Knights remain unbeaten at college site
Chicago Christian ballplayers will go their separate ways after graduating high school, off to whichever colleges best fit their personal scholastic needs.
For those individuals who plan on staying involved with baseball at the next level, Valparaiso University might be a popular choice.
For sure, the Knights have enjoyed nothing but good luck on their annual pilgrimage to the Indiana school, a trip Christian coach Eric Brauer has arranged in each of his six seasons at the helm. That wasn’t the start of Brauer’s return to his collegiate alma mater, however — he also took his Michigan City Marquette team there on three occasions.
But while Marquette didn’t fare so well, the Knights certainly have. On Saturday, they racked up their sixth and seventh wins in a row at Valpo by capturing both ends of a doubleheader against Beecher.
