Rockford Lutheran senior Nick Brigham is our newest OSF St. Anthony's Athlete of the Week. Brigham pitched a complete game shutout with ten strikeouts in Lutheran's Regional championship win over Boylan Saturday.
Lutheran took third in the state in 2-A last year, but got moved up to 3-A this year.
"We knew it was going to be a challenge," Brigham said of moving up a class. "All season we were trying to figure out the pieces. We all came together and realized we need to play as a team. We're really clicking and enjoying baseball. Just going out there and having fun."
Lutheran tries to extend its season in the Sycamore Sectional semifinals against Marmion Academy.
