Russell County Laker senior Lucas Bault signed his letter of intent to play college baseball at the University of Pikeville during a ceremony at Russell County High School on Monday afternoon.
Bault, who plays catcher for the Mighty Lakers, chose Pikeville because he liked the area and developed a relationship with the coaches.
In his junior campaign for the Lakers, Bault had a batting average of .370, an on base percentage of .456, 40 hits, 11 doubles, 1 homerun, and 18 RBIs. Behind the plate, Bault is considered one of the best defensive catchers in the 4th region.
Lucas is the son Brentley and Jayna Bault of Russell Springs.
