Delaware Tech’s Lux set to continue baseball dream at McPherson College

GEORGETOWN – Kyle Lux, a second-year player on the Delaware Technical Community College baseball team, is set to take his game to the next level.

Lux has signed to play baseball at McPherson College in McPherson, Kansas, where he will major in health and physical education. Lux said it was always his goal to play baseball in college and play at the highest level possible.

Lux, from Lewes, is a Sussex Tech High School graduate and plays outfield while majoring in criminal justice. He started playing baseball in Little League and hasn’t stopped since.

In two seasons at Delaware Tech, and as of April 27, Lux has 94 hits and 49 RBI in 73 games. As a freshman, he ranked 14th in the nation in batting with a .439 average, and had a .984 fielding percentage, which earned him Second Team All-Region honors.

Lux was also honored by the National Junior College Athletic Association as an All-Academic player. To receive that recognition, a student-athlete must have a grade point average of 3.6 or higher.

“It was an honor to [receive all-academic and all-region] honors,” Lux said. “It was nice to know that other teams from the region noticed me.”

In the future, Lux would like to work in law enforcement or as a physical education teacher.

“Kyle is the type of kid you want the whole team to be like,” said Curtis Brock, head baseball coach. “He’s a special student and has been a huge asset for Delaware Tech. McPherson is getting a dedicated athlete, who is a very competitive player. They’ll definitely get some good results.”
