UCA, baseball

McCollum is a senior outfielder for the Eagles, who’ll play this week in the Class 1-A state finals. He has been a key hitter during the state playoffs.

In Game 1 of the West Regional finals vs. Eastern Randolph, McCollum provided two hits, scored a run and drove in a run. He also had two hits in the third-round game against North Stokes and the fourth-round game against Draughn.

McCollum and first baseman Ben Medinger are the only seniors who’ve regularly been in the starting lineup this season for UCA.
