Here is this week's Daily Memphian high school honor roll, saluting the top prep performers over the past seven days.

Baseball

Jack Dougherty, Collierville: In a season full of strong starts, Dougherty pitched a real gem in Monday's 2-1 victory over MUS. The junior righthander, who is committed to Ole Miss, held the Owls to three hits over seven innings, walking just one and striking out 13 as the Dragons won their 30th game.

Reid Voss, CBHS: Voss homered on Saturday in a 7-5 victory over Germantown that gave the Brothers their 11th consecutive victory, then went deep again on Monday in a loss to Houston. CBHS bounced back to defeat the Mustangs on Tuesday and heads into the postseason with a 20-10 record.

Softball

Colleen Blaszkowski, Collierville: Blaszkowski got it done in the circle and at the plate on Monday as the Dragons defeated arch-rival Houston, 15-0. She struck out seven to earn the victory while hitting a single, a triple and driving in five runs.

Ashtyn Manley, Arlington: The junior was sharp in a 1-0 victory over a good Covington team Monday. She went the distance and held the Chargers to just six hits while improving her season record to 12-2.

Soccer

Gregorio Barnett, Harding: The senior tallied a hat-trick on Tuesday as the Lions opened region tournament play with a 9-0 victory over Tipton-Rosemark.

Grant Caldwell, Houston: Caldwell scored three times, once from the penalty spot, to lead the Mustangs to a 5-1 victory over St. George's on April 25.

Track and field

Serena Lee, Central: The freshman cleared 5-4 to win the high jump at the SCIAA championship meet at Whitehaven and then captured the pentathlon at the 4-AAA sectional meet at Arlington. She won the high jump (5-4.25) and the long jump (18-8.5) and finished with 3,205 points, nearly 300 more than runner-up Aliyah Wilson of Houston.

Tyra Nabors, Southwind: Nabors turned in two elite performances while sweeping the hurdles races at the SCIAA AAA championship meet. The sophomore won the 100 in 14.78 and the 300 in 44.50 to help the Jaguars win the team title as well.

Rachel Sullivan, Briarcrest: Sullivan won the region pentathlon championship for the third consecutive year Tuesday at MUS. The senior finished first in the hurdles (16.51), the shot put (30-2.25) and the high jump (5-1.25) and scored 2,628 points.

Roland Turner, Arlington: The senior produced the top discus performance in the state so far this season when he threw 168-9 at the Dragon Relays in Collierville on April 27. Turner also finished first in the shot put with a mark of 51-6.

Deng Wek, Central: Wek turned in a fine performance in winning the Section 4-AAA decathlon. He finished first in the 100 (11.10), the 400 (51.65), the 110 hurdles (14.89) and the triple jump (42-1.25) to score 5,721 points. Earlier, the junior won the 110 hurdles (14.92) and the long jump (22-1) at the SCIAA AAA championship meet.

Terry Wilkins, Fairley: Wilkins, who is a highly recruited running back in the class of 2020, showed off his speed while winning both of the sprints at the SCIAA A-AA championship meet. He finished at 11.24 in the 100 and then went 22.83 to capture the 200.
