OSKALOOSA — The final act of Race Brant’s baseball career as a high school player was to sign an autograph.
This time, the signature was on a Letter on Intent, cementing his choice to accept William Penn University’s offer to continue his hardball career as a Statesman.
W-G head coach Eric Evans could not have been more pleased to see Brant choose his own alma mater as the place he would take his talents.
“Race had an outstanding high school career and has an exciting opportunity to play for coach Laird and his staff at William Penn University,” he said. “The whole W-G community is excited to see Race continue his baseball career at the collegiate level. Congrats, Race!”
Brant hit .434 (36-of-83) this summer while scoring 31 runs and driving in 14 from his spot atop the Hawk lineup. He boasted a .530 on-base percentage, striking out only seven times in 111 total trips into the batters box. The center fielder swatted four doubles, three triples and three home runs while stealing 21 bases in 24 attempts.
Brant finishes a stellar prep career with W-G school records in career hits (135) and runs scored (105) as well as in total stolen bases (83).
