Former East Coweta standouts Mason Meyer and Devonte Brown saw their baseball seasons come to an end over the weekend in their NCAA baseball regionals.

Meyer’s campaign ended at Liberty, while Brown and the N.C. State Wolfpack also were sent packing.

However, Meyer was one of the heroes early in the tournament, leading the Flames to a 6-1 victory over Tennessee in the first game of the double-elimination tournament.

Liberty, however, couldn’t sustain the early momentum losing to host North Carolina 16-1 and then 6-5 against Tennessee in a rematch.

The second game against the Vols went 10 innings.

In his victory against Tennessee to start the tournament, Meyer picked up  the victory, pitching 6 ⅓ innings. He allowed just five hits.

He struck out one and walked one.

The left-handed Meyer was in his first season at Liberty after transferring from Central Alabama Junior College.

Meyer went into the postseason  with a 6-4 record and a 4.28 ERA. His totals also included 60 strikeouts and 33 walks.

Brown and N.C. State lost twice in the Greenville regional, falling to Campbell 5-4 and host East Carolina 9-2.

Brown went hitless in two trips to the plate against Campbell, and picked up one hit against East Carolina.

Brown went into the regionals batting .286 in limited action. He also had five RBIs.

Both  just completed their sophomore seasons.
