The Mustang Broncos picked up three much needed wins in the 2024 Edmond Spring Break Festival two weekends ago at home.

The Broncos outscored Class 4A Kingfisher, 3A Metro Christian, and Bishop Kelley 20-3 during a wet weekend at the Mustang Baseball Complex. MHS played host along with multiple schools in the metro.


The Broncos racked up 12 hits and held the Yellowjackets to three in a shutout win to open the festival.

Jackson Pickelsimer (Sr.) was sensational on the mound, racking up seven strikeouts while allowing just three baserunners. He needed just 66 pitches to notch the complete game victory.

Mustang broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the third inning and never looked back.

Third baseman Luiz Herrera (Jr.) led off the frame with a single to center field before reaching third on a sacrifice bunt by right fielder Nate Sutton (So.) and a flyout by center fielder Blaine Fulmer (Jr.).

Left fielder Maddox Lawson (Jr.) finished the job with an RBI-single to right field for a 1-0 lead.

Herrera and Lawson each went 2-for-3, including two runs scored by Herrera.

The Broncos added three runs in the fourth inning and four in the sixth to complete the run rule.

First baseman Carlos Lopez (Sr.) got things started in the fourth with a leadoff double before Pickelsimer helped his own cause with a double and an RBI for a 2-0 lead.

Catcher Wyatt Williamson (So.) moved Pickelsimer to third with a sacrifice bunt before an RBI-single by designated hitter Kylen Dodge (Jr.) made it 3-0.

Dodge moved to third on a passed ball and a dropped third strike to Herrera before scoring on an RBI-single by Sutton for a 4-0 advantage.

Lopez and Dodge also went 2-for-3 while combining for three runs scored.

The Broncos knocked around Kingfisher pitching for five hits in the sixth inning.

Dodge ignited the run with a one-out single before stealing second and reaching third on a walk to shortstop Kaden Williams (Jr.) and a single by Herrera.

Jonathan Pilgrim (Sr.) stepped to the plate in a pinch-hit situation and extended Mustang’s lead to 6-0 with a two-RBI single to right field, driving home Dodge and Williams.

Fulmer followed by driving home Herrera and Pilgrim with a double to right-center field to end the game.


The Broncos gave up three first inning runs, but quickly responded to knock off the Class 3A Patriots in the second game of the festival.

Dodge started on the hill for Mustang and was shaky early, allowing three hits and a walk to start the game. However, he settled down and the Bronco bats came alive to ensure the victory.

The Patriots scored on two singles, a double, a walk, and a Mustang error to take the early lead. Dodge responded well, allowing just two hits with three strikeouts over the following three-plus innings.

It didn’t take long for the Broncos to overcome the early deficit and take the lead, scoring four runs in the bottom of the first inning on two hits, two walks, two errors, a hit-by-pitch, and a fielder’s choice.

Fulmer led off by reaching on an error and eventually scored on an RBI single by Pickelsimer. The senior designated hitter moved his way to third on a hit-by-pitch and a walk drawn by Williamson and Williams to load the bases.

Pickelsimer, who went 2-for-2 with 2 RBI, scored on a passed ball to make it 3-2 before a two-run double by Herrera to take a 4-3 lead.

Mustang added three runs in the second inning and one in the fourth to help seal the victory.

Fulmer started the second inning by reaching on a dropped third strike before moving to third on a pair of errors on a ball put in play by Lawson.

Fulmer scored on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Lopez before an RBI-single by Pickelsimer made it 6-3. Lopez scored on a groundout RBI by Williamson for a 7-3 lead.

Pickelsimer scored the team’s final run in the fourth inning. He led off with a walk before reaching third after a hit-by-pitch drawn by Williamson and a sacrifice bunt by Williams. Herrera plated Pickelsimer with a flyout to right field for a 8-3 advantage.

Teagan Munson (Sr.), Gavin Ivy (Sr.), and Jacob Haller (Sr.) were solid in relief, closing out the win by combining to allow just three hits and two walks with four strikeouts.


Lopez capped the festival with a shutout performance on the mound, helping guide the Broncos to a 4-0 win over the Comets.

The senior hurler was outstanding, allowing just three hits with 11 strikeouts and two walks in the complete game victory. He also went 1-for-3 at the plate with an RBI to help his own cause.

The Broncos scored three runs in the first and one in the second to ultimately seal the win.

Fulmer, Lawson, and Lopez got things going early, leading off with back-to-back-to-back knocks to start the bottom of the first inning.

Fulmer scorched a double down the left field line before scoring on a double to left by Lawson for a 1-0 lead. Lopez followed with an RBI-single to right-center field to make it 2-0.

Lopez moved to third on a groundout by Pickelsimer and a single by right fielder Jake Blice (Sr.) before scoring on an RBI-knock by Williams for a four-run advantage.

Mustang didn’t even need a hit to score its final run.

Herrera led off by reaching second on an error before moving to third and scoring the game’s final run on a sacrifice bunt by Fulmer and a RBI-groundout by Lawson.
