Pearl River Community College has sent a number of its baseball standouts to the professional ranks, and now some of those former Wildcats are returning to lead a new generation of players.
Five players for Pearl River Community College were named to the 2017 All-MACJC baseball second team, in voting by conference coaches.
Earning second-team honors were first baseman Simon Landry, third baseman Lucas Scott, and pitchers Colby White, Luke Bradley and Peyton Lee.
Landry, a freshman from Ponchatoula, La., led the Wildcats in most offensive categories this season. He had 52 hits in 171 at-bats, scored 45 runs, drove in 46 runs, hit 13 doubles and 14 home runs, all team highs. He finished with a .304 batting average.
