Boys Athlete of the Week:

It can only go downhill from here.

But seriously, what a way to begin a high school career.

Brady Ebel, a freshman at Etiwanda High School, threw a no-hitter in his first ever start.

The Eagles defeated Ramona, 7-0, on Wednesday.

Etiwanda had dropped a pair of low-scoring, one run games on Monday and Tuesday, and they sought some form of momentum before opening Baseline League play on Monday against Damien.

Ebel walked three, fanned seven and finished off the Rams in an efficient 83-pitch outing.

There is no accurate formula to estimate the likelihood of a freshman throwing a no-hitter in his first prep start, but it seems safe to say it’s at least a one-in-a-million scenario.

Up next: Etiwanda (8-5) will travel to Damien (7-6) on Monday and Friday, and the Eagles will host the Spartans on Wednesday.
