SALADO – Salado senior pitcher Drew Van Winkle committed to Concordia University in Austin on Monday. The right-hander will pitch for the Division III Tornadoes this fall after a mock signing in the Salado Gym.

“It feels amazing to finally know that you made it to the next level,” Van Winkle told “All the hard work and dedication you put into it, you finally know that it pays off.”

The 6-foot-4 Van Winkle helped the Eagles to the Class 2A state semifinals in 2013 and a current run into the Class 2A regional semifinals this season, where he averages more than one strikeout per inning.

Salado will face Nacogdoches Central Heights in a three game series this week at Franklin High School. Game 1 is set for a 7 p.m. first pitch on Friday night, with Game 2 scheduled at 12 p.m. Saturday and Game 3, if necessary, to follow. All games will be broadcast live on 1400 KTEM-AM.
