June 20th, 2013
June is a busy month around our house. With Cash playing on four baseball teams and one basketball team and Koby playing on three baseball teams and one basketball team, we have only had two days in June without a game of some kind. Both of those dates were due to rainouts. We needed the rain, but my Preps baseball team sure needs to play some games, too.

While no athletic titles came to the diamonds for the Carl Albert State College softball or baseball teams this past season, academic ones did, however.
The Lady Vikings have the fourth-best grade-point average for NJCAA Division I schools in the nation with a GPA of 3.48. That mark was .07 off the nation's best, which was 3.55.
The academic honors did not stop there. Two Lady Vikings and two Vikings were named as Academic All-Americans.
Softball player Kelsey Branscum and baseball player Austin Phippen had GPAs of 4.0, and were named as Pinnacle Award winners for their perfect GPA.
