Baseball Wins First-Ever Outright League Title

The MCC baseball team shutout host Kellogg CC 9-0 and 3-0 on Thursday afternoon, May 8, in Battle Creek, Mich., to finish its Michigan Community College Athletic Association slate with a 21-5 record and the first outright baseball league title in school history.

The team, now 35-16 overall, scored four runs in the first inning of the 9-0 opening win. Freshman righthander Kyle Lawson (Muskegon, MI/Mona Shores) threw the shutout scattering five hits. Kory Brown (Sparta, MI/Sparta) and Adrian Anderson (Muskegon, MI/North Muskegon) each had two hits to pace the Jayhawks.

In game two, freshman Damon Proctor (Cheboygan, MI/Cheboygan) pitched a one-hit shutout for the Jayhawks. MCC had only four hits, but Patrick Giddings (Muskegon, MI/Oakridge) produced a triple and Stephon Chandonnet (Muskegon, MI/Reeths-Puffer) added a double.

The Jayhawks will open NJCAA Region 12 play on Wednesday, May 14, at 4 p.m. against an yet-to-be determined opponent from Ohio or Indiana.
