LHS, FSHS grads go 3-1 at NCAA baseball


Three of the four Lawrence high school products playing in the NCAA Baseball Tournament won opening-round regional games on Friday.

In Columbia, South Carolina, Free State High graduate Tim Lewis went 1-for-4 as Maryland edged Old Dominion, 4-3.

In Nashville, Tennessee, Oregon routed Clemson, 18-1, but Lawrence High product Garrett Cleavinger did not pitch.

Similarly, Free State’s Colin Toalson did not pitch in Kansas University’s 10-6 victory over Kentucky in Louisville, Kentucky.

The only city product to lose an NCAA game Friday was Shane Willoughby, an LHS grad who went 0-for-4 in Youngstown State’s 10-2 loss to Indiana.

Pretty impressive to have four locals in the NCAA tournament. As much as I would like to see all of these guys in Crimson and Blue, I understand a desire to go out and have a traditional college experience. Good luck to all.....just a little more for Toalson.
