Roxana senior center fielder Blake Vandiver recently announced where he will play baseball after his prep career is finished — Lewis and Clark Community College.
Vandiver will join the Trailblazer after completing his senior season with the Shells.
Last season the spark plug for Roxana batted .321 with 11 RBIs and 15 stolen bases. He also scored 23 runs for the 12-15 Shells. In the field he posted a .919 fielding percentage, committing just three errors.
He looks to be a key contributor for Roxana again in 2016. The Shells open their season at 4:30 p.m. March 17 at rival East Alton-Wood River.
LCCC is directed by longtime head coach Randy Martz.
