Let’s start with professional baseball and an update on Keenyn Walker ‘09. The Class A Carolina League Winston-Salem Dash lost the league championship in a heartbreaker to Lynchburg, a best out-of-five series. Keenyn is credited with a “dazzling double play” to clinch the second-half Southern Division title for Winston-Salem, one of the best defensive plays of 2012.
