Congratulations to senior Stephen Acton, son of Tom and Lacey Acton, who signed a letter of intent to play baseball and bowl at Peru State College next year. Stephen has been a three-sport athlete at Falls City high school. He has shown leadership and contributed to every team. I know his teammates will be excited to watch Stephen as he competes in the blue and white for the Bobcats. During his senior season Stephen lead the team in batting average, hits, and on-base plus slugging, was 2nd in runs batted in, 3rd in stolen bases, and hit the team’s lone home run while handling the catching duties. As a bowler Stephen carried a 187-average, rolled a 286-high game, and a 702-series. We wish Stephen the best of luck at the next level!
