Three Lions Earn Degrees

Saturday was a big day off of the diamond for the Lion baseball family, as three members earned degrees at the 2011 Fall commencement excercises. 

Joseph Koon, a RHP from Saltillo, MS, earned a bachelor's degree in General Studies.  Mitchell Haynes, who played SS for the Lions from 2007-08, earned a bachelor's degree in Business Administration.  Earning his master's degree in Health & Kinesiology was Matthew Schexnayder, who was the Lions catcher from 2007-08.

Congrats to Joseph, Mitchell, and Matt!
