North Broward Prep Wins Fourth Straight Regional Title

It is not often a program that has been to four straight regional titles has redemption on their minds, but that is the case with the 2024 North Broward Prep Eagles.

After winning back-to-back state titles in 2021 and 2022, they fell short in the state semifinals last year in a loss to Calvary Christian out of Tampa.

On the mound that day for the Eagles, was Mateo Gray.

On Tuesday, Gray ensured that his Eagles would get another crack at a state title, by throwing a complete game shutout, allowing only three hits, while striking out eight.

“Mateo did a great job on the mound for us tonight,” said NBP Manager Brian Campbell. “He was in control the whole night, and did exactly what he has done for us all year. It was a great outing, and one we needed to get the job done tonight.”

While Gray was putting up zeroes on the mound inning after inning, the offense was equally as impressive.

The Eagles piled up 13 hits, and made sure the game was put away early, scoring seven runs in the first inning, and then one in the second, three in the third, and two in the fourth.

Kiernan O’Neill and Max Burkholz had three hits and two runs each. Riley Luft added two hits, and Gray, TJ Gramesty, and Gian De Castro all had hits for NBP.

“It was a big team effort offensively,” said Campbell. “I am really, really proud of our senior class. It’s a special group, and I am happy they get a chance to go back to Fort Myers and hopefully come back with a state title.”

A state title in 4A this season will not be easy, as it projects out as one of the toughest state final fours in Fort Myers. The Eagles, the #2 team in HSBN’s Broward Power Rankings, will face HSBN’s #2 Southwest Florida team, Bishop Verot in one semifinal.

In the other semifinal, it will be a match up of HSBN Miami’s #2 team Westminster Christian, and HSBN Jacksonville’s #2 team, Trinity Christian.

It will be the first time in history that four teams, all ranked #2 in their county HSBN rankings, will face off in the state semifinals.
