Closing out prep career
Shortstop Lain Kranz is one of the senior members of the Ruston High School baseball team who will be winding up his prep career this spring. The 2012 All-District 2-5A and All-Lincoln Parish member has earned an academic scholarship to Louisiana Tech University, where he plans to go out for the Bulldogs’ squad. Kranz has a 3.85 grade point average and an ACT score of 30. He’ll be in action for the Bearcats this week when play begins Thursday in the annual Trey Altick Classic.
