Panther Baseball players sign scholarships to Arkansas

This week our Hartnell Baseball program, under Head Coach Travis Babin held a signing day for two student-athletes: (#6) Ryan Clack and (#19) Ryan Porras. Both of these incredible sophomores have signed to Lyon College in Arkansas, to continue their education and play. Clack (UTIL) is coming off a season in which he had 36 hits, 22 runs on a .275 batting average while his teammate and close friend Porras (LHP) handled things on the mound averaging 5.76 strikeouts per game and only allowing 48 hits in 13 appearances. Both players expressed their excitement for the opportunity, to experience together and the culture they get to be a part of. All their hard work as student athletes has come into fruition. Clack said the biggest thing he had to do, was to focus on his sleeping schedule and make sure he gets enough rest to tackle the workload he took on. Porras praised time management as well, stating that it is what allows him to get on the field on time and to get to class on time. This season was held close to Ryan Clacks heart as he unfortunately lost his mother earlier in the year, the team rallied together and dedicated their play in her memory; our condolences to Clack for his loss but there's no question that both of these players’ families and teammates couldn't be any happier for their accomplishments. Go Panthers!
