Creighton's Kevin Connolly to enroll
Coach Woody Hunt's effort to upgrade the roster of his 2017 baseball team continues to gather steam with the commitment of another NCAA Division I transfer. Creighton University outfielder Kevin Connolly (6-1, 180) will join the Phoenix program this fall with three solid seasons under his belt.
"Kevin is a proven Division I hitter, a guy who can give us some production at the top of our lineup," Coach Hunt said.
As a high school senior, Connolly led Creighton Prep in Omaha, NE to the best record in school history (34-4) and a state championship.
