EUGENE, ORE. > Baseball
Andrew, a junior at North Eugene High, threw back-to-back no-hitters in his first two league starts, striking out 13 and walking two against Thurston, then fanning 15 and walking two against South Eugene. He had a 0.76 ERA with 71 strikeouts in 46 innings through Sunday. In 2010 Andrew led the Highlanders to the 5A state title and was named 5A pitcher of the year.
LAKEWOOD, CALIF. > Softball
Amber, a senior catcher at Mater Dei High, hit a grand slam to lift the Monarchs over Beckman and break her own school record for home runs in a season (9). A week later she broke the RBI record (44) in a win over Riverside Christian. Amber played on the USA Softball Junior National team, which won gold at the Pan-Am Games last August.
UPPER DARBY, Pa. > Marathon
Weygandt, 64, completed his 45th straight Boston Marathon (5:52:14) to continue his streak of running the most consecutive marathons in one city. His first Boston finish came in 1967, before the other modern major marathons—Berlin, Chicago, London and New York City—existed. His PR (2:36:51 in '83) came during a 23-year string of sub-three-hour races.
