sheridan High School. Norwood, Zeman and Lucas Williams each doubled and drove in two runs against the Bobcats, while Chase Butt went 2-for-4 from the plate.

Sheridan (4-0) plays in the Les Schwab Invitational Friday at Grant Union High School in John Day.
