Bill Knight Automotive spring sports athletes of the week: Sperry’s Tobin Brummett, Union’s Ashwin Chandrasekar and Lincoln Christian’s Jaden Katsis | OK Preps


Pitcher/outfielder has been a key cog in the Pirates’ recent five-game winning streak, including 20-8 victory over Adair on Saturday. In wins over Beggs (twice), Perkins-Tryon and Inola last week, Brummett went 7-for-13 at the plate with eight RBIs, and he also logged a complete game on the pitching mound with seven strikeouts and one earned run allowed.

Won all three of his matches last week at No. 1 Singles during the Union team tournament, helping the Redhawks place third. Also won the No. 1 Singles bracket at the Edmond Memorial tournament on April 2. Boasts a 14-4 record this season. Was a 2021 All-World tennis athlete of the year finalist.

Was instrumental in helping the Bulldogs secure the team title at the Pinnacle Conference championship. Katsis picked up gold medals in the 100-meter hurdles and 300-meter hurdles, and she also led the first leg of the Bulldogs’ 400-meter relay team, which finished first overall and clocked a time of 52.21 — which was .01 seconds short of a school record. Katsis also finished fourth in the high jump while Lincoln Christian totaled 283 points for a league title.
