June 9, 2012—The Cypress Ranch High School baseball team defeated A&M Consolidated High School, 4-1, in the Class 5A state baseball final on Saturday at the Dell Diamond in Round Rock to clinch its first state championship.

The Mustangs (32-8) had a strong pitching performance from junior Zach Brosch, who improved to 8-0 after throwing 5 2/3 innings of four-hit ball with one earned run and four strikeouts.

Sophomore designated hitter Dalton Stark and sophomore left fielder Bryce Johnson led the Mustangs at the plate, both going 2-for-3. Sophomore center fielder Corbin Martin was named the Class 5A State Tournament Most Valuable Player after going 1-for-2 with a home run, two RBIs and a run scored in the title-clinching game. Senior second baseman Bryce Stark, sophomore first baseman Derek Dickerson and senior third baseman Justin Monsour all also recorded hits in the victory.
