FULTON, MS -- Itawamba Community College head baseball coach Rick Collier announced third baseman Chris Hannig has signed to continue his athletic career at William Carey next season.

Hannig batted .370 with 11 doubles and one home run to drive in 23 runs while scoring 24 to help the Indians advance to the MACJC State and National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region 23 semifinals.

"Chris played third base for us in just about every game this past season," said ICC head baseball coach Rick Collier. "He is an exceptional hitter spending most the season in the four or five hole of our lineup. I feel like he will be able to go down to William Carey and contribute to the team right away next season."

The Tuscaloosa, AL native was third on the team with a .447 on-base percentage.
