The senior pitcher turned in a week of superlatives, pitching three shutout innings for an 18-0 win over North East and following that with a one-hitter and a 1-0 victory over North Harford. "The North Harford game was breathtaking," Mustangs coach Tony Blackburn said. "They challenged him batter after batter. To watch him dig down the way he did against a quality opponent, it was the game of his life. In two wins, no one even reached second base on him. " Ruse has a 5-1 record this season and a 1.57 ERA with 60 strikeouts.

When Tony Blackburn decided to take off a year as C. Milton Wright baseball coach to spend more time with his family, he turned the reins over to assistant Joe Stetka. Under Stetka, the Mustangs did not miss a beat. He led them to the Class 4A state final for the third time since 2004 with just three returning starters. "Coach Blackburn is coming back, but I have enjoyed this and I've said all along, it's been his ship and I'm just steering it for him," Stetka said. Stetka guided the Mustangs to a 19-5 record and No. 3 ranking.
