Walking the orange carpet before the show, Lewis & Clark student-athletes were honored at the 2018 Excellence in Lewis & Clark’s Year of Sports awards. Miyah Leith of women’s basketball and Gordon Barrows and Brenden Barrows of men’s tennis took the top awards.
On a rain-soaked Sunday afternoon, the Lewis & Clark faithful honored a quintet of seniors as Connor Eggleston, Max Gordon, Zach Merzlak, Sean Shepherd, and Chandler Vieira played their last home game at the Huston Sports Complex.
Max Gordon hit his second career home run in the first inning and starting pitcher Nick Kennison won his first game of the season in the opener. Robert Reaser kept the Wildcats scoreless through the first seven innings in the day's finale as Lewis & Clark won both to open a series against Linfield for the first time since 2009.
