Former Palm Beach Gardens left-hander Brooks de Montluzin has a better week than any junior college pitcher.

De Montluzin, a freshman at Florida State College at Jacksonville, was named OC Sports National Junior College Athletic Association Division 1 pitcher of the week after throwing a no-hitter.

He delivered nine near-perfect innings in a 3-0 win against Lake Sumter State, striking out seven and walking one.

He was a reliable lefty for last year’s Gardens club, which made the Class 8A state semifinals. He went 7-3 with a 2.40 ERA and 55 strikeouts over two varsity seasons.
