High school baseball: Regis Jesuit blasts 13 home runs, sets Colorado record in 21-2 victory - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball: Regis Jesuit blasts 13 home runs, sets Colorado record in 21-2 victory
The 2019 Colorado 5A champion Regis Jesuit (Aurora, Colo.) baseball team evidently hit the weight room during time off from the pandemic. Friday, in the Raiders' second game of the 2021 season, they blasted 13 home runs during a 21-2 win at Dakota Ridge.

The baker's dozen is the most in state history and the second highest total in a high school game. Only Atlantic (Iowa) hit more homers in a high school game — 16 — and that was in 1928, almost a century ago.

Oregon State commit Dallas Macias, along with Max Valdez and Charlie Doubet each clubbed three home runs and Regis hit four consecutive round-trippers in the second inning as the team moved to 2-0 on the young season.

More impressive: The game was stopped after five innings due to the state's mercy rule. Ten of the 13 blasts were solo homers.

"It was a really good day to hit and the wind was blowing out," Regis Jesuit coach Matt Darr told the Denver Post. "I have always felt like we would be a really good hitting team this year and that hitting is contagious. But honestly, I have never seen something like that before."

Minnesota-bound Alec Willis, Xavier commit Isaac Wachsmann, Nate McHugh and Finn O'Connor also hit bombs for the Raiders. Regis Jesuit, which didn't play last season due to the pandemic, hit 25 home runs in 2019 en route to a 25-6 record and No. 1 spot in the final MaxPreps Top 25 Colorado rankings.

"It was just an extraordinary performance that I don't think I'll ever see again," Darr said.

The Raiders probably won't repeat the feat Monday when they return to action. Regis Jesuit faces the state's top college prospect in ThunderRidge (Highlands Ranch) pitcher Cale Lansville, an LSU commit.

HIGHSCORE Sophomore All-Americans Matt and Ryan Bewley skip final two year of high school basketball to begin professional career - HIGHSCORE
MaxPreps Sophomore All-Americans Matt and Ryan Bewley skip final two year of high school basketball to begin professional career
Overtime Elite (OTE) signed its first high school players Friday, inking five-star West Oaks Academy (Orlando, Fla.) forwards Matthew Bewley and Ryan Bewley, per a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The elite Class of 2023 forwards will forgo their high school and college eligibility to join the startup league in September for contracts expected to pay out seven figures for each player over their two year contract.

Matt is regarded as the No. 2 prospect in the Class of 2023 according to 247Sports, while Ryan is ranked No. 16 in the class.
Both players were selected as MaxPreps Sophomore All-Americans last season. Matt Bewley earned first team honors after averaging 17 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks per contest while Ryan Bewley earned honorable mention after averaging 10 points, 10.3 rebounds and two blocks per game.

Overtime Elite, in the process of building a 100,000 square-foot arena and training facility in Atlanta, hired 13-year NBA veteran and national championship-winning coach Kevin Ollie to run the team.

The upstart professional league is offering players a guaranteed minimum of at least $100,000 per year, plus bonuses and shares of equity in Overtime. It also maintains players will participate in revenue from use of their name, image and likeness, including through sales of custom jerseys, trading cards, video games and NFTs.

Overtime has secured $80 million in financial backing from Jeff Bezos, Drake, Alexis Ohanian, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant and others.
