Recruiting: Sorenson Is A State Champ

If Oklahoma State commit Nathan Sorenson's best sport is football, than future Cowboy opponents probably don't want to know what he's done in the past 92 hours.

The 6-3, 200-pound Sorenson, the three-star quarterback from Texarkana, Texas, who committed to Oklahoma State in February, is a member of the Texas High School baseball and track teams that have been participating in the Class 4A state playoffs and Class 4A state track meet last Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Sorenson became a state champion as he and three Texas High teammates won first place in the 800-meter relay race on Friday night in Austin. The foursome of Brandon Welch, Darryl Wyrick, Sorenson and Cobi Hamilton won with the fastest time in the nation this year with a time of 1:25.29.

That impressive feat came on the heels of Thursday night's performance while playing for the Texas High baseball team in the best-of-three Class 4A Region II high school baseball finals. The Tigers suffered a 2-1 loss to McKinney North in the first game of the series Thursday night, but guess who accounted for Texas High's only run? If you guessed Sorenson, than you're right as he hit a solo home run in the seventh inning.

Sorsenon's postseason journey continued Saturday in McKinney after beginning Thursday night in Texarkana, and moving to Austin for the state track meet on Friday. Texas High won back-to-back games at McKinney North on Saturday, winning the first game 13-0 and the deciding game of the sereis 6-2 to advance to this week's Class 4A state tournament.
