Returning heroes: fans cheer the baseball team home
Honking vehicles from the Norton Police and Fire Departments escorted the Wheaton baseball team back to campus as community and campus turned out to welcome the team home. The Lyons went all the way to the final game of the NCAA Division III College World Series, finishing as runners up to Marietta College on Wednesday.
"We are incredibly proud of you, and so thankful for the way you represented this college," Wheaton President Ronald A. Crutcher said at the rally. His sentiments were echoed by Head Baseball Coach Eric Podbelski, Director of Athletics John Sutyak '00 and many cheering fans.
