In the end, Evan Krenz got what he wanted.
Lakeside High School’s senior pitcher wanted to stay close to home to play baseball and that’s what he ensured Thursday when he signed to play for Division II Paine College.
Heading to the collegiate level after being a starter and reliever for the Panthers during his stint at the high school, Krenz is just looking to get an opportunity on the mound.
“I’m hoping I’m going to be a starter,” Krenz said. “If I get to pitch, that’s fine with me.”
