Grace College’s baseball team enjoyed one of its most successful seasons in recent memory this spring.
The squad was honored accordingly with four awards by the Crossroads League.
Harris and Griffin were Grace’s two most dangerous hitters this year. Harris led Grace in batting average (.336) and produced 46 hits, 25 runs, 8 doubles and 23 RBIs in 44 games.
Griffin batted .333 as the everyday starter at first base. He finished second on the team in runs (28), doubles (8) and RBIs (27). He also led Grace with five triples and five home runs.
In league contests, Griffin took his play to an even higher level. He hit .390 and tallied 32 hits, 4 triples, 4 homers and 18 RBIs in 26 league games.
Haney produced strong numbers for Grace both at the plate and on the mound. He became Grace’s ace on the staff, posting a 3.64 ERA across a team-high 54 1/3 innings pitched. Haney struck out 48 batters and threw three complete games.
Haney also batted .289 with four home runs. He led Grace’s team with 32 RBIs as well as a team-leading nine doubles.
Enyart, who hit .299 for the season, impressed particularly in conference games. He produced a batting average of .352 against league opponents, ranking No. 12 among all Crossroads League players in that span.
The Lancers earned a spot in the league tournament for the first time since 2014. Grace crashed the bracket, upsetting three straight teams to reach the tournament championship before finally bowing out. – from gclancers.com
