CHICKASHA – It’s every little boy’s dream to be play professional sports, and on Saturday, that dream came true for USAO’s Blake McMullen.

McMullen, a senior pitcher for the Drovers’ baseball team, was drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 29th round of the MLB draft.

“Words can’t explain it. It’s just a dream come true to me,” McMullen said. “It’s awesome. I’m so excited.”

McMullen was one of 37 NAIA athletes to be chosen in the draft, which was a three-day, 40-round event. He is one of seven athletes from the Sooner Athletic Conference to be selected this year.

Upcoming reception celebrates birdhouse sculptor

This birdhouse sculpture by Duncan artist Ben Herrington is part of the Birdhouse…Funhouse show currently on display in the Nesbitt Gallery at the University of Science and Arts. Herrington will be on hand to answer questions about his work at an artist’s reception scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on June 15 in the gallery. The event is free and open to the public.

It has been said that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Artist Ben Herrington takes that one step further by transforming wood that others discard into distinctive birdhouse sculptures that straddle the line between function and art.

The Nesbitt Gallery is scheduled to host an artist’s reception for Birdhouse…Funhouse, an exhibit of Herrington’s work, beginning at 7 p.m. on June 15. Herrington is expected to be in attendance to answer questions about his work.

Brian Vigo, a senior outfielder, was named All-America Second Team while third baseman Heath Wilda was named All-America Honorable Mention.

“We are extremely happy for them as a program,” Head Baseball Coach Mike Ross said. “Both of them are well deserving of this honor. It just goes to show that they put the hard work and effort in and got rewarded for it.”
