SNC baseball players carry MWC trophy at graduation
DE PERE (WLUK) - Fresh off a Midwest Conference Tournament win on Saturday, St. Norbert Senior baseball players had another milestone to take care of on Sunday.
After arriving back on campus from Grinnell College at 3 a.m. the team had a graduation ceremony to attend this afternoon. A few of the players brought the MWC trophy on the stage with them as they received their diplomas.
"It's been a long 24 hours, lack of sleep, lack of anything, but it feels good to graduate and the MWC Championship, onto the next one," said senior Blake Rutherford.
"It's been unreal especially having all of the guys back on the road. we are all extremely tired, but getting the championship was just amazing and coming back and graduating with my senior classmates is just awesome. As you can probably see, all of our seniors from baseball we all brought it up there and showed it off. we felt really proud, " said senior Derek Klegin.
The team will find out on Monday morning who they will be playing in the NCAA Tournament. Regional play begins on Thursday.
