“Prior to the [Ball State] partnership in 2018, the district was losing around 500 students or so each year,” Klotz said via email. “That then subsided to around 100 students for a couple years before actually seeing a gain of 100+ students last year – the first enrollment increase at MCS in 15 years.”
Bases loaded with two outs in the fourth inning. Freshman second baseman Dylan Grego steps up to the plate. Grego takes the first pitch. The next pitch he sees ends up beyond the center field fence to put the Cardinals up 12-0.
